VERY PROUD WINNER OF THE DOG FRIENDLY SELF CATERING AWARDS FIVE YEARS RUNNING!!! Why? Because we offer truly dog WELCOMING selection of properties in rural and coastal Norfolk. No charges for dogs ever and no limit in many of our cottages, sleeping from 2 to 10. Owner of the small and dog dedicated agency, Sue Allen, totally understands the holiday needs for dogs and their owners. All her holiday cottage owners genuinely love having dogs to stay!

DOG FRIENDLY SUBSCRIBERS ONLY.  Make a booking with us and use the discount code DogFriendly10 to get an exclusive 10% discount. Pop over to our website www.eastrustoncottages.co.uk to see what we have available!  And join our mailing list for exclusive extra discounts up to 15%. 

From our seaside chalet, through barn conversions, small and large, cottages in the countryside and by the beach and on to our big family houses and those right on the Norfolk Broads, we have something for everyone and for all your dogs too! Sleeping 2 to 10. All of them have properly enclosed outside areas, dogs are allowed on the sofas and all around the house, no silly rules, dog bowls provided, crates, stairgates, holiday tags, spare leads, beds, dog buggies and so much more… and a genuine welcome. 

We don't charge for dogs EVER, many of our properties are happy with UNLIMITED (yes, unlimited!) dogs and the others are very happy with 4 and more! But please don't think they are 'dog-eared' - far from it, they are loved and looked after and many are home from home for their owners - some are properly luxurious, others are more basic but still very dog welcoming. 

All our properties are in rural and coastal Norfolk, the quiet coastal bit between Cromer and Great Yarmouth, just on the edge of the Norfolk Broads too. Miles and miles of sandy beaches to run on all year round. Plenty of dog friendly pubs and cafes to visit. Take a boat out, with your dogs, on the wonderful Norfolk Broads.  We have a discount arrangement too with an electric boat hire company.

You can come for a week or for a short break. Relax in our lovely houses or go out every day to explore the wonderful, dog friendly Norfolk coast and countryside. Relax knowing that you and your dogs are very, very welcome.

And we're not a faceless agency - you will always get me, Sue Allen, to speak to or email. Georgie is my right hand woman running the business so you can always talk to her too - both of us have lived here for many years, know all of the houses really well and the area too. I have 2 dogs of my own -   a little rescue boy, Ernie and crazy Border Terrier, Mabel!  Georgie has lovely big Great Dane, Polly and busy little Spaniel, Penny. I have holidayed all around the UK for years with my dogs and genuinely think that Norfolk is one of THE most dog friendly areas in the country. I hope you can come and found that out too!

We offer so much more to our guests… you can order fish platters, pizza making kits, dog biscuit making kits to be delivered to your cottage for your arrival - all produced locally and passionately.  What about booking a facial or massage for your holiday at a local small salon.  We can lend you crates if you need them - all sizes, plus high chairs, cots, sofa steps and stair gates if needed and now dog buggies - perfect for older dogs to join you on the lovely long Norfolk countryside walks!  

All of our repeat guests get a choice of local vouchers to use when they are here too - we're big fans of supporting local businesses that we ourselves use.   Lots more information on our website here. https://www.eastrustoncottages.co.uk/support-local/.  Now we also sponsor our local First Responder team - local support and volunteering means a lot to us. 

Do you feed raw?  We have teamed up with the Raw Dog Food Company in Norwich (we use them ourselves) to give our guests free delivery to their holiday cottage and a minimum order of just £10.  They do a lot more than just raw food.  Take a look at our website for the order link.  https://www.rawdogfoodcompany.co.uk/east-ruston-cottages/

Jacqueline, May 2024

Recently stay in Brig Cottage in Scratby. Had the most amazing time. Cottage is beautiful, great location. Came home with two very tired dogs. Definitely would recommend. East Ruston Cottages was a pleasure to book with, so kind and helpful.

Jane, April 2024

We have just had an extremely relaxing week at The Crib in Happisburgh. It’s comfortable, cosy and has everything you need for an enjoyable holiday. It’s very dog friendly with beds, throws and bowl stands all provided. The owners are very responsive to messages and made the holiday more enjoyable as we knew we could contact them with any issues. We took our XL bully on holiday with us and the house and garden were very secure, allowing us to relax, knowing he was safe. We came back and have immediately booked for next year!

Christopher, March 2024

Discovered yet another amazing ERC property, this time at Winterton, Jack’s Shack. The owners have gone above and beyond in provision of both dog and human requirements in terms of practicality and comfort. Looking forward to our next two holidays that are already booked.
