About East Ruston Cottages

A tempting selection of over 20 genuinely very dog welcoming, self catering holiday homes in rural and coastal east Norfolk. Sleep from 2 - 10. Our dog limits are very generous and flexible, based on size and breed (but not breedist!) WE NEVER CHARGE FOR DOGS. There are dog friendly sandy beaches all the way round this coast and easy countryside walks inland. The Norfolk Broads is just inland and many boat hire companies allow dogs so just another wonderful thing you can do in this peaceful part of our dog friendly county of Norfolk!

We established our business because…

We regularly go away with our 4 dogs and had found it so difficult to find somewhere that didn't charge an arm and a leg for our dogs or limit us to *more than 2 well behaved dogs* and expect us to put up with lower standards! So we set up East Ruston Cottages when we bought and converted a barn - The Old Piggery - and have been joined by dog lovers with properties in the area.

Why dogs love what we offer…

Dogs love .... The miles of year round dog friendly beaches, all sandy (so good for digging!) and the miles of quiet, livestock free, easy countryside walks. Relaxed owners - who know their dogs can't escape from gardens/outside areas! Sofas they can crash out on, like they do at home (we provide throws). The home made dog biscuits for when they arrive.

The advice we give dog owners is…

Treat your dog to a holiday they will love (and you will too!). Take an opportunity to relax and make memories, walk miles, eat at a great choice of dog friendly pubs and cafes. Come and see how dog friendly this part of Norfolk is - you won't be disappointed!

“Red Roofs at Hickling”
by on 26th October 2020
our second stay at Red Roofs this year, already booked for 2021 as well, we love it here, well appointed and roomy home, perfect base for lots of great Norfolk beaches, 5 minutes from Sea Palling, recent makeover in the kitchen means you want for nothing, a new addition this year a stable door internally so you can wipe paws before entering the house from the garden. enter into a very large living room with great views of the boating house's and broad a real fire, for the chillier nights. the huge garden is great and recent improvements to the fence means no rabbits (malteasers) so now no snacking from my two thank goodness, in the garden you have a table with plenty of chairs and a new BBQ. out front you see the broad and the private road has a public footpath for exploring.
“Holmes House”

Just had a lovely relaxing holiday at Holmes House. Well equipped, comfortable and very dog friendly with lovely walks straight from the door. Couldn't have been nicer, even the weather tried hard.
