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!

“Another great holiday courtesy of ERC”
by on 1st July 2019
We stayed at I Chapel Cottage in Lessingham, which is near Happisburgh. It's a lovely comfortable cottage and very well equipped. The location is really peaceful and there are lots of good eateries, and many fab beaches near to the cottage. The stairs are challenging - K2 next year!
“The Perfect Dog Friendly Holiday”

I have been using East Ruston Cottages for 4 years now and have never been disappointed with the properties we have stayed in.
If your're looking for truly dog friendly accomodation, this is the company to book through, plus they are real, live human beings that you can talk to!
“Heather Cottage ”
by on 27th May 2019
Our 2nd visit to the lovely comfortable Heather cottage. Ideally situated in the village with an easy walk to the beach and a stones throw from the pub.
Exceptionally dog friendly accommodation, East Ruston cottages are the best! Dog throws, beds, towels, bowls, brushes provided plus some lovely homemade dog biscuits. Our dogs were made as welcome as us! Excellent.
We have already booked again for next year.
