Information For Dog Owners

You don’t need to leave your canine friends behind when you come and stay with Grey Seal Holidays. Dogs are very welcome in all our cottages and Norfolk is an incredibly dog friendly county. Three of our cottages have totally enclosed areas and all are surrounded by great dog walking and beaches where your pooches can run around to their heart’s content, Wells next the Sea, Holkham, Brancaster and Winterton on Sea are our favourites! Pooches will be welcomed with dog bowls, toys, biscuits and poop scoop bags. All our cottages are very close to dog friendly pubs so you can enjoy a meal or  a drink out with your furry friend snoozing under the table!
