Dog-friendly cottages in Suffolk
Suffolk is a county with a rich cultural heritage and stunning natural habitats to match. Our dog-friendly holiday cottages make it the perfect destination for holidaymakers escaping to the country with a dog in tow.
You'll find miles of prime dog walking territory over open fields and through wooded copses, as well as through the Dedham Vale Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Or you could head to the coast, where you’ll be greeted by an unspoilt landscape teeming with wildlife and home to a number of nature reserves.
The former home of the Coastguard, Nightjar is a ground floor apartment at the Coastguard Cottages on Dunwich Heath. The apartment offers wonderful views across the nature reserve and beyond. Wake up early and go for a dog walk across the heathland and through surrounding woodland. Afterwards, you could treat yourself to tea and cake at the neighbouring tea-room where dogs are welcome too.
This characterful pet-friendly cottage at the heart of Ickworth estate was once the home of Ickworth's head gardeners. Enjoy long dog walks in the estate's 1,800 acres of widlflower meadows and lush woodland. The cottage also has two private gardens, one of which backs onto a lake.
A unique property in a charming setting, The Round House is surrounded by a beautiful woodland glade. First used as a shooting lodge, and then a gamekeeper's cottage, it has been carefully restored but is still pet-friendly. Just a few minutes’ walk from Ickworth’s Fairy Lake and miles of uninterrupted walking routes, the cottage is the perfect place to bring along an energetic dog.
Situated on the outskirts of Thorington village, this pretty former gate lodge adjoining Thorington Hall is a beautiful, pet-friendly retreat in the heart of the countryside. With easy access to miles of stunning walking routes, it’s another great option if you’re arriving with a dog.
With space for up to 18 guests and four dogs, Thorington Hall is the ideal place for a celebration in the countryside. This enormous 17th-century farmhouse is surrounded by over 1,000 acres of farmland, so there's plenty of space for your four-legged friend to let off some steam.
