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.
