From May to October, some of Norfolk’s busier beaches prohibit dogs from their sands. However, it is still possible to find some fantastic spots for a waterside stroll, especially if you know where to look. One of the best dog friendly beaches near Cromer is Overstrand. Located around one and a half miles from Cromer, the beach is linked to the town by a beautiful clifftop path, making it easy to get to and from the sands.
Thanks to the wealth of dogs and dog lovers in Norfolk, most of the pubs in the area allow well behaved pooches at least in some areas. In Cromer, The White Horse, The Albion, and The Red Lion are some of the most dog friendly pubs, however you’ll find that the majority of watering holes will let you in with your four-legged friend.
In general, stopping in at a café for a bite to eat with your dog in tow isn’t a problem in Cromer. A large number of the cafes in and around the town centre allow well-behaved dogs, but it’s always a good idea to check before you bring your pooch inside. Some of the cafés that allow dogs in Cromer are Buttercups Tearooms, the Blue Sky Café, the Jetty Café, Café Main and Shelley’s Pie and Mash Shop.
It’s all very well and good having a list of cafes, pubs and beaches that are dog friendly in the Cromer area, but if you can’t find somewhere to stay for the night, you might have to leave your pooch at home anyway. Luckily for you and your hound, there is a choice of dog friendly hotels in Cromer. The Cliftonville Hotel is actually one of the most pet friendly in the area. Dogs are welcome to stay in your room with you and we’ll do our best to make sure you and your dogs are happy and comfortable.
