Heather Cottage is a wonderful, cosy cottage in the heart of Happisburgh village. Quiet location, just a 15 minute stroll to the beach down a country lane (no pavement) and only 2 minutes walk from the local pub serving good food. Also not far by car from many other pubs, cafes, small local shops, beaches and country parks which are perfect for dog walking. A perfect retreat to get away from it all as the cottage itself is just lovely; beautifully presented, modern country style and immaculately kept with comfortable furnishings and everything you could possibly need during your stay. It was cosy and comfortable for just two of us, plus our dogs, but is also spacious enough for a larger family. The small garden was totally secure for our two terriers so we did not have to worry about them escaping. North Norfolk is a lovely place to visit and we would highly recommend this cottage as a base for exploring. Book securely and safely with East Ruston Cottages and have a simply fabulous holiday.

We have recently returned from a wonderful holiday in White Cottage with our furry foursome. Such a cosy homely cottage with a huge, safe garden for the furry family members to play in. Everything is so well thought out with every need possible catered for. There are some lovely walks from the door or a very short drive to cafes and beautiful beaches, all of which are very welcoming to dogs. Truly dog friendly in every way ! You honestly can't beat East Ruston Cottages for a perfect, relaxed break away.

We had a wonderful stay in Heather Cottage. The cottage was exceptionally clean and had all the things needed for a very dog friendly holiday. Throws, bowls, poo bags, delicious treats! The location was perfect for visits to the pub, walks on the beach etc. In these covid times we felt very safe in the cottage knowing that all the necessary precautions had been put in place. Can't recommend highly enough.

Fantastic accommodation so welcoming and dog friendly and ideally placed to visit beaches and woods lovely welcome everywhere we went. The cottage was so welcoming and homely with a lovely welcome from the owner and the cottage was very well equipped. with everything we needed plus the garden was fully enclosed so felt very confident none of our 6 dogs would escape it is so hard to find a cottage that will take so many dogs and to find one so comfortable and homely We enjoyed it so much we have booked twice for next year

After all that 2020 has given us so far, a stay in High Barn & the lovely Norfolk was just what was needed! We stayed as a large family group with 2 dogs and had a brilliant week. High Barn is a wonderful place with everything you could need for your holiday. The hot tub was an added bonus and we would definitely recommend you book this to use during your stay. The views from the balcony were stunning and watching the sunrise over the sea is something special. The dogs loved the secure garden, snoozing by the log burner and running on the ‘secret beach’. The welcome pack was great with loads of ideas of things to do. Between us, we did a lot in a week but highlights were a visit to Happisburgh Owls (book ahead) a visit to Horsey beach to see the seals and a boat trip on the broads. Other trips out included breakfast at Smallsticks Café, walks in Bacton Woods, Winterton beach, Cart Gap, Sea Palling, East Ruston Old Vicarage Garden, Meales garden centre and a meal out at the Lighthouse Inn in Walcott. We also ordered meals in from The Ingham Swan and The Mermaid’s Slipper which were delicious. Thank you Sue & Leonie for a very special family holiday with lots of memories to treasure. None of us wanted to come home! We hope to be back again soon.

This is the second time we have used East Ruston cottages and have booked a third for next year. As always properties clean, very dog friendly ( multiple dogs allowed rare to find )and welcoming. We stayed this year in Manor barn and loved it. Plenty of space and in good quiet location. All facilities were ‘top dog’! The owners very approachable and helpful. Use this company and you won’t regret it!

Thankyou very much for allowing us to have a fantastic week in thatchers, it really is a wonderful house set in a truly fantastic place. We had a lovely time relaxing in the HUGE garden, the dogs have loved it as well! It was super handy being so close to the beach as well, we went twice everyday. From the moment we pulled into the drive our jaws hit the floor, we couldn’t believe the sheer size of the house and it left us smiling all week. The house suited us all perfectly, there was plenty of space for us all to do our own things when we wanted and the kitchen/dinner/snug area worked really well when we all wanted to be together, the true hub of the house!
The dogs had an absolute joy of a time in that massive garden, running around it for as long as they desired and just having a good old time, the weather was lovely for a few days during our stay so we got to sit out in it and just relax. It’s so nice being able to hear the sea in the distance as well, it just makes you truly relax and forget about everything else that’s happening in the world.
A big thankyou for the welcome cake as well, it was delicious! We’d all love to come and stay again, so hopefully that can happen sooner rather than later.

Hidden Gem at Winterton-on-Sea was well named: it was a fabulous cottage backing on to the dunes. The cottage had everything we needed for a comfortable and cosy stay - even with Storm Dennis at its peak. It was warm & welcoming and even included a basket of goodies on arrival. Everything was geared up for a relaxing stay, with dogs catered for completely. I parked my car outside when we arrived and didn’t need to move it until we left the following Friday: Winterton had everything we needed right on our doorstep - a dog-friendly pub (Fisherman’s Return), two dog-friendly cafés (The Dunes & Poppy’s Tea Room), a Post Office and convenience stores & a fish & chip shop. What more could we need! The locals were friendly & welcoming too... And then there were miles and miles of unspoiled beaches and dunes to explore - utter bliss for dogs & people alike. We will definitely go back.

We stayed at The Crib in Happisburgh with our reactive dog Charlie. We
all had a lovely time. The cottage was exactly as described on East Ruston Cottages website, Charlie loved the garden and the beach which we visited every day.

We have had one of the best Christmases ever at Corner Cottage.The decorations were amazing.The welcome hamper was full of lovely goodies.The cottage was really cozy and the beds were really comfortable.The kitchen is so well equipped.I had no problem in cooking Christmas lunch,roast turkey and all the trimmings.We ate at the Star and they had a choir that night singing Christmas songs which we all sang along to.We also ate at the Vernon arms Which was really good.We took the dogs to the beach every morning which they really enjoyed especially our 5 month old yellow lab as this was her first experience of the beach.We cannot recommend this cottage enough.It is truly wonderful.We hope to return very soon.Also must mention Sue at East Ruston for making the whole experience so easy.

We have just returned from a long weekend at Thatchers. We had the most wonderful time!
The house is HUGE, as is the garden! There was plenty of space for the 10 of us.
The location is great - walking distance to a very welcoming pub and the beautiful beach and lighthouse.
We had fish and chips from Bacton which were really tasty and didn’t cost much at all either.
We visited nearby Horsey Gap (approx 30 minute drive away) where we saw the seals and their pups on the beach! (185 pups born this season so far!) well worth a visit.
We also went to Blickling Hall for a long dog walk/tea and cake. Also about 30 mins away and worth a trip.
We really appreciated all the extras at the house (dog bowls, beds, leads etc; children’s toys - outdoor and indoor, dvds, stair gate, cot, high chair; welcome cake and birthday Prosecco for the adults).
We had afternoon tea delivered to our door (see photo) and we also had a local beautician come by to give us facials and do our nails!
Some of us visited Felbrigg and others went swimming (private hire of the whole pool) - both recommended!
Sue from ERC made booking and organising a trip for so many people/dogs so easy! Thank you.
We can not fault the place!
We hope to return to Thatchers soon. Thank you for such a wonderful holiday!

My friend and I have just had our second stay at Milestone Barn. As soon as we arrived we relaxed, as did our three Greyhounds and one Pointer

I had a couple of requests, which the owners were happy to do. Nothing is too much trouble for them.

Sadly we had to come home early, due to me having a bad fall on the road and breaking my arm. Got a lovely phone message from Pat (the owner) when she heard we had come home early.

If you want a relaxed holiday in a lovely converted barn, in beautiful surroundings, with The Paxton way literally across the road, then book up now.

Our 1st stay at Thatchers but not our 1st East Ruston holiday. This house is perfect for family time. Us, our sons, daughter in laws granddaughters and 7 dogs between us. Huge garden which was loved by children and dogs alike. The walk to the beach. The food at the Hilltop inn. So much to see an do. We will definitely be back there next year.

We stayed at Thatch Cottage as a large family group. It is a stunning cottage in a quiet location. A huge, dog safe garden with beautiful views. Walks from the door and so many places to visit nearby including Eccles beach, Cart Gap, Happisburgh, Horsey, Winterton-On-Sea, Sea Palling & East Ruston Old Vicarage Gardens to name just a few! We would recommend The Star Inn Pub, Smallsticks cafe and Poppylands cafe. Sue was brilliant at helping us find the right property for our needs. Wouldn't hesitate to recommend and already looking to book again. Thank you :-)

This was our fourth stay in an east Ruston cottage and was once again a relaxing break. Red Roofs is a beautiful rambling house right on the broads. Comfortable and spacious, clean and inviting. The garden is fully enclosed and huge! Our pup really enjoyed running around outside. I wouldn’t bring any of our other dogs though as the fence on one side is quite low. Other than that it was faultless.

A lovely, comfortable, welcoming cottage. Everything we could possibly need, and more, was provided, including a welcome pack of goodies. 100% dog friendly, beds included. A large well fenced garden which was ideal for the dogs to be able to wander in and out. A short walk to the beach for our early morning rambles, and not far to Bacton woods and other walks too.
This is our second stay at The Crib and would definately recommend it to all our friends.

A wonderful warm welcome from the owners of this lovely comfortable spacious cottage. Delicious homemade cake waiting for us on arrival, along with all the basics needed, milk, bread, eggs, tea. coffee etc. which were much appreciated after a long drive! Perfect for a holiday with your 4 legged family members, from handmade doggie treats to dog beds of every shape and size & a totally enclosed rear garden, everything needed for our dogs had been thought off........ and more! Really well equipped cottage along with a beautiful patio and outdoor furniture to enjoy an afternoon/evening meal and a perfect spot to relax with a drink whilst watching watch the setting sun. Such a quiet and beautiful location with lovely views across the fields up to the church, but only 20 mins from the beach, we would higher recommend and would love to return!

Just spent a great week at Milestone Barn - booked through East Ruston Cottages.
The barn was really well-equipped for both dog and humans, with great views over the countryside and lovely, cosy one-level interior. The location was perfect for countryside footpaths and just over a mile to the local beaches at Trimingham and Mundesley. Both were exceptionally quiet while we were there mid-March (perfect for us).
We've stayed at a few cottages managed by ERC and have found each experience to be wholly positive. Dogs are truly welcome and Sue is eager to share tips and recommendations about the local area to suit your individual needs. I've recommended this company to all my friends with canines in their family and several are also loyal ERC customers now.

It was our first time using East Ruston cottage but we were so happy we chose Hidden Gem to spend a wonderful weeks holiday it definitely lived up to its name, the facility’s in the cottage were perfect , the location amazing for walking the dogs straight onto the dunes and beach and the village had all you could need, pub, chipshop, post office and local shop. The cottage was so homely and spacious for us and our 3 dogs. The special birthday cake and bottle of bubble was a wonderful surprise that greeted us on arrival. All the information and the Pubs and areas to visit were most welcome , we had some delicious meals out and all the pubs allowed our boys in. We will definitely be returning .
Thank you again

Having used East Ruston Cottages before, we had no doubt The Walnut would be another beautiful property and we were not disappointed.

The Walnut is stunning inside and out. Stella and Paul should be very proud, especially Paul who did the build. The booklet showing the old farm building being transformed is very interesting. Everything about the property is high spec. Paul even had USB charging points put in and there are plenty of sockets (you can never have too many sockets).

The welcome hamper was scrummy and our dogs (3 Greyhounds and a Pointer) enjoyed the dog biscuits.
The beds and the Egyptian cotton bedding were divine. As soon as we put the throws (supplied) on the sofas our dogs took over. At one point we thought we would have to sit on the floor.

Nothing was too much trouble for Stella and Paul. I had requested a summer duvet and fan and both were there.

We saw an Owl and often heard them. Also Muntjac deer and birds of prey. If you want a stunning property, in a beautiful quiet area, the The Walnut is the place.
