Bring your dogs

Its been our dream to be one of the first B&B’s to offer a real home from home for dogs. We have taken our first dog away in the past for a weekend to a ‘dog friendly B&B’ and once we had read through the do’s and don’ts, it has ended up to be more fraught than if we had had someone look after him.

We decided that we want to offer something that little bit different We will therefore welcome your dog into our home as if he were our own.  We are well aware that some dogs like to sleep with their owners and at The Vines your dog(s) can too, all that we ask is that you use the dog covers we provide in the rooms during your stay.

Costs and what to bring

You don’t need to anything with you as we provide everything – bowls, dog beds, crates if required, and the most exciting thing of all toys along with a warm dog friendly welcome! In addition we can provide free of charge as many excellent walks as your paws will take.

Best of all there are four dogs in residence, Milo, Millie, Tia and Bella.

A stay at The Vines costs just £5.00 for one dog, £8.00 for two and £10.00 for three (per night)

So please come to The Vines, feel both welcomed and relaxed and let us get to cuddle and fuss even more of our four legged friends.

Dog friendly places to visit

There are so many activities that you can enjoy with your owner in the beautiful county of Norfolk including:

Dog friendly beaches:

Most Norfolk beaches allow dogs. You may have restricted areas around the major resorts, but walk half-a-mile in either direction and the restriction is usually lifted. Restrictions apply from May to the end of October. The best places in our experience are the empty beaches at Old Hunstanton and on the East Norfolk Coast at Sea Palling, Horsey and Winterton on Sea. The North Norfolk Coast has many nature reserves, but Holkham Bay is excellent for dog walking and you could also try Cromer beach.



Dog friendly attractions:

English Heritage has many dog freindly sites in Norfolk including Weeting Castle, Baconsthorpe Castle, Berney Arms Windmill, Binham, Priory, Binham Wayside Cross, Burgh Castle, Caister Roman Site, Castle Acre Castle and Bailey Gate, Castle Acre Priory, Grimes Graves, Church of the Holy Sepulchre, St Olave’s Priory, Thetford Priory, Thetford Warren Lodge – you can find out more at Other local attractions include ILPH Hall Farm – Rescue Stables for horses, Alby Crafts,Bure Valley Railway , Fairhaven Gardens , Poppy Line Railway , Gooderstone Water Gardens and Sandringham, Norfolk retreat of HM The Queen (country park only)
