Seaside holidays are always more fun when you can bring your dogs along. Is your dog gentle and well-behaved, or very energetic and playful? Either way, nothing beats that moment when you watch the tranquil sunset with your furry friend, after a late afternoon walk by the coast. There are loads of wonderful beaches along Norfolk’s coastline to take your canine companion to, and one of them is beautiful Blakeney. Lots of coastal locations in the UK do not allow dogs on the beach during the warmer months, so you’d have to leave them behind.
