Dog Friendly things to do on your hols.............

If you're staying with us here at Pakefield with your furry four legged friend and are looking for things to do together, then have a look at the list below for a few ideas.


If you're in to your history and love visiting places steeped in it, then Suffolk is the place for you.

Languard Fort - Felixstowe - This fort has played a key part in the defense of our shores dating back more than 400 years.  In the company of your dog (as long as they are on a lead) you can explore the history and architecture of the fort.

National Trust Sutton Hoo - Here you can discover the story of the Anglo-Saxons at the burial ground of kings.  Dogs are allowed to walk the estate, but are not allowed in the museum.

Framlingham Castle - Steeped in 1000 years of history, there is plenty to explore with your furry friend (as long as they are on a lead).  Once a fearsome fortress, a centre of power and influence, Framlingham Castle was the place where Mary Tudor was crowned Queen of England.


Dogs are aloowed on most of the Suffolk coast, but some beaches do have restrictions in place during the summer months so make sure you check before you go!

Dunwich beach is a haven for canines and owners with sand and heathland.  You can also enjoy a beverage or two at the Ship Inn .

If seclusion is what you're looking for then head to Covehithe.  This beach is only accessible on foot.  


Ramsholt Arms Ipswich - Riverside pub and restaurant is dog friendly with some great walks nearby.

The Ship Inn Dunwich - 

The Ship Inn Levington - with panoramic views of the river Orwell.

The Ufford Crown, near Woodbridge - water bowls and treats on offer for your pooches too!

Family Attractions

 Looking for something to do for all the family, including the dog?  Why not have at look at the following attractions:

East Anglia Transport Museum Lowesrtoft, where there's a collection of trams and buses for all to enjoy a ride on.  There's also exhibition halls, period street scene, plus a afeteria and souvenier shop!

Suffolk Punch Trust Hollesley - The oldest English breed of working horse - the trust was founded to help protect the critically endangered Suffolk horses through its established breeding programme.  Dogs on leads welcome, with three walks to enjoy around the farm.


 The Coast is renowned for its wide open spaces, whether it be beach or heathland.  The Suffolk Coast and Heaths Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty gives you and your furry four legged friend the chance to enjoy the fabulous flora and fauna that we are so lucky to be surrounded by.
