Leaving your pup at the local kennel while you head off on a family holiday isn’t just a costly decision, but it can be pretty heart breaking too (after all, who can say no to those puppy dog eyes?)
Boarding your dog in the local kennel is likely to cost upwards of £20 per day for a decent level of care, to include feeding and adequate exercise – money which could otherwise be spent on local attractions, pub dinners, and a bottle or two of wine to sip from the comfort of your very own holiday let in Suffolk.
The fact is, Suffolk is as much a holiday destination for dogs as it is for their humans – with the countryside full of great walks, expansive coastlines, and glorious rivers to play in. Best of all, our versatile collection of dog friendly cottages in Suffolk means there is a holiday home available for everyone.
Great walks for your dog to enjoy
One of the top selling points of a Suffolk holiday is the number of walks and footpaths available, from organised trails and routes like the Box Valley Walk and the Dedham Walk, to nature reserves and vast green spaces which allow you and your dog to wander as you please.
The pandemic and subsequent lockdown of 2020 put staycations on the map for Brits across the UK, with Suffolk coming in as one of the most idyllic and charming counties to visit. Ever since, the Suffolk landscape has grown to accommodate more visitor experiences, better facilities, and of course more holiday cottages with space for everyone – and that includes our collection of cottages here at Idyllic Cottages.

You only have to browse the cottages page of our website to see just how much choice we have on offer to travellers, whether you’re looking for a luxurious weekend stay or a place to call home for an extended and longer visit.
Our dog-friendly cottages range from accommodation two people to fourteen people, with the larger properties boasting estate grounds and private gardens which dogs of all ages and sizes can enjoy at their leisure – while you enjoy the facilities designed for our two-legged guests. In addition to the cottages themselves, Suffolk offers the kind of vacation experience which allows your dog to join you wherever you decide to go – with many of the country pubs and local beaches and parks all open for dogs to enjoy as they please.
Safe to say, when you visit Suffolk, you won’t find yourself faced with ‘No Dogs Allowed’ signs and areas for them to be tied up outside. Here in Suffolk, we really do welcome the whole family – two legged and four legged guests alike.
