Dogs Rule!


We love having dogs stay here at Oak Tree Cottages, and welcome them with open arms. We really hope that they enjoy their stay, as much as we hope their human owners do, so we try to make our cottages, like a home from home, for them too. We know that coming to a strange and unfamiliar place can be a little unsettling, and therefore our only rule is that dogs are not to be left alone in the cottage, as after all, it is their holiday too. Don't worry though, if you would like a day out, without your pooch, please contact our local dog sitting service, who would be more than happy to help. Contact Shannons Sitting Services - Here or by phone - 07901 070 103

Walks from our door:

1.4 Miles Circular - Main Road

A Short circuit taking you along the Road around the back of the East Ruston Vicarage Gardens, down the main road and back to our cottages.

1.9 Miles Circular - Farmers Field

Half farmers fields, half quiet roads. This is the perfect combination.

1.9 Miles (3.8 Miles return) - The Star Inn Lessingham

Fancy a pub lunch or dinner? A nice walk to The Star Inn to build up an appetite, then a walk back to burn off the calories.

2.6 Miles Circular - Farmers Fields and Roads.

Fancy a little further than our other farmers fields walk? This one is for you! The perfect combination of roads and farmers fields.

2.7 Miles (5.5 Miles return) - Happisburgh

Great walk through quiet roads to Happisburgh. This route leads you to The Hill House Inn, however, it does let you know the turn offs for the Lighthouse or Happisburgh Beach. This route is Cycle friendly.
