Like many pet owners, husband and wife Dan Wiesel and Alysa Binder always included their animal companion -- a Jack Russell terrier named Zoe -- in their family vacations. Too tall to fit under an airplane seat, Zoe inadvertently limited the couple’s destinations to locations within driving range of their Florida home. But in 2005, Wiesel and Binder decided to travel a greater distance. Reluctantly, they flew Zoe in a commercial plane’s cargo hold. “After the plane landed, she just wasn’t the same,” remembers Binder. “It took almost two weeks for her to seem back to normal.”

Our furry friends are a source of undisputed joy, but also require extra provision and thought when planning a holiday. PetsWeekly runs down a list of our top pet-friendly locations, accommodations and dog-walking attractions for holidaymakers in Suffolk, England.

Pet-friendly places to stay

Cottages in Suffolk can present an excellent accommodation choice for families or couples holidaying with dogs (click here to see a company which provides pet friendly cottages in Suffolk). Offering plenty of wide-open spaces nearby as well as creature comforts for the non-animal members of the household – a welcome relief from negotiating hotel and campsite rules, while holidaying or caravanning with a dog or other furry friends. Central pet-friendly Suffolk locations include the notorious middle-class haven of Aldeburgh on the Suffolk coast (home to winner of both Britain’s best fish and chip shop, as well as the Sunday Times’ ‘Best for Culture’ in its ‘Best Places to Live in Britain’ listings), as well as such popular nearby towns as Snape (home to the Snape Maltings art complex) and the classic British seaside of Southwold.

Pet-friendly pubs

Being a traditionally rural farming community and more recent tourist destination the majority of Suffolk’s pubs tend to be very dog friendly, featuring spacious outdoor seating areas. Some pubs allow dogs into the pub and bar areas as well as outdoors – reassuring for rainy days – and come with water bowls and even doggy treats freely provided. Be warned, though, that your dog is likely to be petted to within an inch of its life – these types of pubs tend to be popular with families and children too. The Barley Mow at Witnesham, The Swan Inn at Hoxne, The Buxhall Crown in Stowmarket and The Star Inn in Wenhaston are just four that come particularly recommended by dog owners. Check out both Dog Friendly Suffolk/ and Doggie Pubs (and accompanying app) for a guide.
