Dogs at the Ship

A happy dog at the Ship Hotel

Brancaster provides the perfect base for taking your four legged friends for long walks along the outstanding North Norfolk coast. The miles and miles of unspoilt sand and shallow water are great for dogs and their owners. Also, at the top of the hill behind Brancaster Staithe is Barrow Common, again a great place for dog walking and offering mesmerising views.

The Ship offers 6 Dog Friendly Rooms, North and South Creake, Titchwell, Holkham, Thornham and Brancaster. Our Classic rooms can accommodate 2 dogs and our Deluxe rooms up to 3 dogs. We make a daily charge of £10 per dog and this includes a comfortable dog bed.

We like to give all of our guests the warmest of welcomes which is why we have upgraded our welcome packs for your four legged friends with handmade treats from Pooch’s Treats.

We also offer some dog-friendly tables in one our Restaurants, as well as a delightful large patio area to enjoy food al fresco. This space can be used whatever the weather, our retractable awning provides shade in the height of summer and can also be heated on cooler days and evenings.

We do operate a well behaved pet policy (any damage caused by pets must be settled prior to departure) Should your pet be particularly noisy you may be asked to vacate your Room, Bar or Restaurant table so other guests are not unduly affected.
