Pet-Friendly
Boating Holidays on the Norfolk Broads

 
At Barnes Brinkcraft we are very used to seeing the whole family on holiday, and that doesn’t just mean the kids
 

Which boat should I choose for a pet-friendly boating holiday?

 
Lots of our customers bring their dogs and a few even bring their cats too. We happily accept pets on all our boats, and in all our holiday cottages. We’ve chosen the list of boats below because they are easier for dogs (especially larger ones) to get on and off. The boats may have lower sides or wider decks.
 
Dog Life Jackets for your boating holiday
We have a selection of dog life jackets available at the boatyard from size small to xl. Try one on Rover for size when you arrive.
 

Where can I walk my dog on the Norfolk Broads?

 
The Beautiful Norfolk Broads makes a very good venue for a dog-friendly holiday. With plenty of walks
 
Our favourite moorings with good walks are
  • St Benets Abbey
    • you can make this walk as long or as short as you wish. Call in at the Dog or Kings Head on your way
  • Salhouse Broad
    • Its a great place to let your dog off the lead for a short run before bed. 20 mins gets you to the Fur and Feather Pub, And if you feel like stretching your legs further this is a great option
  • Wroxham to Coltishall – Round Walk
    • There is a lovely dog walk that takes you along the riverside into Coltishall, and then you can return via the path next to the single gauge railway running between Wroxham and Aylsham
  • For more suggestions, the Broads Authority have some excellent suggestions here 
Almost all pubs and restaurants on the Norfolk Broads are pretty pet friendly, it’s worth checking in advance about any restrictions in restaurants though 

How much does it cost to take my dog on a boating holiday?

 
We charge an extra £35 per dog on board (max 2 dogs) and will supply dog life jackets for a refundable deposit of £10
 

Top tips for bringing your pet onboard your boat

 
A boat can be a strange environment for dogs to start with. To help settle them, please bring their own bed or blanket and a selection of their own toys. If you have a small soft travel cage it may also help them feel at home. Ensure you make a place for them and their water bowl
 
Don’t forget to pack the lead, poo bags and any medicine they need. It may also be useful to add a dog towel if they have a habit of swimming (wet dogs in a boat are not a match made in heaven!)
 
please don’t let your pet up on the seating unless you’ve put a cover on it
 
Top tip – make sure your pet is in a cabin when mooring up. That prevents them from jumping off the back of the boat when you least expect them to.
