The Sea Marge Hotel in OVerstrand i THINK has some dog friendly rooms. It is just down the road from me and we have eaten there a couple of times and its good. Think its a bit expensive to stay, but there again it will be being Christmas you are after. Overstrand has its own beach, which you can take dogs on at that time of year (not durnig the summer) but the beach we use is open to dogs all year and its a short drive from Overstrand and has free parking although the lane to it is a track so no low cars!!!!

Have a look at this.
It is the hotel of Gaulton Blackiston who's sometimes on TV.
It has a Michelin star and will be expensive.
Says they take well-behaved dogs. :wink:
I haven't been there but came across it when I was looking for somewhere to go.
Hope you find somewhere nice. Xx

(Dee, have you thought of asking the Norfolk Doodlers for suggestions? And you may even be able to get to one of their Meets whilst you're there... x)

Jacob, Nat and I can recommend Congham Hall. We went there last Christmas and had a great time. We will probably consider it again next Christmas (2016).

They have dog friendly rooms which open out into a courtyard.

I think anything over Christmas will be expensive so it was not a cheap break but the food was good quality.

We have looked at staying at Morston Hall and have had Sunday luch there which was really good. However I think it would be in the category Very Expensive over Christmas. There're no rich men in the graveyard though so I'd definitely like to try Morston Hall at some point.

We have also stayed at the Sea Marge again nice food but I would say it is a little bit more traditional and perhaps a slightly older cliental. Not sure what it offers over Christmas.

Hope you find something to your taste and pocket. :D

Have you looked at the dog-friendly properties in North Norfolk, Dee? There are some large ones that would fit your family. (You'd just need everyone to pitch in with the cooking, etc...) And then you could always see if you could just book somewhere for Christmas lunch.
We looked at some for this weekend's 'Last of the Summer Whine' Meet at Wells, but they were too expensive as there's only two of us! :(
Good Luck with the search!

We are all booked at Norfolk Park in a lodge and as you say Anne we have booked a hotel for Christmas dinner. It was becoming a nightmare and even so we booked the last two lodges!

I have been on Norfolk doodles and have asked if there are any walks between 24 and 28 so may be able to meet some people but if not, I am so looking forward to long walks and fresh air, so don't care how cold just not tooo wet

Brilliant news, Dee! Norfolk seems to be a popular venue... (if accommodation prices are anything to go by :wink: ) There are some lovely beach walks, and I'm sure some of the Norfolk Doodlers will be up for a breath of fresh air over the Christmas period. You do realise that we're all going to need photos though, don't you? :roll:
