Beautiful walks along coastal routes and sandy beaches
Cromer is situated on the East side of England, a coastal town looking out to the North Sea in the north of the county of Norfolk.
Cromer is a delightful seaside town with a late-Victorian fully functioning pier including the Pavilion Theatre. Predominantly a tourist location, it enjoys both an esplanade (our main feature image) and long promenade peppered with pretty coloured beach huts.
Cromer beach naturally has restrictions for dog walking during the busier summer season running May 1st – September 30th. During the summer restrictive months, one can still walk along the esplanade and promenade with your dog on a lead.
Out of season, it makes a glorious beach walk for any dog owner and their pooch. The beach is shingle with breakwaters and is accessible with sloping gangways as well as steps, but when the tide goes out there’s endless stretches of golden sandy beaches to enjoy.
Sheringham is about 4 miles north of Cromer and boasts even more sandy beaches. The back shore of the beach has breakwaters and pebbles, particularly around the town area, but exposing great expanses of glorious sandy beaches foreshore, at lower tide.
Sheringham like Cromer reserves the right to ban dogs on beaches during summer months and must be kept on a fairly short 1.8 meter lead at all times between the lifeboat station and groynes areas.
Having been centuries old strong fishing communities, you can feel safe by the water knowing that both Sheringham and Cromer have lifeboat stations. The RNLI have a website with helpful advice to remind yourself about sea safety.
Vets are available in case of pet emergencies close by at both Cromer and Sheringham, part of the Mirimar Veterinary Centre Practices.
If your staying in the area, then Sykes Holiday Cottages rental lets offer locations at both Sheringham and Cromer. If your looking for something a little different then there are several barn conversion style and period properties available for you and your pet.
If you want to travel between Cromer and Sheringham other than walking the famed coastal path, there’s a handy train line with about 18 trains running through the day taking about 10 minutes by Greater Anglia Train company allowing pets to travel.
Before you travel you may like to use our useful Guides, especially if you are a new pet owner.
Biggest doggie tips are to remember to take lots of fresh water and collapsible bowl for your thirsty dog and old towels to dry your dog if they’ve been swimming and to help clean off the sand before going home! Please remember to take your rubbish home with you. You may need to use a short or long dog lead and take a muzzle if you prefer your dog to wear one on busy beaches.
