Dogs are welcome at The Ship

Dog-friendly accommodation -

Muddy paws are welcome at The Ship!

Are you a dog owner looking for dog-friendly accommodation for a short break or holiday? Your pet is part of your family and you may be worried about the cost and/or stress of leaving them in kennels, with a pet sitter or even a trusted friend.

The Ship at Dunwich in Suffolk is a place for the whole family to unwind, including its four-legged members. We understand that dogs need holidays too and we'll warmly welcome your canine companion with a bowl of water and dog biscuits. Well behaved dogs are allowed to stay in a number of our rooms and dine with you in our cosy bar, conservatory or breakfast room.

One feature that our guests love is the enormous garden where your dog is free to walk or play anytime. Just a short stroll away, you can enjoy a selection of fabulous long walks on heaths and in forests or on the all-year-round dog-friendly Dunwich beach.

We recommend our ‘Inn to Inn’ walks between The Ship at Dunwich and our sister hotel The Westleton Crown, where your dog will be equally welcome.

Please let us know that you are bringing your dog when booking so that we can ensure you are given a room that provides truly dog-friendly accommodation.

Send us a picture of your pet at The Ship at Dunwich by emailing and we will add it to our gallery.
