Dog Friendly Beach 365 days of the year!

Our beach is dog friendly 365 days of the year.  Not always an easy thing to find these days where many beaches are restricted either part of the year or the whole year.

We discovered this Autumn whilst travelling with our dog, that beaches in France Spain and Portugal seem to have become even more restricted to dogs since we were last there in 2019.  We came across many signs telling us we couldn’t take our dog on the beach, even in winter when no one else was around.

It reminded us just how lucky we are here, to have a beach we can take the dog to all year round without restrictions.  

We also have many dog cafes and pubs within easy reach so this really is a great place to come on holiday if you want to bring your dog and know that they are going to be well catered for too!

If you walk along the beach to the east for about a mile you will come to the Bluebird cafe – open all year  round and you can buy your pooch a dog sausage to fuel up on while you have a nice coffee or some lunch.  Walk westwards along the beach and in the summer months you will very quickly come to Salt offering drinks, snacks and ice creams and again your doggy companions will be rewarded with treats!  

lIf you want a longer walk you could continue for about 2 miles to The Beach at Littlehampton – open all day 7 days a week all year – dog friendly, lots of food and drink options together with a watersports centre if you fancy trying your hand at learning a new sport.

Driftwood Corner is our dog friendly holiday cottage so check out availability here and we will look forward to seeing you and your four legged friends soon!
