    Does anyone know of any dog friendly beaches in the east coast, especially where you can let them off to have some fun?

    I'm not sure! We take Holly down to Barton-On-Sea and Weymouth (South Coast), however dogs aren't allowed on the beaches between May and October.

    We just went to random beaches to see if dogs were allowed...

    This website lets you join up as a free member and gives you the option to search for dog friendly beaches etc by county
    Welcome to the dog friendly website
    The free option gives a pretty good service.
    Sorry I can't recomend any personally as I don't know the east coast at all.

    There's a small beach on the east coast called Fraisethorpe. It's pretty big and sandy and quite quiet. The access is through someone's farm, so you have to pay them to park (but it's way cheaper than normal beach pay and display anyway) and you can have a bbq or a picnic and play with the dogs as much as you want at any time of year...the only downside is that it doesn't have the other stuff that goes with beaches like amusements and food stalls and stuff, just one burger van at weekends in the summer...but for me, that's a positive - just don't go for the day without your picnic. It's pretty clean too. It's just south of Bridlington.

    PS: One word of warning - it's got a reputation locally for being a naturist beach!! I have never seen anyone that wasn't fully clothed but have had a funny look when I suggested my friend take her dog there!
     
  6. Just back from Sandsend, and we were OK there, but to me that is the North east coast!
    So I am assuming you are talking lincolnshire, you are free from Sandilands right up to sutton on sea, you have to then come off for a small stretch but can go back on and are free to let them run right upto mablethorpe, again you have to come of the town beach - but the other side of the town beach is lovely, with the dunes backing onto it (near the big caravan site).
    you have around 6 miles of sand there! Do you want some more! coz there is plenty in the other direction also, Huftoft direction

    Was just about to post about Mablethorpe from the steps northwards, but DT beat me to it. :thumbup:

    Last time I visited there was a great cliff top car park there too, with access down some steps straight onto the beach.

    Were Fraisthorpe fans too take our dogs there every New years day if we can and also other times in the year, never seen any naturists yet either.:scared:
     

  10. That car park is still there! :thumbup::thumbup: but we seldom park there - last year think it were £4 a day!
    We park at sanidlands or huftoft, it's free there.
