Dog-Friendly Woodbridge Guide

Thankfully, many places in the Woodbridge area are dog friendly, so you can spend the day out with your pup and relax later in a cosy Inn without having to drop your pet back home.

The Maybush Inn is a dog friendly pub who highly recommend popping out for a walk with your pooch before returning for a meal and a drink. Likewise The Cherry Tree and Ye Old Bell and Steelyard in Woodbridge are both also dog friendly and the latter has a lovely garden for you to enjoy in those summer months.

Perfect beaches for pets

Felixstowe beach has dog restrictions in place from May until September, however there are dog friendly beaches on either side where dogs can be kept on leads, stretching from Spa Pavilion to Wheeler Road. These areas are well signposted and easy to find, so don’t worry about having to leave your dog home alone when setting out for a day at the beach. Aldeburgh beach is a beautiful stretch of coastline, just half an hour’s drive from Woodbridge. It has restrictions in the summer months but just north of the town, from Wentworth Hotel all the way to Thorpeness, the beach is totally dog friendly!
