Suffolk Dog Day – near our holiday cottages

As the name suggests, it’s a day for dogs in Suffolk! Owners are allowed too! It’s a charitable event and during the last seven years it has raised over £330,000 for the Suffolk Community Foundation, which supports Suffolk Charities charities and community groups. The Suffolk Community Foundation has given out almost £10 million since 2005. This event is such a hot with our holiday cottage guests and it’s literally just around the corner

A Day at the Dogs

Suffolk Dog Day has been popular with our holiday cottage guests ever since the start as it’s been going longer than we have. Just! The 2014 event was the 7th and raised £45,000 to help community groups throughout Suffolk. It’s set in the grounds of the stunning Helmingham Hall just around the corner from our holiday cottages
