Two stunning barn conversions in the heart of the Norfolk countryside, offering genuinely dog friendly holidays.

Running Hare Barn and The Old Piggery are situated in a quiet lane on the outskirts of East Ruston village and overlooking the lovely North Norfolk countryside.  We are a short drive from several sandy, dog friendly beaches and there is a network of easy, livestock free walks from the door.

Both barns have been converted to include many ‘green’ features – see our ‘Eco Info’ page for more information.

Each has pamment or brick floors throughout the ground floor with a secure outside space at each, making them ideal for dogs who are very welcome at no extra cost.

We have no limit on the number of dogs you can bring.

The barns can be booked separately or together, sleeping up to 16

Covid-19 Update 11th April 2021

We are very pleased to say that, following the recent Government announcement, we have been given the go ahead to reopen on a limited basis from Monday 12th April.

From 12th April until 17th May we are able to open to single households.

From 17th May until 21st June we are able to open to up to six guests or two households.

From 21st June we are hopeful that those restrictions will be fully lifted.

We know that the current advice is subject to change and want to reassure you that if the Government has to reintroduce further lockdown measures in the future, either locally or nationally, meaning your holiday can’t take place, then we will of course give you a full refund of any payments made or move your holiday to a future date if you prefer.

We’re pleased to have been awarded the ‘We’re Good To Go’ certificate in partnership with Visit Britain, confirming that we are following Government and Industry Covid-19 guidelines to maintain cleanliness and aid social/physical distancing. We will continue to monitor the Government advice closely and will take great care to follow their guidance fully, to protect our guests, ourselves and our cleaners.  Details of the guidance can be found on the Government website.

If you would like to have a chat about your holiday, or a proposed booking, my contact details are at the top of the page.

Best wishes
