Hastings is on a shortlist of places to spend a week in July with my wife and our little dog. I’ve found the perfect accommodation that looks like it will tick our boxes, however when I do research on the town as a dog welcoming place the results concern me.
Firstly the beach. I visit lots of UK coastal towns. It’s always pretty simple to equip yourself with prior knowledge of where you can and can’t let dogs have a run on the beach. Google this for Hastings and you get confronted with Council orders of prohibited areas and “keep dogs on leads notifications. This in itself is putting me off the place. I just want to know where the little furry one can let off some energy and have a good time. I don’t need a lecture. The vast majority of dog people are responsible and sensible. This is why I’m factoring in the requirements of our dog into the choice.
So information from those in the know will be very gratefully received.
