One in four people in the United Kingdom have a dog, but many of us would rather not leave our four-legged friends in kennels when we go away. That's why we provide a wide selection of dog friendly accommodation on our website.
Dog friendly holiday cottages are one of our most popular collections as more and more visitors want to take the family pet away with them on holiday. Typically our visitors are looking for their dogs to be safe, have great walks on their doorstep and superb scenery either coastal or rural to explore.
Many of our cottages offer an enclosed garden or patio, providing an ideal setting for your dog to enjoy the outdoors in comfort and safety. For most dog owners knowing that their four legged friend is not going to be able to run off in a new area is extremely important and many of our dog friendly cottages have enclosed gardens and patios for just this reason. Relax in your cottage knowing the pooch is fine and having fun playing outside.
Dogs like variety just as much as us and the chance to explore new areas and landscapes is great fun for them as well. You only have to see the excitement from your dog when they see the open expanse of a long beach or coastal path in front of them. The UK has plenty of dog-friendly beaches for you and your pooch to enjoy whilst you’re on holiday.
Taking a trip with your pet can be an amazing experience. There are many benefits to traveling with your dog, including the opportunity for you and your dog to bond more closely together.
The benefits of booking a dog-friendly cottage include:
Spending quality time with your dog
Enjoying the great outdoors without having to worry about picking up muddy paws
Opportunities to take your pooch along for a walk around the local area
A chance to experience the delights of country life
Exploring the many beautiful spots around Britain where you can relax and unwind, such as beaches, parks, historic sites and gardens
