The 1st October is a date for all doggie diaries as many UK beaches lift their seasonal dog bans. There are of course, year round dog friendly beaches or partially restricted beaches that allow dogs during the summer months but come the 1st October, dog owners have a much greater selection of fantastic beaches to choose from in the UK.
The weather in Autumn may not be as hot as the summer months but it often brings with it some pleasant surprises, so why not take advantage of the ‘green light’ and visit some of our beautiful beaches while they are restriction and crowd free? You may even find the cooler weather more pleasing for you and your dog when taking on the cliff top challenges of the coastal paths (after all, there’s over 18,000 miles of coastline in Britain to explore!).
The UK has some of the finest beaches in Europe and Autumn is a perfect time to get the sand between your toes and dip your paws into the water. Any disadvantages the weather may bring, are certainly made up for by the cost savings you can make on holiday accommodation, with the summer peak season out of the way. So why not treat yourself (and of course your four legged friend) to a break away while the beaches and holiday costs are at their best?
At Independent Cottages we have plenty of last minute offers to ‘snap’ up, with a search facility allowing you to find dog friendly cottages in pretty much every corner of the UK. We also have a search facility for those who are looking for multi-dog accommodation (you can search for properties that take 2 dogs or 3+); and for those who prefer not to compromise on quality just because they are taking their dog away with them, our collection of 5 Star and luxury holiday homes is sure to please.
So before the winter is well and truly upon us, why not take advantage of the milder Autumn weather and the quiet beaches and treat you and your dog to a weekend away by the sea? What could be nicer after an invigorating walk along the beach, than to return back to a cosy cottage to warm up in front of the roaring log fire?
