Dog Friendly Holiday Guide

The UK has a fantastically diverse landscape which provides endless walking opportunities for you and your four-legged friend. You can enjoy miles of dramatic coastal paths, wooded valleys, lakes and fells, rolling moorland, enchanting forests or pretty riverside walks together. As well as a large selection of pet friendly holiday cottages, there are also many dog friendly pubs, beaches, gardens, parks, dog friendly restaurants and attractions that welcome well-behaved dogs.

Whether you are looking for a coastal retreat or a cosy holiday cottage in the country, taking your pet away on holiday with you can be incredibly rewarding. Whilst it may require a little extra planning, it can help to reduce the costs and anguish involved in putting your beloved pet in a kennel or trying to find someone to look after them.

With a wide range of dog friendly holidays available, Independent Cottages offers holiday homes that can accommodate one to multiple pets. You will be able to make contact with the owner directly to check that the property you are considering is suitable for you and your dog. Most owners are more than happy to discuss the facilities available which may include secure gardens and direct access to footpaths. You may even find pet friendly holiday cottages offering a few extra luxuries for your beloved canine including welcome treats, a comfy bed and a warm shower and drying area for wet muddy paws!

Tips for Choosing a Dog Friendly Holiday Cottage

If you are looking for a dog friendly holiday on a budget, consider taking your dog away out of the peak summer season. In spring or autumn, pet friendly cottages are normally cheaper, you have a far greater selection of dog friendly accommodation available and you will find fewer crowds. It is also worth noting that many dog friendly beaches lift their dog bans throughout the winter months in the UK, so you can enjoy wonderful coastal walks on empty beaches where your dog can have a good blast!
