Why not take your dog on holiday

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. There are also many dog friendly pubs, beaches, gardens, parks, restaurants and attractions who 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 dog in a kennel or trying to find someone to look after them.

With a wide range of pet friendly cottages 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 pet. Most owners are more than happy to discuss the facilities available which may include secure gardens and direct access onto footpaths. You may even find some offering a few extra luxuries for your four legged friend including welcome treats, a comfy bed and a warm shower and drying area for wet muddy paws!

If you are looking for a holiday on a budget, consider taking your dog away out of the peak summer season. Accommodation is normally cheaper, you have a far greater selection of properties available and you will find less crowds. It is also worth noting that many 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!

Before you set off on your travels, take a look at our top tips for keeping your dog safe on holiday.
