Save yourself the stress of finding suitable (and costly) kennels or accommodation for your dog when you are on holiday. Pack the dog bowl, basket and lead and bring him with you!
Taking your dog on holiday with you provides a great excuse to get to know the local area and also keeps you active, meaning you can enjoy a guilt-free cream tea or two as well as a guilt-free break without leaving your dog behind.
A self-catering holiday is the best way to combine a holiday with your dog with a change of scene for you.
Staying in one of our pet-friendly cottages gives you the perfect excuse to get out and about to enjoy fresh air and beautiful scenery.
There are plenty of dog friendly pubs and cafes throughout this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. In most pubss and a lot of cafes and restaurants, your dog is welcomed warmly and often even offered a biscuit and a bowl of water.
