The Best Dog Friendly Cottages in the UK

We are on a mission to find the best dog friendly cottages in the UK and provide you with quality pet friendly holidays the whole family can enjoy. 

Types of Short Breaks for Pets

Across almost every region we are seeing owners add all kinds of inspiration and adventures to their getaway rentals. It’s not enough anymore to advertise a property with 2 bedrooms, a kitchen, and free wifi. With these self-catering holiday rentals customers want a touch of charm and extras like a tennis court, woodburner, lavish furnishings and sports onsite like fishing and golf. See below some of the different holidays for pets we cover. 

Pet-Friendly Lodges & Log Cabins

With dogs welcome

If you are looking for getaways and specifically log cabins. Search a brilliant selection of dog friendly log cabins to rent that provide the ultimate ground floor retreat for you and your canine four legged friend. Deposits start as low as £25!

Dog Friendly Holidays with Hot Tub

With dogs welcome

See a stunning range of perfect holiday cottages with their own private hot tubs. These luxurious dog-friendly holidays are made for relaxing not to mention a party or romance. After a long day head back and relax in your very own hot tub spa. Bubbles under the night sky, what could be better!

Dog Friendly Beach Holidays

That allow dogs

Dog friendly coastal cottages are ideal for long walks, days on the beach or some outdoor activities such as surfing. Treat your pet pooch and visit some of the most famous seaside resorts and coastline in the county such as Blackpool, Scarborough & Brighton. Who doesn’t love a day at the beach!

Multi Dog Holiday Cottages

That welcome more than one dog

These bigger cottage getaways usually accept more than one dog and are listed as multi pets. These family cottages that allow 2 or 3 dogs are perfect if you're lucky enough to have more than one furry best friend.

Houses With Enclosed Garden

Dogs welcome

Many dog cottages have ample sized enclosed gardens for the pups and kids to run around in. Plenty are fenced off securely making them not only safe for the pets but for a family with children also. You can expect the garden to be kept in pristine condition with lush lawned grass and well maintained patios.

Rural & Secluded

Dogs welcome

Rural properties are nearly always pet-friendly, it makes perfect sense. These cottage breaks tend to be away from people, so you’ll have miles of open countryside and privacy to walk, talk and relax. These areas for those that prefer secluded dog-friendly cottages and love to explore new surrounding.

Luxury Dog Retreats

Allowing pets

Pet friendly luxury cottages are the best if budgets allow! Kick back with extra trappings like a lavish bathroom, open plan, burning fire, games room and onsite hot tub. The luxury dog-friendly cottages found here, really are some of the finest in the UK.

Christmas Getaways

With dogs welcome

Not everyone likes to be away at Xmas, but for those who do, search our best collection of Christmas cottages that welcome pets as much as you. These festive pet-friendly breaks get booked pretty quick so don’t hang about.

Self Catering Holiday Parks

That allow dogs

Family holiday parks rarely have cottages to rent, but they are still the biggest selling dog-friendly getaways in the UK, they are usually more of a caravan or static lodge accommodation but are nearly always great pet-friendly places to stay. They can be found within walking distance of beaches, woodlands and national parks. See 10 we recommended.

Holiday Homes with a Swimming Pool

And dogs are welcome

With hot tubs growing in popularity in cottages, we’ve even seen a rise in onsite swimming pools. Having a swimming pool with the cottage will undoubtedly cost a little more, but these are usually large cottages for a group so splitting the expense will help.

Imagine a retreat having it's own indoor pool, if it's an outdoor pool in England, Scotland or Wales then pray for nice weather.

What To Remember When Traveling With Pets & Dogs

Much of the UK is a great place to travel with your pets, however some spots seem to be very popular and pets adore them. Some of the most visited places in England, Scotland & Wales include The Dales & Moors and of course, the Lake District. Each of these are brilliant because they all offer something unique, from beaches in the South, to the breathtaking landscapes and walks of Northern England.

When looking, just remember a few key points so that you all have a tail wagging time:

  • Attractions - Before you book, have a look at some of the attractions around the area for dogs days out. You don't want to be bored stuck in your cottage, so is always a good idea to do some planning and have access to great days out.
  • Country Pubs /Restaurants - If you off to the pub and are going to leave your pets in the cottage (check first some times they are not allowed to be alone) make sure they are not stressed as new surroundings might be difficult for them to adjust to. However, many premier holiday cottages with pets often have a list of pubs and local places to dine.
