Southern Wales is an excellent place for pet-friendly cottages with enclosed gardens, with plenty of walks, countryside and sandy beaches for the whole family. The following are some beautiful places with plenty of walks and beaches for you and your four-legged friend: Llyndrith Country Park has acres of woodland for dog walking, plus a water park.

This is a country with a myriad of things to explore and enjoy. It’s an area that has been used as the setting for some of the world’s most famous novels and films. One of the great things about Scotland is that it’s a very pet friendly place to travel and enjoy a vacation in due to its vast countryside. This country welcomes dogs with open arms, from the tall mountains of the Highlands to the white sands of some of Scotland’s beaches. There are a variety of fenced dog friendly accommodation to pick from.

New Forest

One of the more popular destinations, The New Forest is a great place to go if you’re looking for a relaxing break with dogs. It’s an open area for walking, cycling, off-road driving and horse riding. Dogs are welcome on all of the New Forest footpaths and bridleways.

Types of Pet Friendly Cottages with Secure Field

Small Yards

We see that most enclosed garden cottages are in charming market towns or near dog friendly beaches. In many cases, they may be advertised as having an enclosed garden, yet it’s more likely a secure yard area, so be sure to check the imagery supplied before you book.

Rear Patio & Garden

The enclosed and secure dog friendly holiday cottages are what book out the quickest. They are dotted across the UK and everywhere in every seaside town and market town. Expect a nice lawn area, secure fencing that hopefully is dogproof, and a hot tub if we are lucky.

Large Fields or Paddocks

Due to the fact some of the cottage holiday rentals are rural, they have the equivalent of what you and I would call a field or enclosed paddocks. Finding dog friendly cottages with large enclosed gardens and stunning views is possible, but you should expect to pay a little extra.

Sharing the great outdoors together comes naturally to owners and their furry companions, so it is hardly surprising that more enclosed garden dog friendly cottages offer a getaway ideal for families and couples alike.

Boasting up to 4 bedrooms and with the added benefit of an enclosed garden, there are cottages perfect for a mini break.

In addition to the comfort cottages with enclosed gardens can provide for your dog, it is also essential when considering which holiday homes and cottage stays you would like. Several owners have mistakenly chosen properties with no safe and secure gardens or where they are not permitted. 

It has resulted in their dogs acting up and running free in the vicinity, disturbing other guests. All cottages in this article include a designated garden that is enclosed and safe for your dog to explore. 

The most important details to note are below when considering which dog friendly cottages with an enclosed garden. It’s always worth paying a slightly higher price to know they’re safe.

A dog friendly cottage with a secure field has natural barriers to keep dogs in your garden. This could be in the shape of perimeter walls or dog-proof fencing.

It’s also worth bearing in mind that many insurers will not cover any damage or loss you may incur through your dog escaping, so you must know that the property and its contents are safe from any such issues.

Picnic tables and benches or the inclusion of other outdoor furniture make them ideal locations from which to keep an eye on man’s (or woman’s) best friends while relaxing with a drink or some tasty alfresco food.

Last Word

The above list of ideal holiday accommodation, cosy cottages holiday lodges with enclosed and secure gardens for you and your four-legged friend provides a wide choice of options when looking at your next pet-friendly holiday.

Or any market town located in the heart of England, there are always plenty of options available with the stunning countryside with rolling hill views and outstanding scenery with walking routes for sightseeing or spending relaxing days doing absolutely nothing.

The beauty of renting holiday cottages is that you can choose when and where you go and the size of the cottages, along with pleasing yourself (and, of course, your pooch).

Thanks to modern technology, you can also choose how far “away from it all” you get. Then again, if you can’t handle all that quiet, why not take a walk by the many lakes, rivers, mountains and caves within 1 mile of these stunning locations. 

In addition, you and your four-legged friend will never be too far from the warm welcome of a local dog friendly hostelry.
