Types of Accommodation To Expect


With Hot Tubs

Whether a barn conversion or a ground floor property close to the city of Chester, a private hot tub at a holiday lodge can really ‘seal the deal’. Take time out in your own hot tub and relax after a long day of dog walking and sightseeing across Cheshire.

Properties By The Coast & Beach

Cheshire may not seem like a coastal county, but there are actually dog friendly holiday lodges close to the watersides in Wirral, meaning there’s always the chance you can break from the city to enjoy a watery break away. Take in the ambience of your surroundings close to the coast.

Cheap Weekend Breaks

Cheshire is also popular for its affordability. Dog friendly lodges and cabins up near Chester are surprisingly cost-effective – meaning that if you want to explore the city, the picturesque villages or simply unwind for a day or two, a break away up here really will not break the bank.

1-2 Night Self Catering

Self catering in Chesire is a great way for you to break free from the old routine every once in a while. Book a weekend with your four legged friend and explore nearby historical sites and the very heart of Cheshire – you build your short break your own way!

About Holidays in Cheshire With Dogs

It’s not hard to understand why so many people love taking their pets on holiday to explore wider Cheshire. The city of Chester itself and its fabulous city walls often provide enough interest to staycationers. However, for dog lovers and family holidaymakers, there are more than a few holiday spots and attractions in the wider region worth exploring.

Knowsley Safari Park, for example, is a great family day out that’s likely to appeal to Cheshire holidaymakers. For dog owners, however, there is all the countryside you can explore beyond the popular city reaches. Explore the likes of Tattershall and Malpas, for example! There’s also plenty of clear links into North Wales, meaning you can make it a real cross-country holiday if you like.

The north west is also brimming with popular historical sites and picturesque waterways. Take your pets for walks along the River Dee and explore the nearby historical heritage of outer Manchester and Liverpool.

The Last Word

For us, Cheshire is a county with tons of promise and just about everything you could want from an all-over staycation. There are lots of lovely country trails, riverside walks and connections in and out of some of the most popular city centres in the north of England. Some of our favourites, of course, include Liverpool, Manchester and of course Chester itself, but it’s well worth looking at exploring North Wales to the south, with the city of Wrexham being a hotspot for many people.

For dog lovers – and of course their pets – Cheshire is a walking paradise. Waterside trails along the River Dee and wooded adventures out in spots such as the Delamere Forest are clear highlights for us – and we’re certain you will feel the same in time, too. If you and your pup are really into your waterside trails, then you will also likely want to take a peep out at the Nantwich Loop, one of the most popular country and waterside walks in the region.

Of course, there is more to Cheshire than its various walks and countryside spots, with it being brilliant for families, too. From the vibrant Chester city centre out towards Lyme, Tatton Park and Ness Botanical Gardens, there are some wonderful days out to be had in the region. Many people assume Cheshire to simply be the back garden of cities such as Manchester – and while that’s true to some extent, there is a lot more to get into here than you might imagine. You can trust us on this!

That’s why there are so many more dog friendly lodges and cabins opening up across the Cheshire region. The area tends to be replete with cottages and similar escapes, but for something a bit different, you might want to take a look out at cabins and lodges close to historical sites and picturesque villages. It’s pretty clear that Cheshire has enough of these, so do take your fill and explore with your pups as much as you can.

We’ve gone on a search to find the best open plan lodges, multi-storey cabins and more. All of the best cabins and lodges in our list are close to some of the most stunning slices of Chesire countryside while still having lots of easy access to family fun and city amenities. Of course, all nine of our lodge picks here also openly welcome dogs, meaning it shouldn’t be too hard to line up a few favourites before you go exploring.

It’s worth considering what you really want from the perfect Cheshire dog friendly lodge. Are you looking for a non working farm close to Chester city centre? What about a ground floor breakaway with a log burner and an enclosed garden? Of course, you might also be holding out for that perfect coup de grace, the private hot tub.

In any case, we’ve made sure to round up a wide variety of log cabins and lodges in Cheshire which are both pet friendly and which will appeal to a wide range of tastes and needs. Find yourself some favourites from our list and settle down in this wonderful county – and get out to explore stately homes, family parks, dog walks and countryside vistas whenever you’re ready. There are tons of things to see and do out in Cheshire, and now really is the time to book ahead.
