Types of Pet-Friendly Accommodation That Have Late Deals

Discount Cottages

Cottages are usually what springs to mind when booking dog-friendly holidays. There are so many cottages to rent that are dog friendly across the UK. These are where you’ll find the most last-minute availability, late deals and discounts.

Whatever’s on your wish list, be it a large sun terrace with a dining area, games room for the kids, a ground floor bedroom or private parking for multiple cars, you’re guaranteed to find your ideal place for your eleventh-hour pet-friendly break.

Often more secluded and without the restrictions of holiday parks, there are special offers on picture postcard holiday cottages for families nestled in areas of outstanding natural beauty to quirky fisherman’s cottages in vibrant harbours. All of which are sure to have Fikdo’s tails wagging.

Cheap Lodges

No other accommodation gives off that holiday vibe than a wooden chalet or lodge. Purpose-built, these Scandinavian-style homes are often in more rural locations with doggy adventures to sniff out right from the front door.

Last-minute pet-friendly lodges can be found on their own or in a dedicated holiday park. These are great for families as some offer onsite amenities and activities, from horse riding and archery to restaurants and luxury spa treatments, all at short notice.

Last minute celebration? These are not just a cabin in the woods; all these pet-friendly log cabins near the UK’s best destinations are fully equipped with everything you need for your stay, and most have some outdoor space to relax, enjoy a BBQ and maybe even a hot tub.

Glamping Deals

Getting back to basics and wrestling with tent pegs and camping stoves is only for some. That’s where glamping with dogs comes into its own. A blend of camping with all the luxuries of 5-star accommodation, these private tents, converted outbuildings and eco-friendly domes dotted all over the country are perfect for a last-minute weekend away.

We found a huge selection of last-minute dog-friendly glamping deals from the highlands of Scotland to the South Coast, ideal for those wanting something a bit different from your standard holiday cottage.

With Hot Tubs

Sometimes we all need a break from the stresses of everyday life. Cottages with hot tubs and dog friendly don’t usually go hand in hand but they can make all the difference for a cheeky late break.

Soothe aching feet after all those long walks with your canine companion in the Lake District or fun days out at a North Yorkshire seaside resort, or relax with your loved ones under a starry sky with a glass of bubbly.

Is that a good idea? The good news is there are loads of hot tub lodges and even glampsites with hot tubs and last-minute cancellations and late availability, so you can get a great deal.

Coastal Bargains

Is there any better feeling than booking a last-minute break by the sea? After all, what pup doesn’t love playing on the sand and the sights and smells of the coast? The thing about living in the UK is you never know what the weather is going to be like.

Booking a last-minute dog-friendly holiday on the coast means you can check the forecast first before heading off.

There are thousands of late deals, cancellations and special offers for pooch-welcoming properties around the UK coast from Cornwall to Inverness. Some offer free private parking (plentiful in a busy seaside town), others have storage for sports equipment, and lots have woodburning stoves perfect for chilly nights on those last-minute winter breaks.

Caravan Holidays

One of the best things about canine-friendly caravan holidays is that everything is on tap, from swimming pools and pubs to leisure facilities and fun activities for the kids. UK caravan parks can be found in some of the country’s best destinations, from South Wales to the Peak District National Park.

Modern dog-friendly Caravans are equipped to the highest standards with all mod cons, sleek appliances and every home comfort. Many offer some outside space, free private parking BBQ area, and maybe even an indulgent Jacuzzi.

With more late deals than you can shake a stick at, why not check out caravanning in style with your furry friend?
