There’s a reason why the Yorkshire Dales and West Yorkshire are so well-loved. Great fun for dog lovers as well as families, the rolling hills of the Yorkshire Dales National Park really are unmatched in the region, and you really can’t get a feel for the area from pictures alone. Take your pet along the Pennine trails, too, if you really want to start breathing in that wonderful Yorkshire mountain air. The Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty up here are relatively untouched, and to cap it all off, there’s that famous Yorkshire friendliness and hospitality right on your doorstep, with local village and town scenes all around.
Whether you’re looking for a ground floor holiday lodge or rental that’s close to the North York Moors National Park, luxury lodges or a pet friendly chalet that sleeps 2, sleeps 4, 6 or more, we’ve rounded up plenty of great properties and picks from some wonderful Yorkshire hosts. This really is a corner of the country that’s well-known for its amazing hospitality, and what’s more, you may even be able to find yourself a Grade II listed building or two to stay in at the last minute!
If you’re the sort of holidaymaker that wants to explore the Yorkshire Dales and cities of Yorkshire as much as the countryside quaintness, we really can’t blame you. Some Yorkshire’s best pet friendly parks and walking trails are easy to find across city regions such as Sheffield, York, Leeds and beyond. If you want to take the kids somewhere, Lightwater Valley theme park is located in Ripon and is well worth the visit.
Of course, we must mention the coast. The North Yorkshire coastline is truly magical, with blustery sea walks waiting for you and your pets up in ‘vampire country’, aka Whitby. Grab yourself some kippers for breakfast and take a look around a number of stunning quays and streets. There are pet friendly beaches in Whitby and Filey, too, meaning you and your pets can go exploring the sandy straights in your own time.
Yorkshire is one of the best ‘untouched’ regions in the North of England. It’s wonderful for dog owners thanks to the sheer rolling greenery for miles and miles around. Grab one of the North Yorkshire dog friendly log cabins up in the rural reaches and look out over fabulous Nidderdale. Take the time to explore picturesque village after picturesque village. Village pubs up here really do hark back to a quainter time before wine bars and gastropubs – meaning if you’re looking for an experience akin to what you’ve seen on ‘Emmerdale’ and ‘Heartbeat’ over the years, you’re in the right area.
The Dales and the Pennines will help you get away with your dogs up to the heavens of Yorkshire, allowing you to look down upon what the locals fondly call ‘God’s Own Country’. Many TV series and movies have been filmed in the local countryside, and of course, classic novels such as Emily Bronte’s ‘Wuthering Heights’ were actually set in Yorkshire’s vast, green open spaces.
From river basin areas to compact towns and cities, we’ve helped to make your search for the best lodges in Yorkshire that little bit easier. Choose a fantastic place to take your dogs no matter the breed, your family and enjoy the truly magnificent surroundings. If you’re able to find yourself a Freeview TV and a hot tub at the same time, it’s all the more to your benefit!
Trust us – a dog-friendly holiday up in Yorkshire and beyond the North of England really is spectacular. Let us help you get there by booking one of these luxury dog friendly escapes.
