Dog-friendly holiday lets uk

sad lonely dog owners away on holidayDog owners know that the best way of having a relaxing holiday is to take their beloved dog with them. This avoids owners fretting about their pets feeling lonely and dejected.

Owning a dog brings many joys but also a few problems and much responsibility. A dog becomes very much part of the family and it is difficult to be parted even for that week or two away on holiday. For this reason, pet-friendly holiday lets are a boon to people with dogs. There are cottages, dog-friendly apartments or pine lodges in all parts of the UK and Ireland where dogs are allowed. In certain cases, the accommodation may be super dog-friendly and the property owners may go out of their way to provide exceptional facilities for pets.

Dog sitting is on offer at certain holiday cottages. The property owners offer a service where they will look after guest’s dogs, take them for a walk and talk to them when the guests would like a few hours break to go sightseeing or out for an evening. Kennels may be an option at certain holiday cottage parks. A kennel and secure garden means that dogs can be left alone in the garden for a short period of time.

Devon and the Lake District have a reputation as incredibly pet-friendly holiday destinations. Lots of cafes and restaurants allow dogs. Holidaymakers notice a welcome dog water bowl left outside various premises, there are acres of open countryside that are crisscrossed by paths and trails where dogs can be walked.

dogs welcome holidays in rural areas

The national parks have enormous swathes of wilderness and as long as dogs are on lead near animals, there is no problem with taking a dog to stay in accommodation in a national park.

Holidays in cottages or log cabins on farms are another possibility. Again, there is the request that owners are sensible and do not allow dogs off lead when animals are about but otherwise, the miles of country lanes and woodland walks around farms are a source of joy to man and beast alike.

One of the best dog-friendly beach holiday destinations in England is the Isle of Wight. Dogs are permitted on certain beaches such as Sandown which are long, wide stretches of sand – a pleasure for anyone. The rural areas have umpteen places to walk with far reaching views.

It is easy to find great places to stay for holidays that suit dogs if you head for Britain’s wide open or underpopulated areas. The north of Scotland and much of Wales fall into this category.

Holiday lets that accept dogs tend to be furnished with practicality in mind. Floors and furniture is easy clean, there would be a good absorbent mat at the front door to clean muddy paws on entry.

The height of luxury for dogs is underfloor heating and there are plenty of rural cottages and log cabins that are thoroughly warm and cosy.
