The last year has been challenging for all of us, but there’s one member of the family who’s also had it harder than normal and has been a constant source of support. Our dogs have been right at our sides through the challenges of lockdowns, constantly raising a smile and keeping us company while we were apart.

With the hope of brighter days just around the corner, it’s the perfect time to treat your four-legged friend to their biggest adventure yet – a dog-friendly holiday. After all those boring short walks around the block, your dog deserves long adventures along sandy beaches and plenty of trails to explore. We offer hundreds of properties that welcome pets as warmly as they do their humans.

So, what makes the perfect break to get tails wagging?

A big sandy beach

If there’s one thing every dog loves, it’s the chance to run free on a big sandy beach. There’s just something magical about watching your dog chase the waves and dig for treasure on a stretch of coastline. After all those limited strolls during lockdown, wouldn’t it be fantastic to let your best friend off the lead and watch him delight in the Great Outdoors again?

We have pet-friendly properties in some of the UK’s best-loved beach resorts. Make sure you check for any restrictions on dogs during the summer months before you book your break, as there are plenty that welcome our pets all year round if you do your research.

Plenty of walkies

Swimming and sand digging aside, many of us are enjoying the simple pleasure of just following your feet with our dogs in tow once more. The South West Coast Path rolls on for more than 600 miles, so there’s a stretch to suit every owner and every pet. You’ll find plenty of pubs along the way who will happily welcome your dog with a bowl of water and a treat.

That means plenty of opportunity to while away sunny afternoons making new friends and making memories with your faithful best friend. Many of our pet-friendly holidays are found within easy reach of the South West Coast Oath, so it may even be on your doorstep.

A cosy home from home

After every adventure with our dogs comes the sheer joy of getting home and cosying up for a well-earned rest. Our pet-friendly properties have everything you need to relax in style in between walkies. You’ll find cosy cottages, quirky roundhouses and spacious homes with style waiting to welcome pets and their owners. Just imagine dozing in front of a crackling log fire while you dream or your next beach walk…now that’s a dog’s life.
