Hi All! Can anyone recommend any dog friendly breaks in the UK? Our pup travels really well and we could stop with family on the way so open to anywhere in England, Scotland or Wales. We’re looking for somewhere that has plenty that we can do with the dog, i.e. good walks, dog friendly bars/restaurants etc. It’ll just be me, my husband and our pup. Recommendations for areas/activities/accommodation would be much appreciated! x
My friend who has a beagle always raves about the Lake District for a dog-friendly weekend! Another Place hotel has rooms that are all dog-friendly!
Or how about Norfolk? Lots of beautiful beaches, dog-friendly pubs and long walking routes. The Victoria Inn could be an option?
The Retreat at Elcot Park is very dog friendly. Lots of space in the grounds for dogs and they allow dogs in the nice, spacious bar area and the orangery for dining. Lots of nice walks from the hotel too and they can give you maps of different routes etc. It’s also a really great hotel. Nice spa etc. There is also a vineyard really close by that offers tastings and tours. Haven’t managed to go yet but will next time. It’s called the Winding Wood.
Thank you both, I’ll look these up!
Hi, my husband has dog friendly stays on our farm near the Suffolk coast - uppergrovefarm.com or Uppergrovefarm on Insta.
Very near to Aldeburgh, which SL have written a piece about recently!
My go-to for a UK break is Salcombe!
Both the Gara Rock Hotel and Salcombe Harbour Hotel are dog friendly, and the hotel restaurants are also highly recommended. Overall, Salcombe is very dog-friendly
Ooh lovely, thanks very much!
My auntie really rates The Feversham Arms in North Yorkshire. Dogs are made just as welcome as guests and there’s a great spa, for you too. Plenty of lovely countryside to explore and a short journey to York x
We do love Yorkshire so I’ll look them up, thank you. Not been to Cornwall (shocking, I know!) so I’ll have a look, thank you!
Hi! We’ve been on a few amazing dog friendly breaks up north/north Wales that I’d highly recommend. Pale Hall in Bala North Wales is incredible, almost all rooms are dog friendly including the bar/restaurant and the grounds are beautiful. Devonshire Arms Hotel and Spa on the Bolton Abbey estate in Yorkshire near Skipton is also amazing, with direct access to the Bolton Abbey estate included with your stay. They have a dog washing area too in case your dog gets very muddy on their walk and dog towels. Their sister hotel in Pilsley on the Chatsworth Estate is also fab with amazing walks nearby. Their pub restaurant is also dog friendly and the food is amazing. If you fancy the Lake District Linthwaite House in Windermere has incredible dog friendly fell suites and the views and food are also amazing.
Wow, thank you so much! These all sound lovely
Also The Fish Hotel has great dog friendly rooms
My friend got married at the Devonshire Arms… partly because it’s dog friendly! We all went for a nice walk around the abbey with the dogs the next day – perfect!
So many hotels are now dog friendly. All Hotel du Vin properties and Malmaison are dog friendly. A lot of Hilton hotels. Stone Easton park near Bath. The Black swan at Helmsley in North Yorkshire. Lots in the Cotswolds. If you go to Booking.com and use their dog friendly filter it is a useful starting point. Mr and Mrs Smith also have a pet friendly filter. We have often stayed at the Devonshire Arms in Bolton Abbey which is very dog friendly.
I find Pet’s Pyjamas a great place to find dog-friendly places to stay - loads of different options to choose from all across the UK!
I use Kip Hideaways. I filter for dog friendly places. They are great as leave nice little treats and the places are a little different. I went to a farm - barn conversion near Ludlow which was brilliant. Lots of great walks, good food areas and a folder was provided highlighting things to do and dog friendly places.
If you love Yorkshire we have a Chapel, which is dog friendly. It’s in Askrigg, which has three pubs, a Brewery and a lovely little deli for flat whites and croissant. Obviously, as it’s in the heart of the Dales it has great walks but we’ve lucky enough to have many just out of the door which take you to fantastic waterfalls.
