Top Places for a Doggie Holiday

If you are looking for a real family holiday where you can take your dog along and have a fantastic time then it can be hard to find dog-friendly hotels and other types of accommodation. Luckily there are lots of people out there that understand how important it is to bring your dog with you so it doesn’t miss out on the fun.

There are various sites where you can find dog-friendly accommodation and helpfully The Telegraph published an article recently to name the best pet-friendly hotels in Britain. The list comprises of some fairly expensive, top quality options including:

Four Seasons Hotel Hampshire 

If you want to mix great quality with pet-friendly facilities then try the Four Seasons at Hampshire. At £275 per night as a minimum, you certainly won’t be keeping costs down but if your budget stretches to this hotel then the whole family should be happy.

Hotel Endsleigh, Devon 

A more reasonable offering from this Devonshire hotel, from around £165 per night plus £20 per night for any furry friends. The area has great surroundings making it an ideal place to go out walking.

The Milestone Hotel, London 

At around £300 per night, you need to have deep pockets to stay at this place. Whilst the quality is top-class (even has a Pet Concierge!), I’m not sure how much dogs will appreciate traipsing around the paved streets of London and I’d hate to see the scenes at Trafalgar Square when they catch sight of all of those pigeons!

Now for those people who haven’t won the lottery, what are the more realistically priced options for dog lovers? 

The Lake District 

The Lakes in the north of England provides some of the best trails in Britain and is the ideal place for walking. You will find plenty of dog-friendly pubs, restaurants and hotels including:

  • Ouse Bridge Guest House
  • Fellside Holiday Cottages
  • The Old Vicarage
  • Lane Head Farm Country Guest House

Dogs simply love the Lake District, with its numerous lakes and gorgeous green surroundings. You can pick walks as difficult or easy as you like, from hikes up the selection of peaks or a flatter option of walking around one of the lakes. Windermere is hugely popular and if you go in the warmer months you will be able to find a lovely traditional pub to sit outside and enjoy the weather.

Travelling to the lakes is fairly simple as it is close to the M6 motorway and getting around the place is pretty easy by car. If you want to have a few drinks and leave the car, then you can always look up local taxi services and car sharing services like

If you want to treat all of the family, including the dog to a great holiday this year head to the stunning Lake District and take in the fresh air in the quaint countryside. As well as being doggie friendly, you can easily keep the kids entertained with a range of watersports and adventure activities.
