Dog Friendly Holiday’s Around The UK
When it comes bringing your four-legged friend on holiday, it can sometimes take a little more consideration on where to stay, what to do and how to get there. So we thought we would round up our favourite dog friendly holiday providers and locations around the UK.
Run by the Forestry Commission, Forest Holidays provide some of the finest dog friendly accommodation in and around the British Isles, with the added benefit of a plethora of scenic woodland walks right on your door step.
Having experienced first hand both the Forest of Dean in Wales, and Deer Park on the south coast of Cornwall, we recommend them for their stunning, natural woodland locations, the quality of their accommodation, and the onsite services offered to guests.
Our lodge had enclosed outside decking (as well as a hot tub), which was perfect for early morning breakfasts sat in outdoors, taking in the fresh woodland air, with the girls, Flora and Gracie, joining us to squirrel watch.
For those looking for a touch of luxury during their dog friendly holiday look no further Unique Home Stays, a Southwest based team with offices in the heart of Newquay. They are a dedicated agency that create the best bespoke holidays in stunning one of a kind luxury accommodation, situated around the United Kingdom.
Should any of our readers be looking for a Cornish staycation, having grown up around the corner from the idyll of Trebarwith Strand, we love the look of the luxury cottage Gypsea Rocks, nestled between the soaring cliffs of the Strand. This rugged part of coastline invokes a sense of the past, with its dramatic history of smugglers, pirates and shipwrecks, and not forgetting the mythology of King Arthur.
From Trebarwith you can walk directly out on to the cliffs and along to Tintagel, and beyond into Rocky Valley for a cream tea pit stop. For the more adventurous of you, carry on to Boscastle for a drink at the dog friendly Cobweb Inn.
With four beautiful luxury dog friendly apartments, the Sail Lofts in St Ives is perfectly situated for a dog friendly holiday in St Ives. The apartments are located between two of St Ives’ most popular beaches, which are dog friendly between October and Easter. Your dog will be sinking their toes in the golden sands within moments of leaving your St Ives accommodation. The apartments are light and airy with all the conveniences of home, including Nespresso coffee machines and Bose sound systems.
The onsite team are always on hand to help with dog friendly ideas on days out and the apartment comes with a dog friendly welcome hamper especially for your four-legged friend. The human counterpart isn’t bad either containing the softest St Ives Bakery scones, creamiest Rodda’s clotted Cornish cream, and mouth watering Boddingtons jam.
St Ives as a destination is perfect for days out with your hound with many of the local café, bars and restaurants being able to cater for your doggy’s needs. There are also and abundance of walks in and around the local area to ensure you make the most of your time away with man’s best friend.
