Find My Favourite Dog-Friendly Holiday Cottages

Scroll down to view our range of dog-friendly holiday cottages in Britain from Cornwall to the Highlands. For pet owners, self-catering holidays mean you need never put your dog into kennels whenever you go on holiday in the UK. Whether these are luxury houses or quaint family cottages for couples, you are spoiled for choice with the options available for those who want to take their dog (or dogs) on holiday rather than accept the way more expensive kennels option. No pet passports are required!

Your faithful hound will be very welcome at all of these holiday properties. Save yourself the expense and worry of checking your dog into kennels and just bring them with you to share in your holiday and discover a whole new world of walks. To help you find and book a suitable property, read our blog Pet-Friendly Cottages for Holidays with Your Dog.
