Dog friendly holiday cottages by the sea
We understand that dogs are an important member of the family. Forget the stress and expense of putting your pooch in kennels because, in a dog friendly cottage, the whole family is welcome whether they are on two legs or four furry ones!
Around half of our properties are dog friendly cottages. So just because you’re going on holiday, it doesn’t mean you can’t take your best friend with you. Set tails wagging with thoughts of exploring the beautiful Dorset coast and countryside.

A self-catering cottage holiday is the perfect choice when going away with your dog. Many of our cottages have enclosed gardens making your holiday home a stress-free haven where the whole family can relax and enjoy themselves.
Exploring Dorset with your dog
Nearly all of our cottages have easy access to miles of dog friendly footpaths and circular walks. The health benefits for you and your dog are proven, so get your walking shoes on and take your dog out in the fresh Dorset air.
Inland you can stroll along tree-lined paths and scrabble up and down grassy hillsides. At the coast, you can stretch your legs and enjoy long walks along the South West Coast Path and visit some of the dog friendly beaches along the Jurassic Coast. Here you can both run on the sand or shingle and take a dip in the sea. Your dog might be keener than you for a swim during the colder months though!
A good walk for us usually includes a pub stop at some point. Fortunately, many of our local country pubs accept dogs too. A bracing winter walk can be finished with a well-earned drink while you and your dog warm yourselves in front of the fire. During the warmer months, you can relax in a sun-drenched beer garden with your four legged friend resting by your side.
Once you’ve made your booking, you can start getting together everything your dog will require on their holiday. Just ensure you pack their favourite food, chew toy and squeaky ball! Each dog costs £25 per week; (part week £20).
