Pet friendly cottages & self-catering accommodation in Dorset
We understand that dogs are an important member of the family. Forget the stress and expense of putting your canine in kennels because, with our dog-friendly holidays in Dorset, the whole family is welcome whether they are on two legs or four furry ones!
Around half of our cottages in Dorset 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 in Dorset is a perfect choice when going away with your dog. Many of our pet-friendly cottages have enclosed gardens, making your holiday home a stress-free haven where the whole family can relax and enjoy themselves. Just ensure you pack their favourite food, chew toy and squeaky ball!
Most of our pet-friendly cottages in Dorset 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 scramble 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, such as in Weymouth, Swanage or Studland.
A good walk for us usually includes a pub stop at some point. Fortunately, many of our local country pubs here in Dorset 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.
