Preparing for dog friendly holidays in the UK

Choose the right accommodation...
When it comes to dog-friendly holidays in the UK, finding suitable accommodation is key. Thankfully, we have a wide range of pet-friendly options all over the UK, from cosy cottages to welcoming lodges and holiday parks. Some of our properties even allow pets free of charge! Pay attention to things like how secure the garden is and if there are any restrictions on where the dog can go inside the lodge or cottage, or around the holiday park. Many establishments provide amenities specifically tailored to pets, ensuring a comfortable stay for both you and your furry friend.

Check the rules for sites and attractions...
Dog-friendly holidays in the UK offer a multitude of attractions and activities that cater to both human and canine interests. Visit dog-friendly castles, gardens and heritage sites, where your pup can explore alongside you. Be sure to check for any rules and restrictions – you’ll usually need to keep your dog on a lead and certain areas may be out of bounds. It goes without saying you’ll want to keep these historic sites and beautiful grounds clean, so please make sure you pick up any mess your dog makes.

Know the seasonal restrictions for beaches and National Parks...
The UK is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts and their furry friends. With an abundance of national parks, coastal paths and scenic trails, you and your dog can explore breathtaking landscapes together. From sandy beaches where your pup can splash in the waves to hiking trails that lead to panoramic views, there's no shortage of adventures awaiting you. Just make sure you understand the rules around taking your canine companion in advance. Often, you’ll find beaches are dog-friendly from October to April, but then during the busier seasons of May to September your furry friend is no longer permitted or there are designated areas. For National Parks, it’s common that dogs need to be kept on leads, particularly if birds are nesting or wildlife is grazing. Beware of restrictions changing and don’t assume the rules are the same everywhere, otherwise you may end up with a nasty fine! Even if there are no specific regulations, remember to always remain in control of your dog and pick up after them.
