Holidays with dogs: where to go

When you're taking your dog away with you on holiday, you want to make sure the place you're heading to has everything you need for a comfortable stay.

It's important that you and your four-legged friend are looked after and feel welcome, and also that you know you can all relax.

So, whether you're planning long walks, a city-break or a relaxing stay in the countryside, find somewhere that's right for you and your dog.

Along the coast:

If your dog loves to splash around in water, taking a holiday along the coast could be just the ticket. And there are plenty of beautiful, dog-friendly beaches around the UK that are definitely worth visiting with your pup.

The south coast is toppled high with hidden gems. Counties such as Devon, Cornwall and Sussex are particularly bountiful in soft, sandy beaches and some stunning views.

Norfolk is beautiful as well as notably flat – ideal if your dog has lost its gusto for long walks and steep hills. It's also home to The Norfolk Broads – great if you're in the mood to give your legs a break and relax on the gentle waterways the county has to offer.


Explore the countryside:

Steep hills aren't for everyone! But if you have an energetic dog who loves to be out and about, heading over to Wales, the north of England or Scotland could be just right.

Over in south west Wales, the Brecon Beacons National Park is particularly beautiful – just make sure dog isn't too adverse to a little rain. Pembrokshire and Snowdonia National Parks are equally as breath-taking.

Scotland has plenty of gorgeous lochs to walk around that have stunning backdrops. And if you like a challenge, the Highlands are definitely worth the hike. Rugged peaks hemmed by stretches of green and a glittering sea-expanse. A great place to get away from it all.


In the city:

If your dog is one of the smaller breeds, heading up Ben Nevis is probably not going to be the best plan. A city break is the best way to ensure that both you and your dog get a well-earned rest, as well as a chance to get out and about.

Even if you stay in the countryside nearby, spending a couple of days soaking up the culture and enjoying some time in the warm, is a great way to relax.

Dog-friendly pups, cafés and bars will have you and your pup feeling at home in no time and if you fancy a spot of pampering, why not plan a day trip to a dog-friendly salon or spa?

Some of the more well-known spas are mainly situated in and around London, but look carefully and you'll find lots of other places offering dog-pampering services so that you can give your dog a well-earned treat.


Your dog will love spending time with you no matter what you decide to do. And having the chance to bond with your pup is really worthwhile as well as thoroughly therapeutic for everyone involved.

So, grab your bags and get ready to book your dog-friendly holiday!
