Pet Friendly Holidays - view our dog friendly cottages & lodges


Our waterside dog friendly holiday cottages, glamping and lakeside lodges will give you the freedom to bring ALL of your family members along with you on your UK holiday, even the furry ones!

No need for kennels or pet passports here! We offer a wide variety of self-catering pet friendly holiday accommodation around Britain; including holiday properties with enclosed gardens or near dog friendly beaches or with access to some great countryside and waterside dog walks.

For pet owners, the best thing about staying in a holiday cottage or lodge is that you can bring your dog with you. Not all of our cottages & lodges take dogs, however each property will state in its description whether pets are accepted or not. Sometimes it will state 'by arrangement', if so, the breed will need to be checked with the owner of the property. Pets are typically charged at an extra cost. Property owners will sometimes consider other pets.

Choose your dog friendly holiday lodge or cottage from an array of popular UK holiday locations, including pet friendly holiday rentals on the Norfolk Broads, lodges on the Cotswolds Water Park, log cabins in the West Country, bothies in Scotland and riverside holiday homes in Wales or Northern Ireland.
