One of the events people most look forward to during the year is their family holiday. As a nation where 27% of the adult population owns a dog, a lot of families are looking to take their canine companion along with them. In single dog households, the selection is vast and finding a cottage that will accommodate them and their dog is pretty easy but what about us with more than one canine? As a family of 4 adults and 3 dogs, these companies have provided us with the most options for our yearly vacation.
1. Canine Cottages
This company features over 4000 dog friendly properties located all over the UK. With a search function of up to 5 dogs, finding a property for your pack is much easier than you thought. We love this site for its broad selection and for its easy to use filter function. Many of the properties are tried and tested by their team of canine critics meaning you know only the best for your dogs.
2. Pets Pyjamas
Similar to Canine Cottages, this site is a compendium of properties from across the UK. This site includes both cottages and hotels with over 16,000 properties on their books. There are often dogs go free promotions to take advantage of too!
3. Dog Friendly Cottages
A collection of dog friendly cottages spanning from the Yorkshire Dales to the South West. Featuring a range of property types including tiny log cabins, cute cottages and large country manors it shouldn’t be too hard to find your perfect holiday here.
1. Norfolk Hideaways
We decided to take our pack to the extremely dog friendly Norfolk this year. The selection of properties on this site were absolutely perfect for our needs and we managed to find a gorgeous property right on a dog friendly beach. The absolute dream for our canines!
2. Holidays in Cumbria
This company comprises of just 2 properties but with houses sleeping 6-8 people and an unlimited number of dogs welcome, we think this is the perfect place to take your family, canines and all.
3. Hele Barton Cottages
Perhaps our favourite holiday location, Cornwall is the perfect place to take your dogs off-season. These properties are situated on a 500 acre farm near Bude, allowing you and your dogs plenty of space to explore. The converted farm properties sleep up to 4 dogs so your pack is definitely welcome here.
4. Marsdens Cottages
We discovered 31 properties that sleep at least 3 dogs on this Devon based site. The properties are more on the higher price range but feature some beautiful luxuries and range in size from sleeping 2 people all the way up to 18 people so you could invite the entire family with you (or just have extra space for your dogs, we won’t judge).
5. Pack Holidays
Specialising in multidog holidays in Norfolk and nearby areas, Pack Holidays has a fantastic selection of properties for your canines as well as a search function allowing you to look at properties most suitable for a reactive dog. We love this added feature as reactive dogs need holidays too!
6. Boturnell Farm Cottages
A collection of properties situated on a farm in Cornwall that allows an unlimited number of pets to holiday with you (including horses). This company is so pet friendly they have a doggy first aid kit, throws for the sofas and 8 acres of land to explore. What more could you need?
