We all love a holiday with the family, whether it’s taking the kids somewhere exciting or enjoying a destination that’s a little more relaxed. However, it’s often the case that we are forced to leave our pets behind – something that can take the shine off even the most eagerly-anticipated trip.
But by choosing a dog friendly holiday, your pet can come along too! Indeed, there is accommodation that actively welcome faithful friends, so your pooch can enjoy the trip as much as you do.
You’ll find it’s possible to book this kind of self catering holiday cottage in a range of fantastic UK destinations. However, how do you know where is best for a family holiday with your dog? To discover the top three locations, read on.
Cornwall is a firm favourite among Brits seeking out gorgeous coastline, lively towns and quiet villages. It’s also a great place to take your pet, being home to dog friendly beaches and huge stretches of moorland ideal for letting them burn some energy. And there’s plenty to entertain the rest of the family, of course!
Looe could be perfect for families seeking some fun on the beach. Hannafore Beach can be found in West Looe – a lovely stretch of sand that welcomes pooches as much as people.
It’s also a destination known for the calibre of its cuisine and you’ll discover plenty of great pubs and restaurants perfect for filling a corner following a day out seeing the sights.
The North York Moors and the Yorkshire coastline is another great region for dog friendly breaks. This astonishingly beautiful national park is a haven for those who love the great outdoors and you’ll find there are seemingly endless opportunities for fun walks together.
As well as rambling, you could opt to go cycling around this picturesque landscape. Alternatively, why not visit some of the seaside towns such as Scarborough and Whitby? These are packed with attractions for visitors of all ages and so are sure to please the whole family!
Last but not least, North Wales is another great destination for this kind of break. Home of the much-loved Snowdonia National Park, here you, your family and your pooch can relax in one of the UK’s most incredible landscapes.
If you’re feeling energetic, you could try tackling the 1,085 metre-high Snowdon. Alternatively, you might like to go mountain biking together in the Coed-y-Brenin forest.
Whichever destination you choose, you’re sure to have a fantastic time when the whole family can come along – with no exceptions.
