Things to do

Top dog-friendly beaches

Walk, run and play on any of these beautiful UK beaches. As every single beach on this list welcomes dogs, you can lead the whole family to adventures on your coastal retreat. From award-winning bays that you didn’t know existed in Wales, to Cornwall’s paradise beaches or the wildlife havens that sit along Norfolk’s remarkable coast, there’s a whole host of sandy seaside escapes that we think you should add to Fido's beach holiday bucket list. Even Scotland has sandy coves you would be forgiven for confusing with a Caribbean beach on the shores of far-flung Jamaica or Barbados: don’t miss out on these seaside treasures.

Don’t leave your canine companion behind on your next beach holiday. Make it this year’s goal to visit at least one of the fantastic UK beaches on our list with Mutley in tow, giving him (or her) the chance to splash through waves and feel the sand between those paws. Take a look now at the beautiful sandy coves on offer and let us know which one you'd go mutts for!

Best dog-friendly properties for 2020

Never go on holiday without your beloved hound again - whether you're looking for a dog-tastic family holiday, a walking holiday with friends to shake up the routine walkies or perhaps even a honeymoon hideaway with both the human and canine love of your life, we can offer you a different breed of holiday. Take a nose around our best dog-friendly properties for 2020 to see which ones have been awarded top dog.

And just because you're taking your beloved bow-wow, that doesn't mean you have to forfeit luxury! While we have many holiday cottages with enclosed gardens and nearby walks to inspire your doggo, we also have luxurious and cosy holiday homes for humans to snuggle up in too. How about a trip to a cottage with a hot tub - lounge in the bubbles with a glass of bubbles or enjoy a warming retreat with a crackling wood burner where both the family and the dog can flop in front of the fire for cosy evenings after busy days out and about.

We have everything for every type of hound: seaside escapes where pups can bound across the sand; countryside cottages with endless walking trails to woodland hideaways where Mutley will find plenty of sticks to chase. Throw the dog a bone and browse our collection.

The UK's most dog-friendly pubs & places to eat

There’s nothing quite like settling down in a warm and welcoming dog-friendly pub after a day roaming your holiday destination with your favourite four-legged pal. Spend time stretching your legs on dog walks, visiting exciting attractions with your pet, and playing games back at your holiday cottage, enjoying an energising UK break, before your well-deserved dinner or drinks out. Offering up big lunches and delicious dinners, usually made with local produce too, your dog will no doubt be hoping for a tasty titbit! Some of these pubs, inns, and other places to eat even provide dog biscuits and doggy beer so your pup can join in on the feast too.

Watch the sun go down with a pint in hand and your canine companion by your side at a coastal Cornish pub, or dine out on a traditional hearty roast after a long dog walk through Yorkshire’s Hope Valley. Head to an ancient dog-friendly pub in the bustling city of Perth and discover the best of Scotland during your time here, or refresh and refuel in a cosy watering hole on the edge of Wales’ Brecon Beacons.
