Whether that’s as a couple, a family, a group of friends or just you and your loyal four-legged friend, we are here to help you find the best of our remote cottages across the UK.
Remote dog-friendly cottages in England
Offering unsurpassed tranquillity and surrounded by open fields and woodland, this gorgeous secluded cottage also offers a running stream for your pooch to dip their paws into. Wander up the bridle path to the moor where you can stop for a rest and have a bit of alone time with your best pal.
Beautifully situated on the edge of the Peak District National Park and next to the main path for the ascent to Kinder Scout, Kinder Cottage is the perfect place for those dogs and humans that enjoy a challenging walk. Just grab your walking boots and enjoy the amazing wildlife on display.
As rural and isolated as you can get, The Cowshed is nestled in 800 acres of rolling Dorset farmland. With a selection of footpaths straight from the property, you can walk for miles undisturbed with only your dog and the wildlife for company in this stunning remote location.
With an abundance of Christmas trees all around, these secluded lodges are great for relaxing with your favourite friend. You won’t even have to leave home as there is a farm shop on site for provisions. For an older dog, it is perfect – just sit companionably side-by-side watching the sun setting over the trees.
This delightful stone cottage is perfectly situated near the River Wye for lovely waterside walks. There is a log burner to cosy up to when you get back at this charming dog-friendly cottage– just you, the dog and a good book – perfect!
Gather the dogs and their tennis balls and head for the moors! Set in the picturesque North Yorkshire National Park, The Granary is perfect for long afternoons of walking and ball throwing – just remember to take enough water for you both if you are out for any length of time.
Remote dog-friendly cottages in Wales
On the edge of the Brecon Beacons, this remote barn is the perfect getaway and luxurious to boot. Sadly, your pooch cannot use the hot tub but can certainly sit next to it with a chew while you are enjoying a glass of champagne! Walk across to the National Park on The Epynt Way – you won’t even need to set foot in the car – great for dogs that get car sick.
There’s nothing more enjoyable for a dog than a splash about on the beach and this secluded property, set in seven acres on a working farm, offers the nearby Anglesey Coastal Path for just that. Benllech, one of the many beautiful beaches you'll find in Wales, is also well worth a visit, where fine golden sands and clear blue waters will make this a magical day out.
