You’ll be barking up the right tree with this lovely Victorian property in North Yorkshire, which accommodates up to four human guests and two doggies. Nestled between two national parks – the North York Moors (9 miles) and the Yorkshire Dales (10 miles) – it positions you perfectly for long, satisfying walks that’ll soon set tails wagging.
This cottage has been beautifully refurbished, with polished wooden floors and farmhouse-style features such as a stable door and floral soft furnishings. The cosy lounge is ideal for relaxing as a family, perhaps sitting down with a book while your pet keeps warm by the wood burner. The kitchen is great for feeding the dogs and cooking delicious meals to share at the table. On warmer days, take a cooked breakfast onto the patio and enjoy this outdoor space while your pets chew contentedly on their bones.
You’ll be in the village of Sandhutton, which has a charming inn where dogs are welcome to join you in the bar. There are excellent walking and cycling trails starting from the village, or you could head to one of two Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty, Nidderdale or the Howardian Hills, both 11 miles away. The market towns of Thirsk (4 miles), Northallerton (8 miles) and Helmsley (17.5 miles) are all worth spending a few hours in. For a historical day out, take a trip to the walled city of York (26 miles). At Castle Howard (29 miles), dogs on leads are welcome in the grounds, and there are even free bones for your pet at the farm shop.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
