Pet-friendly cottages & accommodation on the Llŷn Peninsula, Wales
For canines who like a little history and heritage on their holiday, take them to the beautiful Llŷn Peninsula in North Wales. This breathtaking stretch of coastline and its tucked away coves and beaches are a delight for those with two legs and four, the 84-mile stretch of coastal path following the rugged peninsula through a series of fields, cliff and beach.
The Pilgrim’s Path to Bardsey and the sandy beach of Porth Dinllaen on the northern coast make an interesting day out or if you prefer your walks with a mountain backdrop, head south of the peninsula to the perfectly-named Porthmadog, the gateway to the mighty Snowdonia National Park. You can still get a little beach here though at the open, wide beach of Black Rock Sands. Further west, the pebbly beach of Criccieth is hound-friendly and you can even pop up to the castle with your dog.
An extra special treat are the lost woodlands at Plas Glyn Y Weddw, where wild flowers and a beach leading to a dog-friendly café are the highlights. Carry on around the peninsula to Porthor, where you will find the 'Whistling Sands' beach, one of the best-kept secrets in Wales, derived from the whistle emitted when the sand is walked on in warm weather.
Though most dogs will never tire of walkies, when tired paws need a rest, the sleepy villages all over the peninsula are a welcoming retreat. Stop awhile in one of the dog-friendly pubs, cafes and tea rooms, and when the day is done, retire to one of our dog-friendly cottages for a well-deserved night’s rest.
