Pet-friendly holidays and accommodation in Mudeford, Dorset
Long associated with fishing and smuggling, Mudeford is a charming harbourside town perched at the entrance to Christchurch Harbour in Dorset. It’s an idyllic destination for pups and their owners to kick back and enjoy a laid-back pace of life, watching fishing boats come and go, lounging on the beach together and indulging in fish and chip suppers on the picturesque Quay.
The golden stretches of sand lined by colourful beach huts at Avon and Friars Cliff are easily accessed from the Quay via Gundimore Promenade and both have seasonal restrictions for dogs, or you can hop aboard a passenger ferry to Mudeford Sandbank, an isolated spit that forms part of Hengistbury Head which is dog-friendly all year round. It’s also a fascinating place for its wide variety of wildlife habitats and is a great spot for birdwatching.
Our self-catering dog-friendly accommodation in Mudeford is perfectly placed to offer a true taste of the English seaside. Plus, the New Forest National Park is only 6 miles away, so you can combine the coast with the countryside and let Fido sniff out the best scenic trails, keeping your eyes peeled for the iconic New Forest ponies. For guaranteed tail-wagging, treat your pack to a stay in one of our dog-friendly cottages in Mudeford.
