Pet-friendly holidays and accommodation in West Yorkshire
Open countryside, traditional villages and vibrant cities; our dog-friendly accommodation in West Yorkshire lies on the doorstep of a variety of landscapes that both you and your four-legged family will love exploring. So, grab your lead, pack up your dog treats and enjoy an adventure in the largest of the three Ridings of Yorkshire. Cultured canines should head to the cosmopolitan cities of Bradford or Leeds, the latter of which is home to the much-loved 700-acre Roundhay Park where dogs can roam free.
Beyond the buzz of the cities lie the area’s rolling moorlands with the Yorkshire Dales National Park to the north, including Nidderdale and Wharfedale, both magnets for dog-walkers all year round. To the north-west of the region are the dramatic Pennines, where hounds who are fit and up for the challenge can scamper to the summit of the famous Pen-y-Ghent. Or for a more leisurely stroll, sniff out the best beauty spots in Brontë Country, home to the literary mecca of Haworth where the Brontë sisters once lived and wrote their novels.
Also make time to schedule in a trip to the pretty town of Holmfirth where the TV show Last of the Summer Wine was filmed, along with the historic Harewood House near Leeds where dogs are welcome on leads, and the Yorkshire Sculpture Park just outside of Wakefield where sophisticated pups can walk among statues and beautiful works of art. For more ideas on what to do that are sure to set tails wagging, read our Canine guide to Yorkshire.
Our dog-friendly West Yorkshire cottages are perfect for an evening of relaxation after an exciting day of sightseeing. Happy hounds can burn off any left-over energy in an enclosed garden before curling up in front of the fire.
