Pet-friendly holidays and accommodation in Yorkshire
With the Dales, the Moors and the coast, Yorkshire is an outdoor paradise for humans and dogs alike.
There’s such a varied and magnificent range of habitats in Yorkshire that it would be wrong not to share the experience with your perfect pooch. The rolling hills, picturesque pastures and breath taking vistas are all waiting to be explored and enjoyed, perhaps best shared with a four-legged best friend.
Characterful villages and cities with striking architecture can be found all over the huge region, from West Yorkshire over to the east coast. The history of the county is found in all forms from castles and cobbles, making it a cultural haven for many, whilst the wide range of shops and food can be a draw for many, particularly to the larger towns. York is one of the UK's most beautiful cities, steeped in history with streets lined with wonderful architecture. For those longing for the great outdoors though, you’ll be spoilt for choice of where to go first.
The North York Moors and the Yorkshire Dales are renowned for their beauty and awe-inspiring scenery; heather-clad moorlands and limestone clints are infamous with the area, as are the trails through the glorious landscapes. There is boundless open space for dogs to explore – what better way for them to spend a holiday than sniffing around hundreds of square miles of unspoilt nature?
If it’s a beach break that gets your hound’s tail twitching, there’s plenty of seaside space too on the Yorkshire coast to enjoy with your dog. Filey has a handful of beach sections that are fur-friendly, with sands at Bridlington, Robin Hoods Bay and Staithes all welcoming your four-pawed pal. There are also the resorts of Scarborough and Whitby in North Yorkshire for a spot of traditional seaside fun in the sun, and while dogs may not be allowed on the beach, they can still enjoy a treat or two with you on the promenade.
