Not sure where to find the best pet-friendly holiday homes? have launched a Dog Friendly Holiday Finder, with locations and recommendations based on the breed of your four-legged friend. Find walks, pubs, beach recommendations and more.

1 Radar, Dungeness, Kent

Off the beaten track but easy to find, this stunning seaside escape is a former research base for triangulated radar. Now it offers amazing views of sea, sand and sky.

If you’re looking for a perfect – and perfectly peaceful – place to spoil your pet then there really is no better bet. Sleeping two guests, there’s comfort to match its unconventional charms, with wood-burning stove, sauna and more.

2 The Hedgerow near Thame, Oxfordshire

For rural romance look no further; this property is the ideal escape for two and – with amazing walks and interior comfort – even your four-legged friend will fall in love.

Gaze upon the Ridgeway National Trail in the heart of the Chilterns from your accommodation then lace up the walking boots and head out into the great outdoors. Return and relax in your holiday home, where you can enjoy unrivaled comfort, tranquility and even use of a vintage caravan in the garden.

3 South Cliff, Bridlington, Yorkshire

A luxurious beachfront apartment on the beautiful Yorkshire coast, this property sleeps four guests and one pet and is bound to be equally popular with all. Bridlington’s south bay is just a few steps away, and you can walk along the seafront or follow the cliff top walk to Sewerby Hall – a beautiful Georgian mansion open to the public.

But there are few finer holiday homes than your own accommodation. South Cliff offers open-fires, king size beds and complete comfort throughout.

4 The Prince Regent, Bodiam, Sussex

Refined relaxation awaits for two people and their pets at this stunningly restored showman’s carriage. Built in 1894, it offers period character with modern relaxation. There’s plenty to enjoy in the surrounding area, with views over Bodiam Castle to be enjoyed from your accommodation.

The Sunday People described this property as being perfect for fans of The Greatest Showman. Why not watch the DVD while you sit in front of an open fire with your favorite people?

5 Sunnyside House near Aviemore, Inverness-shire

Action and adventure are the orders of the day at this delightful dog friendly retreat in Scotland. Sleeping eight and two pets, guests can enjoy a games room with wood burner, drinks fridge, pool table, table tennis and dart board. Outside there’s a patio, garden furniture, BBQ, fire pit and private hot tub.

There’s no better place to return to after a hard day’s adventuring, and with skiing and snowboarding, mountain and quad biking, climbing and hill walking and a variety of water sports on nearby Loch Insh, Loch Morlich and the River Spey all available, there’s plenty to keep you entertained.

6 Remera, St Ives, Cornwall

A simply stunning seaside escape, this lovely large property in St Ives offers incredible views of the surrounding area, including the scenic bay to Godrevy Lighthouse. The interior is light, airy and spacious with plenty of comfort for eight guests and one four-legged friend.

St Ives itself needs little introduction; here you will find amazing beaches and more hours of sunshine and daylight than many other UK destinations. What’s more, pets go absolutely free.
