Dog-friendly cottages are ideal for people whose idea of leaving a dog behind in kennels when they go on holiday is like leaving a member of the family behind. Travelling a long way, or staying in a cramped hotel room isn't relaxing for your pet, or you - so what better than being able to take a short UK break in a beautiful holiday cottage with your dog and being safe in the knowledge that your pet will be welcome when you arrive. The health benefits for your pooch and for you are proven - so take your dog walking in the open air - along forest paths, up craggy hillsides, or to one of the UK's many pet friendly beaches where you both can run on the sand and take a dip in the sea (pets seem to be keep do this, even in the colder months!)
Self-catered weekend breaks mean you can take a break from home life but for your dog you're still in a holiday cottage where your dog is welcome - a home from home for the whole family. Here at Last Minute Cottages we have put together a list of dog-friendly cottages and pet-friendly holiday cottages all available at the last minute. All of the properties on this list accept dogs but it is always best to double check when booking (in case their policy has changed!) and it is always worth asking the property owners on our main list whether they accept dogs - even if they don't advertise the fact, some cottages will accept dogs that are well behaved and small!
