Unless this is your first trip away as a family after having your little one, you might have noticed that holiday planning has become a completely different experience altogether. Romantic cabin retreats are now swapped out for baby-friendly boltholes with plenty of space for their playpen, crib, blankets and toys. You might also find that things get a little more stressful, but it doesn’t always have to be this way.


We feel that even the planning of your dog-friendly holiday should be an exciting experience. As a result, we’ve made it as easy as possible for you to find the ideal family-friendly holiday cottage. Looking to take the whole clan along? At Dog Friendly Cottages, we specialise in finding the very best pet-friendly properties across the UK. Save the stress of kennels, and bring the pup along for an adventure they and the little ones won't forget.



Your family holiday starts with the perfect cottage

With little ones to take care of, you’ll likely enjoy the space and freedom that a self-catering holiday cottage offers. It’s easier to come and go as you please, and you’ll have all your home essentials and comforts right there with you. Whether you’re planning on cosying up with your family around a roaring log burner or sitting out in your private garden to enjoy the sunshine, holiday cottages give you a sense of home.


Lots of our baby-friendly cottages are already equipped with all the essentials, including high chairs, safety gates and cosy cribs - so there’s no need to try and squeeze the whole nursery into the car before you set off! For those with little ones who have already begun crawling and exploring, we’ll help you choose a cottage complete with a spacious living area, so you can sit back and truly relax. 

Discover a new UK holiday destination

Looking to escape to the seaside? The picturesque counties of Cornwall and Devon are awaiting your arrival. Here, you’ll get to enjoy the very best of UK beaches, with long stretches of soft, golden sands to sink your feet into. The traditional seaside resorts of Brighton, Blackpool and Barmouth are also great for those who enjoy the bustle of a busy town by the sea.


If you’re a family of adventurers, then the Snowdonia or North York Moors national parks have plenty to offer. With a mix of vibrant landscapes and mossy woodlands, your little one will get to experience a fantastic introduction to the great outdoors.


Or if you're already feeling ready to hop the British Channel, why not try some of our dog-friendly accommodation that's also suitable for babies in France or Spain?
