If there’s anyone who enjoys exploring the seaside more than you do, it’s likely your beloved pup. Whether it’s splashing about in the water or hopelessly chasing the seabirds, there’s so much to keep them entertained by the coast. In the meantime, you get to stroll along and enjoy all the incredible sea views.
So, for your next seaside holiday why not bring your four-legged friend along for the adventure? At Dog Friendly Cottages, we’re here to help you plan the ideal beach holiday.
