Your dog will love a cottage holiday in Doncaster
Set right in the heart of Yorkshire and only an hour’s drive from the beaches and coastal walks offered by the Spurn Heritage Coast, Doncaster is a ‘paw-some’ holiday destination! Our dog-friendly cottages in Doncaster will ensure that your pooch feels just as at home as you do. Whether you want spacious accommodation for the whole family or something small and secluded for you and your loved one, our range of dog-friendly cottages in Doncaster means that no-one has to get left behind!
While dogs aren’t able to visit the Spurn Nature Reserve, many of the beaches close to Grimsby and along the mouth of the Humber are dog-friendly. Some have restrictions during the summer months, so it’s well worth checking their websites before you go. In the other direction, you’ve got all the wide open spaces offered by the Peak District National Park; perfect for a ramble!
Doncaster itself is something of a hot spot for dog-owners, particularly when it comes to eating out. The Kings Arms, on Low Street, is a perfect place for a pint at any time of year. Dogs are welcome in the bar or the rear garden. For something more countrified head to West Stockwith, where you’ll find The White Hart. Expect home-cooked food and a good selection of ales. There’s also a farm shop nearby, where you can pick up local produce.
Dog-friendly things to do
Yorkshire is a superb place for dogs and their owners to explore, with everything from the wild beauty of the Yorkshire Moors, to sandy beaches and cosmopolitan shopping centres. First-time visitors might find it a bit difficult to know where to start, so we’ve put together a list of some of our favourites:
One of Doncaster’s lesser-known walks, this is a great spot in which to introduce you and your faithful companion to the local beauty. You’ll find it close to the Keepmoat Stadium, near to the outside shopping centre. Follow the main path and you’ll come across the lake, complete with its own beach. If your dog isn’t too happy about swans, put the lead on, as they tend to congregate on or by the water.
Warning Tongue Lane Wood
A great, off-lead run-around, Warning Tongue Lane Wood is ideal for curious canines. There’s plenty of undergrowth for hooters to sniff around in, and the forest itself isn’t too dark. This is very popular with dog-walkers, so be prepared to encounter other passing pooches.
Widely hailed as one of the best walks in Doncaster, Melton Woods is a stunning backdrop for a stroll with the pup. There’s a small car park close by and you’ll find dog walkers by the dozen at this ever-popular destination.
