Dog Friendly Cottages In Dorset To Rent

Your dog will love a cottage holiday in Dorset

Dorset is home to the amazing Jurassic coast and although your dog might not appreciate fossil hunting they will surely love the fresh sea air and winding coastal paths. Naturally, Dorset’s coastal towns and villages are much-loved holiday destinations, especially during the summer months. However, if you and your pup prefer the countryside, you’re in luck. Much of this county is designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. This means there are miles upon miles of gorgeous countryside to explore with your four-legged friend. You can appreciate the breathtaking views and your dog will love all the new smells and the quality time you’re spending together. Whether you choose to stay in a bustling town or one of the picture-perfect villages, we are sure you and your pup will love a cottage holiday in Dorset.

Dog-friendly things to do

Some of Dorset's coast is made up of towering cliffs and the rolling hills are probably best reserved for the more energetic of pups. From the beach at the famous Durdle Door to Chesil Cove, there are also plenty of beaches that welcome dogs all year round. So, if your pup enjoys frolicking in the waves, there is no shortage of places for you to visit together. Long strolls together are often the highlight of a dog-friendly holiday and if you’re looking for a relaxed walk Dorset’s countryside is brimming with options. With ample footpaths and lanes to choose from, there will be a route to suit your dog’s energy levels. Holidays are for relaxing after all!

If the sound of all this walking in the fresh air has you reaching for a cup of tea, Dorset is dotted with cafes and pubs that will welcome your four-legged friend. No one wants to leave their best friend behind while enjoying a bite to eat! From The Bankes Arms near Old Harry Rocks to The Kings Arms in Wareham, there is plenty of choice. Even better, plan your pub lunch in the middle of a scenic walk for the ultimate day out. You can enjoy Dorset’s delicious local produce while you both have a rest. If you would prefer to make the most of the local attractions, there are several dog-friendly places to choose from. Our favourites include Abbotsbury Subtropical Gardens, Corfe Castle and Athelhampton House and Gardens.
