Time away shouldn’t mean time away from your pets. Every member of the family deserves a getaway and that includes your four-legged friend. After all, does anyone enjoy running along sandy beaches or splashing through woodland streams quite as much as our beloved dogs? Of course not! So why on earth would we leave them behind?


We’re experts at selecting pet friendly accommodation that every pooch will go barking mad for. Best of all, you can be on the road to your last-minute holiday in no time. We know that spending weeks planning the perfect holiday isn’t always on the cards, so we refuse to let booking at short notice stand in the way of you finding your dream break.





Pet-friendly cottages for last minute breaks


A lot of the time booking last-minute breaks, especially ones where your dog is welcome, means sacrificing on quality. Well, here at Dog Friendly Cottages, nothing could be further from the truth. However soon you want to leave and however many dogs you’re taking, we’ll make sure you find pet-friendly accommodation that’s up to your standards. Whether you fancy a holiday cottage with a hot tub, a swimming pool or an open plan living area, we’ve got you covered.


Maybe you fancy a short break on a vintage farmstead, with all original features so your pooch can play sheepdog for the day? Or perhaps you’re craving a quiet cosy cottage with a roaring log fire, nestled in the Scottish Highlands? Whatever your holiday dream may be, let us know, and one of our 36,000 properties are guaranteed to make it happen.


Explore the coast and countryside together


To our four-legged friends, the UK is one huge playground. Add the rolling hills of the Peak District, the lush woodland of the New Forest and the sandy shorelines of the South West, and it’s easy to see that the UK is everyone’s first pick for a dog-friendly holiday. 



If you’re ready to relax on the beach beneath the summer sunshine, then a last-minute dog friendly cottage in Cornwall is the place to be. Book a weekend break near one of the county’s many dog-friendly beaches and let your pooch off the leash for an afternoon of sun, sand and shores. Or perhaps it's a city break? Explore our dog friendly hotels to find the perfect one for you. 


For stunning views and endless walking routes, there’s no better place than the Lake District National Park. If you fancy being within easy reach of award-winning restaurants that will welcome your pooch, we suggest a city break in Hertfordshire. Or, if you prefer heading out after dark, why not make for the Brecon Beacons for one of the world’s clearest night skies? With so many special offers, you’ll be spoil for choice.
