Your dog will love a cottage holiday in Portsmouth
With miles of pretty seafront and plenty of parks, dog-friendly holiday cottages in Portsmouth are the perfect base for you and your pooch to enjoy some time away. Whether you want to enjoy the sights from Gunwharf Quay, head to the beach at Southsea, or go further afield, this part of Hampshire has lots to offer. Our smaller four-legged friends can enjoy a boat trip around the harbour, and there are lots of great spots for dogs of all sizes to have a good long walk such as Queen Elizabeth Country Park.
Dog-friendly things to do
Marvel at miniatures
The model village at Southsea is delightful, with 40 mini buildings, all meticulously crafted to be 1/12 th scale replicas of the real things. Dogs are welcome, and you’re close to Southsea Common too, so you and your pup can have a taste of the great outdoors when you’ve finished looking around the village.
Wonderful Watercress Line
The golden age of steam comes to life on this charming steam railway. You can hop off at the pretty towns along the route to enjoy a bite to eat, take one of the historical walks or just sit back and enjoy the ride. Dogs travel for free, and you’ll find plenty of cafés and pubs where they’re welcome with a well-behaved owner!
