Your dog will love a cottage holiday in Saundersfoot
Set right on the glorious Pembrokeshire coast and just half an hour’s drive from historic Carmarthen, Saundersfoot is the perfect place for a seaside break. Our selection of dog-friendly cottages in Saundersfoot allows your favourite furball to join in the fun and put you within easy reach of some of the area’s most popular attractions.
The star of any seaside holiday is the beach and Saundersfoot delivers in (buckets and) spades! While there are restrictions for dogs in the summer, there are none in the winter, so you can enjoy a bracing walk together along the sands before heading back to the warmth of one of our dog-friendly cottages in Saundersfoot.
Despite being a small town, Saundersfoot has plenty to offer in the way of dog-friendly dining! For a light lunch, head to Little and Large Bites on Cambrian Terrace. A family-centric diner, there’s a play area for little ones and well-behaved pooches are more than welcome. For an evening meal or a quiet drink, The Old Chemist Inn offers sea views, superb food, and a good selection of beers and wines. The beer garden is perfect on balmy, summer nights and in the winter your dog can snuggle at your feet in the bar. If it’s a special night out, the Mulberry Restaurant on Brooklands Close serves sumptuous meals and is happy to accommodate our four-legged friends.
Dog-friendly things to do
With plenty of countryside to sniff about in, beautiful beaches, and historic ruins, there’s no reason for you or your dog to get bored on a holiday to Saundersfoot! With so much to see and do, knowing where to kick off can be daunting, so we’ve put together a few of our favourite dog-friendly haunts:
Whether you’re a history buff or not, Pembroke Castle is well worth a visit. Most famous for being the site where King Henry VIII was born, it’s a maze of passages, looming towers, and opulent rooms. If your dog’s on a lead, he’ll be allowed everywhere, except for the café and the shop.
Hop in your car and drive the half hour along the coast to Stackpole Park. For dogs, the woods are an endless trail of scents, sights and sounds; sure to get even the droopiest tail wagging! There’s little need to worry about leads here, as the park is so vast. Muddy mutts can wash themselves off in Lily Pond, assuming the resident ducks will let them!
Just 15 minutes’ drive from the centre of Saundersfoot, you’ll find Carew Castle. A Norman Castle standing on a limestone bluff, the castle has the only restored tidal mill in Wales. While there’s plenty to see for human visitors, the ruins, the lake, and the rolling grounds are a wonderland for dogs!
