Dog Friendly Cottages In Sunderland

Your dog will love a cottage holiday in Sunderland

Whether you want a beach break, a city escape or to explore the best of the countryside in the North East, our dog-friendly cottages in Sunderland will allow you to make your holiday exactly what you want it to be. From spacious accommodation for all the family to secluded, romantic retreats for two, why go through all the stress and expense of putting your furry friend in a kennel when you can take him with you?

Sitting slap-bang on the mouth of the River Wear, Sunderland has got plenty to offer holidaying hounds. Little more than 10 minutes’ drive from the city centre you’ll find Ryhope Beach, where your bone-burying buddy can run free, have a splash in the sea, and say hello to any other passing pooches. Head north and cross the River Tyne and you’ll find Whitley Bay. While you’re there, walk the causeway across to St Mary’s Lighthouse. Dogs are permitted on the island. Alternatively, browse the seaside shops or grab a bite in one of the cafés lining the seafront.

When it comes to eating out, dog-owners are well catered for in Sunderland. If you can tear yourself from our dog-friendly cottages, you’ll find some superb pubs and restaurants that welcome well-behaved dogs. Love Lily is a firm favourite, offering great food and drinks, and a jar of treats behind the bar for hungry hounds. Gin and Bear It on High Street West is an upmarket watering-hole for stylish dogs and their owners.

Dog-friendly things to do

With so much to see and do in the area, it can be easy to miss out on the best bits. So we’ve put together a few of our favourite dog-friendly attractions to help you get the most from your downtime.

Herrington Country Park

If you’re taking a break with the whole family, Herrington Country Park is a fantastic place to visit at any time of year. You’ll find a huge pond, a boating lake, and a sculpture trail, all providing plenty of sniff-worthy stop-offs for curious canines.

Hylton Castle

This historic castle was built in the 14th Century and is a must or anyone with an interest in the region’s history. Surrounded by woodlands that are hundreds of years old, it’s a firm favourite with dog owners who want to give their dogs a run in some of the area’s most unspoilt scenery.

Sunderland Marina

To take in the sea air and see some beautiful boats, Sunderland Marina ticks all the right boxes. While your four-pawed pal will need to stay on a lead, the marina is full of new sights, sounds and scents to enjoy.
