Dog Friendly Holiday Cottages

Dog friendly self catering cottages and holiday homesIf you are looking forward to spending your Easter or Summer holiday playing with your dog on the coast or enjoying the countryside on those long walks, then we have tried to make finding the right self catering accommodation a lot easier.

You have always been able to search Find Cottage Holidays looking for pet friendly self catering but we have now added some extra feature searches.

Now, if like us, your dog likes to ‘explore’ on their own if they see the opportunity, you will love our new search of dog friendly cottages WITH an ENCLOSED GARDEN. An enclosed garden, for most dogs, will mean you can relax in and around your self catering without having to keep your eyes on your dog.

Our new searches will also help you find dog friendly short break accommodation, dog friendly cottages with hot tubs and pet friendly self catering with open fires.  Start your pet friendly self catering search here.

You can also check out our sister site holidays with dogs for some more great pet friendly places to stay.
