Let your dog run free in the south and west – for free, with our four-legged cashback offer. From 6th October, any dog-friendly bookings taken for October or November 2017 will have the cost of the dog(s) refunded to their payment card.
The south and west is your pet’s dream destination. Choose a cottage next to the sea giving you miles of stunning coast paths to explore with the dramatic backdrop changing with every footstep. This part of the world boasts a number of beaches available for dogs all year round with the majority open to pets from 1st October until Easter Day.
If the coast is not for you a holiday on Dartmoor, Exmoor or Bodmin moor will offer hundreds of walks over rolling moorland with stunning views, or just find a local path and explore to your heart’s content.
There is nothing quite like a dog friendly holiday in Cornwall, with over 200 beaches, many of which allow dogs all year round, and over 300 miles of coastline to explore – and that’s all before we mention the moorland and inland rural walks. But it’s not all about walkies, there are plenty of dog friendly pubs and cafes in Cornwall to rest and refuel before bounding onto the next activity.
It is Britain’s fourth largest county, much of it utterly rural so your dog can run free for miles. You are spoilt for choice with cottages that take dogs, with countryside hideaways on the moors, to seaside self catering – whether you want to indulge in green fields or walk along the beach, Devon offers every option. With two coasts and a vast green landscape in between, you could take your dog on a tour of every type of topology.
As well as fields of green and chocolate box cottages, Somerset boasts most of Exmoor in its boundary, perfect for dog friendly holidays. Find the perfect self catering holiday where you don’t have to leave the dog behind, perhaps in one of Somerset’s large towns such as Taunton, Bridgwater and Yeovil, as well as picture postcard destinations like Glastonbury, Shepton Mallet and Castle Cary, all with stunning countryside walks to tire out your furry friend.
Dorset has a stunning and long stretch of coastline, perfect for leisurely dog walks with unrivalled views. The Jurassic Coast is a Mecca for walkers with its unusual rock formations, beautiful cliffscapes and fossil hunting. Bring your dog along for the walk of a lifetime and maybe he will sniff out a few rare fossils too.
The network of pathways through the New Forest make walkies so much more interested, with so many trees to sniff your doggy won’t know where to look. Make friends with free range cattle and ponies and wander in and out of small Hampshire villages as you meander your way down to our dog friendly cottages by the sea. Let your four-legged friend run free across the beaches of the south coast before returning home to your holiday home salty, sandy and happy.
A majority of the beaches remain open to dogs all year round so no matter the time of year, you’ll always be able to bring the dog on your break. You’ve also got plenty of forest and hillside walks to enjoy further inland too. But it’s not all about walkies, as dogs have a huge presence on the isle, many pubs, restaurants and cafes welcome dogs in to rest while you enjoy a drink and a bite to eat.
Treat your dog to a holiday this October or November and we’ll treat you to cashback by refunding the fee.
Classic Cottages have been finding exceptional homes that make great holidays since way back in 1977. We’re pretty good at it, with over 1,000 self catering cottages across the south and west, from the tip of Cornwall, through the counties up to the Isle of Wight.
