Dog-friendly escapes

Tear across miles of sandy beach in Cornwall, pad through heather cloaked moorland in Devon and curl up fireside in an old Cotswolds inn; a holiday with the hound is sure to be one fine adventure.

It's no fun waving goodbye to the dog when you leave for your luxury break. Weekends together are better when planned for the whole family, including those with four legs. We've found dog-friendly cottages with tasty artisan treats on arrival, cosy dog beds settled right by the fire and great gardens to set tails wagging. Adventures up soaring mountains or along golden stretches of coast are so much better with your four-legged friends on the ride.

At Unique Homestays we pride ourselves in sourcing beautiful private homes kitted out with every detail imaginable. If you're setting off to explore Great Britain's wild and scenic landscapes with a faithful companion in tow, you'll have several extra details to take into account when it comes to accommodation; this curated collection includes, paws-down, the most heavenly dog-friendly rentals around.
