Looking for a pedigree stay? Pack the pooch, we're off on our hols with Canine Cottages where no breed is banned, no hound too huge, and you can bring the whole goddam pack.
Remember when booking a staycay meant packing the pooch off to the kennels? Now, there’s no need for guilty goodbyes as it couldn’t be easier to find a holiday rental where paws on the floor are de rigeur. Canine Cottages have set tails a-wagging with over three thousand properties on their books, all over the UK, picked specially with dog-friendly enclosed gardens, and loads of dog-friendly extras.
While some holiday rentals put restrictions on dog breeds, Canine Cottages allow all shapes and sizes. Plus, you can bring more than one, with up to 5 dogs allowed. (I hear they managed to find a suitable property for one brave holidayer who wanted to bring 12, yes a dozen doggies, along for the trip.) And pack the lead, as there are guaranteed good walkies on your doorstep, along with advice on local dog-friendly eateries and day trips.
If you’re planning a trip round our lovely county, check out their Canine Guide to Devon – it’s full of tips on Fido-friendly beach, moor and city walks, attractions where your pooch is treated like one of the family, and their curated pick of 12 Paw-Friendly Holiday Cottages in Devon. I also love Canine Critics, doggie reviewers who (with the help of their owners, of course) give the low-down on their fave places. Meet the south-west’s hottest critic, Honey. She’s got 24k followers on instagram so she’s clearly got some canine cred.
