Tips for family self catering holidays with your pets

You’re keen to book a holiday and you take your furry friend along with you?  Well, here are some great tips to ensure that both you and your companion make the most of your stay in our pet friendly holiday cottages.  To ensure we were giving you the best advice, we assembled some useful comments from previous visitors and this is what they said – straight from the horse’s mouth so to speak.

Dogs need to feel at home

Dogs love being part of the family

‘No matter what type of pet, furry, fluffy or scaly, we like to feel at home’. Don’t forget to take all your dog’s favourite items with you, the dog bed is the most important, and don’t forget the first day’s dog food, such a pain to have to go shopping just after you arrive.

We have lots of pet friendly country cottages

‘My holiday was great! I found some great smelling stuff to roll around in after a cool dip in a green pond. However, for some reason, the owners didn’t seem to like me using their towels to have a good rub down in after my swimming session, so next time I’m going to have to bring my own’. Pack a couple of dog towels too.

 

 

 

 

 

Love to be having fun outside

‘Whenever we go on holiday, one of my favourite things to do after a long countryside walk when I’m tired out is to go to one of the local pubs.  Here I can enjoy a refreshing bowl of water and whatever morsels get slipped to me under the table’. Check with the local pub, they are usually dog friendly but good to know.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Don’t forget to take your dog for a walk when you arrive at your holiday cottage, it means they will relax and settle down much more quickly.  Good idea to keep them on a lead the first time, as there could be sheep in neighbouring fields.

We have pet friendly cottages dotted all over the UK, with the most amazing walks. From the Ashdown Forest to the South Downs National Park; from the Devon coast to the the Suffolk marshland, we have lots of lovely places.  Castles and Country Houses to visit, beautiful gardens which all welcome dogs on leads, so come on, what are you waiting for!
