Dog Friendly Holidays in Dorset |

Choose from a variety of accommodation to suit your stay

Dorset covers many miles of countryside and coastline which is ideal for dog walking and gentle exercise. We know that pets like to bring their owners on holiday with them so we have a wonderful collection of cottages, hotels, holiday parks, B&Bs, and campsites that all happily accept four legged guests too!

Exploring the area is all part and parcel of a holiday but with a dog you can take advantage of discovering the county on foot. Try the North Dorset Trailway for maintained pathways that pass through lovely villages or instead do some cross country walking. You’ll take in the sights of a former railway line that slowly meanders through the North Dorset countryside passing the River Stour that dogs will love a quick paddle in as they pass.

Beach walks are very popular with some dogs as they love to splash and run for miles but do check out which beaches allow dogs as some can have restrictions or bans in place. There are some museums and historic castles and houses that do allow pets so they can uncover the heritage as much as you can. Do call in advance if you are unsure as to whether they can join you.

You don’t want your dog to be left out anytime during your holiday so be sure to visit a dog friendly pub or restaurant while on holiday in Dorset. Owners will be willing to accommodate your four legged friend and they might even get a treat or two as you tuck into your meal or sip away at your drink.

We all love pampering every now and then, particularly while enjoying a break so why not treat your dog to some pampering while on holiday in Dorset. Common and unique services are available in Dorset with dog grooming through to little doggie hydrotherapy, all of them bound to provide an enjoyable experience for your four legged friend.

There are lots of outdoor events and shows where your best friend is more than welcome but if you feel like you just want to curl up with them and enjoy a peaceful day you can do so in our pet friendly accommodation.

Dogs aren’t an afterthought when it comes to their sleeping arrangements either with specially designed hotel rooms being found across the county. Your pooch may enjoy the freedom of staying at one of our holiday cottages where they can roam the cottage and find their favourite spot. Many of these have enclosed gardens so you will be worry free while they are out and about. A B&B can provide both you and your four legged friend a warm base, while holiday parks that welcome dogs provide large expanses of land for them to explore at both countryside and seaside destinations.
