When it comes to summer holiday, many stay at home for fear of finding the right dog sitter or kennel for their faithful friend. However, have you ever thought of taking your dog away with you? There are many hotels and other types of accommodation that now allow dogs to stay.
Forest Holidays offer dog-friendly log cabins at their sites which are located in nine locations across the UK. They are all set in Forestry Commission woodland and even offer ‘dogs go free’ promotions. Rooms are all deep cleaned before your arrival so you can guarantee that your room will be fresh and welcoming. Their lodges sleep from two to ten people so there is room for all the family. You can pre-order a ‘Doggy Deli Delight’ pack which includes a week’s worth of treats for your canine friends. With miles of woodland to explore, your pet will certainly enjoy their time there.
Haven offers another type of break, with sites located near the coast for those beach-loving dogs. They have caravans, chalets and apartments which are pet-friendly, with a small charge. Two dogs are allowed with each accommodation booked, so those with more than one dog needn’t worry. With 35-holiday parks dotted along the coast, you will be spoiled for choice! The endless coastlines with fresh sea air is sure to keep your furry friend busy.
If cabins and caravans aren’t the right type of holiday for you, the Bestwestern hotel chain has 110 pet-friendly hotels across the UK. Some of their hotels have ‘canine corridors’ and have rooms located near exits so that you can get your pet out as quickly as possible. With 700 acres of hotel grounds, Bestwestern Bestwood lodge has enough land for you and your dog to explore. This former Victorian hunting lodge located in Nottingham has traditional décor with some rooms even boasting a four-poster bed. They have a range of hotels, many of which are located in cities and towns; this gives you the option of venturing to new places whilst keeping your canine close by.
If your dog has all the relevant paperwork and you fancy travelling further afield, Eurocamp has a lot of options available for a family holiday with your pet. From tents to holiday homes, this company offers something for all budgets. Their website has a lot of useful information about how to make your holiday abroad with your dog a successful one. Italy, Germany, France and Holland are some of the countries where Eurocamp has accommodation which allows dogs. The many activities such as fishing, canoeing and cycling will keep those active family members busy, whereas the spas will provide some relaxation; these activities available at pet-friendly sites allow you to have a holiday tailored to your needs with the knowledge that your dog doesn’t have to be left behind at home.
So why not think about having a family holiday with ALL the family this year, even your furry friend!
