With international travel still akin to playing a game of quarantine whack-a-mole, we’re looking to fill our summer weekends with endless UK getaways. If you, like many others during lockdown, have welcomed a new four-legged friend to your family, then we’ve rounded up some of the best dog-friendly staycations in the UK so you can plan all your summer holidays, #TeamCocopup style.
April Cottage is perfect for those looking for the ideal #cottagecore break. The cosy cottage is part of the Winterton Cottages portfolio and is just a five-minute walk away from the dog-friendly Winterton Beach. The April cottage sleeps four and is full of character, stay tuned for our full review soon!
Looking for a staycation idea that’s a bit different? Then book one of the Shepherd’s Huts at the Merry Harrier’s in Surrey. Located in deep, rural England, the Merry Harriers is a de Savary property that combines rustic charm with contemporary luxury. It also offers llama treks, which are brilliant fun to do with your pooch.
Kernock Cottages is a group of five dog-friendly cottages in Cornwall that each come with a private hot tub and gazebo. We love the contemporary cottage aesthetic and also the fact that the property offers charming welcome doggy hampers too!
The Grove is a five-star luxury property set in 300 acres of Hertfordshire countryside. This ultimate luxury retreat (which was once the home of the Earls of Clarendon) offers an award-winning spa, championship golf course and a number of award-winning restaurants. Oh – and did we mention it was dog-friendly too?
There’s plenty to love at Linthwaithe House, which is located in Lake Windermere and features endless dog-walking routes and plenty of breath-taking views to take in. Dogs and doting dog parents can explore the hotel’s 14-acre grounds or stay in one of the three-luxury dog-friendly rooms at the property.
