Well known for its rugged coastline and traditional English countryside, the West Country offers a diverse array of breathtaking landscapes. Whether it’s pristine beaches, picture-perfect villages or dramatic river valleys, between them, Devon, Cornwall, Dorset and Somerset offer some of the UK’s most stunning scenery.
A varied landscape where mountains tower above lush river valleys and glassy lakes, interrupted only by charming towns, villages and many historic castles. The stunning coastline offers 750 miles of flawless beaches and hidden coves, and Cardiff offers a vibrant atmosphere and plenty of cultural discoveries.
Scotland is a land of real diversity. Revel in the vibrancy of Edinburgh and Glasgow or enjoy solidarity on the peaceful islands of Skye or Lewis. Walk beside gentle lochs or rushing rivers, climb towering mountains and discover hidden beaches and ancient battle grounds. Not only that but Scotland is swathed in historic castles, stately homes and attractions to suit just about anyone.
From the huge open skies and vast beaches in Norfolk to the traditional seaside charm in Essex, the East of England is a varied holiday destination. Taking in Suffolk, Lincolnshire, Hertfordshire, Cambridgeshire and Bedfordshire, you can also enjoy stunning countryside, cultural cities, historic castles and several Areas of Outstanding Natural Beauty.
Encompassing the likes of The Cotswolds, Oxfordshire, Shropshire, Staffordshire and Warwickshire, a holiday in the Heart of England guarantees a traditional English break. Get lost in the stunning countryside, explore cultural cities, market towns and picture-perfect villages. Not only that but you can discover stately homes, peaceful gardens and beautiful castles.
Home to some of the UK’s most loved Victorian seaside towns, the South Coast promises perfect family memories full of fish and chips and ice cream! Head slightly inland and you can enjoy the likes of the New Forest in Hampshire, the South Downs in Sussex and cultural cities like Canterbury in Kent.
There are many contrasting landscapes in the North of England, from the unspoilt mountains in the Lake District to the vast rolling countryside of Yorkshire. If you’re more interested in the coast then Northumberland’s stunning beaches and Yorkshire’s popular fishing villages will not disappoint.
With so many beautiful places in the UK designated as an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this is a testament to just how special much of the country’s landscapes are. Choose from the peaks of Snowdonia, the honey-coloured villages of the Cotswolds, the unspoilt wilderness of the Cairngorms.

Charmouth is perhaps most famous for the abundance of fossils which have been found here, and on any given day, a walk along Charmouth Beach (which has year-round dog-friendly sections) could result in a Jurassic find to take home. Find out more about the Jurassic Coast at the World Heritage Centre on the seafront and join a guided walk if you want to be sure of making a fossil discovery.
The village of Charmouth is encompassed by the Golden Cap Estate, which is a wonderful, natural space to explore with your four-legged friend. Admire the glorious coastal views and take advantage of the 25 miles of footpaths which criss-cross the estate – Stonebarrow Hill is a good place to start.
When it comes to dog-friendly places to eat, Charmouth serves up a wonderful selection of pubs, restaurants and cafés where your dog is more than welcome to join you. The village is pretty and atmospheric, with characterful Regency houses and charming thatched cottages giving it an air of the past. It’s unsurprising that Jane Austen was a frequent visitor here.
With so much to enjoy with your four-legged friend, you’ll be wanting a comfortable base to rest during your Dorset stay. Our dog-friendly holiday cottages in Charmouth offer everything you’ll need for a memorable break. Choose from cottages in Charmouth with enclosed gardens and sea views, or opt for something a little bit special in the form of a hot tub or children’s play facilities.
Whether you’re looking for a romantic coastal retreat or a fabulous family home, you’ll find your perfect accommodation within our dog-friendly cottages in Charmouth or our wider range of pet-friendly cottages in Dorset.
