Dogs are considered part of the family and we feel that they shouldn’t miss out on any family activity, especially a holiday! Bring your four legged friend along and enjoy a stay in one our dog friendly cottages. They’ll have a blast exploring the fantastic beaches, hills and attractions that you find across the UK, particularly Dorset. It’s often cheaper to bring them along as well and you won’t feel guilty about them missing out on all the fun.

If one of your concerns is your dog wandering off in an unfamiliar location then one our properties with an enclosed garden would be perfect for you. These come in all sizes with everything from a romantic cottage for couples looking to getaway for some quality time together, large cottages to holiday in a group or family friendly cottages to ensure that the children are entertained throughout the stay.

Dog-friendly beaches

Dogs love splashing around in the sea and running around on the soft sand or pebbles. There is no shortage of beaches to enjoy while on holiday in Dorset with one of the most popular areas being around Lulworth where you’ll find the world famous Durdle Door along with Lulworth Cove and Man ‘O’ War beaches, dogs are allowed throughout the year on these beaches. Dorset’s largest town Bournemouth has long stretches of golden sand that is perfect for enjoying your day at the beach. Be sure to check the restrictions that are in place during the summer months here, but there is still ample room for your pooch to enjoy. Similar restrictions apply in many of the other beaches across the county including the ones in; Poole, Bridport, Christchurch, Lyme Regis and Weymouth. For unrestricted access all year round, head to Abbotsbury beach where you’ll be treated to stunning views over to Weymouth and Portland.

Walking routes

You’re spoilt for choice on where to take your dog for a walk while in Dorset. As has been mentioned the beaches are a fantastic way to get some exercise for you and your dog while on holiday in Dorset and it’s hard to discuss great walking routes without mentioning the South West Coast Path. Starting in Poole harbour the route hugs the south Dorset coastline passing great coastal towns including Wareham, Swanage , Charmouth, Eype and West Bay and features some of the most dramatic and breath-taking views along the World Heritage Site known as the Jurassic Coast.

There is plenty more of the county to see other than the coastal locations. Head inland and enjoy walks through the rolling countryside that is found across Dorset. By The Way in Wimborne, found on the outskirts Bournemouth, is large open space that dogs love running around on, they can even take a dip in the lake. Much of the land in the north of the county is largely rural with routes in and around towns such as Shaftesbury and Blandford Forum and this area is perfect for taking your dog for a long countryside ramble, there will be plenty of wildlife to see on route as well.
