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.

Not only that but Scotland is swathed in historic castles, stately homes and attractions to suit just about anyone.

Whether you are looking for a family break or a romantic retreat with your loved one, if you have to leave your four-legged family member at home you can’t quite switch off to be able to fully enjoy your break. But you needn’t worry about leaving them at home as we have lots of of dog-friendly cottages in Yorkshire so you can bring every member of the family with you.
Yorkshire is the largest county in the UK and with so much open moorland to explore you have plenty of spaces to let your dog run free. The county has way too many walks to list all of them, but here we have listed a few of the most popular:
Scammonden Dam: With a choice of two routes you can choose which walk is most suitable for you. Take a walk from the top car park along the water’s edge, heading up through the woods and then back to the car park, which will take around 30 minutes or head all the way around the dam for a longer hour walk. The car park is free and is open from 9am until 6pm, so just make sure you’re back in plenty of time for closing!
Ogden Water Country Park: A scenic 1.5 mile walk around the reservoir will allow you all to stretch your legs while enjoying the scenery. There are certain areas around the reservoir where they do ask you to put the dogs on lead but mostly you can let them run free along the walk. Remember to take some change for the car park and pay a visit to the visitor centre for maps and information around the Country Park.
Wilton Park: With woodland walks, open fields and a large lake to cool off by, Wilton Park has everything you need. The park also has a number of activities onsite like crazy golf, tennis and football pitches meaning you can let the kids play while you give pooch some exercise.
On the Yorkshire coast you will find plenty of stunning beaches to walk along, but not all can claim to be dog-friendly all year around. Fraisthorpe Beach in Bridlington can do just that. What used to be a nudist paradise is now a dog-walkers haven. Open to dogs all year around and with miles of water and sand this is a wonderful place to explore.
Another popular dog-friendly beach is Marske Sands Beach, close to Marske-By-The-Sea and with surfing and fishing opportunities you have plenty to keep you busy around and on the beach. The beach is primarily sand and with a very high water quality rating you know your dog will be safe wandering off to explore.
Another dog-friendly beach close to Scarborough is Cayton Bay. The town centre is close by and with a café, toilet and shops on the beach you know you won’t get caught short while walking.
