Pet-friendly Christmas cottages for festive breaks in the UK and Ireland
Christmas is a special time of year and if you are going away on a self catering break it's natural that as a part of the family, you will want to take your dog away too. For many people, leaving their dog at home over the festive period is simply not possible or worth contemplating. Christmas is all about togetherness with the ones you love and if one of the ones you love is a prize pooch then you need your dog with you.
Luckily if you are looking to take a country cottage holiday, there are plenty establishments that welcome pets too.
