Why North West England?
The North West of England is a massively broad and diverse holiday destination and can offer bountiful different holiday experiences all depending on where you are wanting to go. Much of the northwest is rural because of three stunning national park: the Lake District, the Yorkshire Dales and the Peak District.

If you are wanting to experience a new city, Liverpool in Merseyside is a great option, where you are able to experience the 2008 Capital of Culture and visit attractions such as The Beatles Museum or China Town.

Why a self-catering holiday in the northwest of England is superior to a hotel or B&B stay
Many holiday makers love the freedom of self-catering when they go away on holiday. It makes your holiday cottage feel like a home from home and lets you do what you want on your holiday without having to fit your plans around another schedule, such as site curfews or meal times at a bed and breakfast. Because of this, opting to stay in self-catered accommodation, can help to make your holiday very relaxing, doing what you want, when you want it.
In addition to this, staying in self-catering accommodation provides you with plenty of space that can be hard to get in other types of accommodation, even those that let you take dogs, such as caravan parks. This is obviously helpful for family holidays, meaning that everyone is able to go away with you, no matter how big or small the family, without feeling like you are living on top of each other while you are away – something you will definitely appreciate if you are taking stroppy teenagers away with you! The space that comes with a self-catering cottage is not just helpful for large families though, it is also helpful if you are taking a dog away with you, or if you have multiple dogs. The space really is invaluable, giving everyone their own room and keeping tension and arguments to a minimum.
Dog-friendly breaks in northwest England
Self-catering cottages which allow dogs also have the appeal of being like your own home, ensuring that they are dog friendly and have those small touches that you have at home, such as stair gates, utility room for lead storage or easy clean floors and furniture. These touches do make a big difference to your holiday – you do not want to have to think about cleaning your dog’s fur or filthy paw prints out of a deep cream shaggy carpet – that just is not relaxing at all! Knowing that your cottage will have these features helps to make it feel like home, allows you to really chill out and just gives you an easy life. It is not just the dog friendly features of a self-catering holiday cottage that makes it a brilliant choice for your holiday in the North West of England though, there are also features that make life easier for humans too, for example the fact that the cottages have fully fitted kitchens and Wi-Fi. These are things you may struggle to find in other pet friendly accommodation, but they are as standard in a cottage, meaning that you can cook for yourself and easily make food for your family if you do not feel like you want to go out for food and so on. It may sound dramatic, it is only a kitchen after all, but it is small touches like these that set self-catering holiday cottages apart from other options.
Staying in a self-catering holiday cottage is possibly the best option if you are looking for somewhere dog friendly to stay in Cumbria, Lancashire, Cheshire, Merseyside or Yorkshire. No matter what area you choose to stay in, there are numerous dogs allowed holiday cottages all perfect for you and your family to get away from everything and truly relax.
