Remote rural retreats where dogs are welcome

Rural cottage holidays are best with a dog or two in tow. Dogs like to be in the countryside, to pad over soft ground, grass or even a sandy beach. Dog owners also like to take their pet for a country break around the 5th of November when fireworks displays near their homes may cause distress. Some of the best places to get far away from noise, crowds and hustle and bustle are our national parks. Certain national parks have fewer inhabitants than others; Dartmoor, Exmoor, the New Forest and the Norfolk Broads are more highly populated than the Yorkshire Dales or Yorkshire Moors. There is the journey distance to any holiday accommodation to consider. If your dog does not travel very well in a car then it may be less stressful for the animal to book a holiday cottage nearer home. Wales and Scotland have many remote areas, which are more accessible to dog owners in the Midlands and the north of the UK.

away from it all remote cottage breaks with dogsSmall towns and villages on the coast can be fairly quiet out of season and dogs are usually permitted on the beaches in the winter. A walk along a sandy beach can be invigorating and very enjoyable on a good clear winter's day when the sky is blue. Rent a cottage on the outskirts of a town or village or in a country location close to the coast and you could find that you have a most pleasant and satisfying out of season break.

Another bonus of booking a self-catering cottage in low season is that the rental costs are at their lowest. Check that heating bills are included in the rental rate and that the cottage has full central heating and you can have some great days out and cosy nights in during your holiday. A certain number of holiday cottages have underfloor heating which is fantastic if you're a dog and not so bad for their barefooted owners either.

Most of us do not have to travel that far to find an attractive rural region in that our towns and cities are often surrounded by green belt. Do browse or selection of dogs welcome cottages shown below and maybe there will be that special cottage in an unspoiled and unpolluted rural destination that appeals to you.
