Dog-friendly rentals

Annabelle's verdict
Leaving your dog behind when you go away is never ideal, but many cottage companies have a no-pets policy. Step forward Canine Cottages, which has over 1,700 properties in the UK - all of which are pooch-friendly. Choose from a converted barn in the Cotswolds, a romantic West Country cottage or Peak District bolthole - all with wonderful dog-friendly walks nearby.

Canine Cottages says

We offer more than 1,700 cottages in England, Scotland and Wales, all of which welcome dogs – some welcome as many as five dogs!

Each cottage has been personally inspected by our team and chosen for its dog-friendly features such as an enclosed garden or treats on arrival.

With long walks in glorious countryside or along spectacular beaches on your doorstep and lots of dog-friendly pubs, it’s no surprise that our most popular destinations are Cornwall, Devon, the Cotswolds and the Peak District.

Our range of family-friendly cottages across the UK accommodate between four and 24 people, whilst this collection of romantic cottages for two plus one or more dogs includes quaint and characterful properties such as coach houses, converted barns and even shepherd’s huts.
