Weekend Breaks with Dogs

Brimming with beautiful walking routes, tranquil beaches, and picture-perfect lakes and rivers, the UK is a wonderful destination for travelling with dogs.

We all know that our pets quickly become part of the family and it’s difficult to part with them when we want to go away.

Luckily, though, the entire country is brimming with pet-friendly accommodation and dog-friendly pubs.

Of course, planning a holiday with your furry friends can sometimes be difficult. It involves planning ahead of time to make sure that your accommodation is well-equipped for both you and your doggos.

To help make this planning process a little easier, we have put together a list of our favourite weekend breaks with dogs, including information on where to stay and places to visit.
