  • Fantastic post. For many people dogs are not pets but an important part of the family, having the possibility to travel with them makes a vacation much more memorable. Thanks for sharing.

  • There’s something about the Cotswolds that just shouts out walking holidays with dogs, isn’t there? We don’t have dogs but I have plenty of friends who do so I’ll send this post to them for their future staycation reference!

  • Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful post 😉 I love that these places accept your furry family members as well as we do take our little guy with us everywhere. I am loving all of the adorable dog pics too 😉

  • I don’t have a dog just yet, but these will come in handy when we finally settle on one! Being 3 of us making a decision is proving very difficult 🙂

  • Thanks so much for sharing this as I was lucky enough to add a new member to our home earlier this year ( a rescue dog) so finding dog-friendly accommodation is a really new thing for me. I’ve taken her on one short break in West Wales 3 weeks ago and it was fantastic and now I want to do more so book marking this post
