What picture does the best of British holidays with your dog conjure up for you?
A quick poll of our local dog walkers had a rural cottage near the sea in first place, closely followed in second place by a deserted beach and a country pub with camping space just a short walk away.
Well, it wasn’t a very scientific survey! But I’m sure that many dog owners agree that while you don’t want to plan your hols around the dog, it is a lot more relaxing to go somewhere where you know that Fido isn’t going to upset anyone with the odd enthusiastic Woof – or cause a diplomatic incident by drying off with a good shake n’ roll near a bunch of dog-shy toddlers.
To make holiday planning for you and your dog easier this year, we’ve just added thousands of dog-friendly cottages to Driving with Dogs so that you can see exactly where the dog-friendly beaches are, and whether there’s a brilliant dog walk just around the corner from your holiday cottage.
And better still, you can use the Driving with Dogs route planner to check out the great walks, picnic places and quaint little inns on your way to that perfect beach or forest. With all the new places on the site, your holiday really can start from the moment you get in the car!
