Here at Dog Friendly Retreats, we’re always looking out for ways to make our website smarter to help customers find the perfect property for their holidays. Well now, after the latest update to our website, we have introduced a number of new search features that make it easier to track down the ideal holiday home for time away with a dog.
Introducing Our Cool New Holiday Seach Tools
Select the Maximum Driving Time
We’re lucky in the UK and Ireland, as there are some amazing areas to visit for a holiday. However, some popular destinations like Cornwall and Northumberland represent a lengthy journey for most. If you’re flexible on where you’d like to visit, but you don’t fancy spending half of your holiday in the car, our Max Driving Time tool is here to help. Enter your postcode and select the maximum number of hours you’re willing to drive to get to your holiday destination. Then you’ll then ONLY see dog-friendly properties that you can get to within this time.
Search Multiple Locations
With almost 24,000 pet-friendly cottages in beautiful locations all over the UK, it can be hard to decide where to go for a holiday. If you’re torn between two of your favourite dog-friendly destinations, you can now search for cottages in BOTH of them at the same time using the Multiple Locations tool. In fact, if you’re really struggling to choose the right location, you can add up to FIVE different destinations to search simultaneously! You can even search for properties within a certain mileage of multiple destinations or combine with Max Driving Time from home for complete control over where you want to go. For example, search for properties within five miles of Newquay, Perranporth and St Agnes to string together a list of properties available along an entire stretch of coast. This should be a real time-saver if you’re flexible on locations for a holiday with your dog.
Try a Broad Date Search
If you only have a rough idea of when you would like to go away, rather than specific dates, our Broad Date search is going to make life much easier for you. This is particularly useful if you’re flexible on dates and want to find pet-friendly properties within a certain period, such as the whole school summer holidays. Simply enter the earliest arrival date, the latest departure date and your preferred holiday duration and we will return all the possible options. We’ll also pick out the best value breaks in your date range for each property. This eliminates the time-consuming task of manually checking week-by-week.
Conduct a Multi Party Search
This unique new tool is perfect if you want to holiday with family or friends but are open to, or would even PREFER, staying in two or more separate cottages located close to one another. This is perfect for large groups, multiple families or multi-generational families with grandparents who want to stay nearby but not necessarily in the same property. To conduct a Multi Party search, enter each party’s makeup and set a maximum distance between the properties. We will then include combinations of multiple properties in search results. We even tally up the prices so you can easily see how much it’s going to cost overall.
Book a Dog Friendly Break
With these fantastic new tools, it is now an even simpler task to locate suitable properties for your next holiday. There are also many existing search filters, such as the number of dogs allowed, whether a property has a hot tub or is close to the beach, so you can really hone in on the ideal dog-friendly holiday home or cottage for you and your family to enjoy.
