Dog on Dartmoor

Are you planning a summer holiday with your dog? With more people holidaying at home, taking your pet on holiday is becoming more and more popular. After all, with beaches to bound along, forests to scamper through and time for long walks on the coast and through countryside, why would you want to leave the dog at home? However, with everyone looking for a pooch-friendly holiday pad, finding a holiday cottage for you and your four-legged friend can be more difficult in the peak holiday season. 

At Dog Friendly Retreats we’ve made it easy to find a pet-friendly cottage when demand is high, by introducing our new Broad Date Search tool. It can be frustrating spending hours scrolling online, having to change your dates when you can’t pin down the perfect location. With one of the UK’s largest portfolios of dog-friendly holiday cottages to choose from, we’ve already got some of the widest availability, even in peak holiday season. And now, our new search tool makes it simple to find your perfect pad without scrolling through thousands of locations and dates. 

How does it work? 

Simply head to our search bar and use the ‘Broad Dates’ option. Here you can enter your earliest possible arrival date, and latest possible departure date, along with the duration of your holiday. Then, kickback for a moment and daydream about long woodland walks with your dog scampering through the undergrowth, or barefoot beach strolls with sandy toes and sandy paws – while we come up with all of the available locations to suit your requirements.
