Holiday homes perfect for pooches…

Yorkshire is home for animal lovers, and now nearly 60% of UK households own pets. Taking the top prize, dogs now find their happy place in an estimated twelve and a half million homes. We certainly don’t like to keep our furry friends trapped inside. We understand it’s only natural you want to bring them on holiday and that is why Holiday at Home have plenty of perfect properties for your pooches too!

Staycations make bringing your dog on holiday easier

Everyone struggles to leave their pet behind, not enjoying booking in a kennel or putting them in the hold on a flight. UK staycations however make that simple to avoid. Drive or take the train to a majestic area of Britain and embrace the beauty of a home away from home. Self-catering accommodation gives you that extra flexibility that a hotel can’t.

Naturally, we want to spend time with our loved ones with us on holidays, and that shouldn’t have to exclude our dogs. They make excellent travel companions, while also being a snuggly family member. Plus, those holiday photos are hardly complete without them! Make sure your chosen dog-friendly holiday home is suitable for you; think about if the garden needs to be enclosed, where the dog might sleep, and how many pets are allowed.

Your dog encourages more exploration

Dogs are active and curious beings, so bringing your furry friend is a great way to ensure you fully embrace the outdoors. Play frisbee in the garden, swim and catch some sun together, run along the beach, or explore the many hiking paths in the area. Of course, your dog will also love lolloping through picturesque villages, making coffee pit stops with you, and discovering the local pubs.

From inclusive beer gardens and pubs to animal-friendly activities, it is becoming the norm for dogs to be welcome in many places you go. So, if you choose the right place, you can absolutely enjoy your holiday to the fullest while still having your dog by your side. The challenge is then to find a luxury dog-friendly holiday home that will live up to the task…

Fantastic long weekend; four adults, four children, the dog, and plenty of room for us all. Loved the outdoor space and facilities. Everything you need is provided, we didn’t want to leave.

Charlotte stayed at Henry, July 2022

We stayed for 5 days with our 2 dogs and had a fantastic, relaxing time. The lodge was very clean and the décor and furnishings are of very good taste. This is our 3rd Brompton Lakes visit, it won’t be our last!
