Dogs at Aysgarth Falls

Woodcroft with Woody and Wilma…

Last month we were lucky enough to welcome Woody and Wilma, along with their owner Megan to Woodcroft Cottage; our cosy two bedroom, dog friendly holiday cottages in Yorkshire… The perfect escape to the country after a ruff week!

“Going on a dog friendly holiday doesn’t mean you have to miss out on luxury accommodation. We’re so lucky in the UK that there are so many lovely holiday homes that allow your 4-legged family members to join in the fun. Holiday at Home invited us to experience one of their many luxury dog friendly properties; Woodcroft Cottage just outside of Richmond, North Yorkshire.

Knowing just how much we love North Yorkshire, we couldn’t wait to go back, and it was perfect. Woodcroft Cottage has two bedrooms sleeping 4; a great getaway for two couples or a family of 4. Downstairs has a cosy lounge with a log burner which is perfect to warm up on a chilly winters day and a large kitchen/diner with plenty of room for humans and dogs!”

“When looking for dog friendly holiday cottages in Yorkshire, the outdoor space is an important factor. Well Woodcroft Cottage had its own enclosed garden, with artificial grass so no muddy paws [Hurrah!] There’s an outdoor table and chairs for the warmer months, but the main attraction was the hot tub! We arrived on the Friday and that evening it started to snow, so sitting in a hot tub with snowflakes falling around you was very magical…

Holiday at Home leave lots of information about the local area and one of the things left in our cottage was a map of a walk into Richmond along the river. Very simple and easy to follow. The weather was slightly gloomy that day but it didn’t spoil our walk. The path was easy to follow with the map and you can follow the river all the way into town.”

Dog Friendly holiday

“Once you arrive in Richmond there’s lots of places to shop and stop for food. We went into The Kings Head for a delicious lunch and it was full of dogs! Totally dog friendly and the dogs were spoilt with treats from the bar. Once we’d warmed up it was time to walk back again and the dogs couldn’t wait for exploring the river round 2.

Sunday we decided to head for Ingleton Falls as so many people had recommended it. It was an hour’s drive away from Woodcroft Cottage, but it was the most beautiful drive across the Yorkshire Dales.

Ingleton Waterfall trails entry was £6 per person, that entry fee meant that all the paths were really well kept and maintained. We walked with a fast pace with a couple of photo & drink stops and it took us about 2 & 1/2 hours but it’s not one to rush as it’s so pretty. Dogs are allowed off their lead the whole away apart from the section with sheep in and it was such a great walk with fantastic views.

We had the most amazing time in Yorkshire and will definitely be back!”
