UK holiday ideas with dogs

Seaside escapes

What better way to spend a dog friendly break than by visiting the seaside? Dogs famously love padding in the water and running through the sand (as well as likely chasing seagulls along the way!) – so bring your canine companion down to the beach for some seaside fun with all the family. There are plenty of holiday homes by the coast that allow dogs to join – whether you’re looking to explore the shores of Cornwall, Devon or the Welsh coastline, choosing a holiday home by the beach is the great way to make the most of weekend in the UK.

Dog walking holidays

Fancy dusting off the walking boots with a British walking weekend? Whether it’s a romantic getaway or a fun-filled family adventure, bringing along the pooch is a sure-fire way to make ever-lasting memories on a dog friendly break with the whole team. Whether it’s trekking in the Peak District or discovering the beauty of the Lake District, taking your dog along with you on the walking holiday is a great way to make the most of your trip.

Canal side holiday cottages

For something slightly less active, hiring out a cosy cottage on the canal is a great idea for a weekend away with the dog - whether it’s a group get-together or a family adventure. With a wide selection of canalside cottages that are specifically dog friendly, ABC Holiday Cottages are the perfect way to kick back, enjoy the ambience of being located at the waterside, and spend some quality time with loved ones. With these dog friendly cottages spread across both England and Wales, you can choose the ideal location for an escape further afield or a staycation closer to home.

Dog friendly canal boat holidays

To take it one step further, a canal boat holiday encompasses the prospect of a fun weekend away while welcoming any doggies on board, too. A canal boat holiday from ABC Boat Hire is the perfect dog friendly break. Whether you’re holidaying as a group of friends, a couple, or the whole family; having your canine companion on board is bound to make the weekend more special.
