Looking after our furry friends

As dog owners we know that trying to book kennels for your four legged friend whilst you go away on your holiday does add extra costs.  That is  why we have a number of dog friendly self catering cottages that allow you and your canine friend the perfect self catering holiday break.  Yorkshire is the ideal place to take your dog on holiday – big beaches, open countryside and forest walks are all close to our holiday cottages.  We ask that you bring your own dog bed and that you are respectful of other guests and please clean up after your dog.

All of our self catering cottages accept dogs; our smaller one bedroom cottages accept one well behaved dog, our larger cottages accept two.  Any exception must be agreed in advance with Cliff House.

A few basic rules for our dog friendly holiday cottages

  • On a lead at all times when outside in the grounds
  • Off the furniture and out of the bedrooms when inside
  • Never left alone
  • Clean up as you go
  • Thats it!

Have a look at the cottages that we have on offer for you and your canine friend.

Where to take your dog

If you are looking for dog walking inspiration on your visit to the Yorkshire Coast – have a look at this link on the Welcome to Yorkshire site.  Some of the local beaches, whilst always allowing dog walking, restrict where you can walk your dog during the high season.  Please have a look at the list below…

In land you  can take your dog for a walk up on the North Yorkshire Moors, closer to our cottages you can go to Dalby Forest, where your dog can run off the lead (but under control).

Why not try a short walk out to Thomason Foss and link that up with walking to Myllan Spout (the highest water fall in the North Yorkshire Moors), just out side of Goathland?
