DOG FRIENDLY HOLIDAY COTTAGES IN YORKSHIRE
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.
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.

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?
