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.
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!

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?
Went for a short (6 kilometres) easy walk along forest roads out to Jerry Noddle (yes it is a place but does sound like a band member from Slade!) from Bickley Gate Car Park (Grid reference - SE 91079 91035)- our nearest car park in Dalby Forest. You can get to...

Went for a walk last week to Blakey Topping and the stone circle (what's left of it) that lies at the foot of it. A relatively easy 7km, that like many walks for us starts at the Saltergate Car Park just above the Hole of Horcum. Having achieved the stone circle we...
