Pet Friendly Places.

Post by hairydog »

Now the holiday season is upon us, (pity about the weather!).if you take your pet on holiday with you and have a favourite place or can you recommend a place to stay please tell us. :)
It always good to go to places that you have visited so you can tell us all about it first hand,ie: was the accommodation good for you AND most importantly your dog.Did they make you feel welcome? and did they cater for your dog, are there lots of places to take your dog,and ,most of all was it good value.Of course it dosent have to be a cottage some of you may have caravans so do you know of a good caravan site that takes dogs or maybe there are some campers amoungst us too,please share your experiences with us.



I will start off we have been several times to a place in Suffolk called Culford,the cottages are all on an old working farm and there are 3 on the farm. The owner is a dog man himself and they have an outdoor swimming pool, and a jacuzzi too.for us humans... :) and there are some great walks for your dogs and lots of local pubs near by that have resonably priced meals in if you dont fancy cooking(after all you are on holiday)...

Come on share.... :)

We actually have a holiday cottage in Meathop, near Grange over Sands. It is part of a converted hospital. It has a lounge, dining kitchen, small office room, double bedroom ensuite, and twin bedroom, and main bathroom. The house is 'upside down', as the views from the lounge upstairs are much better. There are TV's in the lounge, kitchen, and two bedrooms. There is a good selection of books, dvd's, videos and cd's, if the weather is not great. We do get quite a bit of rain.

Although the house has cream carpets AAGGHH! etc we are very dog friendly. As you come in through the door there is a large area which we call the doggy room. There is ample space for muddy boots, wet clothes, and grubby dogs!!

There are lots of walks around the area, and most pubs and cafes accept dogs.

If you would like any more information, although I don't actually have a brochure done yet, please give me a call - 07899 916 232. If anyone books via this message then we will dontate 10% of the fee to Jan at the rescue.

Hope you don't mind me letting you know about our cottage, but hopefully we can all benefit.

love Carole

Thanks for the info on your cottage you stayed in we often go to Grange as our caravan is quite near there and we love walking the dogs there, but of course many more stories please if you are booking a holiday now for the summer or been there before and going again please share with us.
If you are like us, we dont like to put our dogs in kennels, we like them to be with us on our holidays,and hopefully we will get a summer this year! :)

Thanks Carol for offering to let your holiday cottage to our Golden people and to give 10% to the Rescue if they book through the advert on the site. That is so very generous.
