With a dog loving nation (and a workplace full of dog owners here at A Farley) we thought we would share with you some of our favourite dog friendly destinations to visit in the UK along with accommodation and restaurant recommendations!
Because we believe every dog also deserves a holiday!
The Peak District
The Peak District National Park in central England and Derbyshire features steep limestone valleys and pretty little towns. You can enjoy taking time out with your dog to ramble through the woodland or climb the stony peaks. For older dogs or pups, there are plenty of gardens to take a leisurely strolls and admire the scenery.
There is a vast range of accommodation to choose from, from cosy converted barns, stone cottages and luxury manors. One of our favourite locations to stay is Bakwell which is well known for its unique and delicious Pudding , the Bakewell Tart! We love Bolehill Farm Holiday Cottages set in 20 acres of ground, making the perfect place to stay. For dinner time take a trip to the The Castle for a pub style dinner in a 16th century inn featuring a cosy bar!
Featured in the East of England, Norfolk offers miles of walking on the Heritage Coast exploring the coastal villages and climbing the sand dunes on the vast sandy beaches.
The most perfect location and beach for walkies we believe is Wells-Next-to-The-Sea. A picturesque dog-friendly beach, where dogs can have complete free range. After a long day on the beach visit The Globe Inn for delicious food and a few drinks
Our top pick to stay in this area is Burnham Cottage in wells! You can never go wrong with a log burner!
Featured in the south west of England, Devon comprises of white sandy beaches and fossil cliffs. The English Riviera offer a series of picturesque, south-coast harbour towns. Devon is a very popular holiday destination for pet owners as the majority of Devons pristine beaches have little to no dog restrictions even during the summer months. With Miles of white sandy beaches and clear blue water what’s not to love for you and your 4 legged friend!
We love this gorgeous estary view apartment featured on the water’s edge and there is plently to choose from in Salcombe . Sitting outside on a summers day in Salcombe has often been compared to sitting out in the south of france! Take an afternoon stroll down to the winking prawn and feast on fresh sea food and deliciously cooked bbq food.
The Lake District
Another amazing location to visit with the dogs, of course, is the stunning Lake District in Cumbria. With miles and miles of walking trails and breath-taking views, you and your dog are set to have the greatest holiday.
One of A Farleys top Lake district locations is Grasmere, featured in the centre of the lake district with the well-known Grasmere lake. Grasmere has plenty to do from hikes, coffee shop stops and of course a visit to the famous gingerbread shop to get the UKs best gingerbread!
Grasmere offers lots of holiday cottages to stay in, our favourite is The Grange End Coach house where even your pooch will be left a little treat!
After a long day walking take a trip to the Travellers Inn for a scrumptious pub dinner! Sit outside and admire the beautiful scenery! We recommend the fish!
While there is so many beautiful desintations in the UK we truly believe visiting any of the above will leave long lasting memories for you and your dog!
