Dorset Pet Friendly Cottages
Located on the South West English Coast, Dorset is a popular UK holiday destination. If you're looking for a cottage holiday close to beaches, seaside resorts and bustling towns then Dorset could be the place for you. And if you don't want to leave any of the family behind including your pet, don't worry as all of our Dorset cottages are pet friendly.
Some cottages welcome one well behaved dog, others accept two dogs so it's worth checking each individual cottage information to find just what you are looking for. Many of our Dorset cottages have private gardens or are close to some excellent walks so you should be able to get out and give your four legged friend plenty of fun and exercise.
Over the summer there are some exciting events taking place in Dorset including Wareham Carnival, Tolpuddle Martyrs' Festival and Yeovuilton Air Day so if you're interested in any of these check out the latest dates so you can be sure to be in Dorset when they are taking place.
A cottage holiday in Dorset gives you the best of both worlds with both coast and countryside to explore. The gorgeous Jurassic Coast stretches for 95 miles from the East of Devon to Dorset's Studland Bay. From walks to world famous fossil hunting there is so much to do in this area. If you prefer to take it easy why not take a coastal cruise and admire the spectacular scenery as you cruise by. The countryside in the Dorset region is also well worth a visit, and much of it is protected. There is an abundance of wildlife together with water meadows, valleys, rivers and heathlands to explore.
The market towns in the area provide some excellent days out from Bridport and Beaminster to Christchurch and Wareham. Market days in Wareham are currently Thursdays and Saturdays and are a fun way to pick up a bargain. For a historic day trip visit Wimbourne Minster which is steeped in history. The charming streets, courtyards and quaint shops and boutiques are perfect for exploring.
Just some of our favourite pet friendly cottages in Dorset include Crabapple Cottage which is a cosy accommodation sleeping 4. Enjoying an elevated position we think this makes a fantastic base to see what Dorset has to offer and you will be close to Shaftsbury town centre. The woodburning stove adds a charming feel to this cottage.
For a romantic getaway we like Candy Cottage near Sherbourne located in Thornford village. Romantic features include a roll top bath and a wood burning stove. Underfloor heating in the bathroom adds a luxurious touch. Close to castles and an abbey in the region there are some great days out on hand. In addition you can easily visit Bath using the nearby railway station.
For great views then The Old Tack Room cottage in Ibberton is highly recommended. Horse lovers will especially like this property as it's been converted from an old tack room. Sleeping up to 4 guests this charming accommodation is located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. There are plenty of lovely country walks from the doorstep making this ideal for holidays with pets.
