Our Favourite Dog-Friendly Cabins, For A UK Holiday Everyone Can Enjoy!

24 January 2024

Ever felt guilty for leaving your best four-legged friend behind when you go away?

(As fellow pet-owners, we totally get it. Being subjected to those confused furry faces as they see you leave without them is a holiday ordeal in itself!)

We wouldn’t mind, but it’s not even the simplest option. First you’ve got to find and call in a trusted sitter, which can be inconvenient and pricey. Then you have to find a way to stop yourself from worrying all holiday-long: have they got enough to eat? Are they lonely? And of course, you’re missing them just as much as they miss you.

That’s why the best solution by far is to take your dog on holiday with you! And if you love cabin holidays (who doesn’t?) you’re in particular luck, as we’ve rounded up some of our favourites to share with you, right here.

Each one of these unique UK cabins allows at least one well-behaved dog to stay with you – and some may even offer a few added treats! So the next time you arrange a break, you can rest assured it’ll be one everyone can enjoy, whether they’ve got two legs or four.
