Paw-fect Dog-Friendly Stays for Couples and Solo Travellers

10 November 2021

Leaving your best four-legged friend behind when you go on holiday can feel like waving goodbye to a piece of your heart.

And that’s no way to start a well-deserved break… at least, not in our humble opinion.

(In fact, you could say it’s ‘barking’ mad!)

So we’ve rounded up a few of our favourite dog-friendly retreats, for couples and solo travellers whose beloved pooch feels less like a pet, and more like one of the family.
