As any self-respecting dog owner knows, the act of booking a whirlwind romantic break can be fraught with anxiety.
Is your preferred sitter free… if not, who can you trust to look after your beloved fur-baby? How will you stop them feeling lonely when you’re not there?
Booking a dog-friendly retreat is the easy answer, but you’ll naturally want to ensure it’s suitably luxurious and awe-inspiring for you as a couple, too!
So… how about bedding down in an architect-designed Cornish cottage, with easy access to the South West Coast Path for long, breezy walks? Rich in luxury, there’s a secure garden for your dog, and a scenic patio with outdoor sofas and a barbecue for you.
Meanwhile, in Dumfries and Galloway awaits a dog-friendly beach cottage – a former telephone exchange, no less! – with the most incredible sea views and a stargazing hot tub.
For fans of unplugged nature there’s an off-grid, hand-built cabin in an idyllic Welsh meadow corner… boasting a rotating stargazer bed for you, and three-and-a-half acres of prime running-and-playing space for your best friend.
We’ve hand-picked each of these retreats to provide the perfect holiday setting, whether you’ve got two legs or four. So why not browse the full list now?
