“Remember, remember the fifth of November…”
When John Milton wrote those iconic words back in 1626, he implored the British public never to forget the anniversary of the failed Gunpowder Plot.
But these days, the sound of exploding fireworks offers an ear-shattering reminder all of its own!
As much fun as Bonfire Night can be (we’ve got fond memories of sticky toffee apples and writing our names in the air with fizzing sparklers), many pet owners dread its arrival each year.
Loud, sudden bangs and flashes from fireworks can terrify our furry friends, sending them into a quivering frenzy.
As 5th November draws closer, advice to help soothe petrified cats and dogs ranges from playing calming music, to closing all windows and creating a safe space for them to hide.
But if you’d rather get away from it all completely, we’ve put together a list of retreats that prioritise peace and tranquillity.
Some are blissfully remote, while others boast sound-proofing elements that promise to muffle the loudest of outside noises… giving you and your pet some much-needed relaxation-time, even on Bonfire Night!*
*While we can’t guarantee that you will be in complete silence during your stay, we’ve combed our listings in search of the quietest retreats according to specific advice from the owners, and the many reviews they have received.
