After all, it's not enough to just pack up the car and take your chances. You need to know you're headed somewhere with a little something for everyone.  

Somewhere everyone is welcome - including your best friend.

Take a look at our hand-picked selection of the best pet-friendly UK stays, and you'll never have to ponder again!  

Packed with sumptuous creature comforts for you (think cosy throws, soothing views, and crackling woodburners), there are plenty of treats in store for your four-legged friend, too.

Not to mention endless stretches of sand and grass...perfect for fresh-air activity and adventure, no matter how many legs you happen to have!

We've picked out ten of our favourites below, but don't forget to check out our Dog-Friendly category for hundreds more - and if your four-legged friend happens to be a horse, don't fret - we have a category for Horse-Friendly holidays too!
