When it comes to dog friendly holidays in the UK, Kingshay Barton is hard to beat; you don’t need to go anywhere for walkies because besides the 2 acre grounds, right on the doorstep there are acres of beautiful fields and hills to roam. All you have to do is go through the gate at the top of the garden and it’s all there, beckoning you and your four legged friends to go and explore. What's more, you won't necessarily need to bring your pets' beds with you because there are two extra large crates supplied for your mutts to sleep in.

If you fancy going further afield and seeing more of this beautiful part of the world you’re spoilt for choice because there are so many pretty villages where you can pull up and stroll around the lanes, winding up at the local pub for a leisurely lunch. Wander the ramparts at Ham Hill Country Park, have a pint at The Prince of Wales, enjoy the views; pootle down the road to Wayford Woods, a spectacular sight in springtime when the rhododendrons and bluebells are in full bloom. Langdon Hill is good too, wander out to Golden Cap for astonishing sea views.

If your pooch likes a doggie paddle then the good news is that you can be on the coast within 30 minutes. West Dorset has some varied and beautiful beaches – Charmouth, Lyme Regis, West Bay, Eype, Cogden and West Bexington are all dog friendly but do check for any seasonal restrictions. Wherever you go, whatever you do, your four legged friend will have the best time ever and he certainly won’t be missing out on the fun! Book your dog friendly holiday in the West Country today!
