Places To Travel In 2015 With Your Dog
Most dog owners hate it when they have to say goodbye to their dog before going on holiday. You don’t have to leave your dog behind when you go on holiday. They can join in the fun too. It’s becoming much easier to take your dog to places in the UK and also throughout Europe. Here are places we recommend visiting with your dog this year.
The Isle Of Wight
If you fancy going somewhere a bit different but don’t want to travel too far then the Isle of Wight is a good option. All you have to do is catch a ferry from Portsmouth and you will be there in no time. Dogs travel free on most of the ferries.
There are plenty of fabulous dog walks on the Isle of Wight. Dogs are also welcome on lots of the beaches all year round. Inland there are fantastic terrains to explore from woodland to downland and valleys. With over 500 miles of footpaths to explore you certainly won’t run out of dog walks. There are also lots of dog friendly hotels and B & B’s to choose from.
Also just across the channel is France. Whilst the South of France is lovely, if you want to go on a road trip it’s a bit too far for your dog to travel. It takes around 15 hours to travel to parts of the South of France by car. Brittany on the other hand is a bit closer, it takes between five and six hours to drive. You can of course fly if you prefer.
There are a few dog friendly hotels around Brittany but you will probably have more luck hiring out a holiday rental. Lots of cottages, mobile homes, campsites and apartments are dog friendly. There are quite a few lakes in Brittany which is ideal for dog walkers. You can go on endless walks around the lakes and in the woodland. There are quite a few restrictions on taking dogs to beaches so make sure you check in advance.
The French love their dogs, you will see them everywhere while travelling through France. Dogs are often in supermarkets, restaurants and pubs so you shouldn’t have problem taking Fido with you.
If you want to stay closer to home and holiday on UK shores then Cornwall is an excellent choice. Many holidaymakers take their dogs with them to Cornwall every year. There’s miles and miles of countryside and some gorgeous beaches to enjoy. Your dog will absolutely love exploring the different landscape in Cornwall.
Plenty of hotels, holiday rentals and B & B’s allow dogs throughout Cornwall. Some beaches in Cornwall do not allow dogs during peak season, to find some dog friendly beaches in Cornwall.
If it’s extremely long dog walks you are after you won’t be disappointed with Anglesey. Here you can take advantage of 125 miles of coastal paths and take in the stunning sea views.

Lots of Welsh pubs are also happy to allow dogs, people often stop off at the pubs for a break in the middle of their walks. Snowdonia isn’t too far away from Anglesey if you fancy more challenging dog walks in the mountains.
