Dog Friendly Cottages in Dorset

In Hardy’s Wessex you can visit the impressive remains of Corfe Castle and the equally impressive Cerne Abbas giant. For fans of the beach, the expansive Dorset coastline boasts popular resorts such as Lyme Regis, Bournemouth, Poole, Swanage and Weymouth. Call in for a pint of prawns at one of the many great pubs to be found along the fossil-rich Jurassic Coast – dogs welcome at many pubs – and explore the 185 million years of history that lies exposed for all to see.

Pets will also love the miles of coastline and the rolling countryside, perfect for running off a bit of excess energy! To make the holiday extra special, you can also try searching our list of cottages with open fires which are great for drying off a wet pooch.
