Best places to visit for dog friendly holidays

Bring the dog on your holiday and lap up everything the South East has to offer with welcoming accommodation, pubs, restaurants, events and activities. Our ruff guide of the best places to take your dog will ensure you'll never have to leave your beloved pet at home.

Dog Friendly Beaches

The South East is a fabulous place for dog walking and provides an immense variety of landscapes to enjoy, from hills, parkland and woodlands to river valleys with most Country Parks accepting dogs on leads. There are many dog friendly beaches in South East England, but most have restrictions at certain times of the year so please check before you travel with the relevant local authority. The Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate coast is a perfect area for you and your four legged friend.

Dog Friendly Pubs

If visiting a Great Country Pub with your dog is your thing, then visit the Great County Pubs website for a selection of Great Country pubs that welcome dogs.

Find out which dog friendly places to visit offer the facilities to suit your needs, scenic routes for dog walking and details of dog shows that take place in the South East.

Top seven places to take your dog while on holiday

Cotswold Wildlife Park and Gardens in Oxfordshire has won a prestigious national award for its dedication to dogs having received the most nominations from the public in the Kennel Club’s Be Dog Friendly Awards, and took the lead to be crowned top dog in the Day Out category.

Unlike many attractions, we recognise our four legged friends are part of the family and therefore a big part of your day out which is why we welcome dogs at Batsford. All we ask is you keep them on a short lead at all times and make sure you clean up after your pet.

For a great family day out and miles of beautiful pathways ideal for dog walking, head to Hampshire and Exbury Gardens & Steam Railway.

Visiting the Isle of Wight and looking for somewhere to go without leaving the dog at home? Then visit Ventnor Botanic Garden with Guided Tours of an impressive collection of rare, subtropical and exotic plants, a complimentary Children’s Trail worksheet and an outdoor playground.

The forest tracks of Bedgebury Forest in Kent are perfect for allowing your four legged friends exercise off the lead and Rubie the Schnauzer has written her very own guide for dogs to enjoy the area.

This East Sussex vineyard England’s leading Eco-vineyard tourist destination and offers ‘Vineyard & Woodland Nature Trail + Wine Tasting’ for individuals, families and groups. Dogs are made very welcome, but have to settle for water rather than wine!

The pet friendly self-catering accommodation has an ideal spot to take your dog. With a waterfront house and a courtyard garden or an apartment over the archway leading into the same small waterfront, you'll find plenty of places to walk the dog.

Kent & Sussex Holiday Cottages have over 250 Visit England approved and graded properties to choose from – many pet friendly too with lovely gardens for your four-legged friends to enjoy.
