Read on for a round-the-UK tour of our very best Pet Friendly Breaks this October Half Term!


Cosy Ullapool Cottage

Situated in a secluded setting surrounded by its own mature garden grounds, S42143 is a large, detached cottage for up to eight guests. Near the shores of beautiful Little Loch Broom in the Scottish Highlands, it is an ideal ’get away from it all’ holiday for larger families or combined families. With each room lovingly furnished, you’ll never want to leave. And best of all? It accepts pets!

Beautiful location, wonderfully peaceful cottage with excellent amenities. Perfect relaxing holiday home in a beautiful part of Scotland

Beautiful Beccles Rental

S25527 is light and airy rental close to Beccles Quay in Suffolk with local shops and restaurants only a short walk away. Refurbished to exacting standards with modern decor, you can expect lush king size beds, chandeliers and a gorgeous outside patio area.  It’s also less than 10 miles from the nearest beach, and it’ll accept two pets!

This is a beautiful cottage and is very nicely decorated and excellently kitted out with everything you need. The welcome pack is outstanding. We had a lovely break.

Beautiful Holne Cottage

On the edge of Holne in the South Hams district in Devon attached to the owners’ home, a comfortable ‘upside down’ cottage created from one end of a barn. There’s an enclosed, level lawned garden with table and chairs beyond the cottage with lovely rural and moorland views. Enjoy en suite bathrooms and pet-friendly accomodation, aswell as an open fire. A really well considered and very welcoming base from which to explore both Dartmoor and the South Hams.

The cottage was beautifully situated in a lovely location, suitable for country and coast. The cottage was well equipped and very clean and comfortable. We would certainly book again. A wonderful holiday enjoyed by the whole family and The village shop/cafe is well worth a visit.

Excellent Hayle Barn

3 miles from Hayle in Cornwall, this well-appointed barn conversion sits in a tranquil position approached via a private drive just off from the road. With it’s own parking area, it’s situated on a working farm with shops, pubs, the harbour and restaurants all within 3 miles. The golden sands of Hayle provides a safe beach ideal for surfing. On the other side of the bay, St Ives has a host of galleries, including the Tate and many great attractions for family fun. A short drive will take you to the south coast where you can visit the town of Penzance, with its long sandy beach at Marazion, St Michaels Mount and the fishing villages of Newlyn and Mousehole, with spectacular scenery to enjoy on your way.

Terrific little cottage, always re-decorated every time we go, perfectly clean, good location.

Superb Weymouth Cottage

S43403 is situated in the popular Dorset suburb of Wyke Regis, just minutes from Pirates Cove, a popular sandy inlet at the famous Fleet lagoon. This modern cottage is a newly built to high specifications with a social styled combined kitchen/diner and comfortable lounge situated on the first floor to take advantage of the views of the Fleet lagoon, which may be enjoyed from the two balconies.  A few minutes’ walk away is the pretty old Wyke Village and Wyke Square and the popular Wyke Smugglers pub – great for live music.  Portland is just a five minute car journey away, home to the popular pursuits of walking, bird watching, beachcombing and coasteering.

A place to fall in love with! We come to the Weymouth area every year but this was one of the best houses we have stayed in – and such a beautiful location overlooking The Fleet lagoon with all its wildlife.


Gorgeous Crosby Ravensworth Cottage

S70129 is a two bedroomed converted former school house, ideally situated at the edge of the peaceful village of Crosby Ravensworth and within easy walking distance of the local pub.  Dating back to the 1700’s this spacious property is in an ideal location for those wanting to explore Cumbria, Lancashire and the Yorkshire Dales.  There is a delightful garden to relax in, or if the weather is not in your favour why not take a seat in the sun room that overlooks the Beck. If you are lucky you may catch a glimpse of the Red Squirrels, Ducks and other wildlife that visit the area.  S70129 has retained much of the character of the original building such as the lofty ceilings, arched windows and wooden floors and is an ideal holiday destination for families or groups of friends.
