Pet-friendly holidays with Helpful Holidays

Pet-Friendly Holiday Cottages

Our four-legged friends are a wonderful source of joy for young and old, but when it comes to holiday time, things can sometimes get a bit tricky. If you’re holidaying within the UK, you’ll naturally want to take your best friend with you, after all he’s part of the family. However, you’ll find quite often that hotels and holiday homes won’t accept pets. Thankfully, this is not the case with Helpful Holidays.  

We welcome every member of your family and that includes your dog. We have 450 cottages right across Devon, Cornwall, Somerset and Dorset just waiting to welcome your wagging companions. Many of our owners go the extra mile to ensure that all his needs are met, and in one case (Crooked ChimneyCottage - P70), even to the extent of leaving the right size tins of dog food, dog blankets and height adjustable food and water bowls.

Fresh air and abundant space

The West Country is a dream for dogs, with its rolling hills and miles of countryside to sniff around and explore. Many local pubs will welcome dogs with a refreshing bowl of water after a long run over the moors. The region is also home to an abundance of dog-friendly beaches, where youngsters and their four-legged friends can splash in the surf and dig in the sand to their heart’s content.

Fun, family days out are a joy as many of the leading West Country attractions and gardens go out of their way to make dogs feel at home. The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Trebah and Caerhays Castle & Gardens are just a few well worth a visit, whilst your best friend also gets his own ticket on cruise boats, trams and steam trains across the West Country. A splendid example is the Dartmouth Steam Railway, one of the finest steam journeys with breath-taking scenery as it passes along the wooded slopes bordering the Dart Estuary and then along the English Riviera Coast to Paignton. 

Great choice of pet-friendly homes

Browse our website, ask for a brochure or simply call to speak to someone who has been to a cottage which catches your eye and who can fill you in on extra details to help you make your perfect choice.  Many of our team have their own dogs so can offer really valuable insights to help you create the ideal, pooch-friendly holiday.

With a huge range of holiday homes welcoming dogs across the length and breadth of the West Country, we’re ready to guide you to just the right place for you and your best friend to enjoy a really wonderful holiday.
