    Hello All!

    I am toying with the idea of going on a 'dog holiday' (Lake District or something like that) and wondered if anybody else has, or has any advice/ recommendations.

    Bearing in mind I have 7 dogs, I know that I am pretty limited!

    Hope everyone is well :D

    Hi I've been on several and it's very difficult to find places that are truly dog friendly, they say they are in the adverts but when you get there you usually find some difficulty. One I went to said they have decking in the garden, yes they did, all over it, no grass at all :rolleyes: :rolleyes:
    The only place that I've been thats completely dog friendly is here
    Little Dumpledale Farm

    7 dogs would be no problem :)

    I only know the Highlands of Scotland but there are several places I know that accept dogs, Ballater is an amazing village with tonnes of dog friendly walking areas and nature reserves that are fab for walking and several dog friendly pubs (though I think only 1-2 per person otherwise soon be crowded lol)

    Inveray Cottage

    if you have a word with Alistair Cassie (the owner) he is very accomodating about pets - his rules are the house is as you found it when you leave so clean and pay for any breakages - he's a really nice guy though, have known him since I was wee

    some of my pics taken in the area

    Unfortunately an awful lot of sites will only allow 2 dogs per pitch.

    Lol, I'm all for being cold, wet & muddy, but I do like to have a hot shower afterwards! ::p

    Buy/hire a motor home or caravan and join the caravan club, they have no limit to the amount of dogs you can take on site and have free hot showers :D

    I am going to the lake District on holiday this year with my Dad and Sonny. I one I am going to only accepts 2 dogs though. I usually go further up into Scotland (Inverness and Oban) so know more up that way. I have found a few links I used when searching for the lake district though not sure if they will be off any use but may be worth a look as there are a few that say they accept any number of dogs

    We camped at a campsite near Cromer and I have 3 dogs, someone else had about 6 terriers, it was a lovely site with a games room, kitchen, fridges freezers and showers and toilets. ;)

    There are lot's of great dog friendly cottages dotted around, but I think you'll strugle to find one that will take 7 :eek:

    Maybe you should just book YOURSELF into kennels with them, I am sure they won't mind you sharing :D

    Good luck finding somewhere nice and have a great holiday :thumbup1:

    Yes I've had the same thing a couple of times. Happy to take the money from you but make it clear they don't like dogs when you get there. Always ask about the garden as well. A "garden" can be a flower bed on the side of the road with no fence between the door and the traffic in my experience or shared with another cottage whose occupants don't like dogs! Tricky!

    However, have had lots of lovely doggy holidays and had no problem but then I only had one dog! Good luck and hope you find somewhere.
