    This is in the Peak District. The garden shown isn’t secure but the small yard at the back is. It says 4 bedrooms but only 3 were really usable. The best part was how quiet it was - one side is the graveyard to the church! Opposite is the pub carpark but I stayed over the 5th of November and didn’t hear anything. I didn’t like the turning on to the main road from the village. It was really difficult turning right. I wouldn’t book if there is any chance of snow as you’ll be cut off. There are loads of dog friendly activities close by.

    I still cant find anything remote and secluded for April :( Our usual other go-to is a lovely Boathouse on a very quiet lake. Even that's booked up *sigh*

    Spent last night looking for places overlooking lakes or the sea but not finding much :(

    I was going to ask this. I found a lovely place in Filey that is literally opposite the beach but its a terraced house nothing remote.

    When in April as it is half term so it makes it a lot harder.

    I’ve not been yet (hoping the road to it isn’t too bad) but this has availability after half term.

    I also saw this for summer but it was too remote. Again it is available later on in April.

    I might be able to offer some suggestions for more remote cottages, but need an idea of where you wish to visit and also your budget.

    Ideally Saturday 14th, give or take a a day or two.

    I’ll take a look at those, thank you :)

    Area - anywhere really. We are in the midlands so anything within about 3 ish hours really. I don’t drive, OH does but he drives all over the country with his job so we try to limit too much driving when he’s not working.

    Budget - anything up to about £1000 ish

    And not too many sheep. Oscar doesnt like them. Well no, given the chance he probably likes them too much :Wideyed

    @Westie Mum we stayed here
    https://www.cottage-holiday-wales.co.uk/orchard-barn-eardisley a few years ago. It was lovely but not near the sea. We also had a 5 night break here last July
    https://www.cottage-holiday-wales.co.uk/sett-converted-barn-studio-holiday-let
    It's a beautiful studio but again, not near the sea.

    Have a look at Blaentrothy Cottages & their sister sites (links at the bottom of their page). They have several properties that are dog friendly & a lot of them are unusual/quirky x

    I hope you don’t mind me jumping in, but I am interested in remote cottages in Scotland for January 2019. It would be for a couple and two labradors. Price I usually limit us to is £400 for this time of year.

    Any help be much appreciated.

    @Westie Mum have you heard of Pack Holidays (the owner also owns one of the East Ruston Cottages, her name is Gail and she's lovely). I wouldn't recommend Daisy Cottage as Palling can get busy but Hickling is quiet and the area is sheep free.

    Also try http://www.eastrustoncottages.co.uk/availability.php from the list Mid Thatch is also in Palling but the lane it's in is quiet and it has views over the fields not the main street to the beach. I've driven past Corner Cottage and it's very quiet there and free 14th April.

    Looking for a great dog friendly holiday cottage down Norfolk way if anyone has any suggestions? Needs to be close to a dog friendly but not touristy beach (short drive, pref walk) and also lots of dog friendly country walks. Four people, three beds, one small dog!

    To pay in for any help, if anyone is wanting to go up Hawkshead way I can recommend https://www.holidaycottages.co.uk/north-of-england/cumbria/wordsworth-house?n=7&pd=3

    Dog friendly, close to pubs / restaurants / shops in a VERY dog friendly touristy village (dogs in all shops kind of deal). Loads of walks VERY close by (including gorgeous mountains and lakes). House itself has a fully enclosed and private garden and hardwood floors in half of the downstairs. The only drawback is the living room is fully carpetted and there is no dog cleaning facilities downstairs (except a freezing cold outside hose!), so plan ahead if you take your pooch out on a muddy walk... We had to wrangle our excited boy up the carpetted stairs and into one of the bathrooms after he rolled in allsorts. Easily done with a 11kg dog, but good luck with your Labs!
