Saunton Beach Villas – Devon
A holiday at Saunton Beach Villas is one for all the family, including the dogs! They welcome your four-legged friends all year round, and will even provide a dog bed! For a one-off fee, you can bring all of your dogs. They also run a number of ‘dogs go free’ periods throughout the year, including certain dates in January, February, June, July, October, November, and December.
Located beside the golden sands of Saunton Beach and at the foot of Braunton Burrows UNESCO Biosphere Reserve, our plot of 4, 6, and 8 bed Villas enjoy a prime location on the North Devon Coast. Saunton Beach is one of the only beaches in the area that allows dogs all year round, making it the perfect destination for dogs and their families in all seasons.
Brynygwin Country House & Cottages – North Wales
Brynygwin Self Catering Country House & Cottages could hardly be better located. Safely within the Snowdonia National Park, it enjoys a completely rural setting with 5 acres of mature informal garden full of colourful shrubs and fine trees, fields to either side, 15 acres of woodland above, and a river for fishing just across the little road hidden below.
Brynygwin proves designer-suited for holidays away from modernity, rush and noise. Children and dogs can be safe in the enclosed cottage gardens, or free in the wider grounds. Wildlife lovers can enjoy birds, bats, badgers, and wild flowers. Fishermen can use our 100 metres of private riverbank and free permit to all the Dolgellau Angling Association waters. Walkers can set out in any direction with one of the many guidesheets provided. Mountain-bikers, narrow-gauge railway riders and castle connoisseurs find themselves ringed round with choice for their chosen pursuits.

Each of the 3 bedrooms (1 double, 1 twin and a bunk bed room) have solid wooden beds with comfy mattresses and warm duvets.
Sweffling Hall Farm lies in a rural triangle between Framlingham to its inland west, coastal Southwold to the north east and seaside Felixstowe to the south - Suffolk's own golden triangle of fun, adventure and charming discover. The Suffolk coastline offers a collection of uniquely beautiful places to see, delights to experience and things to do.
