Auchrannie Resort – Isle of Arran
Auchrannie was acquired by the Johnston Family in 1988 with a view to providing indoor leisure facilities on the island. In the process of achieving this objective, Auchrannie has grown from a 16 bedroom guest house to a resort now comprising two 4 star hotels with 85 rooms (28 in the House Hotel and 57 in the Resort), thirty 5 star self-catering luxury lodges, three iconic restaurants, a shop, two leisure clubs with pools, a destination spa, an outdoor adventure centre and a childrens 'Playbarn'. Auchrannie remains under the ownership of the Johnston family, who continue to play an active role in the business.
There is a charge of £10 per night, per dog, for a maximum of three nights, after that the dog stays free.
Karma St. Martin’s Hotel – Cornwall
Taking the dog with you on holiday shouldn't mean being cooped up in a caravan park or a bare-boned B&B.
From the moment your furry companion arrives at Karma St. Martin's Hotel they will be welcomed with a VIP (Very Important Pet) registration form, a welcome treat, bowls, blankets and a canine-friendly menu. The pet-loving Karma team can provide dog-sitting services whilst you are free to enjoy a spa treatment or make friends with the local seal colony on a snorkelling trip. Unlike the main beaches on St. Mary's, the beaches on St. Martin's are dog-friendly all year round.
There is an additional charge of £10 a night for dogs.
Rural Roosts – Lincolnshire
Rural Roosts offers accommodation in high quality, luxury pine lodges surrounding a fishing lake. Our lodges are comfortable, cosy and well insulated, making them an ideal place to stay all year round! We are in a fantastic location, great for action packed short breaks, relaxing holidays with friends and family, wildlife watching, fishing or cycling holidays.
The Pine Lodges are part of Manor Farm, located in the quiet village of Stainfield, about eight miles east of the City of Lincoln. The lodges are nestled in the middle of a 300 acre, beautiful grassland farm grazed by sheep, lambs, a couple of donkeys and Rosie the pony! The farm also features wild flower meadows, wetlands and wildlife in abundance (a bird watchers paradise!) and is just perfect for rural retreats.
Eagle Brae – Inverness-shire
Eagle Brae sleeps up to 26 guests across seven cabins. The maximum any one cabin can take is six. Spacious, yet cosy, the interior of each home is a work of art in itself. Log burning stoves, Scottish motifs, local artwork and period sporting paraphernalia blend with wooden furnishings carved in the Himalayas to create an ambience unlike any you may have experienced before.
Eagle Brae is set among the grandeur of some of the wildest glens, highest mountains and largest lochs of the northern Scottish Highlands. Several Munros – Scottish mountains over 3,000ft high – lie at the head of nearby Glen Affric and Glen Strathfarrar, offering the perfect challenge for energetic Eagle Brae adventurers. Three major lochs feed into Rivers Farrar and Glass, providing excellent salmon fishing on Eagle Brae’s own private beats. Also within easy reach is Strathfarrar’s indigenous pinewood forest and regenerating wildflower grasslands.
Doggy Cottages – Dorset
Doggy Cottages have over 100 hand-picked cottages welcoming pets. Their cottages are perfect for exploring Dorset, with many of the properties located within minutes of coastal and country walks, pet friendly beaches and village pubs with beer gardens.
Open all year and offering a selection of breaks to suit you.
