Dog friendly self catering accommodation in the UK

Dog friendly self catering accommodation in the UK

The United Kingdom is a nation of pet lovers and more importantly a nation of devoted dog lovers. At some stage in life I have either looked after or owned many dogs from Heinz 57 breeds right the way through to pedigree Dobermans. Our whole lives revolve around our animals actually if you’re a dog lover like me then in fact they are more like children. Many years ago it was almost frowned upon to own a dog, to take a dog out for a walk, to take a dog into a shop and almost completely unnatural to even want to take a dog or your family pet on holiday with you. But look around you now and you almost cannot walk down any street or alongside any beach anywhere in the British Isles without seeing a well-behaved and well mannered dog on a lead with its owners. So it’s really encouraging to now feel that as pet owners we are able to take our animals on holiday with us as well. Unless you really want to have a holiday abroad with your animals it can be expensive when flying to take your dogs abroad on holiday with you. This is why many dog owners preferred to find a house, a cottage or an apartment in the UK to take their summer holidays or any other holiday for that matter of fact. There are a few hotels that will accept dogs but normally for health and safety reasons for example where food is being served in restaurants etc. then it is rarely that it is is possible and not normally the norm. At Beaches and Sea we have recognised the growing trend of our clients who need to book...

South Beach is a combination of sparkling sunshine, a wide stretch of white sand beach, stylish Art Deco architecture, and some of the best people-watching in the world. Here, fashion models, South American heiresses, and movie stars mix with tourists from all over the United States and aboard.
