The booking via Sykes was very 'user-friendly', done very easily by helpful and friendly staff, and follow up emails quick and efficient.

If you're a dog owner and can't bear the thought of being apart from your four-legged friend, our pet friendly cottages in Dorset really take some beating, scattered about one of Britain's most dog friendly counties. There's even a website called 'Dorset Dogs' - a great place to check out local 'doggy' events.
Yomp along the Jurassic Coast, a rugged sweep of ancient rocks linking Dorset and East Devon. As England's first natural World Heritage Site, it sits alongside the likes of the Grand Canyon and Great Barrier Reef but is right here on home soil, with cliff-top trails and sweeping scoops of sands for 'Scamp' to bound with endless energy.
Or roam the chalky downlands and wooded valleys, crisscrossed with an almost endless supply of way-marked paths, bridleways and rural lanes. You'll find rivers for cooling doggy paddles and plenty of dog friendly pubs offering water bowls and treats, as well as food and drinks for us two-legged creatures.
There are lots of attractions too that warmly welcome pets, from historic castles and museums to daytrips on steam trains.
A number of charity dog shows and family fun days. 'Paws in the Park' sponsored walk. Pet picnics on Studland Beach. Dogs Derby. And the annual Dorset Dogs Festival, a gathering of pets and their owners celebrating dogs and the countryside through fun, agility and obedience, special 'doggy' stalls and fun family activities.
For epic coastal scenery, countryside romps and special doggy events, a pet friendly property in Dorset ticks every box! Please find below pet and dog friendly holiday cottages in Dorset.
