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.
