Quirky Dog Friendly Holidays Across The UK

Quirky Dog Friendly Holidays Across The UK

Are you and your pooch on the lookout for something different? We’ve put together a couple of our favourite Quirky Dog Friendly holidays from across the UK. From a converted bus in Scotland to a Thomas Dylan’s home in Wales. Where will you go next?

Forget Glamping, try a spot of Champing!

Across England/Scotland

First, there was camping, then there was glamping, and now, there’s Champing. Church camping is revolutionising the traditional camping break, giving you exclusive use of some of the UK’s greatest listed buildings for the most unforgettable sleepover of your life. These stunning churches are no longer used for regular worship and are cared for by The Churches Conservation Trust. Above all, you and your pooch can have your very own church for the evening!

Stay on a 5* boat with Beacon Park Day Boats

Wales, Powys

A real treat for our tail-wagging friends. Take a trip on a luxury, five-star boat along the Monmouthshire and Brecon Canal in the beautiful Brecon Beacons. They allow up to two dogs and are fully equipped with cosy bedrooms, shower rooms, central heating, and wood-burning stoves. Furthermore, dog towels are provided for those unexpected dog swims. The path along the canal is fantastic for walking and exploring.

The Blue House

Camber, England

Have you dreamed of living like a Californian? This modernist, four-bed, super-home on the beach is for you. You and your pup can literally roll out of bed and onto the beach. Dogs are allowed on the beach all year round. An extra fee of £25 for our doggos, but totally worth every single penny.

The Bus Stop

Gilford – Scotland

This converted bus offers a unique holiday experience with a touch of luxury. It’s set on a working farm with beautiful panoramic views of the Lammermuir Hills, in the stunning East Lothian countryside. This means that you and your pooch have plenty of walkies to look forward to. Also, the roof above the bed has been replaced with glass, allowing you and your pooch to sleep under the stars. They also have a private wood fired hot-tub on the decking – yes!

Sleep like Royalty at Plas Dinas Country House 

Wales, Gwynedd

Royalty may be so last week, but this stately home is one of our number one sports. What perfect way to treat your Prince or Princess than a holiday in the ancestral home of Lord Snowden and Princess Margaret. It’s filled with memorabilia of their time there and beautiful rooms including the Princess Margret Suite.

AirShip 002

Highlands, Scotland

We love this futuristic aluminium pod in the highlands. They boast stunning views across the Sound of Mull to the island of Tobermory. You and your pooch get four acres of pristine Scottish landscape to mess about in.

Go back in time to Dylan Thomas’ Birthplace


This month was international Dylan Thomas day (14th May), but did you know you and your pooch are welcome to visit the many places he grew up, drank a pint or wrote some poetry? One of our favourites is the Dylan Thomas house in Swansea. It’s pretty retro and you’ll get a themed holiday experience when you stay. Other doggy Dylan places include Browns Hotel and the Dylan Thomas Boathouse.

Magical 12th-Century Abbey


A former Augustine abbey that has been lovingly converted over the years to become a truly comfortable family house. It boasts vaulted ceilings, huge open fires, eight acres of parkland, and palatial bedrooms. Deep in the beautiful countryside of the Suffolk coast, it now makes the perfect oasis to relax and walk in the company of your favourite four legged friend.
