For the dogs…
Woof! Hello, all dogs are welcome here with no limit on size, breed or number, and there are no extra charges for them joining you on your holiday; after all, it is their holiday too!
Everything about Holidays With My Dogs was created with dogs in mind, plus we want you, as their owners, to be able to relax in a haven that makes everyone feel at home. Our holidays are about the whole family.
All the photos on this page have been shared by our fabulous guests, showing their dogs having the holiday of their lives here.
Secure 8-acre fields
You can walk your dogs in our fields as often as you want during your stay…
We keep to pre-booked slots so that everyone can have the fields to themselves, which is appreciated by all the nervous dogs who holiday here and don’t want to share their space with other dogs. There is no charge for the use of the fields – they are purely for you, our guests.
Hare Cottage also has its own private and secure paddock, which adjoins the garden and secure private parking.
Sian is no longer able to offer training and behaviour sessions during your holiday, but Calum may be available for 1:1 or group workshops. You can contact him through Woof and Wood.
Let’s look at how our cottages were designed with our furry friends in mind…
The fridge freezer is full size, with plenty of room for raw food, and our local pet shop Isle of Pets will even deliver your food to the cottage. Dog towels for drying off muddy paws are included, plus throws for beds and sofa so your dogs can sleep anywhere.
If they want luxury as well, then luxury they shall have! There’s even a hot and cold dog shower in each cottage garden if they need a clean before coming inside or just to cool down. This is a luxury that even us humans would appreciate on a scorching hot day.
The flooring is non-slip vinyl – warm, cosy underfoot, and easy to clean. The 250sq ft gardens are laid with artificial grass and slate and fenced to over 2m.
There is also at least 6m between fences to the field and/or other cottages, so even the most nervous dogs should feel safe and secure in their private garden. All this has been designed following our own experience of having an anxious dog and the issues we have encountered over the years.
We knew the things we wanted from a holiday with our dogs, and that is what we have recreated. We are proud to say that we have returning customers who won’t go elsewhere because they just can’t find what we offer anywhere else. That speaks volumes.
Our doggy hampers contain water and food bowls, dog towels, biodegradable poo bags, dog tags for the holiday address, Pet Remedy spray, Simple Solution spray in case of accidents, vet wrap and soft ban for emergency first aid, head torch for night walks. The cottages also have cooling mats, large paddling pools, outdoor shaded dog bed areas; basically, everything you need and more…or so we hope!
There are spare bowls and raised dog feeders in the Laundry if you need them.
We provide up to six collar tags with our contact details on for your dogs to wear while on holiday.
We don’t routinely provide dog beds as we know from experience that most dogs prefer their own home comforts. However we always have spare beds, crates, a puppy pen, and a car ramp, to borrow if you need them. Just let us know when you book, and we will be happy to accommodate.
