Luxury Dog Friendly Cottages For group getaways


Do you want to leave the dog behind when you head off for a holiday? If the answer is a resounding ‘No!’ we hear you. We have a great selection of large, luxury, dog-friendly holiday accommodation and we fully get that the dog is part of the deal.

Our cottages, farmhouses and manor houses offer all the comfort you would expect from us, along with many thoughtful touches to make the dog feel at home, from walks on your doorstep to dog beds, towels and treats.

Whatever your reason for getting away, whether it’s a party weekend, a relaxing reunion of old friends, or a few days of head-clearing hill walking with the dog, we have just the place. Our houses are specially curated for large groups and many have features such as tennis courts, games rooms and swimming pools – for you that is, not the dog!

With a choice of properties across the UK, you can stay in your favourite location, confident that there is a welcome for your four-legged friend (or friends). If you want a country idyll with new sights and sounds for the dog, like Woodleaves House in Dorset, a nearby beach where they can frolic in the sea, like the one overlooked by Barford Beach House in Cornwall, or a house with a sunlit terrace where your old faithful can happily snooze, like Dovebridge House in Suffolk, we can help you to find your ideal property.

Popular dog friendly holiday destinations

Where would you like to stay? We have an amazing choice of dog-friendly cottages and houses in locations all across mainland UK, from Norfolk and Suffolk to the West Country, and from Yorkshire to Dorset. We have cottages and estates in the Cotswolds and the Lake District, as well as Welsh country manors and Scottish lodges.

What makes a dog-Friendly holiday home?

What makes the ultimate dog-friendly holiday home? Let’s take this from your pooch’s point of view. Inside, they want somewhere cosy for their bed, perhaps near the aga in the kitchen and they might choose deep windows so they can keep an eye on the squirrels. Outside, they want space to explore, maybe an orchard or a wood and certainly somewhere for walks with lots to sniff out. They want their humans to be happy too, of course, so a hot tub, swimming pool or cinema room would fit that bill.

We have all these options and more and we’re happy to have a chat to help you choose your perfect dog-friendly cottage or country house. Our doggy details vary from home to home, so check each property or give us a call to ask any questions. In the meantime, here’s some inspiration.

Call the pet-friendly big house specialists

We love dogs here at Big House Experience; Liz has two pugs, and Hannah has a Dachshund so we know what’s important to you and your dog. We certainly don’t see why you should leave them behind when you are going on a UK break, particularly as so many of our properties have acres of outdoor space. If you are wondering which house is the best for you - perhaps you have more than one dog or you want to know what walks are nearby - call us on 01242 383 717 and we’ll help you plan your dog-friendly group getaway.
