Best Western’s guide to pet-friendly holiday spots …
Holidaying in Britain by rail can really take the hassle out of travelling for you and your pet, as there are no pet passports or immunisation jabs needed and your favourite feline or pooch can sit alongside you on the train.
But, as some hotels don’t accept animal guests, it can be tricky to know where to go for a pet-friendly break. There’s no need to worry though, as Donna Wilkinson from Best Western Hotels – a hotel group with 109 pet-friendly properties in the UK – has shared her tips with us on where to take your pet on holiday. Just remember to check our journey planner for cheap tickets before you and your pet hop on board, holiday-bound …
Donna says: “Pets are much more than ‘man’s best friend’; they are an integral part of the family, so why not take the whole family on your next holiday?”
“Travelling with pets has become increasingly popular and demand is growing for pet-friendly hotel packages and facilities. As a nation of animal-lovers, more and more hotels in the UK are welcoming and catering for our four-legged friends.”
“So when you fancy a short break or a change of scene, forget the hassle of organising pet friendly certificates and passports, and consider what the UK has to offer.”
“Britain has some incredible landscapes to set the perfect backdrop for your enjoyable dog walks. Whether you fancy wandering along Cornish beaches or hiking over purple heather on a Scottish moor, there are numerous UK holiday destinations that welcome animals.”
“Why not try a trip to the Lake District, with its picturesque scenery and miles of footpaths to suit every walker. The pet-friendly Best Western Ambleside Salutation Hotel is in the heart of the English Lake District, just one mile from Lake Windermere. With charming local attractions waiting to be explored, this is the ideal location for those who want to live rural life to the full.”
“Or if you prefer seaside strolls, try the costal resorts of Cornwall or Devon. The family run Best Western Hotel Bristol in Newquay welcomes pets to their cliff-top hotel that overlooks the golden sands of Tolcarne beach. This relaxing retreat provides a great tour base, with Cornwall offering a number of beauty spots and attractions.”
“Alternatively, the tranquil surroundings of Best Western Studley Castle Hotel, set deep in the Warwickshire countryside, boasts a 28-acre estate – ideal for your furry companion. This stunning setting near Birmingham has plenty to entertain the kids too, with a host of nearby attractions including Cadbury’s World, West Midlands safari park and Warwick Castle.”
“So whether you prefer the countryside, beside the coast or in a national park, just pick up the lead and explore the best UK destinations with the entire family.”
