Pet friendly coastal cottages - Yorkshire

Rent a pet friendly cottage near the seaside

enjoy a Yorkshire seaside break in pet friendly coastal cottages in YorkshireAs far as seaside holidays are concerned, Yorkshire has one of the best coastlines in the country. From large town with lots of amenities to sleepy fishing villages, families will find a choice of dog friendly accommodation. Many cottage owners welcome one, or in some cases, more than one dog in coastal resorts.

The terrific thing about this area is the access to beaches and moors. On moorland, especially on National Park land, note any restrictions on dogs with regard to when they should be on the lead and when they aren’t allowed in certain areas. Yorkshire beaches are mostly dog-friendly, but check with the local authorities or on official websites on the local bylaws and very latest information governing dogs on beaches. Some areas of the Yorkshire beaches may be restricted and different rules sometimes apply at certain times of the year. Long walks with your dog will make your holiday special, and you can download dog walking maps for suitable routes. Check online for dog friendly pubs and cafes in the area, so you can both recover when your walk finishes!


The main beaches have a dog ban from the 1st of May until the end of September, there are however, a number of beaches where dogs are permitted all year round.
