find out about dogs welcome cottage for holidays in north YorkshireThroughout North Yorkshire, more and more holiday cottage owners, are hanging out the dogs welcome sign, as they recognise the importance, to us, of our four legged buddies holidaying alongside us, and how the varied terrain of their beautiful county, can deliver doggie (and human) walks that are such fun.

Rest assured, that whatever the style, size or location of the cottage you select, it will be comfortable, have all mod cons and fit the title of a home from home.

Runswick Bay north YorkshireNorth Yorkshire is particularly fortunate in having two wonderful national parks: North York Moors, with 1,400 miles of paths and tracks, and Yorkshire Dales that has 900 miles of footpaths. Between them they offer walks along moorlands, through woodlands, up and down hills, across fields and meadows and alongside rivers and streams. While North York Moors National Park's steam railway can deliver you and your doggie friend to seaside town Whitby, where he (or she) can run free and show off his (or her) best doggie paddle, at one of the resort's two fine sandy, dog friendly beaches: Runswick Bay and Robin Hood Bay.

If you find yourselves passing through spa town Harrogate, on your way to the delights of the Yorkshire Dales National Park, treat your doggie to a good run in the lovely 200 acre grasslands, The Stray.

Just because you're travelling with a canine friend doesn't mean that North Yorkshire's grand estates are off the itinerary. Quite the opposite. The lovely folk at the National Trust's Fountains Abbey and Studley Royal Water Garden, near Ripon even have water bowls at the ready, at the visitors centre, mill and church, just in case, your four legged friend should get a little thirsty while visiting. Over in York, the 120 acres of Castle Howard's Arboretum: trees from around the world, is a veritable doggie paradise with its woodland paths, handy shady trees and doggie water available at the café.

Back at your home from home, you will find that most cottages, have an enclosed garden or area where your four legged pal can safely run around, while you enjoy a rejuvenating tipple, and relax overstretched muscles, on the patio. Look to those mines of local information, the cottage owners, for advice as to the best run-free and on-lead areas, close to your cottage.

Regardless of the season you chose to visit, you and your four legged friend, will receive a warm welcome at at each of North Yorkshire's dog friendly cottages.
