Dog Friendly Breaks

We understand that your dog is part of the family, so here at Michael Paul Holidays we offer a wide range of dog-friendly holiday cottages where you needn’t leave your furry friend behind.

Our pet-friendly properties are set in some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK, so remember to pack a leash as you won’t want to miss out on the spectacular walks to be had (and neither will your dog)! Whether you’re looking for a contemporary holiday lodge, a stylish villa, or a traditional holiday cottage, Michael Paul Holidays can cater for both you and your pet.

All of our pet guests are made extremely welcome upon arrival. Our Yorkshire Dales resort offers a ‘puppy hamper’ containing items such as gravy biscuits, a squeaky toy, a frisbee and a towel, and there's a resort in Cornwall which even has an on-site dog groomer! So if you’re looking to take the whole family away this year, then have a browse below for some of the highest quality pet-friendly accommodation available.
