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 our Derbyshire Dales resort even lets you bring your own horse! 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.

Llyn Peninsula

Selected properties at our Llyn Peninsula cottages in Wales are dog-friendly — just look for the pet friendly sign in the amenity bar to double-check. Nefyn Bay will be just on your doorstep, and with no dog restrictions, your pooch will love a regular run on the beach. With plenty of opportunity for frisbee games, chasing the waves and doggy-paddling, you’re sure to have one happy puppy on your hands!


Yorkshire Dales

As well as offering the aforementioned puppy hamper, the Yorkshire Dales has much to offer your canine companion in terms of miles upon miles of countryside to explore. In Richmond, the closest town to the Yorkshire Dales eco-lodges, there are plenty of local pubs which allow dogs, such as the Hollie Hill Inn, the Castle Tavern, the George and Dragon, and the King's Head.


John O'Groats

John O’Groats is a secluded region, so it’s great to bring along your best friend to keep you company. Our wonderful lodges near the beach are ideally situated for your pedigree partner, with plenty of opportunity for running, walking, digging and howling into the wind!


Derbyshire Dales 

Our lodges in the Derbyshire Dales are a great option if you’re bringing your pet along. There is an outdoor tap for washing muddy paws and facilities for washing dog towels and bedding, as well as doggie waste bags and bins. On request, your hosts can also provide furniture throws, a spare lead, food and water bowls and a dog bed.


Oakwood Lodges 

With a bluebell forest and 20 acres of countryside to explore, you’re likely to be worn out by the time your hound has properly investigated the surrounding area. Dogs are mostly welcome in the many local pubs, and you’re allowed up to 3 of them per lodge.
