Dog and Pet Friendly Large Cottages to Rent

It is not very nice leaving a dog behind in kennels when you go on vacation and it is the same as leaving a member of the family behind. Even if you are going to stay with a group of friends in a large cottage or house or even a castle what better than being able to take the dogs along with you on holiday, even at Christmas or New Year and sure that your animals will be welcomed on your arrival. A large self-catering holiday cottage or propety where your dog is free to roam could be the answer to all your problems and really make a difference to your break. Here at Big Cottages we have put together a list of cottages that are pet and dog friendly. All of the properties that you will find when you click through below accept dogs but it is always advisable to let the owners know when booking and to ask how many animals they are prepared to accept. Sometimes it is worth asking property owners directly whether they accept dogs - even if they don't advertise the fact as some cottages will accept dogs that are well behaved and not too big!
