Dog-friendly cottages in Wales

We have dog-friendly holiday cottages all over Wales, so whatever type of break you’re planning there’s a perfect place for you and your canine companions.

Pack some welsh cakes, and maybe some dog biscuits, and scale the peaks at one of the National Parks. With one fifth of the Welsh coastline under our care, how about some walkies along the miles of footpaths or dog-friendly beaches?

Wherever your holiday takes you, a stay with us helps look after the places in our care, so there’s even more reason to plan a visit.

Exterior view of Treledydd Fawr Cottage

Treleddyd Fawr Cottage, Pembrokeshire 

This traditional Pembrokeshire cottage has been carefully restored by our conservation team, keeping many of its original features. Parts of the farm date back to the mid 16th century, so the whole place is steeped in history. Your dog might not appreciate the work that’s gone into preserving the cottage, but the woodburner and coast path will surely be a hit.

Quay Cottage 1, Pembroke 

One of a pair, Quay Cottage 1 makes an ideal base for exploring Stackpole. The stretch of coastline that we protect is full of walking trails and stick-chasing opportunities. Take a stroll to Barafundle Bay and enjoy the white sands, where dogs are allowed to play throughout the year.

Pant Rhiw Cottage, Pwllheli 

This secluded cottage offers the ultimate getaway. Perched on a hillside, within the grounds of the Plas-yn-Rhiw estate, you’ll enjoy uninterrupted views of Hell’s Mouth Bay. If you want a closer look the beach itself is a short drive, and with four miles of dog-friendly sand it’s definitely worth the trip.

Chirk Home Farm Cottage, Wrexham 

Spend your next holiday in the grounds of 700-year-old Chirk Castle.

Beyond the boundary walls lies the Ceirog Valley and famous Offa’s Dyke, so there’s plenty to keep you busy.

Caerllan, Ceredigion  

As far as dog-friendly destinations go, you’ll struggle to find one that beats Caerllan.

The beach is home to grey seals so there’s even more reason to visit.

Exterior of Bryn Llywelyn, Anglesey

Bryn Llywelyn, Anglesey  

Anglesey Island has so much to discover, you’ll never get tired of exploring the unspoilt coastline and rich heritage.

Penparc, Carmarthenshire  

Penparc stands on the very edge of Dinefwr Park and is surrounded by lush, green countryside. If the park doesn’t leave you panting then the Brecon Beacons are closeby, or a little further afield there are numerous dog-friendly beaches on the Gower Peninsular. The cottage itself boasts its own large garden, so there’s plenty of room to stretch those legs.
