Dog-friendly cottages on the Isle of Wight

With its iconic white chalk cliffs, golden sandy beaches, and miles of walking trails, the Isle of Wight offers a perfect location for holiday with your dog. Stay at one of our dog-friendly cottages on the Isle of Wight and you'll be ideally placed to explore all the island has to offer.

Fancy a swim in the sea? You’ll find dog-friendly beaches on all sides of the islands from Watcombe Bay to St Helens Duver.

Looking for somewhere to run and play? Mottistone Gardens and Estate is the perfect place for a game of fetch. And after all that exercise, retreat back to your pet-friendly cottage to relax in the garden or sleep in front of the fire.
