Yep i agree its a real struggle to take 3 dogs anywhere but we have been lucky so far and always found somewhere in the end its one of the reasons i started this topic



The last 3 cottages we have been to all stated that they would only take 2 dogs but when I phoned they were very willing to take our 3. All the cottages were owned by individuals rather than large organisations. It's worth contacting owners and asking. ;)

we go to anglesey every year,have done since i was a baby!! very dog friendly,we always have had a static caravan on beach but unfortunatly the lady who owned it had a stroke and the caravan is no more :( so we had the task of finding somewhere to take 4 dogs!! most state one or two small dogs,the ones that would take more dogs are booked again as people leave for following year so ther was no chance!!! by luck i found one in the village we normally stay who just said 'well behaved dogs welcome'didnt stipulate any number just as long as every trace of dog was removed before leaving and charged an extra £10 for the dogs and didnt ask how many!!! 2 bed detached bungalow couple of minutes stroll to beach looks lovely,will let you no what it was like when we have been in august. we are seriously thinking of investing in a touring caravan although some sites also have a limit on dog numbers :( :(

We have recently returned from a Caravan Club camping site in the lake district.
www.caravanclub.co.uk/car...aspx?csid=21926
It is totally dog friendly and has lots of woodland walks beside the lake.
We took our 6 dogs and they thoroughly enjoyed themselves. We will be going back again soon!

Re:Dog friendly locations 7 years 5 months ago #27197

I am going to bang the drum for Trefriw, in the Conwy Valley, between Conwy and Betws-y-Coed [the name, of which rhymes with let us avoid!] Look up www.trefriwtrails.org to get a sample of the range of walks around here and if you want dog friendly accommodation, I do provide; check www.hafod-house.co.uk. We have open fields, woodland, moorland, rivers, lakes and really serious mountain walking all around the village. Sadly, I am a little limited by the greyhound, who cannot cope with styles and will not go anywhere, where he has heard gun shots. Nevertheless, we walk miles and miles and to compare the abilities and tempraments of a racing greyhound and a deerhound, bred for work, is a never ending source of pleasure. Isla, the deerhound, is in another league and I am not alone I saying that she is the most extraordinarily, human centric dog I have ever come accross.
If anyone wants to start a topic on that subject, I can supply an amazing story.
Steve, due to a change of computer, I have lost your e-mail address; please get in touch.

I can certainly vouch for the lovely walks in this area as a regular visitor. Don't forget the good beach walks especially on Anglesey, not far away.

My brother lives just down the road at T'yn-y -Groes, you may even have met them on dog walks. They have a lab and a curly coat retriever. He and my sister-in-law have never mentioned a local deerhound but I would like to meet Isla especially as one of my DHs is also called Isla. I live on the west coast of Scotland with DHs Isla and my youngster Morag.

Well worth a trip Houndy

Sorry just noticed this one ...

Caravan is a 2 berth , but it slightly longer than a normal one as it has a little changing room at one end with storage on one side and at the toilet/shower bit on the other.

It's a SWIFT CHALLENGER SE 470 which is about 6m long. we bought is 2nd hand and it came with a full length awning, which is great , but Mand goes to lots of flyball shows on her own with it, and it's just too big to manage on your own so we got a smaller one which is great also. This is the small one : www.awnings.co.uk/scripts...p?idproduct=306
It's not really big enough to sit in with the dogs, but then we take the big awning if we have all the dogs with us. The dogs sleep in the van at night in their own individual cages.

In North Wales at Pen Y Pass, which is the start for two of the paths up Snowdon (Highest Mountain in England and Wales), there is a cafe....www.facebook.com/pages/Pe...03232811?ref=ts or www.facebook.com/pages/Pe...03232811?ref=ts
It is very dog friendly. I know this because I work there. It's a big space with a slate floor so nothing to spoil. We don't mind wet and muddy people or their hounds! Happy to provide water bowls and maybe even the odd sausage!
Oh and its quite a good cafe too :)

As far as I'm aware there are a few pubs around here that are fine with hounds (lost my collie a while ago and am currently considering adopting a deerhoundish thing :)).....The Pen Y Gwryd, just down from Pen Y Pass on the junction of roads between Llanberis, Capel Curig and Beddgelert; The Bryn Tyrch in Capel Curig and the Fricsan on the Llanberis Caernarfon road - this also has a dog friendly policy - as long as ALL mess in cleared up.....www.thesnowdoninn.co.uk/

I know of at least one basic B+B which will be dog friendly and there are some pretty laid back campsites around here too.
May have to be careful about sheep on the more basic mountain sites. Some of the posher places do charge but at least they will take dogs.

Hope you enjoy the place if you do come to stay!

We have just booked a weeks holiday for next October in a cottage near Torridon on the West coast of Scotland. They will take our 3 hounds. But even better the lady who owns the cottage and another one in Dorset fosters dogs for the Many Tears Animal Rescue. AND 10% of the rent for the holiday goes to the charity.

www.gracecottages.co.uk

What could be better, beautiful scenery, dog friendly cottage, and a contribution to this wonderful charity.
