Take a sniff around the neighbourhood

Off lead walks from the door? A dog-friendly pub nearby with no need to get in the car? Sounds great! Check out our ‘In the neighbourhood’ sections on each place, to find out all the stuff your dog will enjoy (and we think you’ll probably quite like it too).

Dog-friendly holidays with Paws & Stay

What makes a holiday dog-friendly?

We think a great dog-friendly holiday needs a good bit of outdoor space to explore and a great indoor space to relax in. That’s why places on Paws & Stay (although we do love a city pub with a dog menu) will tend to be in the countryside. We put a lot of stock in being able to walk right from your door and having a garden where it’s safe for your dog to be off the lead. You should feel free, either to roam or be at home.

How do you know somewhere is a perfect Paws & Stay place?

We know a Paws & Stay place when we inspect it and love it. Every single place on Paws & Stay has been checked out by one of our team of dog-friendly accommodation experts personally. We like to visit and get a feel for a place, so we can represent it to you accurately and honestly.

What will I find at my Paws & Stay place?

We don’t make sure all our places are the same. Quite the opposite. We choose our places for character and individuality, celebrating their differences. You’ll find quality and comfort, but in a huge range of styles and settings. We’re as excited by a wonky, rustic cottage as we are by a beautifully-designed Scandi eco home. As long as it’s got a bit of personality and warmly welcomes your dogs and you, it’s a Paws & Stay.

Where can I go with Paws & Stay?

Linguistic oddity aside, that’s a good question. We choose our places carefully to make sure we only work with the truly dog-friendly ones that have a touch of magic about them for humans too. We’re adding great discoveries to our dog-friendly collection all the time and soon we’ll be bringing you dog-friendly holidays from the Scottish Highlands, to the tip of Cornwall and everywhere in between.
