Dog-friendly holidays by the experts
Paws & Stay is a UK dog-friendly travel website created by animal lovers who understand the frustration of “dog-tolerant” accommodation and the joy of a truly dog-friendly place to stay. There’s no need to go scanning all the information about our places to see if it’s ok to bring your dog. It is. In fact, it’s more than ok, it’s welcomed and celebrated. That’s why they’re part of Paws & Stay. In our collection, you’ll find dog-friendly cottages in both town and countryside locations, remote dog-friendly cottages in rural areas for nervous or reactive dogs, dog-friendly cabins for a cosy weekend getaway, and also luxury dog-friendly holidays for those special occasions, where your four-legged friend can come along too.
We look for places that go above and beyond for your dog, like places with an enclosed garden or an outdoor tap for muddy paws as well as owners that will welcome them with a treat or two and a scratch behind the ear. Our places are also pretty special for humans too, you’ll find things like hot tubs and outdoor baths, BBQs and firepits, and sweeping views from a private deck.
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. Whether you’re in Cornwall or Herefordshire, 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 Lake District to the heart of Devon and everywhere in between.
