Five Reasons Why Dog Friendly Pubs Make Pawsome Holiday Breaks

16.11.2021 06:29 pm

They are simply not on people ‘holiday radars’, whether you have a dog or not. As a dog owner you think about eating and drinking in a pub that will allow your ‘four-legged’ friend. You don’t think of a pub offering dog friendly rooms to stay!

You go away on a break with your dog to relax, get some exercise on walks, take in the scenery and enjoy some fine cuisine. A dog friendly pub with rooms is a bonus.

When you walk into a pub, you want to instantly feel welcome. A place to unwind, enjoy the beautiful surrounding, whether is it hill or coastal walking. Just you and your ‘four-legged friend’ breathe in the fresh air. Have a break from the stresses of everyday life.

Two or three nights can sometimes feel enough. However, if you want to go away for longer, you could even do a dog friendly ‘pub crawl’. Excuse the pun. That is why dog friendly pubs with accommodation are the perfect answer. Somewhere comfy with delicious food and walks to ‘burn off the calories’ in beautiful surroundings. What more could you want?

If you a sociable person, you know you will meet fellow dog owners either at the pub or on walks. Having a dog, people come up and talk to you.

Upon arrival at the pub, unlike a self-catering holiday, everything is done for you. You don’t have worry about shopping or work out how things work in the property. It is more like a ‘hotel’. Help is always at hand.

With dog friendly pubs, you are a ‘step ahead’ of the many, who are rushing to book pet friendly holiday lets. You are thinking ‘outside the box’; pubs are chic, welcoming and dotted all across the UK.
