  1. Hicks Farm Holidays Joins

    Do you fancy a dog friendly self catering holiday in Powys, Shropshire or Herefordshire? If so take a look at Hicks Farm Holidays, the latest addition to our self catering holiday accommodation directory. Situated right on the England / Wales border you’ll find it in our Powys section but you should be able to walk the dogs into Shropshire and Herefordshire if you and your best friend are fairly fit. As well as great walks and beautiful countryside facilities at the farm will provide the family with entertainment including an indoor swimming pool and outdoor children’s play area. The dogs should enjoy their holiday too on this working farm – but if your canine pal is anything like Murphy and Lottie you will need to keep them away from the lambs and chickens!

    If you’d like inspiration for a dog inclusive day out take a look at the map on our dog friendly days out page for Wales. The paw marks show locations of possibilities along most of the Welsh borders (and Offa’s Dyke runs close by). Our Walks pages also give details of dog friendly walks we enjoyed with our Airedale Terriers. The English Midlands page has examples in Shropshire and the page for Wales includes a route we walked with Hamish from nearby Knighton (this was in 2002 so things may have changed a bit but hopefully the directions will still help you and your dogs find the way!)
