  1. Christmas and New Year breaks including some quiet locations (no fireworks)

    The festive season is nearly with us. You maybe planning a lovely Christmas or New Year at home. However if you thinking about going away with your dog(s) then we have a few  suggestions about dog friendly places to stay including some quiet places that should be firework free*.

    If you fancy a cosy cottage or something larger for a group then take a look at the dog friendly properties with Cottages.com around the UK, Ireland, France, Italy or Isle of Man. Below are example searches for Christmas and New Year breaks. Click on the links to see the results or refine the criteria to suit your own requirements.

    * In a previous dog blog article posted in October 2017 we told you about some of our customers who offer dog friendly accommodation where fireworks are not permitted.  You can read the full article via the link above but to save you time I have checked their websites today for latest availability (at 13/11/2018) which I’ve shared below. If you are looking for firework free then I suggest you follow this up as soon as possible by phoning or emailing the accommodation provider.
