About Dog Friendly Cottage Holidays

We love dogs and we’re sure you do too – otherwise you wouldn’t be needing a dog friendly cottage!

We also have our own dog friendly self catering holiday cottages in Northumberland, and we happily allow pets to stay with their owners.  But we have not always found such a warm welcome for our pets when we have booked other cottages for our own holidays.

In late 2013 we created The Cottage Cooperative, which has a number of websites like this one to help guests find the exact type of cottage they want.  Cottages listed on our websites are owned by like-minded members who abide by a genuine code of advertising standards and are committed to offering a high quality service to guests.

For this reason there will never be hundreds of cottages on this website, but as our members have to agree to our standards before advertising, you should enjoy more peace of mind when booking.  We may well not yet have a cottage of the size you require in the area you require, but please check back as membership is growing slowly but surely.

All of the cottages in the dog friendly cottage holidays collection are owned by members of The Cottage Co-operative, and are listed on this website not only because they have the facilities required when bringing your pet on holiday, but also on the understanding that each member provides a warm welcome for pets too – after all they are part of the family.

Happy holidays!
