I'm sorry, but with the complete lack of punctuation I am struggling to understand your question or all of what you've written. unsure.gif

Would be good to mention where, but if you google holidays with dogs, or cottages with dogsn there are bound to be a few coming up.

Sykes is a company that has cottages all over ,and you can set your search to be with dogs, the amount of dogs etc

ps I am amazed you found somewhere , where you are allowed to let your dog offlead with other animals??!!

If your on facebook try here

https://www.facebook.com/groups/dogfriendlyholidays/

You can put up a request for what you want, where , when and for how long.

Or click on photos and then albums and you can browse the accommodation available under various categories.

Check out their 'dog rules' as it varies- some have no restrictions others say not in bedrooms, not on furniture etc. Some charge for dogs , some don't.

We went to Little Dumpledale last year for the first time and enjoyed it so much we've booked again for this year. The place is truly dog friendly, they even put throws over the furniture so your dog can get up with you.

We've found Sykes Cottages a really good starting point too.

We've also found that contacting owners via the Sykes site to ask more specific questions is usually met with a very friendly response (many cottages specify 1 dog, but quite often, we've managed to persuade them to let us take 2 lol.gif )

The only place we've been disappointed with is the last cottage we booked, because the 'enclosed yard' was the size of a pocket handkerchief (amazing how big you could make it look on a photo) and the front door opened right out onto a road that none of the literature mentioned was a 'rat run' with no pavement! Although there were a lot of lovely walks a short car-ride away, our evening stroll before bedtime was a bit of a pain.

Good luck smile.gif

We ended up in Norfolk, large enough garden, fenced in, and beach 10min walk away. We brought throws and fleeces to chuck over the furniture and best to bring your own bedding, so I didnt worry about the dogs being on the beds. It was great! the advert said 3 well behaved dogs, I did ask Sykes do they specify breeds, as I have 3 rottweilers, but there was no mention of breeds, just as long as they are well behaved smile.gif My lot are no trouble, and we never had any issues or trouble, I will do it again, it was great!!!

The cottage we ended up in, is called Skylark, if you wanted to have a look

I wasn't trying to have a go at you, and I apologise if it came across that way. It's just that with no punctuation at all I found it hard to understand.

We've also been to Little Dumpledale several times, and can recommend it. They do get booked up quickly though.

I have also used Welcome Cottages a couple of times http://www.welcomecottages.com/promotions/pet-friendly

This company supports Many Tears Rescue but I've not stayed in any of their cottages http://www.graceholidaycottages.co.uk/

We went to Primrose Cottage at Ottery St Mary in Devon via Skykes Cottages and it was excellent. We had a good-sized (just under half an acre) private fenced field just for our use, and the nearby lake and surrounds were only used by fellow holiday-makers staying in one of the six cottages, so it suited us perfectly.

It was great for diabled access too.

East Ruston Cottages are fantastic, I think Little Dumpledale is like Marmite, you either love it , or hate it.......I've only been there once .........

Have you a county in mind? We go away a lot, 3/4 times a year with two dogs sio can recommend loads of places. Just depends on where you want to go and what you want to pay?

Www.welcome cottages.com and www.cottage guide.co.UK are good.
Hoseasons ok but charge for dogs, Alistair sawdays special places are good, also Airbnb if you put in whole house. I can recommend a few places, Blackadder mains in Northumberland, big detached house, secure garden plus 5 acre field( not fully enclose) www.Blackadder.co.UK, hobby cottage in Norfolk, detached house, but not enclosed garden, lovely house though, we're going for third time in June www.raggatt.org.uk/HobbyCottage.HTML
And http://www.hoseasons.co.uk/cottages/hidden...en-cottage-bi61
Lovely detached lodge, hot tub, totally secure 1 acre garden not far from skegness, very private. If you like this one pm me and I'll send you owners details, you get a hefty discount.
