"The perfect place to hold our celebration"

Dog-friendly holidays

Bring all the family

We have a fantastic selection of dog-friendly cottages and contemporary homes where you can holiday in style, knowing your pet will be welcome when you arrive. Our pet-friendly holidays are perfect for the adventurous pup with endless trails through woodlands where they're free to roam, collect sticks and find muddy puddles. We also have a doggy swimming pond, Pooch's Place, where your four-legged friends can enjoy roaming free and making a splash; part of our latest nature trail, Knighton Reserve. 


We like to pamper pooches, so they're welcome at the Hurricane Terrace and can enjoy free treats at the bar. We are also a short drive from the most beautiful dog-friendly beaches in Dorset, perfect for a paddle with your pooch.
