The Headland Hotel, Newquay
If you’re thinking of taking a weekend break, and can’t bear to leave your pup behind, why not take them with you? The gorgeous Headland Hotel in Newquay welcomes dogs, and they go as far as providing a snuggly dog blanket, a bowl, food and treats, at only £20 per night. It’s a great location too, with miles of fields and eight dog friendly beaches surrounding the hotel, so there’s plenty of places for you and your dog to explore.
Rhossili Bay Beach, Swansea
Voted the best beach in Britain, the 3rd best in Europe and the 9th best in the world by TripAdvisor, Rhossili Bay Beach is truly a treasure. Not only this, but The Times nominated it as the UK’s number 1 dog-friendly beach, so it’s really something that needs to go on your (and your dog’s) bucket list. The golden sand and blue waters stretch for 3 miles, and there’s plenty of things to see as you’re walking down – you might even witness some dolphins playing in the waves!
Fun with Dogs – Doggy Treasure Hunt, Locations Across the South
Why not trade in your usual walk with your pooch for an exciting Fun with Dogs Treasure Hunt? They take place throughout the year in many locations across the south. It works like this: your team can be made up of one or two dogs and as many people as you like. At the starting point you’re given a sheet of clues; your team must then follow the clues and complete simple challenges around the course. If you’re one of the first three teams home you win a prize, but all participating teams will receive a goodie bag for completing the hunt. It’s £15 per team on the day, and £10 if you book in advance.
