I’ve had a good old sniff around on the internet to see what I could find and I’ve asked my pals to help as well.  If you know of any other places that accept 4+ dogs please post details in the comments box below or email us over at

    We stayed at Ladyhole House, Yeldersley, Ashbourne with 4 greyhounds. Large enclosed garden, accommodation for 6-7 people. Ladyhole House Holidays.

  4. Bev says:

    Thank you so much for this, I have two dogs and I always think I have three seatbelts in the back of the car, maybe I could rescue another one. But then I think we might struggle with holidays as the ferries always come with me. So this is reassuring.

    We stayed in the cotswolds at The Old Coach house in Brimscombe near Stroud. Lady allows 2 dogs inside and I think 5 outside in the stables it’s like an outdoor kennel and run. Very clean and fully equipped. Enclosed garden with hot tub and swimming pool. Brilliant place quiet and secluded. We took our 5 dogs and they loved it..

  6. Pepper says:

    Thank you so much for this website. It is so difficult to find somewhere that take us 4 dogs with our human. No matter that we are old and retiring – I will always remind our human to look at the accommodation on here as they all look lovely and we really want to go visit

    These from my visitors’ books
    “Beautiful scenery. Lots of things to do. Shame we don’t own a dog as the place was so dog friendly.” Mr & Mrs E April 2016
    “ Have thoroughly enjoyed our week’s stay at your lovely cottage. The scenery is stunning and “charlie dog” loved running around in the field. Would most definitely return.” Mr & Mrs K. August 2017
