At this time of year, I always get wistful for holidays :)

I'm looking at booking a week away for me, Jules and Archie - somewhere in the UK (not Scotland though as it's perhaps a little too far for 1 week as we will be driving?)

We went for a week away with Archie to a Hoeseason lodge just outside York and it was fab. So now we're looking to do something similar i.e. a self catering week in a cottage or lodge that takes pets. I've ordered a new Hoeseasons brochure and a Cottages 4 You one as well.

Where would you recommend looking as well?

Do you have any suggestions of places you've been to with your 'poos that you'd be happy to talk about?

Looking forward to getting your thoughts and suggestions :D

Sera, have a look at my FB page. There is a pink cottage on the right hand side which is where we are going this weekend. The beach near the house allows dogs all year and behind the cottage is a green area which is the start of a wooded cliff top walk. It is my favourite place! :) From the main bedroom window you can sit in bed with a cup of tea and watch the seagulls diving into the water! Heavenly!

If you want the details I will pm you. xx

We took Pixel to St Ives in November and it was lovely. It seemed quite geared up to dogs we were able to take them onto the beach (but not all year round) lots of the pubs and resturants allowed you to sit outside with dogs. There was a holiday cottage which allowed you to take dogs too.

My husband went to the boatshow yesterday. He came home with a leaflet on hiring camper vans! They have a dog space already built into them. He has this idea that trekking around the country with Deefer "staying in one place" would be a great idea! I have pointed out that as he can't sit still in the house a restricted environment might not be the best but worth considering if you fancy an adventure!

We are saving hard to buy a small motorhome next year (just a little bigger than a camper) as we both want to have freedom to pack up for a weekend with the dog and explore the world ... bit by bit!

Do you have a website for the camper van place on the leaflet?

Check out the Old Vicarage, Ambleside. We are booking for July. The take well behaved dogs at no extra cost. The manager showed us around it was lovely and right next to a park for that early morning wee wee visit.

oh my goodness, this place looks amazing!!! I have visions of us playing Swallows & Amazons (first attaching Archie firmly into a life jacket :D)

We have just booked a week in a gorgeous cottage in Bude, Cornwall. That area of Cornwall has the most am umber of dog friendly beaches in the UK apparently. I have out helpful sites for doggie holidays which tell you where you can eat with dogs etc...It was Doggie Pubs I think... I would lays recommend Cornwall. Look at Whalesbourough Farm in Bude for 5 star luxury cottages. Perfect!
