Apex Vets’ summer dog holiday recommendations

June 21, 2021

The UK is full of dog friendly holiday parks and destinations that your whole family can enjoy. However, with a huge increase in tourists expected to land in popular UK hotspots this summer instead of going abroad, it could be time to head somewhere a little different.

Apex Vets’ Winchester Avenue team has come up with their 5 best holiday destinations to go with dogs in summer 2021, that aren’t in Cornwall or Devon.

Right on the tip of North Wales, Anglesey is a real treat. You and your pup will have over 125 miles of coastal paths to explore. Set your dog’s senses alight with walks through fishing villages, woodlands, over cliff tops, and head down to the many dog friendly beaches. Here are even more things to do in Anglesey with your dog: Dog Friendly Anglesey

2. Dog Friendly Northumberland

The northeast coast has it all – stunning scenery, long stretches of golden beaches, and an abundance of unique walking trails. You and your dog will be spoilt for choice.

The Peak District has so much to offer, including over 100 dog friendly pubs with refreshing drinks and hearty meals for after your adventures. Visit the Peak District National Park with your dog for a fantastic choice of walks. There’s the Monsal Trail between Chee Dale and Bakewell, and the challenging Kinder Scout, with Mermaid’s Pool and Pym’s Chair along the way. Check out these Dog Friendly Pubs in the Peak District

4. Dog Friendly Galloway & Dumfries

Southern Scotland is a beautiful yet often overlooked destination to take your dog on holiday. Choose from acres of forest, sandy beaches, river walks, and plenty of castles to explore. Dumfries & Galloway is an ideal place to stay, as it gives easy access to the surrounding areas. Read this guide on top things to do in Dog Friendly Dumfries & Galloway

5. Dog Friendly Brecon Beacons

This might not seem like your typical summer holiday destination, but the Brecon Beacons National Park is a hidden gem with so many dog friendly attractions and walks. Plus, it’s the perfect base to explore the Welsh countryside and places like Rhossili Bay on the south coast. There’s lots of dog friendly accommodation in the Brecon Beacons too. For something extra special, our team suggests looking at Sugar & Loaf Cottages
