Looking for a relaxing place to escape for a holiday in 2023? With spring in the air, it's time to get browsing for staycations and check in to one of the UK's best dog-friendly Airbnbs.
We can't imagine leaving our four-legged friend behind when we go away, which is why a dog-friendly Airbnb is the answer to family holiday bliss.
Country Living's pick of the best dog-friendly Airbnbs around Britain allow both you and your dog to explore a new destination. With walks aplenty, sprawling grounds and local pubs nearby, there's lots to keep everyone entertained during a pet-friendly staycation at these dog-friendly Airbnbs.
Many of these dog-friendly Airbnbs offer space for your dog to run around or are located close to parks or beaches where you can go for long walks together.
Why choose a dog-friendly Airbnb over a hotel?
Unlike a dog-friendly hotel, a dog-friendly Airbnb allows you to book an entire property, providing more space for you and your pet. A stay at a pet-friendly Airbnb will give you more freedom to spend time with your dog in places they might be restricted to enter at a hotel. Having your own space could allow you to dine with them, relax by the fire together or give you the chance to enjoy a dip in the hot tub while they snooze in the sun nearby.
Some Airbnb hosts might have areas where dogs aren't allowed, such as in the bedrooms and on furniture, but you'll find many that provide the essentials, like dog bowls, furniture covers and designated towels to wipe muddy paws. There are also hosts that provide treats and toys for four-legged guests.
While many hotels charge extra for dogs to stay, you'll find that a number of dog-friendly Airbnbs welcome pets for free (check the House Rules or send a message to the host for extra costs). If you're booking an Airbnb with a shared space, you might find that there are other pets in the grounds too, which could be handy if your dog is sociable.
Where to book a dog-friendly Airbnb
Fortunately, there are dog-friendly Airbnbs all around the UK. Whether you're looking for dog-friendly places to stay in Cornwall, London or Norfolk, there's a rental for you. If you're visiting the area for the first time, your host might have maps to show you where to go out and places to take your dog for walks.
There are also all types of Airbnbs for a dog-friendly break, including city apartments, detached cottages in the country, coastal pads and riverside boltholes. Wherever you're looking to travel with your dog in the UK and whatever your holiday style, our pick of pet-friendly Airbnbs are worth checking out.
