Dog Friendly Holiday Properties

At Group Stays we don't want you going off on your large group holiday feeling sad because you've had to leave the family pooch behind in kennels, and that's why we've made sure that several of our holiday homes are dog friendly. You see, we know how important that is, because we're dog lovers ourselves and our mutts tend to come everywhere with us. So take a look at our properties and soon you'll be looking forward to the best big family holiday ever, woofer included; we've got fabulous barn conversions, rambling old farmhouses, luxury timber-clad lodges, glorious country houses, big cottages, and even a beautiful chateau in France.

The good thing is that most of our big holiday houses are tucked away in the countryside, surrounded by acres of wide open fields, gently rolling hills interspersed with shady woodlands and pretty villages, and of course, plenty of places to go for a walk. You can wander for miles on a network of little footpaths or along the winding lanes, and the chances are that sooner or later you'll come across a cosy country pub where dogs are welcome. Because a lot of our large group self catering accommodation is in Devon and Somerset, it means that the coast is within easy reach, and you'll find some wonderful dog friendly beaches, from wide golden stretches of sand to quiet shingle and wild, windswept bays. Have a day out, go home and play in the garden, give him a treat from the barbecue; it'll be perfect, and we bet that tail just won't stop wagging, so let's show you what we've got:
