The popularity of a 'staycation' is growing so many more people are choosing to stay in the UK for their holiday or short break away and we don't blame them! One reason for a move away from a week holiday abroad to several shorter UK breaks is travel time. No waiting around for a delayed plane in a boring foreign airport, you can travel to your UK holiday cottage whenever you want.

Another reason is the growing trend for taking your family dogs away with you! We can not think of anything better here at Group Stays which is why we have a wide variety of properties that welcome dogs to choose from. Each perfectly catering for your canine companion!

Here are just a few for you. Dont forget you can contact the owners of the properties to find out more or to book your next self catering break by clicking on the links.
