4 Reasons to take your family (and your dog) to Dorset

Dorset is one of the most family friendly holiday locations in the UK, which means that pets are welcome too. Why leave your dog behind when there are plenty of memories to be made together? There’s so much to explore for humans as well.

1.      Dog friendly holiday cottages

The Purbeck peninsula was made for dogs. Whether your dog is a leaping greyhound or a more of an easy-going Bassett, the landscape at Purbeck creates wonderful opportunities for fun and exploration with your pet. When it’s time to turn in for the day, there are pet friendly cottages available so you can relax in the knowledge that you and your pet are perfectly welcome.

2.      Take a Jurassic cruise from Exmouth

See the famous coastline by boat and be amazed at the scale of the ancient rocks and bays. The area is the only UNESCO National Heritage site in England and once you’re on the boat you will understand why. Onboard you can enjoy a cream tea with your family and friends. Some cruise operators will stop in fishing villages so you can get off and explore.

3.      Go llama trekking

For the truly adventurous, there is no finer way to travel. You can learn how to handle and care for these unusual animals in what must be one of the most unique animal experiences in the UK. The handlers can accommodate for all ages and fitness levels.

4.      Corfe castle ruins

The ruins at Corfe are the result of 1,000 years of history, shaped by the English Civil War. The ruins look out over Purbeck and are a favourite attraction in the area. History enthusiasts can pose with helmets, shields and swords. Conservation is an ongoing project around the castle and there’s plenty of wildlife living with the castle ruins, from the ravens to rare species of butterfly.

Your whole family will never forget the fantastic outdoor experience on offer in Dorset, or the great accommodation in Purbeck. Best of all, you won’t have to worry about finding a kennel or a generous neighbour to look after your dog while you’re away.
