Pet friendly cabins

If you don’t want to leave your pet in kennels (and why would you?) the money you save on kennels can pay for a few extra days in a beautiful log cabin. There are plenty more advantages of pet-friendly log cabin holidays too. If you plan to go shopping or visit a theme park for the day, your pet will be cool, comfortable and secure in your lodge. That’s a big advantage over tents and caravans, which become far too hot to leave your dog behind safely.

Wherever you choose to stay, our dog-friendly log cabins are ready to welcome you, you family and your four-legged friends. So where will you visit first?
