Many of us have started to think about holidays for next year. Going on holiday doesn't mean having to travel abroad, there are many benefits to holidaying in the UK. Going on holiday also doesn’t mean that your four-legged friends need to be left behind.
Dog friendly Staycations are the perfect way to escape the everyday and go on new adventures. From countryside getaways to city breaks, we’ve picked out some of our favourite UK dog friendly staycations:
