Pet Friendly Cottages

Kent is one of England's best regions for pet friendly cottages featuring everything from spacious pet friendly barn conversions with a choice of walks direct from your door to holiday lodges with enclosed gardens and a great location in the heart of walking country. Dogs stay free in most of Kent's dog friendly cottages or for a small additional charge.

Stay in a village cottage in the Weald or Downs just a short walk from the local dog friendly inn or base yourself in a cosy coastal cottage for two plus one pooch. Just minutes from Canterbury you're in the Kent Downs where you'll find an excellent choice of pet friendly cottages available only a short bus ride from the city centre. From pet friendly holiday barns to iconic oast houses welcoming dogs, Kent is a real dog lover’s paradise with spectacular coast and country scenery never far away from amenities and a great dog friendly inn.

Kent Walking Holidays with Dogs

Follow your lead directly to Kent and beautiful inland and coastal dog walking territory. Head off along the North Downs Way through the heart of the Kent Downs or along one of the many coastal cliff top paths from the White Cliffs Path on Kent’s Heritage Coast to the Reculver Cliffs Walk. The beautiful Viking Coastal Trail offers spectacular coastal walks with dogs and winds all the way around the Thanet coast for 32 miles taking in Margate, Broadstairs and Ramsgate en-route.

A firm favourite with holidaymakers on four legs, Kent’s High Weald AONB features an extensive network of footpaths including the High Weald Landscape Trail which pushes through the AONB from east to west. Dogs are welcome on the North Downs Way which pushes up from Folkestone and Dover through the heart of the Kent Downs. The advice is always to take care and keep your pet under control around cattle, particularly cows with calves.

Dog friendly beaches

A selection of Kent beaches welcome dogs all year round, whilst some are dog friendly outside of peak summer season. Thanet beaches open to dogs all year round include Birchington village’s Grenham and Epple beach bays, in Broadstairs Dumpton Gap and Kingsgate Bay, in Cliftonville the Foreness Point, Palm Bay and Sacketts Gap beaches and at Margate Fulsam Rock. In Ramsgate both Eastcliff and Western Undercliff are year round dog friendly beaches. More great beach and coastal stretches ideal for dog walking include on the North Coast Reculver Beach near Herne Bay and in South Coast White Cliffs Country beautiful Folkestone Warren, a coastal nature reserve. Shakespeare beach near Dover is also dog friendly all year round.
