Best for? Escaping city life
There’s no better way to let go of a stressful work week than by escaping to the countryside, and it doesn’t get more quintessentially English than The Cotswolds. Being less than 2 hours away from the capital, it’s the perfect location for a weekend away. And with plenty of quaint villages, rolling green hills and scenic waterways, it’s full of places for afternoon walkies. Of course, there are also plenty of dog-friendly pubs for a well-earned lunch, and if history is more your thing, this beautiful region’s Bronze Age heritage can be seen in museums and on ancient sites across the Cotswolds’ rolling hills and beyond.
Best for? Fresh seafood and coastal walks
Cornwall is best-loved for its Meditteranean-like shores, sub-tropic temperatures and stunning Cornish countryside. It’s also a haven for adrenaline-junkies who love to surf around its Atlantic coves. Even your pooch will love a paddle on Cornwall’s dog-friendly beaches! Foodies will love it here too, as it’s known as one of the best places in the UK for fresh seafood, locally-produced wines and some of the finest locally-grown veg too. It’s also home to plenty of thriving seaside towns, independent shops, galleries and dog-friendly attractions that the whole family will enjoy.

Head to North Wales and you’ll find Snowdonia National Park, a place of tranquillity with forests, mountains and marked trails for you and your pooch to explore.

Best for? A balance of rural and urban
Vibrant cities, panoramic countryside, and out-of-this-world coastlines, Scotland has a little bit of everything. It’s not all about the picturesque views and city skylines though, Scotland has a deep-rooted history which can be uncovered in museums and its ancient castle ruins that are scattered across the country from north to south. Travel to its most northerly point and you’ll be rewarded with beautiful islands and white sand beaches, with secluded coves that are perfect for exploring with your pup. Don’t forget to soak up the local culture while you’re there too. A trip to Scotland isn’t complete with trying some haggis, a famous local delicacy!
