[dropcap]We’ve[/dropcap] all seen dogs happily racing around the beach, running through the countryside, looking up for scraps of food as you sit in the cafe patio eating your breakfasts, and it’s clear – dogs love cottage holidays. ESPECIALLY beach holidays. The opportunity to explore new terrain, investigate foreign scents and meet unfamiliar faces is as exciting for our four legged folk as it us for us. And we know here at Snaptrip, for some, leaving mans-best-friend behind is simply not an option. For this reason, we provide our customers with the option of thousands of pet friendly cottages right up and down the UK, with some extra special properties on the UK’s coast!
Tasteful Scarborough Apartment Yorkshire
The well loved seaside town of Scarborough draws in scores of visitors every year, and for good reason. Home to sandy beaches and family attractions this town showcases the Yorkshire coast in all its glory. Whether you want to stroll along the beach, ice-cream in hand, or venture into the nearby North York Moors, Scarborough is the place to be.
Our property is located in the lovely South Bay area meaning you’re only a short stroll from the centre of town. Beautifully decorated, and with ample space for the whole group (including the dog of course), this is a charming place to unwind. The light and airy kitchen is an ideal place for enjoying quality time together over dinner, but if you ever tire of home-cooking the pub is only a mile away.
Lovely Eastbourne Cottage Brighton
Only a short walk to Cuckmere Haven, Seaford stands at the foot of the South Downs National Park and though it boasts it own beautiful shorelines, is also a short drive away from popular Brighton. One of UK’s coolest beach towns, Brighton has been attracting visitors with its classic attractions and kitsch charm for decades. The easy access trails around the Seven Sisters (those huge chalk cliffs, which make for a stunning photograph), meaning your pup will be well walked. Expect lagoons and flowers, rockpools and bright blue waters.
Our property, just 220 yards from the beach with shops, pubs and restaurants at no more than 110 yards, is a wonderful Eastbourne escape. It’s stylish, contemporary, bright and breezy with a colourful sea-side vibe. The double bedroom boasts an en-suite bathroom, Freeview TV, DVD player and iPod dock, as well as a patio with furniture.
Attractive Dartmouth Cottage Devon
Darmouth is the home of the picturesque Castle Cove and Sugary Cove, tropical-esque shorelines with turquoise waters and the odd orange crab tempting fate. In the very heart of the South Hams on the southern coast, Dartmouth rests on the picture-perfect River Dart and is a historic, deepwater port turned major Devon tourist attraction.
This Dartmouth cottage is a real cosy heart-warmer. With original beams and warm leather sofas, wooden floors and country-feel, it’s a great base in which to explore the dazzling sights of Dartmouth. It sleeps 7 people, so it’s ready to welcome in the larger parties, as well as a garden patio area for those outdoor meals. The pub is within 1 mile of the cottage, so you don’t have to worrying about getting tipsy on this Devon break.
Tasteful St Ives Apartment S43921 Cornwall
Need we explain the goodness of St. Ives? A well respected, ever-popular coastal town, St Ives is famous for world-class beaches, quaint cobbled streets and its vibrant art scene. With fabulous coastal walks to be enjoyed, including the famous South Cornwall Coastal Path, you will see why so many have been inspired to depict St Ives in their artwork. Arguably the town’s main artistic attraction is the St Ives Tate, so you can really grab yourself a slice of culture before resigning to hours spent on the sands.
Our St Ives apartment has a distinctly modern edge, with glass tables and minimalist design. You get to enjoy such modern luxuries as under-floor heating and an iPod docking station if you want to play some holiday tunes. The nearest beach is a 2-3 min walk away, down Primrose Valley and the nearest shops/pubs can be found within a 5-10 min walk.
Stunning Skegness Cottage Lincolnshire
Skegness – the king of kitsch. One of Britain’s first seaside towns, and still one of its most popular, this coastal haunt is full to the brim of classic sea-side activities. From bowls on the beach, donkey rides across the sands, pier arcades to spend your change, as well as fishing and shopping. If you’re looking for some old-fashioned fun, you need look no further than Skegness. However, it’s also perfect for those of the more peaceful disposition – for bird watchers and nature lovers who can take a step back from reality to enjoy the secrets of Lincolnshire’s Natural Coast.
The above Skegness cottage is one the finest sea-side properties in the whole of the county, with its classic, clean decor, exceptional attention to detail and of course, its family sized hot tub.

Fantasy Island is only 2 miles away, while Natureland, incorporating a seal sanctuary and aquarium, is even less at 0.75 miles.
