Research by the Kennel Club found that one in three dog owners were more likely to go on holiday or take day trips further from home if places were dog friendly. Its Open for Dogs survey found that a quarter of dog owners cancelled plans because they were worried about leaving their dogs at home.

Choosing luxury pet friendly self catering accommodation will ensure that your dog is in a comfortable, safe environment throughout your stay. Do your research ahead of booking to ensure that your chosen apartment or cottage provides everything you need for a dog friendly break.

Dogs are very much part of life at Netherby Hall. Gerald and Margo Smith, who own and operate Netherby Hall, are the proud owners of two adorable black labradors which can often be spotted bounding through the grounds while out on walks.

When booking luxury pet friendly self catering accommodation, it’s important to have somewhere easily accessible where you can take your dog out for a walk.

At Netherby Hall, guests and their canine companions are free to explore the 36-acres of private gardens and grounds of the Grade II* listed mansion.

Lovingly maintained by a hardworking team of gardeners, the gardens and grounds at Netherby Hall are wonderful at any time of year, from the glorious colours of autumn to the splendour of summer, and offer an opportunity to escape into nature just yards from your apartment or cottage. And with access to the gardens and grounds closed to the general public unless a special event is taking place, guests can be assured that they can make the most the peace and tranquility on their doorstep.
