Amazing Places to Take Your Dog This Summer

Amazing Places to Take Your Dog This Summer

Summer is here - even if it feels like the heatwave may be over before it started - and here at Caboodle HQ we know that days out with your dog are the best kind of days. That’s why we’ve pulled together some of our favourite spots across the UK in one easy list!


Best Dog Friendly Beaches In The UK

If it’s beaches you're after, we strongly recommend you visit . Their dog friendly travel section helps you navigate the rules and regulations of UK coastline so that you and your four-legged pal can feel the sand between your toes.

Here are a few of our favourites

  1. Porthmadog beach, Wales. This beautiful beach has a huge section which is dog friendly all round, a short walk from Porthmadog castle means you and your dog can make a day of it!
  2. Sandsend Beach, Yorkshire. Beautiful sands, glorious sea, and even the chance to see the odd dolphin in the distance. 
  3. Whitsand Beach, Cornwall. Set on the Rame peninsular, this beautiful beach boats stunning sands, cafe and a chilled relaxing vibe.


Best dog friendly heritage spots

A favourite amongst the Caboodle HQ dogs, English Heritage locations are generally dog friendly, and a great place for dogs and their owners to enjoy a walk against stunning historical backdrops. 


Here are some of our favourites.

If you like your heritage to include a more manicured garden and country house, be sure to check out The National Trust.

Although many National Trusts don’t allow dogs inside their historic buildings, most do allow dogs on parts of their grounds, providing they are kept on the lead and you clear up after them! 

There are too many to choose from (take a look!), but our favourite is Dunster Castle, Somerset. It’s perfect for Instagram-worthy dog pictures, breath-taking gardens, and a fascinating watermill with a great tea room.
