For dog lovers, no holiday is complete without four-legged friends, and a holiday by the sea really isn't complete without a jolly good walk. So from gardens and woodland to cliff top peninsulas and coastal paths these are the hotels that will not only keep furry guests entertained, but that welcome their presence and enhance your holiday all in one go. Hunting lodges, country houses and popular local pubs all provide an opportune place to rest and play. From chic and stylish boutique destinations to cosy rustic retreats where welly boots are all but compulsory wearing, meanwhile nearby beaches offer the kind of playground that dogs dream of. Whether you visit in summer or winter, there's always plenty to see and do on a coastal holiday with a dog in tow, from the Channel Islands to South Devon, Pembrokeshire to Lancashire, Sussex to the Scottish Isles. Today, a dog friendly hotel isn't just about letting your pooch sleep on the floor either. Many provide beds, dog treats and dog bowls to make sure that your pet is as comfortable as you are during his/her stay. And there was you thinking this was a holiday that's all about you.
