Walking With Your Dog

We are often asked for dog-friendly walks so we have created some special itineraries with you and your dog in mind. These routes have been selected as we are able to book accommodation that is suitable for both of you – either in the location you walk to, or close by with a transfer.

Whichever route you choose, the choice of accommodation with a dog is more limited than usual, sometimes only one or two accommodations are available in certain locations. The more flexible you can be, the more chance we have of being able to arrange your holiday. For instance, you may have one or two nights without en-suite facilities or you may have to spend two nights in one location (with transfers). As availability is often very limited we strongly recommend booking early to avoid disappointment.

Please note that some accommodations only accept small dogs, so we will need to know your dog’s breed to ensure we book the appropriate overnight stay. Also, some will not allow dogs into the bedroom, so occasionally your dog may be expected to stay in another room in the house, such as the conservatory. Just let us know if this is not suitable and again we will take this into account when booking.

As you will be staying in unfamiliar places you will also need to consider if your dog will be happy with this and if he/she can be left alone without getting upset and causing damage.

You will need to bring dog food, towels and bedding for your dog and it is best to have this transported with your luggage between locations. If you cannot fit this into your own luggage bag within the weight allowance, you will need to book an extra piece of luggage to be transported with our luggage courier. Please ask us for a quote for this.

Most of our accommodation providers do make an additional charge for dogs. This is an extra cost in addition to the published holiday price and you will need to settle this directly with the accommodation owner(s).

All our Cumbria Way itineraries can be walked with a dog with a bit of careful planning. Your choice of start date is restricted to certain days of the week and on some nights you may be in hotels rather than B&Bs and guesthouses. Again, look for the holiday codes ending with a D here.

Client Feedback

Thank you Mickledore! This was our 6th trip with you, and it was great.

Had a fabulous time walking the Cotswold Way recently despite walking in a heatwave! The scenery is stunning and the accommodation top notch as we’ve come to expect from Mickledore. We had an extra day in Bath at the end of the walk. It’s such a beautiful city. This was our sixth holiday with this company and we would thoroughly recommend them.

This was a perfect holiday; everything ran smoothly and we didn’t have to worry about anything except the walking. Distances covered each day were very suitable for us, neither too long nor too short. A memorable experience which I would love to repeat elsewhere next time I’m holidaying in UK.
