Dog Friendly Cottages and Bed & Breakfasts on the Isle of Wight
Farm Stay dog friendly cottages and B&Bs on the Isle of Wight mean that you can holiday on the island without having to leave your dog at home. Our cottages and B&Bs welcome dogs and your pet will love the rural location many of which are on working farms.
The Isle of Wight has been one of the most popular holiday destinations in England since Victorian times. A personal favourite of Queen Victoria, the imposing Osbourne house is testament to her fondness of the island. More than half of the island (mainly in the west) has been designated an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and though small, the island is a favourite of (dog) walkers and cyclists throughout the country, mainly due to the scenery and miles of coastal and cliff-top walks.
With over 500 miles of footpaths, many starting at the doorstep of your cottage or B&B, weaving their way through the varied landscapes, there is no shortage of choice for places to walk your dog.
The Isle of Wight Coastal Path enables you to explore the island leading you along many areas of spectacular coastline and beaches on a walk which covers 67 miles of paths. Enough to wear out even the most energetic of dogs!
The Isle of Wight is one of the few places in the UK where you might be able to catch a glimpse of the rare and endangered red squirrel, and the island as a whole is widely unspoiled and rural. Places such as Robin Hill Country Park offer acres and acres of open parkland, a perfect location for dogs.
Isle of Wight beaches are the perfect playground for dogs with a great selection of both sandy and stone beaches for them to dig up and race around.
Bonchurch - both sandy and shingle incorporating the Horseshoe and Monks Bay beaches.
Fort Victoria - has some great walks with tremendous views back across to the mainland.
Reeth Bay - the Island's most southerly point, and a very quiet beach with loads of space for dogs to run around!
A Farm Stay dog friendly holiday to the Isle of Wight offers you the chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of the mainland and enjoy a relaxing holiday of beautiful scenery and dog-walks across the island and along the coast.
