Recreate the iconic scenes of‘ The Holiday’ with your four-legged companion this Christmas.
Christmas celebrations are set to be a little different this year, so if restrictions are putting a stop to your usual traditions, escaping to the countryside with your pooch might be the next best thing.
Inspired by our love of festive film classics, Dog Friendly Cottages has a variety of chocolate-box and gingerbread-house cottages that will transport you to the cobbled streets and cosy homes of ‘TheHoliday’ and ‘Love Actually’ this festive season.
Hearthstone East Cottage
Hearthstone East Cottage is a 16th century chocolate-box home located in the Devon harbour town of Brixham. Take a short trip to Breakwater Beach or a ferry to Dartmouth or Torquay before returning to cosy up in front of the open wood fire. Perfect for the whole family, this cottage sleeps up to eight guests as well as two four legged ones!
Set in the sleepy village of Manaccan in South Cornwall, chocolate-box Rose Cottage boasts traditional features with a fairytale thatched roof, stained glass windows and inglenook fireplace. Take your pooch on the short passenger ferry to Helford Passage to enjoy the Trebah and Glendurgan gardens. With beautiful walks just minutes from your door, you and your furry companion are sure to enjoy a stay at Rose Cottage.
Rosehill Cottage is that you? It’s easy to be mistaken by Acorn Cottage, the spitting image of the beautiful Guildford home in the Christmas classic, ‘The Holiday’, with its matching gate and long cobbled pathway leading to the front door. The similarities don’t stop there, as Acorn Cottage, located in Bretforton in Worcestershire, comes with a cosy living area with wooden beams and an inglenook fireplace to transport you to Iris’ home, as she snuggles up with her dog for the evening.
There’s still availability for the Christmas period, but you will need to be quick before these pooch perfect, chocolate-box cottages get snapped up!
