Dog Friendly Holiday Cottages In Pembrokeshire – Everything You Need To Know About Bringing Your Dog To West Wales On Holiday!
If you are looking for dog friendly holidays here in West Wales, then we would love to welcome you to Croft Farm & Celtic Cottages.
We know how much a part of the family your dog is, so we are very happy to provide pet-friendly accommodation so your dog can come on holiday with you!
The cottages we offer for guests with a dog are The Barn, The Stable, The Cartwheel, The Hayloft, The Granary, Meadow Cottage, and Croft House (dogs to be kept downstairs only) and we are happy for you to bring one well-behaved, house-trained dog over the age of 6 months, or 2 miniatures (See our FAQ for details)
This part of the Pembrokeshire and Cardigan Bay coast is a fabulous area to come for a relaxing getaway, and there are LOADS of things to do and places to visit with your dog.
We have walks galore! You can take your dog on the Coastal Path, and many of the local beaches, or enjoy the ancient mossy oak woodland walks with their tumbling streams in Pengelli Woods, and the Gwaun Valley. If you fancy more far-reaching views you can walk the ‘Golden Way’ along the spine of the Preseli hills, with views down to the south Pembrokeshire coast, and North Wales’ Llyn Peninsula on a clear day.

Whilst we have taken care to list what is correct at the time of writing this post, we advise you to double check with Tourist Info for Ceredigion and Pembrokeshire (or us!) before taking your dog to these places, just in case their rules have changed. Also this is not an exhaustive list, so do let us know if you find somewhere especially welcoming of dogs so we can add it to the list!
