You are absolutely spoilt for choice if you decide that Wales is your destination for a dog-friendly staycation.
From three Welsh National Parks, 136 mountains (and the Welsh 3000s) and 600 castles (more per square mile than anywhere in the world), to 6 cities and 870 miles of coast, no matter what type of trip you’re after, Wales has it.
The most popular part to visit is North Wales, on the doorstep of Snowdonia and with tourist highlights such as Conwy and Llandudno. But Mid Wales also has its highlights, and the south has a lot of the bigger towns and cities.
North Wales Hotels
- Pale Hall is one of the best luxurious hotels in the whole of Wales, with 5* service too
- Want to explore the coast? Castle Hotel in Conwy is close to all of the local attractions
- Groes Inn is peaceful, situated in the countryside and close to Snowdonia
- With lots to do locally and top-notch food, Lastra Farm Hotel is perfect if you’re wanting somewhere in Anglesey
Dog-Friendly Spa Hotels
- A pool, gym and then fabulous food afterwards – the Waterloo Hotel allows dogs in the lodge rooms too
- Lake Vyrnwy has some of the best views of any hotel in Wales, and elegant rooms
National Park Breaks
- Beautifully relaxing, Peterstone is in the Brecon Beacons National Park and is super dog-friendly
- Dogs are very welcome at The Old Rectory and it looks like something out of a film
- Plas Yn Dre is in Bala, so ideal if you want a history-steeped town on the edge of Snowdonia
- For a hotel that feels like a luxury cottage, Coes Faen Lodge is also a perfect mix of old and new
- Gwaelod y Garth Inn is technically in Cardiff, yet not quite in Cardiff, so you get a break while being in the hubbub of it all
