Dog-friendly Weekends is the first all-encompassing, practical and inspirational guidebook to dog-friendly holidays in Britain. Not only does it cover dog-friendly accommodation and pubs, but most importantly, each chapter offers a well-rounded weekend away, with recommendations on attractions where the dog is allowed and great walks for all abilities. Travel journalist and dog-travel expert Lottie Gross has spent several years travelling thousands of miles around Britain with her canine companions sifting out places which are truly dog-friendly from those which are simply dog-tolerant. Drawing on her experiences, and on her research as the Times Expert Traveller dog-friendly writer, she has come up with a unique guidebook that pinpoints all the best places to go and things to do when travelling around Britain with your dog. Going on holiday without your dog is never the ideal solution, which is why this book offers inspiration for 50 dog-friendly weekends away in Britain, including museums where you can take the dog inside on a rainy day, heritage railways where the dog rides free, and countless excellent walks the whole family can enjoy. Island-hopping, city breaks, and coast and countryside romps are all included, from Cornwall to the Scottish Highlands. This is also a useful, practical guide that addresses the questions all dog-owners have to consider when travelling with their pets. Is there space by the table for my dog? Can the dog come down to breakfast? Can the dog be left in the room? Each place included has been vetted (no pun intended) by the author, whose first-hand experience is supplemented with contributions from experts on safe and responsible travel with your dog, ensuring every owner is well equipped to give the whole family a memorable break away.

About the Author

Lottie Gross is a travel writer and dog lover and has spent the last three years dragging her dogs along on adventures for work. From light aircraft flights to the Isles of Scilly to city breaks in Lincoln, her dogs are almost as well travelled as she is. Lottie is the dog-friendly writer for Times Expert Traveller and has penned dog-related travel articles for the likes of The Telegraph, woman&home and Woman magazines.During her trips, she has noticed a marked difference between hotels and attractions that say they are dog-friendly and those that actually are; there are plenty of places that will allow your dog inside, but not everywhere really welcomes them. That’s why she has made finding Britain’s truly dog-friendly destinations her mission.
