We love dogs! – most of us in the office have dogs and bring them to work (sorry postmen/women), and we thought we would share our five favourite dog-friendly cottages:
Set in a valley two miles from Llandovery, this cottage sleeps up to four people plus two dogs. The property owner is so dog friendly that they are happy to provide a dog-sitting service at a small additional charge! From £426 per week.
With amazing views of the Brecon Beacons, this cottage sleeps three dogs and up to eight people. It boasts a spacious utility room with a drying area for muddy boots or paws! From £426 per week.
3. Gilestone Farm, Talybont-on-Usk
This Georgian farmhouse has seven bedrooms, sleeping up to 12 people and three dogs. There’s a boot room and downstairs bathroom to suit walkers, and the house is incredibly spacious and welcoming for families, friends and dogs. The property is just a few minutes walk into the village of Talybont-on-Usk with four pubs including the dog-friendly Star Inn, which has been named CAMRA pub of the year for seven consecutive years. From £1,265 per week.
4. Quizzer Cottage, near Abergavenny
This welsh hide-away welcomes two dogs and up to three people with one king room and one single room. The Skirrid Inn, reputedly Wales’ oldest pub, is just five minutes away offering great food and drink as well as a friendly welcome for dogs. Quizzer Cottage is a short drive from other top restaurants including The Walnut Tree and The Hardwick. From £394 per week.
5. Upper Penlan, Llanfilo
