Pet-Friendly Holiday Cottages
If you are a loving dog owner then your four legged friend is a true family member and deserves to go on holiday too! At Wyke Dorset Cottages we want to ensure both you and your pooch enjoy your cottage holiday and all that Dorset’s countryside has to offer. We have a host of cottages in the perfect locations to discover Dorset’s country lanes, rolling hills, woodland paths and bracing cliff top routes.
