Countdown to the lift of dog restrictions

Some of you reading this may be experiencing some post-summer holiday blues, but the arrival of the winter months doesn’t have everyone reaching for next year’s calendar to plan the next summer holiday. No in fact, I think it’s safe to say that the 1st September kicks off a much anticipated countdown.

I am of course referring to dog owners and their beloved furry friends who will soon be able to roam free on any beach they wish when the dog restrictions are lifted come October 1st. Each year a select few Pembrokeshire beaches impose restrictions during the summer months but when the winter comes back around, life returns to normal with all beaches becoming available once more for a doggie day out!


These next few months are perfect for those of you wanting a peaceful getaway with your pooch and great for you, we have a fantastic selection of wonderful dog friendly cottages available. Opt for somewhere near the sea, choose a property nestled in the heart of the country or take advantage of Tenby’s streets which will become a little quieter now. Take a look at our dog friendly cottages here.

All across our Welsh county, we understand that your pups are part of the family just as much as you are. That’s why you’ll find dog friendly pubs, cafes and restaurants throughout the land. If you’re not sure which eateries accept dogs, give our Concierge Team a quick call for recommendations or check out our Places to Eat page on our website here. We’ll even book you a table, just let us know where and when – we’ll do the rest!


Whilst we’re on the topic of our Concierge Team, you might also want to surprise your four-legged friend with their very own welcome gift. We’ve set up two extra special packages just for your dogs so that you can show your pooch just how much you love them. Order a Pet Parcel for a range of delicious (and natural!) dog treats and handy items or go all out and spoil them with a completely dog-safe celebration cake!

However you’re feeling about the summer coming to an end, why not brighten up your winter with a relaxing retreat to Pembrokeshire for the entire family? Take a look at our website here or call our Reservations Team on 01437 772755 to discuss your requirements.
