Pet Friendly Holidays in Kent and Sussex

Holidays are the perfect opportunity to enjoy quality time with our pets and explore new places. Here at Garden of England Cottages we understand the needs of dogs and their owners and offer dog friendly accommodation where you can both feel at home.

Kent and Sussex are wonderful places to walk, both for you and your canine companion -and offer an immense variety of landscapes. You can find hills, parkland, woodlands, marshes, river valleys, and an interesting coastline with those all important dog friendly beaches, as well as places you never perhaps thought you’d be able to take your dog. Here are a few ideas for you and your best friend to enjoy together.
