A cottage and 18th-century corn mill in North Yorkshire have been named among some of the best dog-friendly places to stay across the UK.

Sunnyside in Robin Hood’s Bay and Low Mill Guest House in Bainbridge both featured in the ‘20 of the best dog-friendly places to stay in the UK’ list by The Guardian.

When it comes to wanting to disappear to a cabin in the woods to escape everyday life or taking a road trip to a room with a coastal view where fluffy family members are welcome, this roundup appears to have it all.

It said: “From scenic hotels to coastal inns, woodland retreats to country camping, these places are more than happy to welcome your canine companions.”

What did The Guardian say about Sunnyside in Robin Hood’s Bay?

The writer commented: “If your dog is the type that prefers to lounge on plush cushions and sofas rather than rough it in a dog bed on the floor, Sunnyside is going to satisfy their daily napping requirements.

“This cottage in charming Robin Hood’s Bay, which has a dog-friendly sandy beach with no summer restrictions, is run by the local pet-shop owner, and they’ve thought of everything.

“There are spare leads, a dog toy box and even dog robes to help them dry off after a day on the beach.

“Your dogs are allowed on the furniture as long as you’re using the throws provided, and they can snooze in the bedroom with you.

“The village has lots of dog-friendly pubs and cafes for eating out – try Brambles Bistro. And walks along the coast will knacker out even the most energetic of dogs.

“Don’t miss a ride on the North Yorkshire Moors railway from Whitby to Pickering, too.”

They also included information about Sunnyside, adding: “From £235 for two nights, sleeps four, two small dogs or one large, baytownholidaycottages.co.uk.”

What did The Guardian say about Low Mill Guest House in Bainbridge?

“Right in the heart of the Wensleydale area lies this 18th-century corn mill where dogs are given as warm a welcome as their humans by owners Neil and Jane and their beautiful sighthound, Dotty,” explains The Guardian writer.

“There are just three rooms here, each uniquely decorated with colourful printed wallpapers and irreverent artworks, and some have original mill equipment that still works to this day.

“Dogs can’t join you in the breakfast room but they’ll love roaming the gardens where red squirrels can be seen snacking at the feeding boxes.

“From £110 a night, lowmillguesthouse.co.uk.”
