Swanage Pet-Friendly Cottages FAQ

Below are a series of answers from frequently asked questions from both owners and pets that will allow you to find the perfect pet-friendly Swanage cottage even easier:

Do you have any pet-friendly Swanage Cottages?

We sure do. We have 33 pet-friendly cottages dotted all over Swanage and the Isle of Purbeck. If this was your only question then please browse all our Swanage pet-friendly cottages now.

How much will it cost to bring my pet/pets?

Each cottage will clearly state how much it will cost but a good rule of thumb is between £20 to £30 per pet. However, we have cottages that allow pets to stay for free.

I have more than one dog. Can they all come?

Yes they can. Each of our pet-friendly cottages clearly shows how many pets they will accept. We have cottages that will accept all the way up to 5 pets.

I have found a pet-friendly cottage. What will I have to bring?

You will have to bring everything you would normally take. As a reminder, a food bowl, water bowl, dog bed, lead, waste bags, food and snacks and a towel will be a great start. Don’t forget their favourite toy!

Are there any good walks once I arrive?

You will be pretty hard pushed not to find a good walk in Swanage. However, once you have found a cottage you like it is always worth doing a little bit of extra research on the area to ensure it has the walks your dog will enjoy.

Do all of your pet-friendly cottages have a garden?

Not necessarily. We have quite a few pet-friendly apartments and not all of those will have a garden. Each of our cottage listings will clearly show whether a property has a garden or not so if this is important to you it will be easy to see which fit your criteria.

Will you accept a puppy?

Probably not. Most cottages do use the words “well-behaved” and most puppies won’t fall into that band. However, it never hurts to ask so if you find a pet-friendly cottage you like then click the book button and ask the agent that specific question and they can check directly with the owner for you.

Can I bring our house cat?

Maybe. If you find a pet-friendly cottage you like then click the book button and ask the agent that specific question and they can check directly with the owner for you.

Are there any restrictions on where pets can go in a cottage?

Sometimes. If there are restrictions, such as to be kept downstairs only, it will be clearly documented within the cottage description.

Are there any restrictions when my pet is outside?

Sometimes. A few of our pet-friendly cottages are on working farms so will require your pet be kept on a lead. If this is the case it will be clearly documented within the cottage description.

Fydo here, quick, my human is out! Will I really enjoy Swanage?

You sure will. We have dog-friendly beaches, dog-friendly pubs, the South West Coast Path so you can walk with a view, lots of rivers to splash around in, moorland to explore and some mud to roll in! You will probably make a friend or two while you are here as well – some of us are lucky enough to live here.
