Does your dog need a holiday?

Dog friendly self catering on the Gower may be just what the vet ordered! As the clocks spring forward and the daffodils are coaxed into the sunshine then a walk along a Welsh beach will blow the cobwebs away and wake you up for the summer.

A large number of the beaches around Swansea Bay and the Gower remain dog friendly all year (see restrictions here), but if you grab a late availability break before May 1st then you can avoid the dog ban all together. There is also a warm welcome for furry visitors in many attractions and pubs in the area.

Beautiful Singleton Park and Clyne Gardens in the heart of Swansea, together with a number of lesser known green spaces around the area, will give additional options for exercise and of course you can access the Gower section of the newly opened Wales Coast Path if you want to put in some serious mileage.

Gower Edge¬†enjoys welcoming multiple dogs and other pets. Rush (above) has tested the facilities for us, and Mum brings her dog, Bracken on occasion too. You do need to be aware that livestock graze freely in a number of areas on the Gower itself and an extending lead will support safe walking, keeping pets well under control. We have suggested a route to visit Arthur’s Stone to get you started.

If you are looking for dog friendly accommodation, check out our prices and availability HERE and perhaps we will see you soon. Happy walkies!

About the Author

Sylvia Mawby owns and runs Gower Edge with Louise. The house used to be the family home until a move to the Midlands for work, when the decision was taken to run it as a holiday let. Sylvia is a serial dog owner but has many friends with more than one dog and knows how difficult it can be to find holiday accommodation for multiple dogs. Hopefully this pet friendly home from home will fit the bill for you.
