Dogs at play in the grounds of Cradlewynd Boarding Kennels

Alternatively, if you would like to leave your dog in an experienced kennel while you explore Camarthenshire, you could try the Cradlewynd Boarding Kennels in St Clears, which promises to provide your dog with its own five-star holiday in a relaxed and stress-free environment. Set in six acres of grounds and woodlands, the staff have expert knowledge of behaviour, health, nutrition, grooming and training.

Scotland is a top autumn destination and where better than a jewel in the golfing crown: Gleneagles. As you can imagine, the luxury on offer for your dog easily equals that available to the human guests. The hotel is happy to accommodate dogs up to the size of a labrador for an additional charge of £100 per night (but you must inform them when booking) and this includes a dog bed, foam duvet, floor mats, bowls and that all-important doggy accessory, a poop scoop set. There are also kennels on the hotel grounds for £44 per night.

Finally, Belgraves in Belgravia is a sophisticated boutique hotel in the heart of London, which provides complimentary pet packages, including food bowl, toy and late check out.

There are also many resources to help you plan your holiday. Cornwall has its own dog-friendly guide, while you can also check out We Accept Pets and The Woof Guide, as well as Chien Bleu Travel, which reviews dog-friendly luxury hotels, from gastro inns to country estates.
