Dog Friendly

No need to leave the dog at home when you visit North Yorkshire, this is a dog-friendly holiday county, and that means they are just as welcome as you are.

Your four-legged friend is the perfect companion on your visit to the county. Take them with you as you explore and embrace the great outdoors. There are great walks from castles to abbey ruins that frame the stunning landscape before you recharge in a friendly tearoom or local pub.

Dog’s perfect holiday

Enjoy the rolling landscape of lush dales as you stretch your legs, visit the beautiful moorland, and explore the hills and peaks before heading to the rugged coastline for a bracing walk. Many stately homes, visitor attractions and tourist destinations will welcome you and your dog on your days out too.

You can enjoy a stroll on the beach and trek up a hill, all in the same afternoon if you wish.

Explore the dramatic cliff top views before heading down to enjoy the flat, sandy beaches and work up a healthy appetite.
