The site of numerous National Parks, welcoming rural villages and historic cities, North Yorkshire thoroughly deserves its reputation as one of England's prize holiday destinations. There's plenty to see and do around the county but by far one of the foremost attractions is the abundance of picturesque walking routes, with something to suit walkers of all abilities. For those with pets, no holiday feels quite right if you have to leave them at home. Fortunately, there are plenty of pet-friendly hotels in North Yorkshire.
Proximity to Walking Routes
As England's largest county, North Yorkshire has plenty of space to stretch your legs. Favourite destinations are the famous Yorkshire Dales and the North York Moors National Park. If you're keen to take Fido out on the Yorkshire hills, there are plenty of pet-friendly hotels in these parts to welcome you.
The Royal Oak in Settle is a stylish country inn located on the western edge of the Yorkshire Dales National Park. Not only does the inn welcome dogs, it also features a fantastic restaurant and has some meeting rooms, great for professional guests.
Space to Exercise
With more than 40% of its land given over to National Parks, visitors have a huge choice of walks. On the days you choose to check out some local attractions rather than stretching your legs, though, you'll need some other way of wearing out your beloved dog. This is why it can pay to pick a hotel with plenty of outside space, meaning your dog can get her exercise on the hotel grounds.
The Royal Oak Inn in York has a spacious garden, great for wearing out your dog. There's also free WiFi, making it easy to plan each day's events.
Pet owners don't need to compromise on the quality of their accommodation just to bring the dog along for the ride. Pet-friendly hotels in North Yorkshire offer the same levels of comfort as anywhere else.
The Chiltern Guesthouse in Whitby is a great example of the standard on offer from pet-friendly hotels in North Yorkshire. The four-star guesthouse boasts comfy family rooms, a tasty breakfast and close proximity to one of the county's nicest beaches.
