Pet friendly places to stay

Welcome petsAccording to the Quality in Tourism website nearly two million dog owners and around one million cat owners take their pets with them when enjoying a break away from home!

In response to this increasing trend, Quality in Tourism has set up some simple criteria to meet the requirements of owners and their pets. Those tourism businesses offering accommodation that follow this criteria for guests that bring their dogs, cats and/or birds are awarded the 'Welcome Pets' status.
