Dog Friendly Holiday Accommodation in Dorset
Welcome to doggy paradise! We offer ‘home from home’ dog friendly Self Catering Cottages and Lodges in Dorset.
We eagerly await your holiday with us and have lots of treats coming your way:
- Relax in your holiday accommodation, where you are very welcome. We will have your very own welcome pack ready for your arrival.
- Chill out in your very own enclosed garden, decking or patio.
- Take a little mooch around the grounds, where there are plenty of places for you to sniff and explore with your family, and play fetch too.
- There are lots of dog walks in Dorset, right on our doorstep
- Stop for a refreshment at the many pet friendly pubs nearby
- Meet our resident pooch, who loves to see new faces. In fact she loves everyone, even the chickens!
- Wash the fun of your day out of your hair in your very own warm water shower.
- For all of this you (well your humans) only pay £10 for each stay at Lancombe, regardless of how long you holiday with us. But, if you have stayed with us before, your humans have no excuse not to bring you again because your return visits will always be free!

Your Lancombe Welcome
We love Dogs of all shapes and sizes at Lancombe. So to make sure you know how welcome you are, you will have your own Welcome Pack waiting for you on Arrival, which contains:
- Your Food Bowl & Mat
- A towel for you to dry off with after the may beach & countryside walks on offer
- Poo bags
- A Blanket, so everyone can relax if you’re a sofa dog
- Most importantly a Treat. Well you deserve something nice after your journey too!
- If you fancy a shower whilst you’re here, there are some small, gentle showers at our ‘Pet Rest Stop’ outside Reception.
- We also have ‘Doggie Deposit’ bins around the grounds, just for you.
Available on request:
- We offer a mini fridge especially for your food if needed. So it doesn’t get mixed up with Mum or Dad’s stinky food.
- Did Mum or Dad forget your lead? Don’t worry, you won’t miss out, we have spares here.
Don't be Lonely
If your mum or dad want to go to one of those strange places where they don’t welcome ‘your kind’ then ask them to ring one of these people and have your own day out:
