Celebrate the Year Of The Dog With Our Paw Friendly Cottages

Celebrate the Year Of The Dog With Our Paw Friendly Cottages

Posted by on Mar 21, 2018 in Blog | 1 comment

February 2018 saw the Chinese calendar roll into a brand-new year – it was goodbye to the year of the rooster and hello to the year of the dog. In traditional Chinese culture, each lunar year is associated with one of twelve animal signs – the rat, ox, tiger, rabbit, dragon, snake, horse, sheep, monkey, rooster, dog and pig – animals that are traditionally Chinese domestic pets or associated with good luck. Despite making our home in beautiful Wales, we have yet to get a request for a dragon-friendly cottage. A little surprising perhaps, though maybe Welsh dragons like to go elsewhere for their jollies. Furrier friends, however, are a different matter entirely. Almost half of all our holiday cottage bookings are made by Dioni guests looking for a pet-friendly place to stay. And we very much welcome them! Whilst pet-friendly occasionally means a place to park a guinea pig or rabbit cage for a week or two, more often than not our guests are looking for somewhere that will welcome their pooch as a much-valued member of the holiday tribe. Being dog-lovers ourselves, we know how important it is to be able to include your dog on your hols in a cottage that will suit their needs (like an enclosed garden, great walks, nice fire to lie in front of at the end of a long day’s walk). To get tails wagging at the start of this new year of the dog we’ve rounded up our top five favourite dog-friendly getaways in North Wales. We hope you and yours enjoy!   VIEWS OVER SNOWDON AND THE WELSH HIGHLAND RAILWAY | BRON-EIFION £500 – £990 SLEEPS 5 + COT | WIFI | NEAR PUB | PET-FRIENDLY | REAL FIRE This is a stunning location for anyone who loves mountains and steam trains – the Snowdonia of picture books and postcards. Bron Eifion is a traditional Snowdonia cottage with views over Snowdon and the Welsh Highland Railway. Every window frames a stunning landscape. Spacious living space with toasty log fire. Enclosed garden. A walker’s paradise with miles of hikes and trails right on the doorstep.   HOLIDAY ACCOMMODATION FOR THE...
