If the mere thought of Bonfire Night sends your poor pup into hiding under the nearest bed, we have just the thing to entice them out. No it’s not a lifetime supply of bacon (they wish!), but it is a glorious pet friendly escape to the beautiful Brecon Beacons National Park in Wales, where dogs can stay free at over 200 dog friendly cottages for the month of November.
The ultimate dog’s playground with miles of open countryside to run around in and plenty of dog-friendly pit stops along the way (many even offering dog bowls ready for four-legged visitors), The Brecon Beacons is a doggy delight – far from the loud banging and flashing of fireworks.
The team at Brecon Beacons Holidays cottages have got plenty of insider tips on the best dog-friendly pubs, restaurants and walking trails in the area. Here are their top picks where your pup can stay free for November:
