Want a winter escape that not only rejuvenates your spirit but also includes your furry friend? Ditch the dog sitter, take the stress out of ‘pawing’ through endless holiday sites trying to find truly dog-friendly accommodation, and book a getaway at Burnbake. Our award-winning, dog-friendly, luxury forest lodge holidays have been recognised by the Dorset Tourism Awards as being a great place to stay.  Here’s our top 5 reasons for bringing your pooch on holiday:

The perfect ‘walkies’

Enchanting woodland walks with your woofs, explore the Dorset countryside just a stone’s throw from the sea. Durlston Park and Studland beach offer idyllic coastal walks, providing ample exercise for your canine companion – and you! Explore more about the area with our dog-friendly Dorset rambles guide.

The coast is yours

Visit the dramatic Jurassic coast with your dog before summer closures and restrictions – make the most of having the beach to yourselves. Learn about the dog-friendly beaches in the region, to plan the best winter coastal experience.

A man’s best friend

Burnbake provides a rare opportunity to easily share your holiday with your dog. Whether you have a new canine companion or a hectic work life, spending quality time with your pet is invaluable. Studies show that owning a pet improves mental health, reducing cortisol levels and promoting relaxation – you can’t argue with that. Life is better when the whole family is welcome!

Pet-friendly pubs – paw us a pint!

Enjoy a pint or some delicious pub grub with your dog by your side. Discover the charm of dog-friendly pubs in our local area such as the Bankes Arms, Square and Compass, and Fox Inn. New environments stimulate your dog’s mental faculties, providing enrichment and it gives you a chance to eat, drink and be merry without worrying about when you have to get home for ‘Fido’.

A tail-wagging welcome

On arrival, a doggy welcome box awaits, featuring treats and grooming essentials from The Dog & I. Each lodge comes equipped with a warm outside shower for your dog – a true countryside life saver, and the Burnbake shop stocks a range of supplies for all your dog’s essential needs.

Make your winter memorable with a dog-friendly Burnbake break, offering exploration, companionship, and peace of mind. It’s time to embark on a new adventure!
