Dog Friendly Durham
We love dogs in Durham, and with a wealth of pet-friendly accommodation, pubs, cafes and attractions there’s no need to leave your four-legged friends behind.
Dogs love the great outdoors just as much as you do, and heading out on your own two (or four) feet is one of the best ways to explore this amazing county. From a leisurely stroll to a more challenging walk, grab the lead, pull on your hiking boots and head to the Durham Dales and North Pennines Area of Outstanding Beauty where you and your dog can discover Durham’s great outdoors with walking routes galore.
Forests and dogs are made for each other, so where better to visit than Hamsterley Forest? With 2,000 hectares of woodland to explore it’s the perfect for pets. Or if your dog prefers a swim in the sea, head to the harbour town of Seaham on the Durham Heritage Coast to enjoy dramatic views and dog-friendly beaches.
When it’s time to refuel, you’ll find lots of dog-friendly places to choose from – grab a hearty lunch in a cosy pub or enjoy a homemade tearoom treat. And for the perfect place to stay, you’ll enjoy a warm welcome at a range of dog-friendly accommodation including cottages, hotels, guest houses, B&Bs, caravans and campsites across the county.
Finally, we want to see your photos; upload photos of your dog having a great time in Durham to Facebook or Twitter, and we’ll add the best ones to a gallery. Don’t forget to use the hashtag #DogsLoveDurham
