the Ruff Guide
Welcome to the Ruff Guide, the guide to holidaying with your dog

Dog friendly hotels, pubs, inns, bed & breakfast and now self-catering accommodation too.

The Ruff Guide is a holiday and short break accommodation index for dogs and their owners where both you and your dog will be welcome!

If you love to spend quality time with your pooch, this guide will help you find great dog-friendly establishments where you can eat or sleep (or both) with your dog by your side.

We believe that holidaying with your dog should be easy, and we hope that with our help, you and your friends (two or four legged) will enjoy many wonderful holidays together.
