With 76 percent of Britons saying they would avoid an overseas trip this year, UK holidays are booming. There are many reasons to take a break in the UK, but an added bonus is the opportunity to take pets on holiday without having too much hassle.

Not every holiday spot is created equal when it comes to holidaying with pets.

Britons looking for a dog-friendly holiday spot this year may wonder where to go.

A new study by RAC Shop has looked at the percentage of dog-friendly holiday rentals, cafes and attractions in each area to find the best spots for a UK holiday with pets.

Taking the top spot was Camber Sands.

With its sandy beach, castle and the Rye Harbour Nature Reserve, Camber Sands was found to be the perfect seaside destination for a UK holiday with pets.

Tripadvisor user Fearless said: “I have been going on holiday to Camber Sands all of my younger years. Been back a few times on day trips, but I’ve just spent the week there with my dog, Boris.

“Still a great place to go (30 years since I’ve really explored), Rye, Romney, Dymchurch, Hythe, Dungeness, Hastings are all on the doorstep, and all the costal nature walks.

“Friendly people, and lots has changed, but so much of the heritage hasn’t. I would recommend it to couples, families, dog owners and all.”

In second place was St Ives.

The Cornwall town has plenty of pet-friendly cafes with outdoors seating.

Pet owners will enjoy the art scene and beaches, and may even wish to try their hands at surfing.

In third place was the Yorkshire Dales, offering plenty of walking opportunities for both pets and humans, as well as beautiful scenery.

Rounding up the top five in fourth and fifth places were North Wales’s holiday staples.

In fourth place was Snowdonia, the largest national park in Wales.

Google reviewer Lynda Johnson said: “Over 900 Square miles of stunning landscape. Plenty of places to park and walk, pretty villages. Lakes, rivers and mountains.”

Betws-y-Coed and Beddgelert are two villages which have pet-friendly accommodation and cafes for the perfect stay with pets.

In fifth place was Anglesey.

The island has plenty to offer to holidaymakers, and there’s also a lot of pet-friendly options.

The only Scottish destination in the top 10 was Loch Ness at number six.

The famous lake was noted for its beauty and proximity to Inverness, the capital of the Highlands.
