The PetsPyjamas Travel Awards are back and better than ever! Take a look at the categories featured in this year’s awards.


We’ve been on the look-out for the properties that really go above and beyond to make their doggie guests feel welcome. From super friendly staff and pet amenities on-site, to giving four-legged guests access to all areas of the property. A hotel or cottage can’t just be pet-friendly – it has to be truly pet welcoming!


For some pets and their owners, only five-star treatment will do when it comes to their dog-friendly break. With attention paid to every little detail, these hotels are the ones that boast a combination of first-class service, outstanding facilities and a fantastic location.


Pets need rest and relaxation just as much as us sometimes. Whether that comes in the form of a restful night’s sleep on a four poster dog bed or a couple of hours in the on-site doggie spa, these are the dog-friendly properties that will leave your pet feeling truly pampered after a break away!


What do our four-legged friends love most in the world? Walks! And what do you suppose is at the top of their travel wish list? Why fantastic walks of course! These dog-friendly destinations all offer the best on and off-lead fun in breath-taking locations.

For some furry friends there really is no place like home! So we’ve kept our eyes peeled for the best self-catering holiday cottages. All these dog-friendly properties offer that extra bit of privacy and space for pets and their owners who enjoy their creature comforts.


When holidaying with your family, it’s important to pick a destination that will suit everyone’s wants and needs. And these dog-friendly properties really do have something for everyone! From swimming pools and playgrounds for the children, to a luxurious spa for mum and dad, and of course, fabulous grounds for furry friends to explore.



For some pets and their owners, a standard hotel room just won’t do. So we’ve been on the look-out for dog-friendly properties that are a little bit different. And these destinations did not disappoint! From a quirky treehouse in Hampshire to a bone-fide castle in the Cotswolds, these are true dog-friendly hidden gems.



These dog-friendly hotels are the ones that will make you hungry to get away! With Michelin stars, fantastic dining location and stellar table service, we’ve kept our eyes open for the top destinations that give their guests the ultimate gastronomic experience. Bone appetit!

Britain is not the only nation of dog lovers – our European neighbours also have a host of gorgeous properties that are pet welcoming. And these dog-friendly destinations all have that extra je ne sais quoi when it comes to our pets.



Travelling abroad with your pet is easier than ever and so we’ve been road-testing the best doggie modes of transportation. These forms of transport all provide our four-legged friends – and us – with a stress-free and pleasant journey as we cross the water.




What better way for your four-legged friend to be greeted than by their very own doggie hotelier! These resident dogs know all the best spots for your furry friend to check out and will even share their toys.

It’s not enough for us to just praise a hotel, so we’ve turned to you – and your pets – to reveal your top dog-friendly destinations. From welcoming hosts and attentive staff, to fabulous pet packs in the room and wonderful places to walk, these properties tick all the boxes. And these are your words, not ours!
