Dog Friendly Break

Bournemouth Beach Lodges are perfect for your four-legged friend to enjoy exploring, meeting pals, digging holes on the beach** and playing in the sea.

We welcome two well-behaved dogs and 12 of the Lodges* are dedicated to being dog friendly (including our accessible lodge). There is plenty of room for your dog’s basket, toys and treats. Walkies begin right at your front door and with over 15 miles of coast to explore right on your doorstep, where do you head first – the rugged Hengistbury Head to the east or sophisticated Sandbanks to the west? Wherever you go on your canine adventures, there will be plenty of dog-friendly cafes and pubs along the way, so no one will go hungry.

Tails will definitely be wagging…

“Mark and Karen kindly took me with them on their recent break at Bournemouth Beach Lodges, where I had the most amazing time!! I arrived to find I had my own dog bowl and even a tasty treat! During the day, we went for long walks along the lovely promenade, where I sniffed out exciting new smells and made lots of new friends. I made best friends with Lucy the Labrador next door and we spent our evenings running in the sand and playing on the beach, which was only a ball throw from my basket!! The Beach Lodges gets two paws up from me and I can’t wait to return!”

*All we ask is that your dogs are kept on a lead around the site and are not left unattended in your Lodge. It’s £20 per stay and your Lodge is deep cleaned before you arrive and after your stay.

**As per the Bournemouth Beach Guidelines, we regret that dogs are not permitted on the beach directly opposite the Lodges from the period of 1st May – 30th September. However, the nearest dog friendly beach is located only a 10-minute walk from the lodges (less than 1 mile) at Fisherman’s Walk beach heading East towards Southbourne.

*Bournemouth dog friendly zones

Between 1st May and 30th September, dogs must be kept on a lead on the promenades and paths at all times, and may only be exercised on the following sections of beach:

  • Branksome Dene Chine, Poole to Alum Chine Beach Office
  • Middle Chine to Durley Chine
  • Fishermans Walk, Southbourne
  • Hengistbury Head

Please take a look at our Dogs on the beach map for more information.
