Developing Dogs Holidays

Developing Dogs Holidays: A luxury break where dogs are welcomed. There’s no limit on the numbers of dogs we welcome at Developing Dogs Holidays, and we don’t charge extra for dogs or have rules about where they can and can’t go in the cottages.

Each of our three cottages is designed with dog and human comfort in mind. We provide throws for sofas and beds, and towels to dry them off after a swim in our ponds (in the 8 acre field that’s available for your exclusive use each day), or if you’ve used the hydrostatic outside tap in your garden to wash them down after a walk. Each cottage has a large, properly secure garden with 6ft6in fences, and stands in its own plot so there are no shared fences. Hare cottage even has its own private paddock.

Our beds are large and comfortable with fluffy duvets and a choice of pillows. Our kitchens are well stocked, with good quality equipment (and sharp knives!). Perfect for you to relax and enjoy the best holiday ever – or so our previous guests tell us.

And the views from the rear of the cottages are spectacular. The big skies of the Fens are sight to behold; and our rural location means no light pollution. Perfect for a bit of star-gazing from your hot-tub – we did mention the hot tub, didn’t we?

Despite our rural location, we are just 5 minutes from the historic city of Ely, 20 minutes from Cambridge and an hour’s drive to the wonderful Norfolk beaches. The best of all worlds.

Developing Dogs is a lovely place to stay. The cottage has an amazing bathroom, the shower is the best I've ever had. In the living room their is a log burner to enjoy during the colder months. A spacious garden with a hot tub with over 6 foot fences. The garden leads directly onto an enclosed field that can be booked for your own exclusive use for your dog to enjoy running free ?

The cottages aren't far from Ely. Ely is so pretty and has so.much to offer if you want beautiful scenery, good food and a little shopping.

Absolutely fabulous place to stay in general but especially if you have a reactive dog, they've thought of everything!

Shirley Wright, October 2020

These cottages are addictive! When possible, we stay with Developing Dogs at least twice a year.All three cottages are perfectly presented with EVERYTHING ..& I mean EVERYTHING!..for dogs & humans. No extra costs incurred for multiple dogs.

Plenty of walks from the doorstep, not forgetting the 8 acres of secure grassland that is bookable throughout your stay.
