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.

Jane Vanschagen, October 2021

Developing Dogs cottages has amazing facilities for dogs, especially for those that are reactive to other dogs. Their is a large garden that adjoins to a large field. The field can be booked in 45 minute blocks for independent use, enabling your dog to have total freedom.

The cottage gardens are all set with at least a metres space from the neighbours garden. Which is perfect for our reactive Jack Russell.

The cottage have all the facilities to make for a relaxing holiday including a log burner, a hot tub and a very comfy, spacious bed.

Super setting with luxury accommodation for canines and humans alike with every possible need catered for

Rosemary McDonagh, September 2021

They have put so much thought into the needs of our dogs from bowls and treats to blankets for the beds and sofa, towels to dry off and secure, private gardens. Add in private access to secure fields from the gardens if the properties just about makes a holiday here perfect. Not forgetting the option of booking some 121onsite training. What more could our dogs ask for
