Take a doggy holiday to remember in Cardiff, where you and your pup can explore the lively city canvas to your hearts content before taking in the glorious natural wonders of the surrounding area.
Treat yourselves to a day of spoiling at Mucky Pups Grooming Spa and Boutique before spending some quality time together taking a long walk along the Ogwr Ridgeway, a 15 mile stretch that lets you absorb Cardiff’s stunning scenery. There are riverside paths so if your dog is anything like mine you might want to save the pampering until after the walk !
Bute Park and Arboretum is another great place to explore with your dog, offering an extensive area of mature parkland, 3 cafes and is just a short walk from the city centre.
If you’re in town during the summertime, you might even catch the South Wales Dog and Family Fun Day or Kate Humble’s Big Day Out, where you can enjoy a day of fun and activities for pups and their pals. Both events are dog friendly and there will be plenty of opportunities to make some new doggy friends.
Then, why not chow down in one of the cosy dog-friendly bars or restaurants around the capital? You could sample the classic pub fare of The Heathcock or the more inventive dishes at The Pilot, with each place keeping bowls of fresh water at the ready for thirsty canines. The Pilot (included in the Michelin Pub guide) overlooks Cardiff Bay and offers a range of guest ales, fireside sofas and an excellent menu.
After a day of exploring you can head back to the dog-friendly Angel Hotel, where you’ll find comfort and convenience thanks to its plush and sophisticated interior and city-centre location. So bring yourself, your family, and your pup to Wales’ Capital City and enjoy a holiday designed for pets and owners!
