Dog-friendly places to stay and visit

Here in Ashford and Tenterden we recognise that your pet is a big part of the family and they want a holiday too! As well as accommodation and places to visit that will happily welcome your dog, we are especially lucky to be surrounded by beautiful countryside here in the Garden of England.

Ashford and Tenterden boasts access to many of the major routes through the county including the North Downs Way, Stour Valley Walk, the Pilgrim's Way and the Saxon Shore Way.  There are also numerous woodlands and open spaces for you and your pets to discover together - take a look at Walking & Cycling.

Some attractions are happy for dogs to enter the grounds but you may not be able to take them into the attraction itself, please do check before your visit to avoid disappointment.

We want you and your furry friend(s) to have a safe and enjoyable holiday with lots of happy memories, please respect the Countryside Code to help ensure your visit is an enjoyable one.

Ashford Designer Outlet is a dog friendly centre. With its open air mall and specialised doggy water fountain, the centre welcomes your well behaved four legged friends in many of the 90 designer brand stores.  Just look for the dog friendly paw print in the window.
