A Spinone on the Northumberland Coast (#2)

Sadly, the holiday is behind us now – holiday weeks are always the shortest of the year, aren’t they?

Warning! This post seems a bit like a travelogue. But it might help fellow travellers feel confident to visit the area with their dogs.

We had a great time. Great company, beautiful scenery, plenty to do, and good dog-friendly options. The weather was very kind, but the cold wind needed treating with respect. We were impressed with our holiday home, which had nice little ‘extras’ which we kept finding as the week went by. Although we were a little less excited about the immediate locality, we did love the old part of Beadnell, the harbour and the wonderful beach. It formed the perfect base to explore the area, which we would heartily recommend as a holiday destination. We stayed with a company called Stay Northumbria (www.staynorthumbria.co.uk) and are happy to recommend them!

A Spinone on the Northumberland Coast (#1)

What a great few days!

The journey up to Northumberland went well. Ozzie had a good walk just before we left, and after a brief clean up he was keen to leap into the back of the car, knowing full-well that we were off on a trip. He has a fair bit of boot space to himself in the back, and usually settles down once we reach any speed. We don’t use a crate – although we did when he was a puppy.
