This charming county is steeped in history, with the remnants waiting to be explored from crumbling castle ruins, to roman town walls and battlefield sites to coal mining museums. Take your pooch for walkies round the walls of York, enjoy some retail therapy or wander down ‘The Shambles’ – a winding cobbled street with wonky overhanging buildings that wouldn’t be out of place in a scene of Harry Potter. When it comes to hiking or cycling, the Yorkshire Dales is the place to be, where the landscapes are as broad as the county’s dialects. Marvel at Malham Cove – a huge limestone cliff now home to peregrine falcons or follow the Ingleton Waterfalls Walk. Alternatively, visit Yorkshire’s other national park – the North York Moors that cascade down to the coastal towns of Whitby and Scarborough where you’ll find many dog friendly beaches. After roaming the dales, stop off at Salami & Co – a café that has its very own ‘hound menu’ where your dog can indulge in a puppachino or pupcake. Here are the top 15 dog friendly hotels in Yorkshire…
