Family on the beach with dog

Bringing your Pet on Holiday

Book Direct

We know how hard it can be leaving your dog in kennels so you can go on holiday, they're often considered part of the family. We therefore allow dogs to stay with you in most of our UK resorts.

As you'd expect there are a few rules we ask owners to follow and there is an additional charge to allow for specialist cleaning following your visit to avoid upsetting future guests with pet hair allergies.

You can bring a maximum of 2 dogs to stay with you in the following UK resorts:

  • Macdonald Lochanhully Resort
  • Macdonald Spey Valley Resort
  • Macdonald Forest Hills Resort
  • Macdonald Plas Talgarth Resort

Macdonald Elmers Court Resort only accepts registered Guide Dogs or Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.

There is a fixed additional fee of £75 per apartment per stay, regardless of duration. This fee is payable on arrival at your resort. This does not apply to guests travelling with registered Guide Dogs or Hearing Dogs for Deaf People.
