Step 1: Find a dog friendly B&B in Bournemouth

We have single and family rooms in Bournemouth that are cosy yet affordable, with an option for a hearty, popular English breakfast.

Step 2: Find a dog friendly Christmas dinner in Bournemouth

Urban Reef is a beautiful seaside dog friendly restaurant overlooking Boscombe bay. Their Christmas menu looks particularly delicious this year, packed with a full turkey roast, slow roasted Dorset lamb and vegetarian options. Prices start from £15 for a 2 course lunch or £28 for a 3 course dinner.

Step 3: Attend dog friendly Christmas events in Bournemouth

Don’t miss out on the much-loved Bournemouth Christmas market, packed with festival gifts from around the world, traditional hot roasted chestnuts and the Moose bar for a glass of mulled wine. Wander down from the market to the gardens, which will be illuminated with fairy lights, snowflake projections and coloured uplighters, until you reach the Bournemouth gardens ice rink where you can skate under the stars!

A town isn’t complete without a pantomime, and the Bournemouth Christmas Panto is definitely a show stopper. Buy tickets here for Cinderella at the Bournemouth Pavilion Theatre, running from the 3rd of December 2016 to the 2nd January 2017.

Step 4: Find the perfect dog walk

Bournemouth is a heaven for dogs, with the beach and the New Forest close by. Walk your dog along the beach promenade up to Alum Chine, a few minutes’ walk downhill from Brooklands dog friendly B&B, or venture into Delph Woods to let them off the lead and explore.
