The study by pet insurers Petsure also found there are 30 dog-friendly hikes in the city and that 39 per cent of pubs and bars permit dogs.

Pet insurance expert and dog owner Allie Simpson said: "When packing for a holiday with your dog, double-check you have everything you need to keep them comfortable, safe and happy.

"Essentials include your pup’s lead, harness, and collar with an ID tag.

"Don't forget bowls for food and water, plus enough food and treats to last the trip."

Lymington was listed as the ultimate place for a dogcation followed by Bournemouth in second place.

Whitby and Dartmouth were also ranked in the top ten.
