April Fools! Why don't you experience the real thing?

Our holiday breaks

Introducing the UK’s first pet exclusive holiday resort

Designed with your pet in mind

Give your VIP (very important pet) a well-earned break from the humans of the household with the UK’s first exclusive pets-only holiday resort for dogs and cats tucked away in picturesque Bath. Set to open later this year, Darwin Escapes are leading the way with this revolutionary development. Yappy Days Resort & Spa will keep your pet’s tails wagging.

“We’re delighted to announce that we are developing the UK’s first pet exclusive holiday destination, Yappy Days Resort & Spa.” said Jack Russell, Head of Innovation & Park Development, Darwin Escapes. “There is a growing demand for pet friendly accommodation and we see this as a natural progression of our current offerings throughout the UK.”

April fools, sorry!

But fear not, because Darwin Escapes still offers you the chance to enjoy pet friendly holiday breaks in luxury locations across the UK with your furry friend. Make your booking today!

Activities & Facilities

Purrrfect holidays your pet will never forget.

We provide an exhilarating range of activities and top quality facilities available on-demand or as part of a pre-planned daily itinerary. If your dog or cat is a stickler for routine, we can create bespoke activity timetables they can follow as and when they please.

Swimming Pool

Our swimming centre includes a bone-shaped pool and mud jacuzzi for the dogs. Our exclusive Shake ‘n’ Dry area is kitted out with white sofas so your dog can shake themselves dry over the furniture until their heart’s content. Cats and kittens will love our catnip relaxation pods for the ultimate chill-out experience situated next to the pool.


Our Playmates Team are on call 24/7 for all your pet’s recreational needs. We use the finest hand-crafted mahogany sticks, Wimbledon-grade tennis balls and 100% Angora wool balls for your pet’s playtime. We have 4 large play paddocks and an indoor activity hall where your pet has full access to obstacle courses and more.


After an action-packed day of walkies and fetch, dogs can enjoy our bespoke petting service complete with belly rubs and head-patting sessions. We know cats can be solitary animals, that’s why we have our amazing Leave Me Alone sessions. Our trained specialist will leave your cat with an interruption-free environment for their chosen amount of time.

Romantic Breaks

For all pet couples old and new, we provide the best romantic breaks. Whether the happy couple has been hard at work looking after their new litter of puppies or they just fancy some time alone, Yappy Days Resort & Spa is the place to be for your pets.

Fine Dining

Choice cuts, lots of treats, fresh seafood are on the menu all day, every day for the dogs and cats. We serve the finest gourmet cuisine from Pooch & Mutt including treats, dog food and health supplements. Yappy Hour is all day, every day at Yappy Days Resort & Spa – we stock tipples from Paw A Pint brewery so we can serve your pet animal-friendly beers and wines so your pet can relax in style.

Long Walks

Our park is spread over 10 acres of land and surrounded by safety fencing. The paddocks, woodland, hills and beach guarantee your dog the best walk ever. Cats are encouraged to roam free but can be put on a leash if required. There are a number of lamp posts and dustbins with various scents around the area to stimulate your pet’s senses.


Choose from spacious log cabins, private luxury rooms and holiday homes. Our luxury accommodation has been specially designed by leading holiday home manufacturers including ABI, Willerby, Carnaby and Prestige. All accommodation includes a comfy bed, storage space, designer food and water bowls, flat-screen TV showing Animal Planet and a choice of toys. Rooms are decorated with unique themes such as pirates, outer space, princess, vintage glamour, rainbow, jungle safari, wild west and many more. There’s a theme to suit every kitty and pup!
