How many pets are you bringing? Decide how long you are going to be staying. Where in Wales do you want to stay? Also, try to create a partial itinerary of all activities you are planning to do there as well as the spots you want to visit.
Do Your Research
To help in finalising your itinerary, research the most famous dog-friendly tourist spots and activities in Wales. It is also essential to take into consideration the weather during your stay. It will help you decide on what you should do every day that you are there. Moving around would be extra hard for you since you need to find dog-friendly places to visit.
You should also look into the average prices of cottages in the area. This way, you will have an idea of the ballpark rates of places you can rent there.
Ask Friends for Recommendations

Doing this will help you understand what to expect when you are already staying there.

Contact the Owner of the Cottage
Once you have found a couple of cottages that suit your needs, start contacting them. Whether you like it or not, it is vital to call the owner before you book the place. Usually, these people do not write everything into the description of their listing.
Talking to them can help you clarify things and ensure that they have what you need and the place is what they said it is. Ask the right questions.
In the end, choose the cottage you think is best for your group and the pets that are coming along with you.
