For many, a holiday isn’t a holiday without their dog. If you’re looking for the perfect pooch-friendly getaway – with a little bit of luxury and plenty of places to go walkies nearby – Inn Places have compiled a list of the top 10 dog friendly inns around the UK. Let’s take a sniff…
Inn at Cranborne, Dorset
Their resident dog loves to meet visiting canines and there are no access restrictions as long as they are ‘well spoken’. With dog treats on the bar, dog-friendly bedrooms, a canine breakfast of bacon and sausage included and miles of beautiful walks nearby, this is the perfect weekend retreat.
The Cholmondeley Arms, Cheshire
Treat your canine friend to a ‘dog beer’ (a meaty stock-based drink) as well doggy treats which are available in a jar on the bar. Three of their bedrooms are dog-friendly and dog beds are supplied too.
Rose & Crown, Co Durham
Non-muddy dogs on leads are welcome inside the inn, and there are facilities for washing down and drying
resident canines (at no charge). Even the doggy treats are made locally so your best friend can eat like a king!
The Bull & Swan, Lincolnshire
This beautiful inn takes dog pampering to a whole new level with its very own doggie room service menu featuring steak, chicken and other pooch-pampering morsels. And it will be well deserved after a walk by Rutland Water, with its breathtaking wildlife, lakeside paths and pretty views.
Ship Hotel, Norfolk
Pamper your dog at the Ship Hotel, which offers your furry friend their very own bed, towels and bedside
snacks in six of the rooms. Dogs can happily roam around in the main bar and garden.
The Fuzzy Duck, Warwickshire
All-access is bestowed upon your canine friends at this Costwold retreat, with dog biscuits behind the bar, and even a doggy welcome pack when you arrive.
The Chequers Inn, Lincolnshire
With a dedicated doggie page on their website and long communal tables specially designated for dog owners in their restaurant, this is a great inn to stay at with your canine friend.
Kingham Plough, Oxfordshire
All dogs get their own canine bar snacks in the form of pigs ears and are welcomed in the bar and in two of their bedrooms.
The Talbot, Northamptonshire
The ground-floor rooms are all dog-friendly for small to medium-sized pooches, and you get a doggie bowl and
treats in the room.
Lord Crewe Arms, Co. Durham
Dogs are loved at the Lord Crewe Arms and visitor’s dogs are often featured on their Twitter page. They’re
welcome in the bar where they have dog biscuits on hand, and a dog bed by the fire, and they’re also welcome in 14 of the rooms.
