Gone are the days of leaving your furry friends at home with more and more hotels allowing dogs. Holidaying just got a whole lot easier, and we’ve highlighted some of our favourite dog-friendly hotels from across the UK to help make your next trip even more special.

1. L’oscar London

For those looking for a city break in the capital, we highly recommend L’oscar in Covent Garden.  A central location with fantastic transport links, some of London’s best sights and not to mention the opulent hotel itself.

Rooms are adorned in luxurious golds, deep reds and rich purples with a heavy influence of Renaissance style décor. Any pooch would be lucky to stay in such extravagant surroundings. Just a stone’s throw from some of London’s many gardens, this is the perfect spot for a city break with your dog. Explore the city or sneak away from the chaos and visit London’s largest public square, Lincoln’s Inn Fields.

Small, well-behaved dogs are allowed to join their owners and they’ll even provide a luxury dog bed, food and snacks for your furry pal. A flat fee of £50 will cover your extra guest and be sure to speak to the bookings team in advance to secure your room and extras.

Over in the Lake District you’ll find the exciting and unique getaway that is Another Place. A destination for sport lovers, you can enjoy all this boutique stay has to offer with your puppy by your side. Choose from cottages, shepherd huts or one of the 40 gorgeously designed bedrooms.

With so much available on the grounds there is plenty for you and your dog to enjoy. The Lake District is a permanent playground with endless space, footpaths, trails, lakes and rivers all waiting to be explored.

With access to 18 acres of secluded National park, you have the opportunity to take your furry friend on some unforgettable walks. Dogs are also welcome in The Living Space bar and restaurant and the Glasshouse, so they can be by your side the whole trip.

Well-behaved, house-trained dogs per room, charged at £15 per night with options if you have 2 pups.

3. Grove of Narberth 

Wales is renowned for its rolling hills and stunning views and Grove of Narberth is no exception. This beautifully restored three-storey Jacobean mansion sits within 26 acres of Pembrokeshire countryside and Preseli Hills.

With six dog-friendly rooms to choose from you and your pooch are guaranteed a wonderful time with plenty of access to private gardens and the local scenery. There’s even a number of dog-friendly tables in the snug section of the Artisan Restaurant.

4. Wild Thyme & Honey 

Tucked in the Cotswolds village of Ampney Crucis, you’ll find the boutique country inn, Wild Thyme & Honey. With access to local countryside and a babbling brook, this quaint corner of the UK is perfect for a chilled getaway with the pooch.

24 earthy bedrooms are available to choose from, all with unique and cosy accents like exposed brick walls and neutral palettes. Ground floor rooms at the hotel are dog friendly with dog beds provided as well as attentive pet loving staff on hand throughout your stay.

Visiting on a muddy day? Not to worry, the hotel supplies guests with Wellington boots to ensure you can still enjoy the beauty this village has to offer no matter the weather. Dogs have access to the whole hotel, and your pal will get a dog bed, bowl, blanket their very own Bramley’s ‘Digby Dog House’ when staying.

5. Padstow Townhouse 

If you’re visiting the stunning seaside town of Padstow, be sure to book you and your furry friend into Padstow Townhouse, the luxury hotel owned by much-loved chef and television personality Paul Ainsworth.

The boutique hotel features six uniquely styled suites that are filled with luxurious furnishings and, of course, indulgent treats for you and your dog. Choose from two dog-friendly suites situated on the ground floor of the luxury boutique hotel with all the creature comforts a dog could desire!

Walks along the sea will provide you and your dog with some well needed tranquillity, not to mention the stunning views.
