Taking your dog for a walk is one of life’s simple pleasures, and when it comes to your choice of where to go, the UK has it all; wonderful woodland walks, mountain hikes, lakeside ambles and coastal strolls. Finish it off with a cool, refreshing drink and a luxury stay at one of our dog friendly pubs with rooms, and you’ve got yourself one memorable weekend away.
Pet Friendly Pubs
Let’s be honest, there’s nothing like watching your favourite four-legged friend run free through gorgeous open countryside. Whether it’s a solitary ramble or a family affair, it’s a glorious way to experience the world together. But, all that exercise can be thirsty work – so where better to head than local pet friendly pubs where you can stay the night – pooch included.
It’s true – boutique pubs are welcoming dogs with open arms, making mini breaks for pet owners one chic affair. And of course, it makes sense with so many pubs near walking routes. So, now not only can you sink down into a comfy chair by a crackling log fire with your best friend stretched out beside you, or bask in a sunlit beer garden as your dog recovers from its extended rural walk, you can do it in style with the dog friendly pubs accommodation.
So, what do dog friendly inns offer? In many cases it may be more than just a cold bowl of water after a long walk. Think plush towels to dry their muddy paws on, a cosy, luxurious bed to sleep in, tasty treats on arrival, dog walking and sitting services. You’ll find some even offer a doggy gastro menu so now your little friend can enjoy their meal as much as you. And don’t worry about compromising on style – even the most dog friendly pubs with rooms are adorned in Farrow & Ball colour schemes, stripped wooden floors, resplendent rugs and ensuite bathrooms you’d expect in a luxury hotel. You might even find yourself in a little cottage within the pub grounds.
Now you just need to decide where to go. Why not stay at one of the pretty villages dotted around the Jurassic Coast, go where you can take a breathtaking walk through the wild Yorkshire Moors or the heathlands of the New Forest? Maybe your dog prefers a dip on a hot summer’s day when strolling around the Lake District? The UK is perfect dog walking territory, and when there’s some good gastro grub and a luxurious bed to retire to at the end of the evening, all’s right with the world. So, sweep up your gastro pug and head out to one of our dog friendly pubs with rooms for your next escape – it’ll soon be Yappy Hour! Sorry, we couldn’t resist…
