If you’re looking for somewhere a little more unusual to stay with your dog, look no further! We’ve put together a guide to some of the UK’s more unusual dog-friendly accommodation, from cottages to hotels and beyond...
The Globe, Warwick, Warwickshire - show buffs will love staying in a former theatre!
First opened in 1788 as the Globe Inn Commercial & Posting House, The Globe in Warwick is situated on the corner of Theatre Street, between Warwick Castle and Market Place. In the early 1800s, this Grade II listed building became a theatre hosting pantomimes and plays, and until the 1960s was accessible via an iron bridge spanning a ravine-like street named The Holloway.
West Stow Pods, Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk - Glamping offers the alfresco sleeping experience, with a few more creature comforts of home, and with this Suffolk-based site, you can try a range of accommodation.
Choose from four cosy MegaPods, two Woodland Lodges and the star attraction: Pod Hollow; a halfling-inspired subterranean dwelling nestled in the side of a grassy knoll. Two of the MegaPods can accommodate dogs, and both lodges and Pod Hollow are dog friendly to a maximum of two dogs.
Hillfort Tipis, Goodwick, Dyfed, Pembrokeshire - Glamping in the Pembrokeshire Countryside.
Sticking with the glamping theme, Hillfort’s family and dog-friendly site offer Yurts discreetly sited below the spectacular outcrop of Garn Fawr in the Pembrokeshire countryside. Each Yurt has its own campfire and there is plenty of fresh milk, eggs, local smoked fish and meat available on request.
Canal Town Stone, various - If a place to stay on dry land is too mainstream, why not try some floating accommodation?
Pets are welcome aboard the Canal Cruising Company’s boating trips, and there are several choices of routes on offer, including an energetic week with the Four Counties Ring visiting Shropshire, Staffordshire, Cheshire and the Midlands. An easier week, the Cauldon, offers lift bridges, tunnels, a river, steam engines and the Churnet Valley. Three to four day shortbreaks are available. Available on a two to eight berth vessel.
Malmaison, Brighton, Sussex - If you enjoy the water but don’t have the sealegs for a canal cruise holiday, a stunning hotel right on the marina might be a better choice.
The four-star Malmaison’s Bar and Lounge area are both dog friendly and there are many stunning walks into Brighton, Rottingdean, The Southdowns or around the Marina.
Counting Sheep Campers, Berwick-upon-Tweed, Scottish Borders - For the ultimate doggy road trip experience, dog friendly campervans are the ideal way to explore with your dog and maintain an element of freedom.
Counting Sheep’s modern VW campervans offers visitors the chance to explore Scotland in one of their comfortable two or four berth vans. The vans are easy to drive and are perfectly suited to the narrower Scottish roads.
Craig Y Nos Castle, Brecon Beacons - For the ultimate luxury stay with your dog, look no further than this stunning Welsh castle.
Located between Brecon and Swansea in South Wales, Craig Y Nos Castle aims to offer a truly dog friendly experience, with dogs allowed everywhere on site, including in the bar for drinks and food and in a variety of dog friendly staying rooms. Craig Y Nos is ideally located for walks with plenty of mountains and streams, and within easy distance of a dog-friendly beach.
