The Old Forge – Norfolk
The Old Forge has been converted from the original 18th century working building with the original two forges still in place. Almost every room has exposed beams and there are many areas of original brick and flint walls.
They know how difficult it can be to find holiday accommodation which offers quality and comfort for both you and your dogs, especially if you have more than one or two, or they don’t fit the small category! Their own pack currently consists of three Lurchers and five Deerhounds, so they definitely understand dog owners’ needs!
Stein's At Trevone Farm – Cornwall
Located in the sleepy village of Trevone just outside of Padstow is Rick Stein and Jill Stein's collection of self catering holiday homes. The four properties (one sleeping 8 and three sleeping 6) have all been individually customised and designed by Jill Stein.
Following a coastal inspired theme, the properties have a homely feel to them where you can kick off your shoes and instantly feel relaxed. Outdoor showers, barbecues and al-fresco dining furniture make them perfect for summer stays, while the wood burning stove, oversized sofas and large collection of tempting reads make them the perfect winter getaway.

You've earnt a special escape, a little TLC.

Their cottages are converted buildings from the working farm that served the St Beuno Monastery which dates back to the 7th century. The eight stone cottages offer outstanding views in all directions. From the paddocks in front of the cottages you get a spectacular view of Caernarfon Bay, Anglesey, Holy Island and the imposing Three Rivals mountain range.
Chase Lodge Hotel – Surrey
At Chase Lodge Hotel they love dogs. If someone is nice enough to look after one, then they're the type of person they'd like in their hotel.

They have been voted The Best Hotel in the Region for the past three years, according to the independent reviews on Trip Advisor, the world's largest travel website.

There's even a dog-friendly pub at the end of the street. Number of dogs by negotiation.
