Best dog-friendly hotels in the Cotswolds 2023

Best dog-friendly hotels in the Cotswolds 2023

The Cotswolds is a haven for dog owners, especially those who love a good walk. This bucolic region of England – where green pasture is dissected by stone walls, and where small, smartly kept villages with golden-stone cottages and thatched pubs dot the landscape – has some of the finest gentle walking routes in Britain. Alongside the famous 102-mile Cotswold Way, there are footpaths and bridleways aplenty, where you can lose yourself amid the verdant countryside.

Beyond walking, though, there’s lots to love if you’re bringing your pet for a dog-friendly stay in the Cotswolds: see the remains of Roman villas at North Leigh, explore the manicured Blenheim estate in Woodstock, or take the whole family to a wildlife park in Burford where even the dog gets to meet a rhino or two.

If you’re planning a trip to the Cotswolds, here’s our pick of the best dog-friendly hotels the area has to offer.

This luxury pet-friendly hotel even has a dog agility course in its grounds

(The Fish)

If you’ve got an active dog on your hands, a trip to The Fish might be just what they need – and it’ll no doubt please you, too. This luxury hotel sits on an estate on the edge of Fish Hill, overlooking the small but pleasingly sepia-tinged town of Broadway. The hill itself offers energy-sapping walks, thanks to its steep-sided slopes, while, nearby, you can tackle Broadway Hill, home to the handsome Broadway Tower, which is part of the Cotswold Way. Even better, right within the hotel’s grounds, you’ve got an agility course to tire out your little fluffy friend before you settle down to dine in the bar, where Cotswolds gin awaits.
