A Dog Friendly Guide to The Cotswolds

Wednesday, 11 October 2017

Although we live in the gorgeous Wiltshire countryside, the beauty of the Cotswolds is right on our door step. Being one of our favourite places to visit over a Weekend, or even just for a day trip. With so many dog friendly places to visit, stunning locations and picture perfection around every corner, The Cotswolds is a great place to visit with your pooch.

How To Get There
The Cotswolds is spread out over many different Counties (including Wiltshire) with lovely towns and villages ready to explore.
Although public transport is doable, it will be a lot easier to have a car to get you around and make the most of your time in The Cotswolds.
Having a car to pack everything (plus the dog), allow easy access to walks, and get you to some of the prettiest places will make for the best trip.

Stay
Log House Holidays
Located near Cotswold Water Park area, Log House Holidays are stunning, luxury self catering log cabins set on gorgeous lakes. With kayaks, hot tubs and peace and quiet right at your door step, it's really everything dog friendly you need from accommodation. Even better there is no dog limit, so bring the whole pack.

Old Stocks Inn
Just want to stay 1 night? Old Stocks Inn is interior heaven, with a cosy factor of dog friendly luxury. Not only are the drinks amazing, the dogs get fussed over like they're just as important as the humans. With easy access to most Cotswold towns, based in the gorgeous Stow on The Wold.

Eat
Coach House Coffee
A sweet dog friendly cafe in Stow on The Wold, great for lunch or even just coffee and cake. An independent coffee shop that sells healthy snacks, milkshakes and the best cake in the Cotswolds [there, I said it!]

The Maytime Inn
The perfect pub for anything from a roast dinner, to a lighter lunch. Mix it together with a cosy feel for the colder months but trendy and beautiful for all year round. Dogs can join you at the tables, and you may even get to meet the pub dog, Alfie.

Cafe 53
A really unique cafe that allows four paws to join. Stop for lunch and try the amazing burgers with a smoothie or just for a quick cake and maybe a glass of wine.

Visit
The Doghouse Pet Shop & Cafe
Hands down our favourite place to visit, not only is it the best independent pet shop around, it's gorgeous and they serve pupacinno's- that the dogs adore.
Shop for the pooch and stop a refresh and coffee (for human and hound) after walking the gorgeous Bradford on Avon canal.

Cotswold Inn & Hotels

  1. Such a beautiful post, your dogs are adorable and the photos really show off their character. Loving the originality of this post too. I enjoy going to a dog friendly café near where I live, I miss having a dog of my own though! :-) xx
