We’ve a great variety of homes for you to stay in across the UK that will fit you and your dog down to the ground. Check out our list of rural stays – the ideal choice for those looking for long rambles in the countryside, or properties that come complete with a hot tub – but that’s more of a treat for you than the dog.

Country Houses

You don’t need to be from the manor born to get a taste of the high life, and many of our luxury properties are delighted to accept your dog too. On top of that, you’ll find that our manor homes need not blow the budget. Ideal for large groups, you can take the whole gang or the entire family away for a fraction of the price. Don your best tweed and take your fine canine companion for a stroll around the grounds at our pick of the finest luxury stay.


A trip to the countryside is no doubt one of your doggy’s dream destinations, but it’s best to check up on the local area beforehand to avoid any issues. If your canine companion needs plenty of room to stretch their legs, we’ve got a selection of homes with dedicated outdoor spaces to ensure your pet stays safe and sound.

Hotels and B&Bs

Many of our properties are fully-equipped with beds, bowls and all the trimmings. Your faithful friend will also be cordially invited to dinner, allowing them to never leave your side.
