About this property

The Lion at Wendlebury is perfect for dogs and their owners seeking a relaxing retreat in Oxfordshire. Stylish, yet decidedly simple, this wonderfully dog-friendly hotel blends modern comforts with traditional charm. With stunning decor and a cosy bar room, the hotel is inviting, and welcomes four-legged guests with beds, bowls, blankets, and belly rubs, as well as plenty of tasty treats! There are some cracking sights to sniff out in the surrounding area, including the beautiful, Blenheim Palace, making the Lion the perfect base to begin a wonderful walking holiday with your furry friend. In need of some retail therapy? Head to the famous Bicester Village for discounted designer wears. Or, if rural walks are more your style, explore the rolling hills of the neighboring Cotswolds. Pop into the chic university town of Oxford for a relaxing afternoon, and return to the Lion for a tasty brew before the roaring fire for a quiet evening. 

Dine with Your Dog

Leave your furry friend to rest in your room and trial the Lion’s restaurant. With a chic dining room and a delicious menu, the restaurant is a real treat, offering up snazzy takes on pub grub favourites. Sink your teeth into ale-battered haddock, or try a delicious plant-based vegan burger. If you’d prefer to dine with your dog, you can enjoy your meals in the rustic bar room, and cosy up before the fireplace with a tasty pint or cocktail. There's also a peaceful terrace available for al fresco dining in warmer months.

Bow wow factor

Four-legged guests will be showered with treats and attention from the superb staff and will receive a bed, blankets, and bowls upon arrival - guaranteeing a cosy stay for your hound.
