About this property

Nestled within the Tudor town of Lavenham, dog-friendly The Swan in Suffolk is a blend of old and new with its timber beams and contemporary comforts. A great dog-friendly spot to while away the weekend with your four-legged friend, The Swan is within easy reach of Sudbury’s water meadows. Pack a picnic for a fabulous dog-friendly day out! On days when you’re not exploring the beautiful Suffolk countryside with your pooch, stop by the hotel’s in-house spa for some extra pampering.

Dine with Your Dog

Pets can join you in the Brasserie garden or can be left to relax in the room while you dine. You can choose the Gallery Restaurant, the modern Brasserie or al fresco dining in the courtyard terrace. All the menus use fresh seasonal ingredients and have a number of raw, dairy-free and gluten-free options. If you want to venture further afield, there are various local dog-friendly pubs – we recommend the Lavenham Greyhound which is only a four-minute walk from the hotel.

Bow wow factor

The Swan has a secure garden, perfect for early morning and late night strolls, or for romping around in on sunny days!
