Canines in the Cotswolds - your Dog and the Country House Hotel Experience

Dogs get on well in the Cotswolds… the destination is probably one of the most dog-friendly in Britain, with a long tradition of pubs, hotels and public spaces that encourage dogs and their owners. There are after all, 3000 miles of footpaths and bridleways in the area, varying from the 101 mile Cotswold Way down to the short walk between Upper and Lower Slaughter villages - recognised as ‘instant Cotswolds’ for visitors.

Upper Slaughter is the home of Lords of the Manor, a 17th century Manor House Hotel that was recognised as the Good Hotel Guide 'Editor’s Choice’ Dog Friendly Hotel of the Year in 2019. The hotel has 26 rooms, two highly rated restaurants and bar, games rooms and lounge. There’s always a quiet corner to settle down for coffee or dinner.

Kelly, the hotel’s Front of House Manager feels that the size of hotel is important when considering which might be best for a pet-friendly stay. “Too few rooms and your dog might be competing for space with other pets; too many rooms and you’ll find yourselves with strange stairs and corridors to negotiate. We’ve found that the relaxed Country House atmosphere at Lords, seems to relax dogs (and their owners) very quickly! It helps too, that we have our own 8 acres of gardens and lawns - plus a village centre location in one of the quieter Cotswold villages".
