We all love to get away from it all at times and that includes man’s best friend. There is nothing more uplifting than seeing your pet pooch run across the open countryside or dive into the sea to cool off. With an increasing number of dog friendly hotels available, there is no reason why one of the most important members of your family should be left out of the fun when you go away on holiday. We have a great selection of luxury dog friendly accommodation and have selected just a few of our favourite picks!
Loyton Lodge, Tiverton, Devon
Loyton Lodge offers a modern take on the English country weekend. An exclusive, rural retreat with accommodation for groups of up to 20 guests, the lodge is a great place to get together for a party or reunion. Those looking for a quieter break can book rooms individually on a bed and breakfast basis. Guests are encouraged to make use of the whole premises during their stay; you will find a relaxing atmosphere with a cosy and contemporary interior.

At the end of the day, your 4-legged friend can relax in front of the open fire whilst you can enjoy the billiard room, bar, or sitting room with TV.
