Are you looking for something new and exciting to do with your hound?

We have some fun ideas and places to treat yourself and the hound in your life to!

Attractions to Visit:

The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust allows dogs in the grounds for Shakespeare’s Birthplace, Hall’s Croft, Shakespeare’s New Place and Anne Hathaway’s cottage (expect Marys Arden’s Farm due to livestock).

During warmer months take and picnic and enjoy the weather! On the 25th August you could even try entering your hound in the Shakespaw’s Day! Visitors also receive 30% off single house tickets when they bring their hound.

Fancy a guided tour?! The Stratford Town Walk and Ghost Walk also welcome dogs!

If you and your hound feel like taking in some history Kenilworth Castle also accepts dogs on leads.


Places to Stay:

The Fish Hotel. Nestled in the Cotswolds, this hotel is a sister hotel of The Dormy House Hotel.

With a collection of three hotels, The Dormy House Hotel, The Fish and Foxhill Manor.  All with selected rooms where dogs are can stay.

The newly renovated Fish Hotel has really gone the extra hound mile. Accepting up to two medium sized, well behaved pooches 1 year and older. The hotel offers dog friendly rooms and suites.

The Fish have thought of everything from arrival with rooms having easy access from the car park.

Rooms decked out with wooden floors, all the stuff a hound needs to kick back and get into that holiday vibe!

Comfy beds, their own towel, dog bowl and of course some tasty treats!

Stepping outside onto 400 acres of Cotswold countryside to enjoy and explore!

Of an evening you and your hound can relax in the bar or lounge. And enjoy the tasty food!

As if this wasn’t enough The Fish is bringing in a dog agility course this Spring to enjoy.

A charge of £30 per dog per stay. Hotel info here

Places to Eat & Drink

The Fish hotel allows dogs in the bar and lounge.  A great location tucked away in the Cotswolds.  Treats are always on hand at The Fish.

Dogs are also very welcome at The Fleece Inn, both in the pub and bedrooms.  Surrounded by countryside in the beautiful village of Bretforton, customers can enjoy a walk and then relax back with a drink.  The pub also offers dog treats and sells locally made Pont & Pierce dog treats, Pawsecco and Dog Beer.  Very cool!!!

Here are some local pubs that allow dogs:

The Bell at Alderminster–  the bar always has a stock of treats and water bowls for your hound.

The Kings Arms in Mickleton allows dogs in the bar, they have a lovely beer garden for warmer days!

I hope you have enjoyed this blog post and hopefully found some new places to visit!
