If, like us, you don’t want to leave your pooch at home whilst you travel, then we have the perfect solution.
The travel industry has finally cottoned on to the fact that we love to take our dogs with us wherever we go – whether that be to the office or out for dinner. So why should a mini-break away be any different?
We’re not talking dingy B&Bs with cat hair on the pillows, but luxurious hotels that boast style and ease for both you and your pup.
The Scarlet hotel, Cornwall
The Scarlet Hotel doesn’t just allow dogs, it embraces them. With homemade doggie treats on arrival, dog bowls, blankets and waste bags provided and even a dog friendly ‘unique’ luxury hotel suite that will occupy your pup whilst you visit the spa. Your dog will be in its element walking down the endless sandy cliff side, and you can take some time for yourselves later tasting the stunning food, created by executive chef Tom.
Prices start from £210 for bed and breakfast and dogs are £15 per night extra, scarlethotel.co.uk
The Gallivant, Camber Sands (East Sussex)
If your dog loves the beach, then look no further than this bijou hotel (with just 21 rooms) that is situated alongside an eight-mile stretch of golden sands. The Galivant’s Dog Lovers Escape package includes two nights in an idyllic room, complete with white washed sheets and grey beach hut aesthetics, and plentiful amounts of food for both you and your pup to dig into.
Treat your pup (only one dog allowed, unfortunately) to a day of lead-tugging in and out of the cobbled streets in Rye, or to endless dog treats if food is more their thing. As for you, you can indulge in a happy hour that boats a giant pot of tea served in china mugs with a slice of freshly baked cake every day at 4pm.
£330 for two nights, thegallivant.co.uk
