Dog-friendly holidays in the Cotswolds

With its picturesque towns and villages forged from local limestone, award-winning pubs and restaurants, and fabulous local produce, the Cotswolds is one of the country’s leading holiday spots.

As well as being the perfect retreat for us, the region’s undulating hills, miles of open countryside and wooded valleys are perfect for our four legged friends too.

We welcome dogs to a wide selection of holiday cottages in the area from the grand, nine-bedroom Manor Farmhouse to The Tack Room, a cosy cottage with acres of surrounding space for your pet to blow off steam.
