In a world of four legged friends, puppy love is not just reserved for high school sweethearts. For many of us, no one is a more loyal companion than our dogs, and taking them on your spa break makes the whole experience complete.
Knowing this, there are a growing number of dog friendly spa hotels where pets are allowed to join their owners for a couple of days of down time. While owners relax in the spa, dogs are welcome to stay in the beautiful rooms and suites, roam the grounds and perhaps join them for dinner. They may even be welcomed with their own treats such as dog bowls, biscuits and sometimes a cosy bed, all for a small supplementary fee.
Amongst the most luxurious dog friendly hotels has to be Luton Hoo Hotel. Surrounded by 1065 acres of land, this is as much a paradise for pets as it is for people. You potter off and have your spa treatment, and for a supplement your pooch can chill out in the gardens and will also be given a bed and dinner.
Other dog friendly spa breaks will take you to Spread Eagle Hotel and Spa in picturesque Midhurst, and Fairmont St Andrews, which offers the option of a Pets Perks Package. Raithwaite Hall Country Retreat is amongst the hotels that allow dogs, who delight in the surrounding gardens which are superb for running around in. And if you head to Tylney Hall you will find a hotel that takes dogs and gives them their own basket, blankets, bowl and chewy toy to enjoy during their stay.
That’s just the start…
