Across the UK hotels, inns and pubs with rooms offer guests and their canines just that.

From a 17th century hotel on the edge of the Peak District National Park to a manor house that inspired Sir Arthur Conan Doyle to write The Hound of the Baskervilles. From a clifftop haven on the South Devon coastline to a riverside retreat in the New Forest National Park. While gardens, woodland and coastal paths keep dogs and their owners entertained, the hotels offer comfort in the form of a welcoming environment, fires to rest by and sometimes even biscuits, bowls and dog beds to enjoy as well. There’s even something for their owners.
