The Wentworth

The Wentworth

Aldeburgh

When the Aldeburgh Festival launched in 1948, Michael Pritt’s family had already run The Wentworth for 28 years, and it is this continuity and timelessness of their 'very well-managed' seafront institution that so appeals to many of our readers.

Prince Hall

Prince Hall

Dartmoor

A dramatic setting for weddings, family gatherings or a special celebration, the moorland views are just part of the allure of this isolated Georgian mansion, where former visitors are said to have included Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Was he inspired here to write The Hound of the Baskervilles? Possibly. No need to venture far, though. In 7 hectares of private gardens and grounds, the whole house is for hire on a self-catering basis and offers a pack of comforts. There’s a fully equipped farmhouse-style kitchen, leading out to a BBQ area with seating, a large dining room, relaxing lounge with log fire, a lobby and a games room with a pool table, darts, table tennis and football. The hot tub and infrared sauna make relaxing diversions. Twenty people can be accommodated in nine simply decorated bedrooms (extra beds can be arranged). One has a super-king four-poster, another a sleigh bed and ‘lovely view across the moor’.

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.
