Dog Friendly Holidays

We know your pet is part of the family, that’s why your four-legged friend is always welcome on one of our dog-friendly holidays. We have a wonderful range of accommodation available, from cosy dog-friendly cottages to award-winning contemporary houses with hot tubs at Lower Mill Estate.

You can holiday in style in the heart of the Cotswolds, safe in the knowledge that your pet will be welcome when you arrive. We like to pamper pooches as much as we do their owners, so everyone is welcome at our sustainable on-site restaurant, Ballihoo and even better they have some delicious treats to share with your pooch, as well as a brand-new dog-friendly menu!

The scenic nature reserve also offers ample room for your pets to explore, run and collect sticks and  (unfortunately) find many muddy puddles! We do ask that you keep them on their lead so they don’t disturb the animals living on the Estate whilst they explore though. The wildlife-adorned surrounding area of Lower Mill Estate is well known as a pet-friendly destination. Why not plan an adventure in the Cotswolds countryside, coupled with a well-deserved treat at one of the local dog-friendly pubs.
