Cotswolds Pet Friendly Cottages

cotswolds pet friendly cottagesThe Cotswolds is a stunning area of the UK and it's easy to see why this place is popular for UK holidays.  Many people who choose to visit the Cotwolds stay in self catering accommodation such as a cottage to give the freedom to come and go and explore the local area at your leisure.  Cottages are a real home for home and there are some delightful places to stay in this region which are very pet friendly too.

The Cotswolds will suit those who enjoy outdoor activities and scenic walks and there can scarcely be a better location for walks than the Wolds.

Some recommended long distance trails include the Cotswold Way which is an ambling 6 mile walk, and the Gloucestershire Way which winds its way through the Cotswolds and branches off into many miles of bridleways and footpaths.  We think this is the perfect location for holidays with dogs, especially larger dogs who require plenty of walking.

And if you fancy a change from walks there are plenty of local attractions to explore.  You don't have to leave your four legged friend back at the cottage as these Cotswold Days Out are pet friendly.  See below for out pick of the best.

The cottages we feature offer a high quality and comfortable base for your stay so you can enjoy days out exploring then return to your cosy home from home in the Cotswolds.  For s stunning location we like Lake View cottage which is actually an annexe to the Owner's main residence.  This lovely cottage sits within 25 acres of woodland and there is even a fishing lake.  Pershire is just 3 and a half miles away.

For parties of 6 we like Kingfisher Lodge in Gloucestershire which is a detched timber lodge on the fabulous Cotswold Water Park.  This area is perfect for walks, water activities and cycling at any time of the year. 

For a well laid out barn conversion then Bull Pen in Wiltshire provides a cosy retreat for two.  This pet friendly accommodation is just 4 miles from the historic town of Malmesbury and you could visit Malmesbury Abbey, the Cotswold Water Park, or  take a trip to view the interesting gardens at Westonbirt Arboretum in the region.  This cottage can be booked with Ref 5791 to sleep 4.  One well behaved pet welcome and must be kept on a lead at all times.  Also in the Wiltshire region we like Farm View Cottage which is a charming cottage perfect for couples.  One interesting aspect about this cottage is the location on a working livestock farm.

Pet Friendly Days Out in Cotswolds
Dyrham Park
This National Trust property in South Gloucestershire is located in a dramatic deer park on the edge of the Cotswolds. Some must do activities include following the park trails, enjoying family fun in the Old Lodge Play Area and discovering the park and garden Tracker Packs. You should also take time out to find out about the gorgeous 17th-century home of William Blathwayt, who was a hard-working civil servant who thrived during the political upheaval of three monarchs. If you like fashion then you may be interested to see how fashions changed from century to century. There is an exercise area for dogs at the far end of the car park.
Buscot Park
Buscot Park is the family home of Lord Faringdon, who looks after the property on behalf of the National Trust, as well as the family collection of pictures, furniture, ceramics and objets d'art, known as the Faringdon Collection, which is displayed in the house.  Enjoy exploring both the house and the grounds and learning about the history of the family.  In order to make the most of your visit to Buscot Park you might like to discover the vast and well maintained gardens that surround the late-eighteenth-century house.  These include the spectacular Four Seasons garden containing colourful spring bulbs, trees and lilies depending on what time of year you visit.  There is always something beautiful to admire and of course the woodland walks are a real treat leading to one of Britain’s finest water gardens.
Newark Park
Built in 1550 as a Tudor Hunting Lodge, this is a fabulous place for a pet friendly day out. The impressive building which was added to in the 1790s was later converted to a Georgian home and is still lived in today.  The house is located within 14 acres of beautiful and rather romantic gardens and surrounded by glorious countryside. The position, perched on the edge of a cliff offers amazing  panoramic views. Open air theatre productions can also be enjoyed here from time to time. Dogs are welcome in the grounds but must be on leads.
The Great Barn
Located in the peaceful Great Coxwell Village, The Great Barn is a good option for a dog friendly day trip in the Cotswolds. The amazing structure is the only surviving part of a 13th Century Grange and is a fine example of Gothic architecture. The barn has been admired by many. Indeed William Morris described it as "unapproachable in its dignity". Dogs on leads are permitted.
The National Trust Brockhampton Estate
Consists of over 1000 acres of farmland and 700 acres of mixed woodland so is ideal for those with energetic dogs to walk. The estate is a haven for many species of wildlife and there are miles of walking trials and paths to explore. A beautiful timber manor house lies at the heart of the estate and visitors can see the great hall and learn about life in the 1550s. There is also a family room where little ones can enjoy crafting activities. Dogs on leads are welcome in the woods, grounds and parkland.
Hailes Abbey
A fantastic place for a day trip and the family pet is welcome too. Dogs on leads are welcome you can enjoy walking your pet around the impressive ruins and imagine how the monks and brothers lived some 750 years ago. We recommend bringing a picnic along during the summer months. Dogs on leads are welcome.
Sherborn Estate
A stunning Cotswold Country Estate affording stunning views over the river Windrush. Within the grounds are a 17th Century grandstand, a deer park and a unique sculpture trail which visitors can follow. The park is open from the 13th March - 1st November and is particularly popular during the summer months when the grounds are at their best. Dogs on leads are welcome and there are two dog waist bins within the grounds.
Woodchester Park
One of our favourite pet friendly places in the Cotswolds as the location in a secluded valley is so beautiful. The impressive valley is wooded with criss-crossing paths offering spectacular views. Most of the park is owned by the National Trust and is a haven for wildlife. The valley is also home to the remains of an 18th Century landscaped park, a stunning mansion and 5 lakes. Dogs are welcome but must be kept on leads when requested.
