The Lakeside Yurt

Cotswolds
Sleeps 2

If you're looking for an utterly unique holiday destination, the Lakeside Yurt has it all! Overlooking a fishing lake, on the edge of the village of Beckford, this 16' round, open plan yurt is stylish, beautifully designed and pet-friendly. It even has its own hot tub - and sits within easy reach of Evesham, Cheltenham and the Cotswolds.

Guests can use the owner's swimming pool and even take a rowing boat across the lake! Take your bikes with you and enjoy the many paths and cycle trails across the surrounding countryside - the nearest shop and pub are just a few minutes' walk or an easy bike ride away.

The Lakeside Yurt has a fully fitted kitchen, dining and sitting area, a roll-top bath, underfloor heating and a wonderful wooden verandah with beautiful views across the lake. You'll also have use of the owner's field with firepit - perfect for an evening barbecue.

Nearby, Cheltenham has a great range of shops, cinemas, theatres, restaurants and pubs. And Broadway, in the Cotswolds, is a beautiful place to visit - it dates back to Roman times and has some top class art galleries and some lovely places to eat. Beckford itself has a good country pub and an unspoilt nature reserve.

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.
