Nine of our Best Dog-Friendly Properties with a Hot Tub
When you plan a holiday break for a crowd, that usually includes the dog (or dogs). And when you want to feel that your four-legged friends are welcome while also ensuring that you don’t compromise on luxury, that can be a difficult balancing act. That’s why we’ve pulled together a list of our top nine dog-friendly properties with a hot tub. We know that those all-important luxuries are not up for negotiation.
1. Merbach Hill House, Herefordshire
The wood-fired hot tub at Merbach Hill House offers you a chance to escape for a while and reflect on how good life is, as you soak up picture-perfect views across the Wye Valley. This delightful dog-friendly property, sleeping up to 18 guests is close to the famous book town of Hay on Wye as well as some good dog walking territory in the Black Mountains, Offa’s Dyke and Wye Valley itself.
2. House on the Moat, Suffolk
The House on the Moat is a cosy, Tudor, dog-friendly cottage for up to 12 guests, close to the coast in Suffolk. Here, you can take to the water on a little rowing boat or spend some peaceful hours fishing for roach, rudd or carp. Beyond the moat, there’s a 5,000 acre estate for you and the dog to explore and, later, you can wind down in a hot tub beneath the stars.
3. Green’s Hill House, Somerset
Can there be a lovelier landscape than the rolling Quantock Hills in Somerset? And can there be a more well-appointed property in the Quantock Hills than Green’s Hill House? In our view, no. And the view from the house makes our point. With 15 private acres to explore, the dog will be in heaven and you will enjoy views that will stay in your mind’s eye long after you return home. And…almost forgot…there is a hot tub too!
4. Barford Beach House, Cornwall
Does your dog love beaches? If so, they are going to love Barford Beach House, where there’s a little gate to a secret beach, far from the crowds and restrictions of the nearby resorts. This dog-friendly Cornwall beach house is every inch the modern party pad, where, after a day down on the beach, you can let your hair down in your own private bar and sip your cocktails in the outdoor hot tub.
5. The Wholehouse, Wales
The Wholehouse has been described by guests as ‘idyllic’ and it’s easy to see why. With a games barn, cinema room and a shepherd’s hut playhouse for the children, it’s perfect for a family get together. And with spectacular views in the daytime, and dark, starlit skies at night, its position in the Brecon Beacons is unrivalled. It’s dog-friendly too and there’s also a wood-fired hot tub. What more could you want ?
6. Horseshoe House, Wiltshire
A former pub, Horseshoe House has been renovated with style and a touch of quirkiness. There’s a games room with pool table, ice hockey, table football, table tennis and darts, and there’s a grand piano, a bar (of course), and the all-important outdoor hot tub. With the gently rolling Cotswold Hills on your doorstep, it’s also a great place to bring the dog.
7. Rippon Hall, Norfolk
A gorgeous country manor with a swimming pool and hot tub, Rippon Hall is hard to beat as a luxury property for a family get-together or friends reunion. A classic country manor house, there’s a billiard room, an elegant dining room and formal gardens. Beyond the gardens, the dog will love the sights, sounds, and scents of the wild flower woodlands.
8. Riverbank Inn, Devon
Here’s another sensitively converted pub, this one a thatched, riverside hostelry in Devon. Riverbank Inn is a now dog-friendly Devon cottage for up to 29 guests. There’s a proper bar area where you can recreate your best pub nights, two acres of gardens along the riverbank which the dog will love, and an outdoor hot tub sunk into the decking, from which you can stargaze.
9. Cailean House, Scotland
Cailean House sleeps 18 (plus an extra 8 with the addition of Cailean Lodge) in Aberfeldy Perthshire, Scotland. Enjoy the views down into the valley, in the wood-fired natural cedar Hot Tub, large enough for up to 12 guests to enjoy.
