If you’re planning a holiday for the whole family, why not take a look at our dog-friendly hotels in Dorset? For starters, it’s one of the best places in the UK for four-legged friends - thanks to the endless countryside and coastline that’s just waiting to be explored. Visit historic market towns like Dorchester and Christchurch, take in the views at Bournemouth and Poole Harbour, and head to local attractions - Durdle Door, Lulworth Cove, Corfe Castle and Chesil Beach.
Dorset is great for its dog walking opportunities in the rolling countryside and beyond. Your furry friends are sure to love splashing around the Dorset coast and the nearby natural beauty is definitely worth a picture. There are also plenty of dog friendly establishments such as pubs with a doggy menu and activities like Swanage Railway and Corfe Model Village.
When you’re not out and about, you’re sure to feel right at home in one of our dog friendly rooms too. From guest houses and summer lodges to country house hotels and boutique accommodation, there’s a Dorset hotel for everyone - and their dog. Many of them are located close to the incredible Jurassic Coast and the Dorset countryside. Some overlook the river and others are just a short walking distance from the action.
Choose from luxury suites and family rooms with large beds, great views, room service and private outdoor space. Some hotels even have hotel spas, swimming pools, and direct access to the best walking routes in the surrounding countryside. And don’t forget about the doggy welcome pack and dog beds as well as a dog wash station for your furry family members.
We even have the popular White Hart in Sturminster Newton, Captain’s Club Hotel, Moonfleet Manor, and the Seaside Boarding House to name a few. From contemporary rooms to Jacobean manor houses, we have a range of dog friendly accommodation to really make it a staycation to remember. One thing’s for sure, everyone will be spoiled here and you won’t forget it in a hurry.
