Lucknam Park, Cotswolds: Britain's loveliest luxury hotel for dog lovers

Looking for the perfect hotel for a dog-friendly staycation? You'd do well to consider a Wiltshire country house hotel that loves to welcome guests who enjoy the finest things in life - and their four-legged friends, too.


Surrounded by acres of fields, meadows and woodland, Lucknam Park is a Cotswolds retreat that goes all out to accommodate both you and your four-legged friend.

Here, your dog can wander through misty woodland, along bubbling brooks and through flower-filled meadows. You'll be able to relax and rejuvenate in a glorious setting, while your dog enjoys some fantastic facilities too.

There are dog-friendly rooms (up to two dogs allowed, £25 per night per dog) that are decorated with antiques and soft furnishings, as well as a grooming area to spruce up your pooch after walks in the vast grounds.

Other facilities to make sure you and your pet have a relaxed and happy stay include special doggy dinners, bedding, fleeces, crates, towels and bowls provided by the hotel, and dog-sitting – available for a small fee.

But it’s not just the facilities inside that make it a fabulous dog-friendly hotel. Set in 500 acres of grounds, Lucknam Park is surrounded by fields, woods and meadows where you can head for long walks and let your dog explore to their heart’s content.

Plus, once they've trotted off their energy and are ready for a nap, you can make use of the hotel’s wonderful spaces, which include a luxurious spa, a tranquil heated pool and a Michelin-starred restaurant.

In fact, elegance is the name of the game at Lucknam Park from arrival, when you’ll make your way along a magnificent tree-lined driveway towards the classic creeper-covered English manor house, to departure.

During your stay, you can relax in the wood-panelled lounge, read a book by an open fire or find a cosy corner to enjoy a drink from the bar. More informal, but nonetheless first class, dining can be enjoyed in the Brasserie, while the Restaurant Hywel Jones crafts local produce into exquisite Michelin-starred creations.

There’s plenty to do nearby, too, with the picturesque Roman city of Bath and the mystical ancient monuments at Stonehenge, for example, both within about an hour’s drive.
