Dog Friendly Hotels in Bristol
The Editor Says: Just because Bristol is a city doesn’t mean there aren’t some grand places to mooch about. Leigh woods, on the opposite side of the Avon Gorge from Clifton, is a popular place for four legged residents and visitors alike, while Overscourt Wood to the east of the city is similarly favoured by many Bristolian hounds. Oldbury Court Estate to the north east is popular with families and their doggies, too. Mind you, I’ve no idea really, and I’m only getting this stuff from google.
Booking Online: Making a reservation with Booking.com or LateRooms.com is easy and convenient. When doing so it is important that you make clear your intention to bring your dog in the “special requests” box so that the hotel or inn is made aware in advance. Please note that our “Paws Policy” information is for approximate guidance only and that the hotel, inn or bed and breakfast’s actual policies may change at any time and/or be more comprehensive. We play no part in the actual booking process.
