Dog Friendly Hotels around Gloucester

The Editor Says: Gloucester may be a city, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a great place for doggos. Wander round the city and stretch your legs at Glevum Way park or Gloucester Park itself. More importantly, there are places like Crickley Hill Country Park just a short drive away, and we’re also welcome on leads at Great Witcombe Roman Villa (should your owners get the urge to stare at old stuff). Oh, and you could always pick up a section of the fabulous Cotswold Way National Trail which runs between Chipping Campden and Bath.
