Stroud Area

Dog Friendly Hotels around Stroud

The Editor Says: Although the fantastic Cotswold Way passes just to the west of Stroud, there’s much more to this neck-of-the-woods than just the famous National Trail. After all, the National Trust have several dog friendly sites in the vicinity including Woodchester Park, Minchinhampton and Rodborough Commons, Haresfield Beacon and Standish Wood. In fact, there are hundreds of paths and tracks all over the area so you’ll only be a stone’s throw from somewhere great to have a snuffle about and sneaky wee wherever you stay.

The Falcon, Painswick

The Falcon at Painswick

This 11 bedroom inn claims to have a heritage stretching back as far as the 16th century, although the existing building dates largely from the 1700’s. Either way, it’s a splendid house within a splendid village, and also boasts a popular restaurant. Stroud is just a few miles away to the south.

Paws Policy: The Falcon welcomes well behaved dogs free of charge subject to availability of suitable rooms.
