Hotels for Happy Doggies in South West England: Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire
Dog Friendly Hotels in the Gloucester area
The Editor Says: Gloucester may be a city, but that doesn’t mean it’s not a great place for doggies. 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.
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.
