If you went back 5 years, dog friendly luxury hotel breaks in the UK were practically non existent. Fast forward to 2014 and I’m happy to hear of more and more places that welcome dogs. As a dog loving nation, it’s always puzzled me that dogs are banned from so many places, leading us to leave them at home when all they want is to join us on our adventures. If you’re looking for a stay-cation this year and want Rover along for the ride, you’ll like this…
Highbullen Hotel, Golf and Country Club – a luxurious estate in the heart of the North Devon countryside – is set to get tails wagging with the announcement of its new “Highbullen Hounds” package, now available at the hotel.
Pampering pooches as much as their owners, dogs will be barking mad not to enjoy all the treats in store during their stay. Offering dog’s dinners that are anything but, as well as a doggie bag full of treats during the stay, guests and their owners will be well prepared for a relaxing weekend filled with fine food, spectacular walks and unparalleled comfort.
The ‘Highbullen Hounds’ package is for guests staying in the hotel’s four dog friendly Forester’s Rest rooms. It costs from £299 for two people plus a dog, and includes:
- In-room dog bed with blanket and lead
- Two course “Dogs Dinner”, which includes Chicken Casserole and Sirloin Steak with Vegetables and Jus
- Doggie gift bag of toys and treats tailored to size of dog (small, medium or large) including:
– Bag for waste
– Tennis ball
- Walking map of Exmoor
- Two nights for two owners on a Dinner, Bed and Breakfast basis
- Additional dogs are £25 per night
As well as the rolling hills, rivers and woods all on Highbullen’s doorstep, nearby there is also the wilds of Exmoor to explore and some of the best coastal walks in the UK, along the South West Coast Path. North Devon is a dog-walkers playground, and many more maps are available at the hotel – with the shortest a half hour route around the hotel and village and the longest a walk on Exmoor, taking in the highest cliffs in England with views over the Bristol Channel to South Wales.
