Dog-Friendly Holidays in the Cotswolds

Choosing the perfect holiday for you and your family is a really important decision and this is especially true if you want to bring your dog(s) with you. Here at Orion Holidays, we know that a dog is an important member of the family and so your holiday accommodation has to work for them as much as for you.

That’s why many of our stunning holiday cottages and lodges are pet-friendly, providing you with the same level of luxury and contemporary finishes, but the peace of mind that your dog or pet is welcome. Each pet is just an additional £25 per stay.

Dog-Walking Haven

The Cotswold Water Park is larger than the Norfolk Broads, covering 40 square miles, with over 150 lakes and many miles of footpaths and wooded areas to explore. It offers a multitude of different walks to take your dog on and hours of fun for you and your family to discover all that Water Park has to offer.

Circular Walks

The Cotswold Water Park website details some great circular walks that start from an accessible 2km to the more challenging 18km. Routes are signposted and have the benefit of being flat and well-maintained. Or you could find the source of the Thames and walk further afield following the Thames Path.

It is recommended that dogs are kept on a lead and that they should not be allowed to swim in the lakes as this impacts the wildlife all year round. See our top 10 walks in the Cotswold Water Park.

Pet-Friendly Pubs

Of course, after a muddy walk, or perhaps to break up your long 18km expedition, you might want to find a cosy Cotswold pub and have a drink or a bite to eat. There are plenty of lovey dog-friendly pubs and restaurants to choose from and the Cotswold Life site has reviewed the ones that they think are the best.

Planning Your Holiday in the Cotswolds

Use our interactive map and discover all that this stunning area has to offer you with our Around and About guide. You’ll find picturesque market towns and villages, sporting activities as well as conservation and wildlife areas.

We’re Here to Help

Whether you are looking for a relaxing spa holiday or an active walking and exploring holiday, we’re here to help you find the perfect holiday accommodation.

We pride ourselves in going the extra mile for our clients, so please call us on 01285 861839 if you have any queries or concerns about a holiday with your much-loved pet.
