Barking with The Bard: The advantages of staying in a pet-friendly hotel near Stratford upon Avon

Stratford Upon Avon is synonymous with Wiliam Shakespeare, and while it attracts its fair share of visitors each year, it’s also an attractive location for holidaying and sightseeing with your four-legged friend.

Whether they’re culture fiends, love the allure of the open field, or it’s good food that really gets their bark going and tail wagging, your pooch can do far worse than booking a stay in one of the most visited places in the UK.

If your pet could talk to you, there are likely many things they’d want to say, but top of that list is that they, too, would love to get away from home and spend more time with you outside your everyday life. Plus, breaking one treat in half does not equal two treats; that’s an important bit of information you need to know.

Luckily, you can find a host of pet-friendly welcoming establishments that are happy to host pets and their humans, providing they, too, are well-behaved!

Will My Dog Like Stratford Upon Avon?

After all, they’ve never shown an interest in Shakespeare, nor is visiting Grade 1 Listed buildings high on their to-do list. But that doesn’t mean your furry friend won’t enjoy all the amenities Stratford Upon Avon offers, far from it.

But what they will enjoy during a trip to Stratford upon Avon is

  • Dog-friendly pubs, cafes, restaurants. Dogs and food go together like Romeo and Juliet, but without the tragic ending.
  • Open spaces and tours. Stratford upon Avon is home to some stunning views and beauty posts, which your dog will enjoy to stretch their legs, and sniff to their hearts content. You can take them for a walk to Shakespeare’s birthplace, stroll along the river Avon, wander around the town or head 5 miles out to Charlecote Park, a landscaped deer park that The National Trust maintains. Dogs can’t enter the house; however, they’re more than welcome on the grounds.
  • Taking a boat ride. Avon Boating hires out a range of vessels for your water babies and allows your pup to see Stratford upon Avon from a different point of view. Dogs are welcome in vessels for a unique doggy day out. Plus, they’ll look extra cute in their life jackets, too, for those really important dogstagram pics!
  • Off-lead fun. While most walks and attractions require your furry companion to be kept on a lead at all times, for those who need time off lead to stretch their legs, you can head to Welcombe Hills and Clopton Park. A 60-acre reserve in close proximity to the town is a peaceful mix of grass and woodlands that will delight the senses and give your dog the ultimate off-lead experience.

In short, if those puppy dog eyes begging you not to leave them at home isn’t enough, there are many wonderful reasons why you need to bring your canine best friend with you on your trip to Stratford Upon Avon.
