DogPeople Says : The Castle Hotel

Murphy visited for lunch in September 2015. There was only time for a brief visit but his man enjoyed a pint of real ale and a cheddar and Branston sandwich (with salad trimming). We sat in the first bar nearest the door – cosy and comfortable – there's also a bigger ‘back bar. The gardens are dog friendly too; we are sure it would have been good to have spent a longer time here if we’d been able.

Key Info:
Dogs are very welcome throughout the bars, gardens & public areas. We have a large enclosed garden with small wooded area for you to exercise your pet, and we are well away from busy roads so you can relax and enjoy your holiday together. There are lots of great walks in the surrounding fields and hills, and maps and walking guides are available in reception.

If your pet has special dietary requirements we will be only too pleased to help. We try to have as few rules as possible for our doggy guests, but as a courtesy to other humans we do have requests and other useful information : Pets are allowed in the garden, but please clean up any mess left behind. Waste bags are available from behind reception. Please note that there is a small but deep pond in the garden which pets are not allowed in.
