What is it that makes the Cotswolds such a dog friendly region? The wonderful villages and the rolling hills are likely to be a pretty good start! That’s all the more reason for hunting down a lodge, cabin or two in the area where you and your pup can head back to and relax.
From Stow on the Wold to Bourton on the Water, there are some brilliant properties and lodges up in the Cotswolds which are well worth booking into. Want to explore the wide open expanses with your pets? Find a lodge that does it all and gets you closer.
We can’t stress this enough – the Cotswolds might just be one of our number one favourite dog holiday destinations in the whole of the UK. Where else will you have access to AONB sights and sounds across the Wessex Downs, and still have access via car to explore the Brecon Beacons? How many regions in the area offer this number of waterside and country walks for you and your dog to enjoy?
As well as the Cotswolds offering its own Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, there are also scores of lovely villages and towns nearby which really take you deep into that quaint English scenery you’ve likely only read or heard about from afar! Some of our favourite towns and spots in the area include Moreton in Marsh, Chipping Campden and Bourton on the Water. There are some fantastic market town scenes out here, taking you back to an age where we all relied on regular market stalls for our daily produce!
There are also clear routes towards the cities of Gloucester and Bristol, and you’ll also find it easy enough to head out towards the spectacular Stratford Upon Avon, also known as the Shakespeare capital of the world. Find wonderful riverside dog friendly pubs in the Cotswolds and the location even serves up Shakespeare’s own house, where you can learn more about the legendary playwright.
The area is replete with lovely walking routes and country lanes, and what’s more, there’s always likely to be a Grade II listed building or two nearby that you can marvel at. Who knows – if you don’t fancy a lodge for you and your dog, there might even be a Grade II listed building you can stay in!

Consider what you’re looking for from that perfect cabin or lodge. You may want mod cons such as Wi-Fi, a DVD player or smart TV. You might also be looking specifically for a ground floor open plan living area, ideal for stretching out and relaxing in, and great for groups of varying sizes.
Why not look for a ground floor living area, an enclosed garden and an open fire? An open fire really does finish the look for many log cabins in the region!
