We love having dogs come to stay here at Lords of the Manor and, as such, we want to make sure that they have the best stay possible!

To help you and your mutt make the most you stay here at our dog friendly hotel in the Cotswolds, we have compiled a list of our 3 favourite dog friendly walks nearby. These pretty paths will not only give your pooch plenty to sniff around, but are also full of beautiful and intriguing sights for you to see too! Here are our hot picks for pooch friendly strolling in the Cotswolds:

Croome Park

This stunning Capability Brown designed garden has plenty of stories to tell, and plenty of places to explore. Though dogs have to remain on leads in the formal gardens, there is plenty of open parkland that they can explore off lead. If you want to make the most of the dog friendly areas of Croome Park, then take a look at this brilliant trail laid out by the National Trust. The route will take you past the Rotunda, a classically Georgian ha-ha, RAF Defford, as well as many other interesting sights.

Chipping Campden Trail

Chipping Campden is a quintessentially charming Cotswolds town. Filled with the archetypal sandstone cottages. a plethora of superb local and independent shops and surrounded by rolling English countryside, Chipping Campden is the perfect place for you and your pooch to take a leisurely Sunday stroll. National Trails offer a delightful 4½ mile route through and around the town, which will take you through shaded woodlands; across rolling hills with stunning views; and into the quaint town of Chipping Campden itself. This route is ideal for those looking for a picturesque and laidback walk, with plenty of interesting sights to see along the way.

Broadway and the Tower

Another wonderfully picturesque and undemanding route to try, is this Nation Trails walk through the village of Broadway and up to the ancient tower that overlooks the village. The impressive structure of the Broadway Tower commands breath taking views out over the Severn Vale and into Wales. This walk is 4 miles of delightful scenery and plenty of places for your pooch to romp freely. The tower truly is the showpiece, and definitely worth a visit.
