3 Dog Friendly Hotels in Cheshire

3 Dog Friendly Hotels in Cheshire


Your dog can enjoy a weekend away just as much as you do, but because you can’t explain to your dog what is going to happen, you need to be aware that change can be unsettling for your pet.  Ensure that your dog is comfortable with car travel before you set out and bring along familiar toys, treats and their water dish.  Try to maintain your usual walking and feeding routines and if you have any health concerns about your dog be sure to visit your vet before you set off.  

Dogs are more likely to have accidents in unfamiliar surroundings so you should also consider insuring them, as this will ensure your dog will receive the medical treatment it needs and will protect you from unexpected medical bills.  

Remember, you should never just turn up at your accommodation without having checked if they are dog-friendly beforehand.  Thus, here are three delightful Cheshire hotels which cater for dogs, though of course, you will still need to make the establishment aware of the fact that you will be bringing a dog when you make your booking.

Willington Hall Hotel


This grand country house hotel with good connections to Chester, Warrington, Wirral, Manchester, Nantwich, Crewe and Tarporley, offers magnificent views over the Cheshire countryside.  The spacious elegance of this country retreat is popular for parties, events and private dining, or you might choose to book in for afternoon tea. Set amidst beautiful gardens, this is a wonderfully luxurious and relaxing environment where you and your dog can enjoy a breath of country air and some very fine dining.

Wizards Thatch at Alderley Edge


You’d be hard put to find a more romantic hideaway than the extraordinary luxury suites at the Wizards Thatch.  This ivy-drenched cottage, which dates back over four hundred years and takes its name from a local legend, has been frequented by rock stars, actors and even a government minister.  Its three five- star luxury suites are a riot of leather furniture, antique prints, four-poster beds and memorabilia as well as all the modern appliances you could wish for. The heavy timbered low beam ceilings and cosy sumptuously furnished interiors offer a complete escape from the modern world. The Wizards Thatch is also conveniently located just a short walk from the bars and restaurants of Alderley Edge.

The Pheasant Inn


Nestling in the Peckforton Hills, this atmospheric location offers panoramic views across the Cheshire plain to the Welsh hills.  An alehouse since the 1650s, this five-star accommodation now offers twelve en suite bedrooms and boasts an AA Rosette for the quality of its food.  Its oak beamed bar offers a range of real ales and fine wines and features in the Good Beer Guide, The Michelin Good Pub Guide and the Egon Ronay Guide.  With its attractive sandstone buildings and its quirky oak beamed interiors, this is a restful rural retreat, perfect for you and your canine companion.
