Why would you holiday without your best friend? Forget smuggling your pooch into a hotel room or settling for anything less than pure luxury just because you're on holiday in the Cotswolds with your dog.
These six holiday cottages in the Cotswolds prove that you and your pet can have the holiday of a lifetime together while living it up in luxury.
Situated in the picturesque village of Stanton, a short drive from Cheltenham and Stratford-Upon-Avon, Shepherds Hay is a two bedroom property that accommodates up to four people, ideal for couples. Like all the best dog-friendly properties, it has a delightful garden at the back for those late-night needs.
The Old Bakehouse
This wonderful converted barn in North Leigh will comfortably sleep up to four people, and features a first class kitchen, complete with original bread oven (you have to try this). It is dog friendly, offers easy access for the disabled, and is beautifully appointed inside.
Located on the edges of the Notgrove Manor Estate, this delightful barn conversion features stylish modern interiors, and can sleep up to eight guests in its four bedrooms. It shares a games room with a few other holiday properties, making it an excellent choice for families, and local pub (The Plough) is within easy walkies distance!
One of Nailsworth's most historic buildings awaits with this stylish, smart apartment The Nailsworth. Set close to the heart of this often over-looked Cotswolds' town and once the original railway station building, this super stunning holiday home is the result of a total and sympathetic renovation; large Victorian rooms give an airy feel with a contemporary twist creating an exceptional holiday home that's perfect for a family or for couples looking for a high end Cotswolds' experience.
What a stunning holiday cottage! Bridge Barn offers so much as a holiday home that it is hard to imagine this not being a place you choose to return to once you've been the first time. Perched on the edge of hill and with incredible views down the Slad Valley, this beautifully presented cottage has undergone a huge transformation which not only takes advantage of its awesome position, but internally provides every possible luxury you could want for a holiday.
No 8 Howells Mere
Number 8 Howell's Mere is simply amazing - a stunning barn with a unique design and style that makes it one of our favourite properties at the Cotswold Water Park. Situated right on the edge of the Howell's Mere lake it has peaceful views across the water towards other contemporary properties - all very calm and quiet - in fact we feel it has a Scandinavian style and feel!
