Dog Friendly Breaks

Rest assured that you can expect the same high standards of service and quality in our pet-friendly rooms as you can throughout the hotel and we’ll do all that we can to ensure everyone’s creature comforts are more than satisfied.

For the comfort of your fellow guests, yourself and your dog, we politely ask all dog owners to follow our guidelines on dogs at Doxford during your stay.

Please let our Reservations team know when booking your room that you will be bringing a dog – we cannot guarantee that we will have a suitable room for you without advanced notice.

Staying with Dogs


Our Dog Policy


  • We welcome well behaved and fully trained pets at Doxford Hall.
  • We have a limited number of designated dog friendly rooms and can accommodate up to two small dogs or one larger breed to stay in
    a room.

  • Please refrain from allowing your dog to sit or lie on the hotel furnishings; any additional cost for deep-cleaning, repair and replacement of damaged facilities caused by your pet will be charged to you as the pet owner.
  • For the comfort of other guests, we ask that you keep your dog on a lead and under control at all times.
