Dog Friendly New Year in Dorset

Tuesday, 3 January 2017

Here it is, the New Year, the new start and a new 365 days to fill with fun and adventures, making memories that will last a life time, along the way.
The 1st of January is also my Birthday, this year I turned 29 and although I feel as old as it sounds, I am also super excited for the year ahead ♥

Celebrating my last year of my twenties, Sam, Sev, Lily and I got treated to a night at the Grosvenor Arms in Dorset.

Wishing for nothing more than to see new places and adventure along with the pooches, dog friendly travel is really important to me and is the thing that truly makes me so happy ♥

Booked through Pets Pyjamas, the Grosvenor Arms is located in Shaftesbury, a gorgeous little village home to "Hovis Hill" and is rather picture perfect.
The whole place has a rather homely and lovely feel to it, boasting gorgeous rooms, a cosy wood burner, many cosy sofas and amazing food and drink.

Dogs were all around spotting all sorts of breeds and sizes, sitting with their owner at the bar or keeping warm by the fire. It really showed how dog friendly they were and having Sev and Lily by my side, on my Birthday is something I'd never want to change.

 The bedrooms were rather lovely, with a wonderful bath that obviously called my name for a soak in some bubbles, an amazing king size bed, a small bed and bowl for the dogs and a coffee machine for the morning after the night before.

The bar area is lovely, and although we saw dogs join their owners in the restaurant for breakfast we decided to stay their for the morning too. Having both comfy sofas to pick from, as well as normal height tables and chairs....a must if you're eating with your pooch in a none dining area.
The fire roared on the first evening of January, and the 2-for-1 margaritas were drunk while the dogs napped at our feet or said hello to the other four-legged friends that joined their family for New Year Celebrations.

 If you're looking for a pet-away then head over to Pets Pyjamas to search the amazing hotels and deals they have to offer for you and your pup.

  9. What a lovely way to bring in the New Year and celebrate the birthday! I've turned 28 now and it feels weird to think I'm almost 30- eek! This is definitely going on my list of places to take hubby and Harry, especially with the 2 for 1 margaritas!
