Lovely doggy day out

Post by Harvey's Mum » 23 Feb 2014, 21:43

We're just back from a short holiday to Wiltshire. We stayed in a Hoseasons log cabin at Hunter's Moon and they are totally dog friendly. Harvey met a few doggy friends in the Restaurant/bar while we had a meal and he did us proud.

If you are in that area Old Wardour Castle is worth a visit. Dogs are allowed in and there are loads of rooms for the children (and dogs) to explore. We spent a good couple of hours there and if we'd have taken a picnic could have stretched it out far longer. We had to carry Harvey up and down all the steps though because of his puppydom. He'd have loved to climb them himself though.

We also went to look at the stone circles at Avebury - dogs also allowed there. The kids loved it there too. We had read that it was better than Stonehenge (which did the cheap way by driving past because no dogs allowed!).

Having a dog is certainly putting a different angle on our holidays but one which we like.

Hi Linda
Looks fab AND blue skies !! Good to know we can wander round Old Wardour Castle
Amazing the things we end up doing once we get dog/s and how we alter our holiday routines indeed options!!

PS: would you go back when Harvey is older and keen to spend all his time in the lake? 8)

The accommodations look a bit drafty...

It's amazing how much fitter and healthier we become once we get a dog installed at home... I didn't point this out to the OH before we got ours... :roll:
You get used to sitting outside cafes too... That's why when you find a pub or cafe that lets you in, you treasure it. (Lots in the Peak District!)

And if there is a room going spare in that there castle, I'll take it - our heating has been on the blink for a week... :cry:

Avebury is one of Oscar's fave summer walks, not too far from us really. Glad you enjoyed it. :)
