The Nare Hotel, Cornwall
Rated by the AA as the best hotel in Cornwall every year for the last 15 years, The Nare Hotel is also hound-happy. All dogs checking into the hotel have dinner included in the cost of their stay, from their own Table d’Hôte menu featuring the Chef’s Dish of the Day. Those with special dietary requirements and desires may find the Dogs à la Carte Menu has a wider choice. There is also plenty of opportunity for exercise along the coastal footpath and on the beach, with biodegradable dog bags available in reception. Outdoorsey breeds may prefer to stay in the kennels, for which there is no charge if on self-catering terms.
