The Old Sun, Haworth
The Old Sun is located in the beautiful Bronte Country village of Haworth, surrounded by the scenery you’ll have become accustomed to if you ever read Wuthering Heights!
A family-run pub in the heart of the Pennines, The Old Sun has four guest rooms available, with two doubles, a family room and a twin. The friendly (and exceedingly dog friendly!) hosts will send you on your way to see all of the sights in and around Haworth with a hearty, locally sourced English breakfast and a smile. There is no extra charge for your pooch (or pooches).
Prices vary, double including breakfast £75. http://www.theoldsunhaworth.co.uk/
The Royal Hotel, Dungworth
The Royal has been on this site since 1813 and little of the structure of this lovely building has changed. With both Sheffield city centre and the Upper Derwent Valley of the Peak District on the doorstep, this hotel is a great choice whether you’re looking for a moment’s calm in a city break or a great location for a countryside, walking holiday. The Royal welcomes dogs by prior arrangement in all of its three rooms, with the only request being they don’t go on the beds. The nearby Derwent Dam is the historical location of the practice runs 617 Squadron completed for using the “bouncing bombs” before heading to Germany for the World War Two Dam Busters Raid in 1943, so the landscape is imbued with history as well as beauty. That makes it a perfect break for Fido, who will enjoy bounding along in the fresh air, and you alongside, who can take in a little of Britain’s history.
Price from £70 per double. www.royalhotel-dungworth.com
Nateby Inn, Kirkby Stephen
Perfectly positioned on the edge of the Lake District and the Yorkshire Dales, this inn offers 4* Bed and Breakfast accommodation in 5 en-suite bedrooms. With both the Coast-to-Coast and Pennine Way walks cutting a path within feet of the inn, this is a perfect location for a walking weekend away with your pooch. Well-behaved dogs are welcomed throughout for £6 per dog per night, except in the restaurant – you are, however, welcome to dine with your dog in the bar area.
Priced from £60 per double. www.nateby-inn.co.uk
The Wheatsheaf, Wensleydale
Since our favourite plasticine partnership Wallace and Gromit love Wensleydale Cheese, it’s only fitting that this Wensleydale hotel welcomes your four-legged friend! The Wheatsheaf sits in the beautiful Yorkshire Dales National Park, and they realise that the perfect companion for your stay in such a setting is your pooch, so all rooms (bar the Superior doubles) are dog-friendly, for an additional £10 per stay.
Priced from £70 per double. www.wheatsheafinwensleydale.co.uk
The Fox and Hounds Inn, Sinnington
This comfortable 18th century coaching inn sits on the edge of the North York Moors National Park, between the market towns of Pickering and Kirkbymoorside. Near to Castle Howard, there is plenty of scope for taking in some history. Pets are welcome by prior arrangement, and the ground floor rooms are particularly accessible for those bringing a pooch along for the ride! Bringing your dog along costs an additional £8 per night, per dog, and they are welcome to use the large paddock at any time.
Price from £80 per double. www.thefoxandhoundsinn.co.uk
The George and Dragon Inn, Aysgarth
The George and Dragon has welcomed weary travellers for nearly 300 years, located as it is on the edge of the picturesque town of Aysgarth famous for its beautiful waterfalls. They welcome pets in two of their rooms at a small additional cost, and serve locally-sourced food at their restaurant.
Price from £60 per double. www.georgeanddragonaysgarth.co.uk
The Postgate Inn, Egton Bridge
This country inn and restaurant near to the famous coastal town of Whitby on the North York Moors dates back to 1860. This award-winning establishment is decisively pet-friendly in both restaurant and rooms, and is famous under another name – the pub featured regularly as “The Black Dog” in popular ITV soap opera Heartbeat!
Price from £80 per double. www.postgateinn.com
Richard III Hotel, Middleham
Dating from the 1700s, this inn has been welcoming guests for over 300 years. With six en-suite rooms (one of which, legend suggests, is haunted!) this is the perfect locale to spend a few days, whether your passion is for the famous race horses or for the history you can explore at Richard III’s nearby castle. Looking out onto the marketplace of this traditional village, the Richard III is the perfect countryside spot for you and your pooch. They charge an additional £5 per night for your pooch.
