Dog Friendly Hotels In The New Forest

We’ve explored and selected the seven most wonderful dog-friendly hotels in The New Forest, ensuring an unforgettable trip for you and your canine companion.

1. The Master Builder’s House Hotel

Situated on the banks of the Beaulieu River, The Master Builder’s House Hotel is a real treat for you and your furry friend.

This beautiful hotel was even awarded “Dog Friendly Hotel of the Year 2021” by The Good Hotel Guide.

There are rooms for you and your pooch to share in the hotel’s Henry Adams wing for a £25 surcharge.

They provide a tasty welcome treat for your canine companion as well as a super comfy bed and dog bowls.

The hotel has a wonderful Garden View Restaurant where your dog can relax by your side as you dine.

You and your dog will love exploring the picturesque riverbank or the lush forests nearby.

2. Limewood Hotel

The exquisite Limewood Hotel offers dog-friendly rooms; the Garden Lodges are perfect for a getaway for you and your pooch.

For £30 per night, your dog will be made welcome at this hotel and will be given his very own dog basket during your stay.

After your excursions, unwind at the on-site Raw & Cured café for a healthy and satisfying brunch – just be sure to check they’re happy for your doggy to join you.

3. Careys Manor & SenSpa

Careys Manor offers dog-friendly ground-floor rooms for you and your pooch for just £30 per dog, per room, for up to three days.

If you’re staying for more than four days, an additional £30 charge will apply.

Unfortunately, you can only have one dog per room.

With numerous trails in the surrounding forest, you and your doggo will have so much exploring to do before retiring to the comfort of your room for a well-earned rest.

And, if you have time to slip away, there’s a luxurious spa for you to enjoy.

4. Montagu Arms Hotel

At Montagu Arms Hotel, dogs are welcome in specific suites.

They provide a ‘doggy welcome pack’ with treats, a bed, and a guide to local dog-friendly attractions.

For more extended stays, there will be an additional £30 charge per dog.

And, if you require pet sitting during your stay, you can arrange this at reception for an extra cost.

Being located in Beaulieu Village, you have easy access to scenic walks along the Beaulieu River; you and your four-legged friend will have a great time exploring.

The Balmer Lawn Hotel provides a warm welcome to both human and canine guests.

They allow a maximum of two dogs per room for an extra cost of £25 a day per dog.

It’s worth noting that the hotel doesn’t allow dogs on furniture in your hotel room. They are also not permitted in the indoor leisure facilities or in Beresfords Restaurant.

We think the location of the Balmer Lawn Hotel, right on the edge of the forest, is perfect for long walks with your four-legged friend.

The Forest Park Hotel will welcome your pet with open paws.

They offer eight dog-friendly rooms and suites, all on the ground floor with easy access to the gardens, to ensure you and your pet have a comfortable stay.

Burley Manor is surrounded by 8 acres of land, ideal for dog walks, and is just a short stroll away from the heart of the village, where your canine friend is welcome in many shops.

If your pooch gets muddy on your adventures, they can visit the wash pipes to freshen up those paws on the way back to your room.
