But our Gurus have come up with a list of the best dog friendly hotels in Wales, to make sure you and your canine companion get the most from your visit.

Dog Friendly Hotels in Wales

Dog Friendly Hotels in Wales on the Coast

Llys Medygg (which means Doctor’s Court) on the Pembrokeshire coast near Newport is a restaurant with rooms run by a local couple. In summer the restaurant moves into the garden and in winter into the cosy wine cellar.

Dog Friendly Hotels in Wales with Great Views

The Penhelig Armsi on the Dyfi Estuary has a fabulous spot, right on the seafront, with views of the sea and the mountains. Or for proper mountain views try the Pen-y-Gwryd Hotel in Gwynedd, in the heart of the Snowdonia National Park. Here hearty dinners are announced to guests by a member of staff banging a gong, one of the walls in the bar is made of polished halved tree trunks and there is home-made lemonade in summer and mulled wine in winter.

Dog Friendly Hotels in Wales for Foodies

To find somewhere foodie, but also dog friendly is a challenge, yet in Llandrillo, in the breathtakingly beautiful Vale of Edeyrnion, you’ll find Tyddyn Llan, which has been converted from a Georgian house. This is a Michelin starred foodie paradise, where dogs (and kids) are allowed in the bedrooms, but not in the public areas.

Dog Friendly Hotels in Wales for Great Value

The West Arms in Wrexham has plenty of warm fires for dogs to stretch out in front of, after a long walk in the Berwyn Hills. The food is good and the vibe is un-fussy, there’s kayaking, mountain biking and riding nearby, and rooms start from just £70 per night.

Dog Friendly Hotels in Wales to Escape to

Great for total escapism, the Lake Country House Hotel and Spa is in the very heart of Wales. There are huge lawns, rhododendron walks and riverside paths for endless gambolling for canine guests as well as a spa, golf course and tennis court for families.There is a large indoor swimming pool and a very decent restaurant.

Dog Friendly Hotels in Wales - North Wales

Y Meirionnydd in Dollgelau has been converted from a prison, but with its now subtle furnishings, great restaurant and proximity to the beach and the mountains, it’s come a long way from its original use. On the nearby Mawddach Estuary you’ll find The Slate Shed B&B, another interesting conversion, this time of a slate cutting mill, which is modern and slick and friendly to bikes and dogs.

Dog Friendly Hotels in Wales - South and Mid Wales

Hurst House near Laugharne in Carmarthenshire has been converted from a farmhouse and has a huge kitchen garden, a spa, cinema and regular musical and literary evenings. Or try the Bell at Skenfrith, a former coaching house in the Welsh Marches with light, unfussy, modern country-style bedrooms and lovely walks right outside. As well as being great for dog owners this is also a great spot for fisherfolk.

Dog Friendly Hotels in West Wales

Ty Mawr Mansion, near the Georgian harbour town of Aberaeron sits in twelve acres of parkland which would delight any dog. For those who want a longer walk there is a beach nearby. Sip something cold in the drawing room while choosing dinner from a menu bursting with Welsh specialities. Local game, fish, lamb and beef are served alongside seasonal vegetables.
