Summer holidays

Bring your furry-friend too

June, 2017

Getaway with the whole family for a staycation this summer, this includes your dog too! With very few restrictions in regards to walking in the beautiful New Forest, it not only makes for the perfect retreat for keen walker, cyclist or hacker – it is also the perfect place to bring the dogs.

Our family Verderer rooms have been cleverly designed to offer enough space when travelling with the family. Each room features a super-king bed and for the children a choice of either bunk beds of sofa beds, with space to accommodate a Z bed or cot if needed – So there is plenty of space for all!

Head out to the heathlands where you’ll see newly-born foals, calves and deer with their Mums. Be sure to keep your furry-friend on the lead so they don’t scare the little ones! Across the New Forest there are a fantastic range of extensive walking routes which span across the beautiful heathland, woodland and coastlines. So there is plenty of destinations for a game of fetch or long walk. The heathlands also make for a beautiful picnic spot. Wilverly Plain near Brockenhurst is a popular destination for just this. Grab a blanket and bring all your favourite picnic classics, it’s going to be a fun-filled family afternoon!

Take your pup to one of our locals for some tasty delicious classics; our sister pub The Drift Inn is situated on Beaulieu Road next door to our Beaulieu Hotel. It’s surrounded by masses of beautiful heathlands where baby donkeys have been spotted this season. At The Drift Inn they have towels, water bowls, treats and plenty of attention for your pup. As well as plenty of drinks, nibbles and a warm welcome for you. Head out to their pub garden, where there’s tables to eat, drink and enjoy the sunshine, a play area for the kids.

If the sun is shining, choose to dine out on the terrace or in the bar with your dog, however if you fancy an evening in one of our restaurants it might have to be an early night for your four legged friend as dogs aren’t able to join you in the restaurant.

After a day of adventuring and enjoying the New Forest together, we’ll have your pillows plumped and fresh water and even a few treats for the pup! We’ll see you in the morning to do it all over again.
