An Award Winning Hotel for Dogs

We love dogs, so bring them along and they will receive the full Homewood waggy-tail welcome.

Walkies galore!

We have all the facilities you need to ensure your dog has a fantastic stay with us. With 20 acres of grounds and a dedicated dog agility course, there’s lots of space for some sedate walks at Homewood with more challenging terrain right on our doorstep.

When you arrive we will have a specially prepared Woof Box ready, filled with Lily’s Kitchen food, treats and a ball. We will also provide doggie beds and bowls – all for just an extra £25.

You can dine with your dog from the full Olio menu in our bar and lounges. Your pooch can also sample the delights from our ever-changing dog menu.

Dog agility course

We’ve carefully crafted a fun-filled dog agility zone to keep our furry friends healthy and active even when lounging around our divine country house estate. Surrounded by beautiful greenery and views over the Avon Valley, it’s the perfect way to get those tails-wagging before a delicious dinner.

Unleash your dog's inner athlete as they navigate our agility course, honing their coordination, balance, and focus. Watch their delight as they conquer obstacles, conquer jumps, weave through poles, and dash through tunnels. It's a fantastic way for them to burn off energy and exercise in a safe and controlled environment.
