We are very welcoming towards dogs of all shapes and sizes (and their owners!). We love to see dogs enjoying the pub and garden as much as we do! Dogs are more than welcome throughout the Castle Inn (on short leads please). You are welcome to bring your dogs with you into either bar for a meal or for a drink (or more!). For those not wishing to be come inside with their dogs, we have plenty of seating outside and in the beer garden.
Our Dog Friendly Accommodation
We are very “dog friendly” both in the pub and hotel, and we are gaining a great reputation for our high level of care towards dogs visiting with their humans! Dogs, which can stay for free, are allowed into the bedrooms, and of course throughout the public areas. For breakfast we lay your table in the bar areas so that you can eat with your dogs (as seen in the many photos below!) and they can have their sausage! There are many walks straight from The Castle Inn – there’s no need for the car to take your dog for their morning and evening strolls. The Map & Directions page shows just a few of the walks surrounding the inn.
Mentions in the Press
We were given First place in the Dogs Today magazines “6 of the Best Doggie Holidays” feature, covering the best dog friendly accommodation across the country, in the January 2011 Magazine. We were featured on ITV This Morning’s “Celebrity Dog Walks” series with Joe Swash on the 7th July 2010! We were featured in the “Where to Stay 2009″ guide by the Your Dog Magazine, we were independently assessed and we are the only B&B in Dorset listed! We were also included in the 2010 guide in the “best of 2009″ feature! We also achieved the finalist stage (out of four) for ThePet.net’s Awards 2009 for Best Hotel/B&B in the UK!

Our Recent Dog Guests
Unfortunately, due to the huge number of dogs we have visiting us, we are only able to feature the dogs who have stayed with our guests in the hotel on the Dog Page! (Sorry!)
If you have a great photo of your dog at the Castle Inn, please submit one to us and we will include it in our gallery!
