Discovering Bath with your Dog
The world is your oyster and your four-legged friend is your best travel companion - so we’ve created a series of blogs to bring you and your dog some of the best places to visit around the UK.
In this blog we’re exploring the stunning, historic grounds of Bath and uncovering its wonderful dog-friendly gems for you to enjoy.
Where to stay
Twenty minutes outside of the city centre, sits Lucknam Park Hotel and Spa, a spectacular residence set on acres of pristine parkland. Known for its exquisite grounds and luxury stays, the hotel also offers a specialist canine experience. Think doggy room service menu, delicious welcome treats, water/food bowls, bedding, towels and dog washing facilities to get them squeaky clean after exploring the grounds.
Lucknam Park prides itself in extending the highest standards of hospitality and comfort to all guests, both two legged and four legged. With a selection of special amenities to ensure man’s best friend, enjoys a memorable stay.
Ston Easton Park Hotel is a thirty five minute drive from the city centre, is nestled on 36 acres of 18th century parkland and even has a fluffy, four-legged master of the house - Oscar the Cocker Spaniel! Understanding the joys of travelling with a faithful companion, Ston Easton Park Hotel prides itself on the pet packages it offers and the warm welcome it provides to both two, and four legged guests.
Where to go
Just a short walk from bustling Milsom Street, you’ll find the Royal Victoria Park. The paths leading around the park are absolutely beautiful and are teeming with flower beds bursting with colour. Large open fields make Royal Victoria Park a perfect stop for a few rounds of fetch and a lovely stroll.
To get a fantastic view of the city, follow the six mile Skyline Walk loop. The grassy loop and seemingly endless views are the perfect way to spend an afternoon with your best furry friend. This loop has plenty of opportunity to let your dog off the lead to bound their way through the grass, while you enjoy the fresh air and uninterrupted views of Bath.
Where to eat
For one of the best cooked breakfasts in the city and a pink wall that features pictures of the cafe’s favourite four legged guests, Good Day Cafe is the place to go. Using locally sourced ingredients, Good Day Cafe serves up mouth-watering dishes, such as banana bread with greek yoghurt and blueberry compote, or house made baked beans with local bacon and eggs.
For lunch, stop by a favourite of locals, Cafe au Lait. Their creative and delicious menu, accompanied by the gorgeous street side location, make this a fantastic stop whilst visiting Bath. We definitely recommend stopping by the cafe for a hearty, locally sourced lunch with your pooch in tow.
To end your day discovering all the beauty that Bath has to offer, stop by The Chequers for dinner. Make yourself and your pup comfortable in the Georgian building and enjoy the gastropub’s scrumptious menu.
