This 200-year-old country house hotel set within a Grade II listed manor in the Cotswolds is run by dog owners Corinna and James. Burleigh Court prides itself on offering a poochy palace where canine companions and their humans will eat well, sleep well and feel well during their visit. Nestled within three acres of lush gardens with panoramic views across Gloucestershire’s Golden Valley, the hotel offers seven pet-friendly bedrooms. Canines get a cosy bed and bowls, plus a bag of delicious, healthy doggy delights. Many of the rooms have direct access to the grounds. The room rate includes one dog, but a second canine is welcome at a charge of an additional £10 per day.

What could be better than a city stay with your furry four-legged friend? The new Hart Shoreditch Hotel has recently opened, and it’s just a five-minute walk from Old Street Tube station and a ten-minute walk to Liverpool Street station. The Turkish-themed bar and restaurant are worth checking out, and we recommend the Turkish coffee, which is roasted over hot sand. The hotel is part of the Curio by Hilton group, and they have recently created a special menu for dogs. The new Bone Appetit menu includes amazing dishes for your pup, like Beef Doguignon – slow-cooked beef brisket served with mashed potato, carrots, green beans, sweetcorn, broad beans and gluten-free gravy – and Mutt Roast and gluten-free tomato pasta, topped with mature Cheddar cheese and roasted in the oven. Dogs also get their own bed and water bowl for their stay, so they’ll definitely leave feeling like VIDs! Cats are also welcome here.

• A one-night stay at the Hart Shoreditch costs from £125, including breakfast. To book, visit Hartshoreditch.com
