Dog-Friendly Hotel in Newbury

Head to the rolling hills of the North Wessex Downs and escape the city. Our delightful hotel boasts 18 dog-friendly bedrooms, surrounded by the Berkshire countryside, next to Highclere Castle. The Carnarvon Arms is the best place to stay for those with four-legged friends with some of the best walks in North Wessex, from a stroll along the Kennet and Avon canal and walks to Beacon Hill.

Each bedroom is individually designed and they each come equipped with all you could possibly need to spend the night in comfort. We’ve not forgotten about your dogs either, you can expect them to be treated to dog treats, a dog bed or blanket and a water bowl so they feel right at home throughout their stay.

Dog-Friendly Holidays

Our dog-friendly bedrooms provide everything you need to keep tails wagging this summer. Complete with their own doggy bed or blanket, bowl and tasty treats, plus a selection of scenic walks in and around Highclere just a bone’s throw away, there’s no need to leave anyone behind this holiday. Up to two pooches can stay with you, where available, for an additional £15 each per room per night.

Dog-Friendly Accommodation

Our 18 bedrooms are all designed to reflect our Berkshire heritage, creating the perfect Christmas break for weekend breaks or a countryside pitstop. Our bedrooms are coupled with contemporary decor and come equipped with all you could possibly need to spend the night in comfort.

Dog House Rules

  1. Each of our dog-friendly bedrooms has space for 2 dogs and is charged at £15 per stay, whether you bring one or two furry friends.
  2. Although most people’s days are brightened by seeing a dog, please keep other guests in mind.
  3. We know your doggy may be excited about your getaway but, please keep in mind that there may be a cost for any doggy damages.
  4. We don’t like the idea of your pup getting lonely, so please do not leave them unsupervised at any time.
  5. Your room will come with dog treats, a dog bed or blanket and a dog bowl. However, we know dogs love their own beds so feel free to bring your own.
  6. There’s nothing better than when your four-legged friend comes with a friend of their own, but please note we cannot accept any more than 2 dogs per room.
  7. It goes without saying that your doggy may get muddy. Your room comes with a dog blanket but if your dog is particularly large or enjoys getting very muddy then please bring an extra blanket for them.
  8. We know your doggy might get comfy on the sofa at home, but while with us please keep dogs off the beds and soft furnishings.
