Pet Friendly Hotel

At Bridge House we know how important your dog is to you, after all he’s a member of your family. That’s why we welcome dogs at Bridge House, so that they can also enjoy a holiday with you.

Your dog’s stay at Bridge House

Each dog costs just £15 per night (maximum of two small dogs allowed) and with this we offer a dog towel for muddy paws and treats to remind them of good behaviour!

We have a fully enclosed garden so the dogs can have a free roam with the gate closed. They are allowed in the bar and medieval lounge, but unfortunately not in the Sunroom ‘breakfast room’ or the main restaurant.


What’s on offer for your dog?

  • Dog towel
  • Dog treats
  • A secure enclosed garden with a dog poo bin
  • A dog sitter at an additional charge. (via a local dog sitter/walker)
  • Dog grooming at an additional charge (via a local dog groomer)


Which bedrooms can my dog stay in?

You can stay with your dog in one of our two ground floor Coach House rooms.


Where can I walk my dog locally?

Around Beaminster/Netherbury: There is a lovely lane just a few minutes from the hotel which takes you on a field walk over to the village of Netherbury.  Ask at reception for directions.
