Travelling with your pooch? Then stay with us for the perfect dog-friendly break! At The Grosvenor Arms, we welcome muddy paws with open arms. We are super-dog-friendly, and our four-legged friends are welcome in the bar, conservatory, outside terrace and all our super-stylish bedrooms.
Our full restaurant menu is available in the bar, conservatory and outside areas, so you can tuck into our trademark delicious West Country food with your dog happily at your side. Pampered pooches staying overnight get their very own goody bag.
Shaftesbury is a fantastic market town, and there are lots of great local walks on the doorstep to get tails wagging.
There is a £15 supplement per stay for dogs.
Check in is from 3pm but it is always possible the room will be available earlier, so please call us and ask. Departure is from 11am although we are happy to leave it until later if there are no incoming guests for the room.
Please note that the hotel does not operate a 24 reception desk, so if you plan to arrive after 10pm please call the hotel in advance so they can arrange access.
