There are dog friendly holidays and then there are dog friendly holidays. Lavish countryside retreat Stapleford Park, has launched a pooch pamper package like no other. Doggy Divine is a luxury escape for both human and hound, that sets a whole new standard in pet friendly travel. The only problem is, your dog may not want to go home!
Already handpicked as a member of the StyleTails Luxe Pet Guide – the discerning pet parent’s little black book, Stapleford Park truly lives up to its dog friendly reputation. For its new Doggy Divine package, this opulent Georgian country hotel has commissioned bespoke luxury dog beds from local designers, Doggy & Gabbona of Melton Mowbray, each uniquely designed to complement the style and character of four select and luxuriously furnished suites at the 55-room hotel. Each bed is individually handcrafted and contains hypo-allergenic materials to give canine guests a heavenly night’s sleep.
New doggy menus have also been devised providing a selection of gourmet recipes including a main meat dish, Pawpato treats and character creams. To ensure maximum comfort and indulgence, Stapleford Park has also introduced a new Doggy Afternoon tea menu, offering a delicious selection of doggy biscuits and Pawsecco (herbal drink for dogs from local business Hungry Hounds Bakery), to sit alongside its traditional and very popular afternoon tea for human guests.
“We’ve always welcomed well behaved dogs at Stapleford Park but felt it was time to put them at the centre of the stay and give our furry guests the same level of comfort as our two-legged guests” says Angelina Chua, Hotel Manager, Stapleford Park.
