When planning a holiday, the comfort and joy of our four-legged friends often top the list of considerations. For many, the allure of foreign lands fades when faced with the complexities of pet travel. But, fortunately, tucked away in the heart of the UK are two idyllic locales that perfectly cater to pet enthusiasts: the historic charm of Stamford and the enchanting beauty of the Cotswolds. Both destinations promise unforgettable experiences for both humans and their canine companions. If a serene staycation with your beloved pet sounds like a dream, let us guide you through the myriad of opportunities awaiting in Stamford and the Cotswolds.

Historic Walks in Stamford:

Stamford offers a journey through time with its streets lined with centuries-old architecture. Meandering through this rich heritage with your dog, especially along the serene paths by the River Welland, is an experience like no other.

Long Dog Walks in the Cotswolds:

The Cotswolds, adorned with rolling hills, presents a picturesque setting for long walks. The Cotswold Way, stretching 100 miles, boasts panoramic countryside views. But if a shorter stroll is more your speed, starting from Broadway and reaching the Broadway Tower promises enchanting sights. Always be prepared with a map and water, especially when treading through areas like the Wychavon Way with its stunning orchards, meadows, and riverside paths.

2 New Row is part of a terrace of cottages numbering 6 built around 1810. The 2 storey cottage has a long front garden, recently redesigned, and a parking space off the lane. The cottage is constructed of Cotswold limestone, under a tiled roof and features original stone mullioned windows. It is Grade 2 Listed and in a Conservation Area, and as such, has the appearance and ambience of when it was built some 200 years ago. We also have an excellent pub, The Craven Arms immediately opposite
