Weddings are full of hustle and bustle. After the wedding whirlwind, there’s nothing better than having something else to look forward to. More and more dog owners are opting for sharing their happiness with the dogs by booking a dreamy little mini moon, right here in the UK.
Our friend @lilahthewhippet spent a long time searching for a magical mini moon break where her dog could bask in the happiness too. In this article, they’re sharing some of the dog friendly cabin escapes that made the shortlist.
When embarking on my own search for the ideal UK-based mini moon, we had no idea just how many styles of staycation there are to choose from. What better way to recover from your blissful big day than with a spa break? But can you take your dog too? Here are some beautiful spa spaces with specific pet packages, so your dog will feel as pampered as you.

Upon arrival at the hotel, your pooch will find food and water bowls and a comfy bed. Depending on the package you pick, you may even end up with a couple of other surprises:

Muddy Paws at The Spread Eagle
There is tons of space to run around. At Bailiffscourt and Ockenden Manor there is ample outdoor space for dogs to run free, Bailiffscourt has 30 acres. At The Spread Eagle, there’s a beautiful small garden and The South Downs National Park is just a few steps away, where there are endless dog walks and sniffs for them to enjoy.
