The Porch House, Bishop’s Castle, Shropshire
The huge, half-timbered house was built in 1564 - the year of Shakespeare's birth - and the basic structure of wattle and daub and huge oak beams survives, along with a more sober eighteenth-century extension at the back. Upstairs, the en-suite rooms are spacious, prettily furnished and full of character and interest; there's a large dining room for guests and a garden, and the owners also rent out two self-contained apartments in the house.
The Porch House, 33-35 High Street, Bishop's Castle, Shropshire, SY9 5BE.
Rates: Rooms start from £70.

We have two large GSDs who have travelled with us every year camping in Yorkshire, to holiday parks in Norfolk, Devon and Cornwall.
Just got back from Winterton on sea £220 for six days
The Britannia Hotel group is a cheap night out, £29 B&B most nights and most hotels, but you have to take a chance on getting a decent clean room, some of them are not fit for dogs.
Also about the taking animals on holiday debate, I think that its important to remember going to a kennels or a catery is not a holiday for pets- its very stressful for the majority of them!
It would be nice if more places were pet friendly but I know a few bad owners do let the rest of us down, still you are much more likely to catch somthing from the unhygenic person before you than their dog :)
like lots of people in the uk i would like to see a article on pet friendly places to stay. and not just in the uk. we love to travel with our two dogs but finding pet friendly places can be really hard.
just a thought
