COMPETITION TIME! Win a Pet Friendly Holiday in the Cotswolds!

Are you craving a short break with your dog? If so our competition this month will be right up your street because we've teamed up with The Plough Inn, located in the heart of the Cotswolds in Cold Aston, to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a two-night getaway with their pet (and a friend or partner).

What could be better than spending a couple of days and nights enjoying the gently rolling hills and the largest Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty in England and Wales with your beloved dog?

Nestled in the small Cotswolds Village of Cold Aston between Cheltenham and Bourton-on-the-water is The Plough Inn, a true country pub. With its old Cotswold flagstones, original beams and a roaring fire you can lose yourself in the history of this 17th Century Inn.

The Plough Inn is proud to support local farmers and have an ever changing, seasonal menu always using the freshest and best ingredients. They aim to do classic pub food as well as interesting premium dishes - with a charcoal fired Bertha oven in the kitchen to add incredible flavour to meat and fish dishes.

The Plough Inn also has three letting bedrooms above the pub. The rooms have been renovated and decorated sympathetically to preserve the character of this grade II listed building. Each room has an exceptionally comfortable bed with crisp fresh white linen, feather pillows, fluffy white towels, ensuite bathroom, the list goes on.

All-in-all a visit to The Plough Inn will truly impress you from the moment you walk in the door. The warmth of hospitality, quality of food and the interesting drinks make this a true hidden gem right in the heart of the Cotswolds.

What's included in the competition:

A two-night stay for two adults and their dog/s with breakfast each morning and one evening meal is included (drinks not included).

  1. Please please pick me for the win as I am a very intelligent Scottish border collie called Charlie who can actually speak the hooman english language and therefore would be able to give a very full and accurate account of my stay at such a loverly dog friendly establishment.

  2. We left our boys with a dog-minder when we went on holiday in September. While we were away they had a nasty fight – everyone who knows them are totally shocked as they previously idolised each other. We’ve been working hard with a behaviourist to get them back on good terms with each other and are making good progress. A break away might just be the clincher for them to re-bond

  3. Our Alfie-dog, a Greyhound Saluki Cross, lost his owner (my mum’s partner) in February. Although we give him as much love as we possibly can, a lovely dog-friendly holiday would be PERFECT for him! AND us with him as not every holiday place is dog friendly which is a shame!

  4. Our bright and breezy working cocker Bonnie would love this Cotswold break! She loves new places and people and would take great delight in exploring and will definitely write a fabulous review.
