There are countless reasons why Bolesworth captures the hearts of its visitors, but one aspect that sets it apart from other venues is its unwavering commitment to being a dog-friendly events venue. With three adorable office dogs who have melted the hearts of even the most steadfast cat lovers (shoutout to Alfie, Flops, and Poppy!) Bolesworth has become synonymous with creating an inclusive environment where humans and their fur babies can enjoy unforgettable experiences.
As the age-old saying goes, dogs truly are a man’s best friend. For many people, dogs are not just pets; they are cherished members of their families, offering unconditional love, companionship, and loyalty. We know the heart-breaking puppy eyes all too well, so instead of making you leave your pooch at home, we welcome dogs to join their pawrents to many of our events!
A Haven for Dog Lovers
It’s our pawlicy to create an inclusive environment that caters to the needs of all visitors, including those with canine companions. By embracing a dog-friendly approach, our venue ensures that no one is left behind and everyone can fully enjoy our amazing events at Bolesworth.
Unleashing the Fun
When organising events catering to dog owners, Bolesworth goes above and beyond to create a memorable experience for humans and their four-legged friends. From exciting horse shows and balloon fiestas to relaxed picnics and outdoor concerts, our venue offers diverse activities that allow dogs to socialise, play, and explore in a safe and welcoming environment.
Bolesworth’s dog-friendly approach extends beyond the events it hosts. The stunning estate, encompassing picturesque gardens, sprawling grounds, and scenic walking trails, offers an ideal backdrop for dog owners seeking outdoor adventures. Whether you and your furry companion enjoy long hikes through nature or prefer a leisurely stroll amidst breathtaking landscapes, Bolesworth provides the perfect setting for unforgettable moments of exploration!
We know some of you have spoilt pups (we do, too), so we understand that happy dogs make for happy owners. To ensure a comfortable and enjoyable experience for furry guests, we offer a range of amenities at all our events. From water stations and shaded areas to designated dog-friendly sections, Bolesworth takes pride in providing all the necessary facilities to accommodate its four-legged visitors.
To maintain a harmonious environment for all guests, we kindly request that dog owners adhere to a few guidelines to ensure the safety and enjoyment of everyone. Responsible dog ownership, including proper leash control, waste disposal, and respecting the boundaries of other visitors, ensures that both human and canine guests can relish their time at the venue without any inconveniences. If you find yourself in a pinch and need a poo bag, please find one of our staff who always carries a spare!
If you want to make a weekend of it (or you don’t fancy camping), we have a host of dog-friendly hotels and B&Bs in the area you can stay at.
Just 10 minutes down the road, you’ll find The Pheasant Inn, a quintessentially English country pub nestled in the gloriously unspoilt Peckforton Hills — a country hotel with 12 boutique-style Cheshire hotel rooms and an AA Rosette-awarded restaurant.
Fifteen minutes away, in the nearby village of Malpas, is The Lion – recent renovations have transformed the experience of staying in the Cheshire countryside. Sixteen fabulous new rooms have been created using beautiful fabrics, reclaimed timbers and the finest furnishings.
Twenty minutes from us, The Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa – an award-winning hotel just outside the historic city of Chester – offers beautiful modern bedrooms, opulent spa and leisure facilities, and two refined restaurants.
You’d be barking mad to stay anywhere else!
