Set in an area of natural beauty, there are beautiful walks for pooches and their owners nearby.

Lady Ingilby, owner of Ripley Castle and The Boar’s Head Hotel, said: “We always make sure our guests and their furry friends are at the heart of everything we do. We all strive to achieve the very best we can and until everything is perfect, we won’t rest.

“This award is a fantastic achievement and I’m very proud of my team for helping to secure this for our stunning hotel.

“I’m personally looking forward to meeting many more dogs and their owners this year and hopefully we’ll get just as many wonderfully kind reviews for us to retain this award again.”

LateRooms.com spokeswoman, Andrea Tarpey, said: “Guest experience is the single most important measure of how well a hotel is performing and being named as a Simply The Guest Awards winner places The Boar’s Head firmly as the nation’s best loved pet friendly hotel.”
