The nations most in demand dog hotel – Country Living Magazine


Take a look at where you might have seen us in the press.

Downing Street

We’ve been to 10 Downing Street to meet with the Prime Minister’s business advisor Jimmy McLoughlin to talk about how the government can help entrepreneurs in the South West succeed. What a great meeting. He took a business card too so his dog can come to stay.

Doggy Ice Cream

The Brand Doggy Ice Cream have chosen our picture to market their ice cream! Over the summer 2017 we took a few of our guests on a trip to Salcombe for some sunshine, smells of the sea and Doggy Ice Cream. As you can see from our picture…it went down really well and we managed to capture this picture of our own dog Dillon enjoying his day in Devon.

The Shard

We attended a meeting at The Shard to meet some of the Britains top journalists and unknowingly our poster was on the stage next to them. The Times, Telegraph, Grazia and Vanity Fair writer, Simply Things Mag, City AM and The Country Dog Hotel poster. The event was hosted by Enterprise Nation and it was great to connect with so many different businesses.

In August 2018 we were featured in the National Magazine Country Living. This is a great feature showcasing everything that encapsulates The Country Dog Hotel.

During November 2017 we were invited to speak on Apple FM on their ‘Motivational Monday’ show. Apple FM wanted to hear all about our business, how we started up and the passion behind the business that we love. We had a great time sharing stories of guests that have stayed, our love for rescue dogs and explaining how and what we do and our plans for the future.

Somerset Living

It was lovely to have our interview with Jessica from Somerset Living. What a great magazine with some great features and brilliant local Somerset businesses. She was brilliant with our dog guests and was happy to have lots of cuddles…a perfect human guest! I was really nervous. Looking forward to seeing our feature soon.

Moving forward we would love to inspire women to believe in their ability and have the confidence to take the next step. #SheMeansBusiness : When women succeed, we all win.
