Take a look at where you might have seen us in the press.
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.
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.
Coming August 2018 – In August 2018 we are being featured in the National Magazine Country Living. This promises to be a great feature showcasing everything that encapsulates The Country Dog Hotel but unfortunately you’ll have to wait to find out more about this Press item.
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.
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.

The Somerset County Gazette
The Somerset Gazette decided to write about us in their business section during November 2017. They were keen to find out how our story may inspire other people to follow their passion and turn it into a business reality. 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.
