At The Kings Head Hotel
Elegant interiors, with soft lighting and muted colours throughout, inspire relaxation as soon as you enter the grand glass doors at this country town retreat. Dog-friendly rooms include designer furniture, Nespresso machines, luxurious linens, cosy lounge chairs and homemade biscuits.
A wonderful selection of rooms awaits, with slumber spots in all categories featuring either a spacious walk-in shower, or a shower over the bath.
Classic rooms have an intimate feel, but are still roomy enough for a king-sized bed and a stay with a small dog. Superior or Deluxe rooms are pleasingly spacious, all featuring a separate seating area.
For maximum indulgence, Feature rooms are the hotel’s most bespoke, with a variety of throwback features. Georgian bedrooms feature original wood panelling and high ceilings, a Tudor room will charm you with its exposed beams and fireplaces, while a journey to Medieval times includes pitched ceilings and exposed brick walls. Elemis toiletries are an added treat here.
A bowl will be provided for your dog, but be sure to bring fido’s bed along with you.
Human and hound abound
With acres of stunning Cotswolds countryside to explore, don’t forget your walking gear. Bring your Dubarrys and your dog’s Barbour coat and you’ll be ready to start sniffing out the picturesque parks and wondrous dog-friendly woodland in no time.
Relax and revive
A trip to the enchanting spa is a must. The Vaulted Spa features a steam room, infra-red sauna, experience shower and hot tub in its Thermal Suite, with scented candles and exposed brickwork creating a dreamy ambience that will have you drifting off in no time. Lubatti and MONU products feature highly on the pamper menu; take your pick of the treatments, enjoyed in one of four rooms, or treat your cuticles at the nail bar.
To ensure a peaceful visit, the Thermal Suite must be reserved in advance (at a charge of £10 per person for a two hour session), as do any additional therapies. The Thermal Suite is open from 10am Sunday – Wednesday (last entry at 3pm), and from 9.30am Thursday – Saturday (last entry at 5.30pm).
Relax and revive
There is a small gym at the hotel, open 24 hours.
