Dog-friendly travel, for the perfect stay

About us

Welcome to Hudson’s Choice, the website for dog owners who like to travel with their dog, but don’t like to compromise on style or quality.

Have you ever wondered why dog-friendly travel has to mean making a compromise on style? We did. Which is why we’ve launched Hudson’s Choice. Because it shouldn’t.

It can be so disappointing to discover a lovely hotel, only to then discover they have a strict “no dogs” policy. But worse still is to arrive somewhere that claims to be pet-friendly, only to find you can’t take them with you when you go to eat and you can’t leave them in the room either. So much for that relaxing weekend away.

We’ve found that finding great places to stay with Hudson can be tricky. What was needed was somewhere bringing together the sort of places we want to eat in and stay at. A directory of  some of the finest places to eat, sleep and walk in the UK that allow you to bring your dog and your taste. And here we are. This site is a carefully handpicked collection of fabulous places to go with your dog. Everywhere on the site has been checked out by our team and Hudson himself has even stayed at several (these are the ones marked as “Hudson Approved”).

Have a look around. There are plenty of weekends, hotels, pubs and walks worth checking out. While you’re here, if you haven’t already, sign up to Treat Street, our regular newsletter, so we can keep you up to date with the latest openings, offers and special deals.

So, who’s Hudson? He’s a three-year old flat-coated retriever fond of food, footballs, muddy puddles and swimming (the muddier the water, the better).

Property owners

If you own or run somewhere that you think should be listed, or if know about somewhere we’ve missed that other dog owners would love, then drop us an email, pick up the dog and bone or do something clever via social media to pass on the details. We’ll check it out and if it passes muster, we’ll pass on the good news. All our contact details can be found here.

Our “dogcierge” service

If you would like us to arrange and book a brilliant dog-friendly break for you, we’re happy to suggest where to stay, where to eat and drink and where to walk. And we’ll pull it all together and even book it  for you. While we aim to do as much as possible for fellow dog owners for free, we do ask a (very reasonable) fee for this extra service. Email us for details.
