PetsPyjamas

According to a survey among PetsPyjamas customers, 82% plan to take their dog on holiday with them in the UK or abroad this year and six out of 10 dog owners would even take their pet on their honeymoon if they could.

And the size of the market continues to grow, with 12 million households - 46% - having pets, many with more than one, bringing the pet population in the UK to 58 million.

Ravenstone Manor in Cumbria was deemed to have the Waggiest Welcome, while Hotel Endsleigh in Devon got the Best Luxury Dog-Friendly Hotel and The Milestone Hotel in London own the Pampered Pet Award.

Red Kite Barn, Wales won the Home from Home Award; New Park Manor, Hampshire got the Fido’s Family Award; Belmond Le Manoir, Oxfordshire was picked for the Gourmet Hotel Award and Chateau de la Motte in Normandy, France was deemed to be the Best European Destination.

The White Horse in Sussex got the People’s Choice Award.

ttgluxury’s own April Hutchinson was also fully supportive of the awards, acting as an ambassador for PetsPyjamas.

She said: “There’s no doubting we are a nation of animal lovers, which is a wonderful thing to see. Our pets are often like members of the family, so it makes sense they would be cared for as such, given treats and included in all elements of life, including holidays.

 

"With everyone’s leisure time increasingly cramped, it’s great to see a company that recognises this by taking the hassle out of sourcing locations where pets are welcomed with open arms. Knowing where to be able to recommend certainly gives our readers an added way of ensuring their customers get the best possible service and experience on their travels.”

 

But while many hotels have cottoned on to the puppurtunity to host dogs and owners, 63% of PetsPyjamas customers said they still feel hotels could be more pet-friendly.
