As a family owned and run company with a passion for animals, we look forward to welcoming you and your pet to The Red Carnation Hotel Collection. All of our hotels are pet friendly and provide a range of services including a selection of beds, floor mats, food and drink bowls and especially prepared menus. Dog sitting and walking services are also available.
Many of our hotels are located within close proximity to public parks and beaches, and our concierge teams are on hand to recommend areas to explore and can provide local maps and “pet friendly” information such as grooming services, pet friendly taxi/transfer and local veterinary practices.
We do request prior notice of any VIPs at the time of reservation and a small deposit is required upon arrival in case of any damage, which will be returned to you at the end of your stay.
Beautiful walks in Dorset
Pets at The Milestone
Meet our pets
Ruling the roost at The Oyster Box
Skabenga (which means hooligan or vagabond in Zulu), is the resident cat at The Oyster Box who has gone from local feline to royal celebrity!
Previously a stray, Skabenga wandered onto the property and was fed tasty (expensive!) treats and has since made the hotel his home for over 10 years. He's a firm guest favourite and even made the local news when he temporarily went missing recently!
To find out more, become his friend on Facebook to see what he's been getting up to.
Wolfhounds of Ashford
Cronan (the grey one) and his brother Garvan (the wheaten coloured one) are our pair of resident Irish Wolfhounds who reside in the grounds of Ashford Castle.
Although still young, they are already sizeable and enjoy running around the vast estate! Each morning they are taken into the castle after their morning walk at 10:00am to meet our guests and are already proving a big hit!
