New Forest Escape with man's best friend

Looking to book a luxurious New Forest retreat but don’t want to leave man’s best friend behind? Here at Burley Manor we believe you shouldn’t have to, which is why we’re dog friendly. With large gardens, Burley heathlands right on our door step and beautiful dog friendly boutique suites for you to stay in – We make the perfect escape for you both!

When choosing which of our beautiful rooms to stay in, we recommend choosing one of our garden suites featuring antique furniture, an impressive colour palette that creates the perfect place to relax, plenty of space to sit back and enjoy the garden-facing views, and doors that open out onto our beautiful grounds so you and your dog can enjoy the fresh country air.

Once you’ve both been welcomed into our manor and shown to your room, you’ll find treats for all to enjoy; a dog mat, a welcome bag of delicious healthy snacks and treats from Paws Deli Kitchen in Lymington and special bowls for your furry friend to eat and drink from. And for you, you’ll find home-baked cranberry and white chocolate cookies from our kitchen, a selection of Birchall Tea and hot drinks perfect for enjoying in the comfort of your room.

Now that you and your pooch have settled in it’s time to decide what to do next. We recommend heading up to Burley heathlands for a walk in the evening sun before heading to dinner. Burley heathlands are only a short walk from us – Simply walk to the end of our drive, turn left up through Burley Village to the top of the hill and you’ll find large open plains stretching for miles, with New Forest ponies, donkeys and cattle all grazing happily together. Don’t forget to keep your dog on his lead and follow the New Forest walking code.

Once you’ve finished your walk, choose to eat in our lounge with your furry friend by your side, or let him rest after his latest adventure in your room whilst you head into our restaurant for dinner.

After you’ve finished feasting, retire to our drawing room for a night cap, where your dog can join you too for a relaxing evening. There’s no need to rush, so once you’re ready head back to your room and settle down for the evening – We’ll see you both in the morning!

Dogs can stay for £30 a night for the first dog and £15 for the second. Subject to availability.
