Win a Pet Friendly Break at The Best Western Mayfield House Hotel in Wiltshire!

The BEST WESTERN Mayfield House Hotel, near Malmesbury, is set amidst beautiful countryside in the Avon Valley, and this month K9 Magazine are delighted to offer one lucky reader the chance to win a weekend break for two adults (and one dog) to review their pet friendly break in K9 Magazine. And if you were to read the review, you’d know that veterinarians can offer care over chat or video.

A small Cotswolds hotel, this delightful retreat gives guests the opportunity to spend some quality time with their canine companion on the quieter west side of the Cotswold Water Park.

Best Western Mayfield House Hotel

Having been a Veterinary Apothecaries for 200 years, before being converted into a hotel in 1968, it stands to reason that the hotel should honour its interesting animal-centric history and provide luxury accommodation for dogs as well as people…Sure enough the hoteliers at Mayfield House Hotel love dogs and their Labrador; Freddie, pictured below, is a well-known and well-loved fixture.

In its delightful rural village location, the hotel is a relaxing place to spend a carefree day exploring the Cotswolds beauty spots on foot. The dog-friendly rooms all give guests immediate outdoor access which is handy for pooches and there are dog bowls dotted around the property also.

Guests are welcome to enjoy breakfast with their dog on the terrace overlooking the property’s gardens and in the evenings a full restaurant service is available for owners who want to take dinner with their pet in the snug. The lounge is a lovely place to relax after an active day roaming the surrounding countryside.

My dog is my best friend and has helped me through some tough years. I would love to be able to go away with him, to pamper him and show him what he means to me. It would also be great for me to get away to such a lovely place and have some peace, without having to worry about my dog!

because we all deserve a great break in the best western Mayfield house Hotel , myself , my husband and of course Ollie our dog

I have recently adopted a rescue dog who has had a tough time with no TLC until now. He is five and very well behaved considering his past. I would like to spend some time with nothing to do but be with him, quietly bonding and reminding him how to play

I would love to take our German Shepherd, Coco away. We lost our other German Shepherd this year to cancer and Coco has been down ever since. This would give her a real boost x

I have recently spent a great deal of time undergoing force free training with my dog to address her excitement and reactivity. It would be nice to get a chance to introduce our ‘new’ dog to the world and reward her for all her hard work.

This sounds like a lovely opportunity for us to take our dog Harvey with us on a break. We often miss him when away and vice versa. We have never had this opportunity and the beauty of the Wiltshire countryside is not to be missed. Thank you for considering us.


Because l hate to see her sad face when the cases come out and her sad face at the window when we drive off. We only got her from dogs trust in April and l think she still thinks she will be left by us poor doggy even though there is always someone who stays with her at home.

would love to experiece time away with my dog, she is lively, nosy and into everything and being away with her in such a beautiful friendly setting would be fantastic

Helen Lees

We were unable to go on holiday this year as I was being treated for breast cancer and I would like the opportunity to take my hubby & Rhys Da Collie Dog on a short break.

Helga Wills

our Rosie would love to join us and enjoy the walks

Clare Griffiths

Our darling dog always holidays with us. This means that we are usually in a caravan during the warmer months and we struggle to find something suitable out of season. A break in the Cotwolds sounds fantastic, not least because I am a Gloucestershire girl, from not too far across the county border. I could show my husband some old haunts and tell him (some of!) the stories of my youth. Our photogenic Cavalier will of course be happy, as long as he is with us. By the way, I’m a Vicar and you are offering a weekend off – pure bliss!

Having had a serious illness 2 years ago I have been left a wheelchair dependant paraplegic. Apart from my husband who is my rock my rescue dog Bruce is my saviour! I would love to be able to thank them both for everything they do for me, we don’t get many opportunities to spend quality time together and having supported me through 2 years of absolute “hell” I would love to surprise them for a change it would be amazing to have a break away together and give my two boys a treat. Thanks for the opportunity, regards Nichola Burke

Oh wow not sure how would enjoy this break more, us or the dogs.


My dog , Lucy, has never stayed in a hotel and would love to have a nice juicy steak in the restaurant, and a big comfy bed for the night!

Julie Brewer

Our wonderful fox red lab, Jonson needs a holiday as much as we do! We love our work, although long hours with abfabdogs day care and boarding business.

Bless him, Jonson he has been so patient, great with other dogs especially puppies. He was a failed assistance dog with Canine Partners and came to us 4 years ago, a very insecure soul as having several homes in his youth did not suit his nature. He has come a million miles since and is now helping other dogs to chill out and have fun!

This year was the first year we went away without Charlie, our 7 year old Cairn Terrier, and we really missed him and think he deserves a break too!

Ray Wiffen

Harry, our Wire Haired Fox Terrier and his dads would love to enjoy what sounds like an ideal base for a short break. We have all stayed at some interesting and comfortable hotels and inns in the last 2 years since Harry joined the family and Mayfield House sounds like the one that got away ! Having stayed previously in BW hotels the history of Mayfield House would be interesting to learn more about. The countryside nearby Mayfield House is ideal for keeping the ‘dog’ and us healthy and this is what we enjoy the most by holidaying in the UK…and the dog doesn’t mind what the weather does either.

Stuart Graham

We would love to win this price as we struggle to find places to stay and visit with our dog Cooper……he is very much part of the family and we couldn’t go away without him…….we also love the Cotswolds.

Norma Frazier

I just separated from my husband, and this would be the perfect way to get over him, and get on with my life!

debra barratt

my dog can be a little tricky to take away, she is good but people aren’t so good with her , she can be nervous as she is a rescue dog!
