Why is Craig y Nos Castle such a great place for Dogs?  If your dog could only tell you.....



Here's a dog friendly Castle in Wales. Surrounded by Mountains. I'll show this to my owner.
Dog Friendly B&B - Craig y Nos Castle in Wales


It has nice walks for me in its dog friendly grounds, plenty of space to roam freely off the lead. I won't get lost, but if I do, their dog friendly parkland is all fenced in.

Lots of dogs come here, and I can chase after all the exciting new scents.

There's a river I can swim in, and a lake I can take a dip in. My owner can throw stones and sticks for me in the river. It is nice and shallow and I can bound across to the other side and back.

Dog Friendly Walks in
our own Country Park

Plenty of gardens and informal long grassy areas where I can run freely - that's nice. 11 Acres of land at my Castle in Wales and 40 acres of dog friendly Country Park I can explore.

The water looks cool and clear. Unlike Jack on the left, I promise I won't get muddy.

I'll stick to the gravelled paths, but if I do stray into the fields and have a good roll, I promise I'll have a wash after in the river's sparkling mountain water.

By evening I'll keep my owner company in the dog friendly Patti Bar, where dogs are allowed to sit with their owners.

I see dogs come free, so there is no extra charge for me to come with my owner.

Let's keep my master and mistress company, and save on kennel fees!  After all, I know they'd be lonely and miss me if I didn't come with them!

That's Jack, the Castle's Golden Retriever and the white Alsatian is Sheeba.

I'd better have a look through the Castle's dog friendly accommodation now. Let's see if I can find a large enough room for me to lie down comfortably in, for the night.

I've heard on the dog-line there be rabbits here - and moles too (ssshhhhh).  It's a castle, so there's plenty of space for me and my owner to stretch our legs.
