How To Treat Your Dog To Their Own ‘Pooch Holiday’

Estate - 24.05.21

We love doggies here at Combermere Abbey and we truly believe that a trip to our self-catering cottages is as much a holiday for them as it is for their owners. All 10 of the contained cottages that we have on-site are dog-friendly, and we often welcome furry friends to the estates, largely in thanks to all of the magical woodlands and open spaces we have here at Combermere Abbey.

But why stop at bringing your dog along to Combermere? Why not treat them to their very own ‘pooch holiday’? As pet owners, we know how much they deserve it! Below our team have put together some tips and ideas for treating your furry friend to their very own relaxing break.

6 Ways To Treat Your Dog To Their Own Pooch Holiday

Give them some TLC

A lot of dogs love being groomed, and for that, we can absolutely recommend Dachshing Doggies, at our very own Parkview Business Centre on the edge of the Combermere Abbey estate. Packages start from just £15 and include a shampoo, blow-dry, trim, nail clip and ear clean. As lockdown lifts a lot of humans have been enjoying long-overdue haircuts, manicures and other treatments. It’s time for your furry friends to enjoy some TLC too. You can drop them off at Dachshing Doggies during your stay at Combermere Abbey’s self-catering cottages, we promise they’ll leave feeling truly ‘paw-fect’.

Presents all round

Did you know every dog that visits Combermere Abbey gets their own ‘pooch pack’? It includes a blanket, treats, and a bowl. From our experience, we know our furry friends love getting presents, especially if there’s something tasty in there with their name on it! One way to treat your dog to their own pooch holiday is to shower them with gifts, and when you come to Combermere Abbey we take care of that for you with every booking.

Explore new places together

Something most dogs love is exploring new places, enjoying all the new smells and finding out which other doggies have visited those places too. They might even meet some new friends! At Combermere Abbey, there’s a world to be explored without ever needing to leave the estate, whether that’s down by the mere, or in our woodlands. However, if you do plan on exploring the wider Cheshire and Shropshire areas, then we are blessed with many fantastic local dog walks on our doorstep too. Explore more woodlands at Delamere Forest, enjoy a stroll around the water at Nantwich Lake or hike some hills at Bickerton Hills. You can find more of our dog-friendly walk suggestions in this blog post, written by one of Combermere Abbey’s very special owners, Zola.

Bring them out for food

We don’t advise giving doggies human food, but this doesn’t mean that they have to miss out on the fun of going to the local pub. We have several pubs on our doorstep in both Cheshire and Shropshire that are dog-friendly, including the Combermere Arms, Cholmondeley Arms, The Sandstone and the Pheasant Inn. Who knows, your furry friends might even be greeted with their own bowl of water and a few belly rubs.

Have a mini photoshoot

We all love showing off our pets, and the Combermere Abbey estate gives you the perfect natural photo backdrop to do this. Why not treat your dog to their own mini photoshoot? We recently hosted our annual woodland walk at Combermere Abbey, which was open to the public over a period of two months, but that is accessible by guests all year round. Don’t just take our word for it, you can see from some of the photos below that the walk is one of the most magnificent places to snap up a few insta-worthy shots of your pooch.

Meet some new friends

Dachsing Doggies are hosting a Daxi Day Out on 4th July, with tickets priced at just £8.50 each. If your furry friends enjoy meeting other dogs, then this is a great way for them to socialise and have some fun. £1 from each ticket will also go towards The Red Foundation. The event will include a huge sausage dog walk, ball pit, puppuccinos, best-dressed awards, photoshoots and more. It will take place at Park View Business Centre, so perfect for guests of Combermere Abbey who are visiting around this time.
