Dog House Hotel, Abingdon

Enjoy tips to Oxford, the Cotswolds and the North Wessex Downs

Nestled in the outskirts of the historic market town of Abingdon-on-Thames, the Dog House Hotel is an attractive 19th century inn, bar and restaurant ideally situated for exploring Oxford and the surrounding countryside.

A modern hotel stay in a historic setting

Stay at the Dog House Hotel and you’ll find a destination packed with history and character. The hotel was built in the 19th century as a set of stables and kennels for the local landed gentry. And although it’s a modern hotel today, the past is clear in its rustic architecture and the period features throughout the interior. The hotel’s blend of Victorian charm and modern features make it a beautiful venue to host a wedding reception.

The rural charm is evident in each of the rooms but is blended with modern touches to guarantee a comfortable and relaxing stay. The beds are fresh and cosy, the en-suite bathrooms bright and airy, plus you’ll find flatscreen TVs and free Wi-Fi in every bedroom. Befitting the hotel’s past, it’s a dog friendly hotel with rooms especially designated to housing four-legged family members. With such fantastic walking countryside around the hotel, it’s an ideal destination for guests with dogs. You’ll just need to call 0345 608 6040 to check availability and complete your booking to secure one of our fantastic dog friendly rooms.

You’ll find the Dog House Hotel is a countryside residence but with fast access to Oxford and the wealth of shops, cafés, museums and historic sites the city has to offer. People seeking to spend a day in the country can choose between trips to the Cotswolds, the North Wessex Downs or Chiltern Hills. With a host of other attractions around the hotel, from Blenheim Palace and White Horse Hill to Radley Lakes, there’s no risk of running out of sights to see, no matter if you’re looking for culture, nature or city day trips.

Enjoy quality food and drink

You’ll find a welcoming, traditional bar and restaurant at the Dog House, serving up fine wines, real ales and classic British cuisine at great prices. When the weather is fine, take your drinks outside into the large beer garden and covered terrace. And when the weather turns, eat and drink in front of a roaring open fire. The restaurant serves cooked or continental breakfasts for guests each morning, perfect for setting you up for a day of sightseeing.

National Trust properties Great Coxwell Barn and White Horse Hill are nearby, while North Hinksey Conduit House, North Leigh Roman Villa, and Abingdon County Hall Museum, all run by English Heritage, are also firm local favourites. The grandeur of Winston Churchill’s birthplace, Blenhiem Palace, is just 20 minutes away.
