The NHD team were very fortunate to be asked to visit the beautiful Ston Easton Park country house hotel this weekend.
Since the 1980’s Ston Easton Park have welcomed dogs to stay with their owners with open arms – they even have their own on-site dog 'Oscar', who is announced as the real boss of the establishment, and when we first arrived he was the first to greet us.
Set in 37 acres of beautiful Wiltshire countryside and with a river running through the estate, Ston Easton Park felt like a real get away, and we were in for a treat. As well as the warm welcome from Oscar, the staff were very relaxed and welcoming, fussing over their four-legged guests, our film crew and pooches felt immediately at home.
The room was very spacious and comfortable, and the rest of the hotel followed this trend. The food was amazing, and we enjoyed the chance to dine with our dogs joining us in the lounge rather than the restaurant (which has to keep dogs out to adhere to health and safety rules). The view from our room was simply stunning, and the antique furniture throughout the venue with the large ornate ceilings meant we could sit for hours, simply enjoying looking around the rooms. We could go on about what a wonderful time we had, but we’d rather show you in our video review coming up shortly on the Naturally Happy Dogs website.
We would like to thank everyone at Ston Easton Park for inviting us, and making us feel so welcome. We have a feeling we will be returning in the future as normal customers, when we find time in our busy schedules!

It was amazingly quick and easy to find out that two of the attending dogs weren't pregnant and the other had 7 puppy fetuses that were just 3-4 weeks old!
We look forward to receiving pictures of the litter after they're born.
