Belmond Le Manoir Quat’Saisons Awarded ‘Gourmet Getaways’ in PetsPyjamas’ Dog-Friendly Travel Awards

With a brand new year of possible adventures ahead, leading dog-friendly holiday company since 2014, PetsPyjamas, reveals the winners of their Dog-Friendly Travel Awards, with Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons in Great Milton, Oxfordshire winning the title of Gourmet Getaways.

Selected from thousands of PetsPyjamas’ truly welcoming dog-friendly hotels, cottages, country houses and B&Bs in the UK and abroad, Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons is one of 12 winners, identified as being worthy of a dog’s future paw miles, with a category to please every kind of hound (and their human).

Judged in-line with PetsPyjamas’ consistent gold-standard of dog-friendliness, the awards took into consideration a dog-loving atmosphere and staff at all times; three or more dog-friendly rooms available to book; four-legged access to some of the property’s communal areas and the ability to dine with their owners with special pet menus being a bonus; dog facilities and provisions such as a bed, bowls and treats in the property; and nearby dog-friendly attractions such as a fabulous doggy walks or a dog-friendly beach.

Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons impressed PetsPyjamas judges and received their Gourmet Getaways award thanks to their first-class food famously created by celebrated chef Raymond Blanc and utilising the freshest, best quality ingredients from the two-acre kitchen garden. Viewed as a dog-friendly gastro getaway must for foodies, judges loved the grand manor house, in its beautiful setting, offering the best in old-fashioned luxury, with impeccable service, magnificent rooms, and an award-winning restaurant that promises one of Britain’s finest gastronomic experiences. They also recognised the property’s bow wow factor too – secret places within the property’s lawns pampered pets to explore and all fuss they receive from the staff.

Speaking about their award, Eveline Noort, General Manager at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons says:“We are delighted to have won the Gourmet Getaways title in PetsPyjamas Travel Awards. During the last 18 months, we have spent more time than ever with our pets and they play a huge part in our family life. It is wonderful that our guests want to bring them here to Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons to be part of family celebrations.  We have three beautiful dog-friendly bedrooms, each individually designed offering supreme comfort and elegance, as well as small, heated kennels, chewy toys, comfy dog beds and Le Chameau boots at the ready for your countryside walks during your stay.”

PetsPyjamas Managing Director James Williams also comments: “The canine population has grown massively since the first lockdown, so the hospitality industry has really stepped up their game when it comes to welcoming four-legged friends. Having been at the forefront of dog-friendly holidays since 2014, PetsPyjamas really knows what makes the perfect dog-cation and our awards recognise the properties that excel in their own breed of break! With 12 properties to choose, hounds and their humans now have a brilliant bucket list to work through in 2022! We congratulate Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat’Saisons for their place in the awards.”
