Dog Friendly

​As Knoll House is a dog-friendly hotel, you can explore the Jurassic Coast with your dog by your side.

Dog-friendly hotel

We understand that pets are part of the family, that’s why we welcome up to two well-behaved dogs per booking here at Knoll House! With acres of unspoilt countryside criss-crossed with walking tracks and trails, as well as the dramatic Jurassic Coast, Studland is an ideal base for a dog-friendly holiday.

We charge £20 per dog per night, and ask that you bring your own pet bedding. With the exception of the restaurant, children’s areas and Wardroom, you can freely walk your dog around the hotel grounds and gardens. Not only that, we offer a doggy dining service where you can now eat breakfast, lunch, afternoon tea and dinner with your canine companion in our dedicated dog area. You can also take a dip in our heated outdoor pool and leave your dog in the shaded area by the outdoor bar, as long as they are kept on a lead.

Dog-friendly attractions

Studland Bay is a popular location for peaceful pet-friendly holidays, as many of the local beaches and attractions welcome dogs. A short stroll from the hotel is the sandy coast – South Beach at the bottom of the bay and Knoll Beach at the north are both dog-friendly beaches all year round, though please keep your pet on a lead during the busier months. Many of the local attractions are also dog friendly, from museums to castles. You can find out more about dog-friendly activities in Dorset at the Dorset Dogs website.
