Alex and his dog “Jaffa” are great fans of Independent Hostels.  They often escape to a hostel or a bunkhouse for a weekends walking and find them a  great source of dog friendly accommodation.  Not that all hostels and bunkhouse will take dogs but over 100 of them do. You can find a map showing  dog friendly hostels and bunkhouses here.     We are hoping to publish more blogs about their future adventures.

Last winter Jaffa and Alex visited NEW ING LODGE and had a great time.  They went to the local chip shop, which was dog friendly and provided free refills on chips !  Then had lovely evening back the hostel lounge with Jaffa cuddled up by the wood burning stove.  The next morning they had a great early morning walk to the Abbey returning to a big breakfast at New Ing Lodge.

In Wales they stayed at VAGABOND BUNKHOUSE near  Betsy Coed and had great weekend away walking.  Alex really liked the bunk beds at Vagabond which were very comfy and private. 

Another dog friendly bunk barn Alex and Jaffa recommend is the ROYAL OAK BUNKBARN in the peak district, next to the Tissington Trial which provides walks along an old railway.  Alex says the Royal Oak does great breakfasts and other meals .
