If you’re looking for a stunning country hotel in East Sussex, for you and your pet, then look no further than Deans Place Hotel in beautiful Alfriston.

If you’re one of the 9 million UK dog owners (24% of households)* then it won’t have escaped your notice that unfortunately many hotels do not feel as fondly about man’s best friend and are reluctant to welcome you and your furry four-legged friend with open arms.  At Deans Place Hotel in East Sussex we like to do things a bit differently; we understand that a break in the country should be a leisurely affair for all the family; we cater to all manner of individual requests – and this extends to dog owners and their beloved hounds!

Deans Place: a pet-friendly hotel in East Sussex

At Deans Place Hotel in East Sussex we don’t think any member of the family should be left at home or checked into a kennel or cattery.  We welcome dogs and cats to stay in selected bedrooms so that they may have an enjoyable break, too.  We have even accommodated the odd pony in our fenced paddock – the paddock also has a water trough and field shelter for the ultimate in equine comfort!
