Dog Friendly Hotel in Ditchling

Our pub dates back to the 16th century and is set in the heart of Ditchling; a picturesque village with panoramic South Downs views and rustic charm by the bucket-load. The epitome of a Sussex country inn, we have six hideaway hotel bedrooms, which are perfect for weekend getaways, summer staycations and those who want to be close to Brighton, without being in the city.

Whether you are looking for a coastal getaway, a place to lay your head after exploring the Sussex countryside or you are visiting nearby Brighton, there is plenty to entertain the whole family, including your dogs!

Dog Friendly Holidays

Our dog-friendly bedrooms provide everything you need to keep tails wagging this summer. Complete with their own doggy bed or blanket, bowl and tasty treats. There’s no need to leave anyone behind this holiday.

Dog Friendly Accommodation

Our iconic dog-friendly hotel rooms are individually designed to reflect the heritage of Ditchling with all the modern amenities you might need during your stay.

The Bull is ideally located so you can experience both the tranquil peace of Ditchling whilst also being only 10 minutes from the heart of Brighton and less than 1 hour from central London.

Our Restaurant

From our famous pub classics to fabulous fish specials, our delicious dishes will keep you going whether it’s to kick-start the day, a leisurely lunch after a walk, or dinner on your return from the City.

Dog House Rules

  1. Each of our dog-friendly bedrooms has space for 2 dogs and is charged at £15 per night per room, whether you bring one or two furry friends.
  2. Although most people’s days are brightened by seeing a dog, please keep other guests in mind.
  3. We know your doggy may be excited about your getaway but, please keep in mind that there may be a cost for any doggy damages.
  4. We don’t like the idea of your pup getting lonely, so please do not leave them unsupervised at any time.
  5. Your room will come with dog treats, a dog bed or blanket and a dog bowl. However, we know dogs love their own beds so feel free to bring your own.
  6. There’s nothing better than when your four-legged friend comes with a friend of their own, but please note we cannot accept any more than 2 dogs per room.
  7. It goes without saying that your doggy may get muddy. Your room comes with a dog blanket but if your dog is particularly large or enjoys getting very muddy then please bring an extra blanket for them.
  8. We know your doggy might get comfy on the sofa at home, but while with us please keep dogs off the beds and soft furnishings.
