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

Guests with 4 paws are most welcome. Up to two pups can stay with you (in one of our dog-friendly bedrooms) for an additional £20 per night. Your pup will get a VIP welcome with a doggy hamper full of tasty tail-wagging treats, a doggy bed or blanket and bowl.

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.

Dog House Rules

1. Each of our dog-friendly bedrooms has space for up to 2 dogs. A dog stay is charged at £20 per night (whether there’s 1 or 2 dogs with you).
2. Your room will come with a fabulous doggy hamper full of tasty tail-wagging treats, a doggy bed or blanket and bowl. We know your pup might love their own doggy bed, so please feel free to bring this if you prefer.
3. Although most people’s days are brightened by seeing a dog, some aren’t, so please keep in this in mind and leave your pup on a lead in all shared areas.
4. We don’t like the idea of your pup getting lonely, so please don’t leave them unsupervised at any time.
5. We love it when a four-legged friend comes with a friend of their own, but 2 per room is our maximum.
6. It goes without saying that your dog loves long walkies. We do provide a dog blanket but if your pup has a penchant for muddy puddles, please bring an extra blanket for de-muddying.
7. We know your doggy might get comfy on the sofa at home, but while with us, please don’t let your pup sleep on beds and soft furnishings.
