Details

Nestled in the heart of the countryside, the unconventionally named The Dog House was originally built as a stables but now houses 20 stunning bedrooms.

The Dog House Hotel Frilford Heath near Abindgon and Oxford, sits with easy access to Abingdon via the A420. The traditional Dog House started its life in the early 18th century as a smallholding, and in later years became an inn in 1847.

The name of the Dog House Hotel has rather an unusual origin. In days gone by, wealthy farming gentry sent their offspring to be educated in Oxford and would arrive there complete with their horses and hunting dogs. The Colleges allowed their students to stable horses but not the dogs! Alas, with nowhere else to house the animals, the proprietor of the local inn offered an invaluable 'dog sitting' service and the venue became known as the Dog House. There is also a tradition that the Dog House came by its name because it was once the kennels for a local hunt.

Today the Dog House Hotel is a pretty country hotel set in the beautiful Oxfordshire countryside. A firm favourite with locals and travellers alike and a great base for exploring the local area.

There are 20 comfortable en-suite bedrooms including 2 feature rooms. All the rooms have colour TV, tea and coffee making facilities, free WiFi, iron and ironing boards. 

Superb food from the seasonal menu is served in the restaurant and conservatory, with a traditional bar and large garden to relax in with a great range of cask ales, premium lagers and fine wines.

With a license to host a wedding ceremony and room for a wedding reception, enjoy a traditional English wedding at the Dog House and let them take care of your special day.
