We were lucky enough to escape for a chilled weekend in the warmth of Ox Pasture Hall. Having had a very busy winter (lucky us) we decided to treat ourselves to a night away. We did not want to leave our dog behind though. For us, he’s as part of the adventure and love taking him to explore new places.
After asking for dog friendly recommendations, we booked for dinner, bed and breakfast at Ox Pasture Hall. Located near Scarborough, it is well placed for visiting both land and sea. If you prefer the moors and forests, then there are plenty of places to visit close by, with the option to visit the coast too.
After checking into our upgraded suite (thanks Ox Pasture Hall!) with its four poster, lounge area and gorgeous bathroom, we made our way down to the bar for lunch. In need of some sea air, we drove into Scarborough for a bracing walk by the sea and a visit to some very welcoming dog friendly shops for a little bit of retail therapy.

Dinner at the hotel did not disappoint, neither did the staff who were friendly to dogs and human guests alike.
All that sea air ensured we had a very good nights sleep, ready for a delicious and relaxing breakfast before we said our goodbyes (don’t worry, we’ll be back) with time to visit our favourite dog friendly beach in North Yorkshire.
Fraisthorpe beach is what we look for in an English beach. Unspoilt, dog friendly, miles of sand, a few rock pools, the odd wind surfer and plenty and plenty of dogs to play with. There’s an honesty box in the car park, plus basic loos and a dog friendly café.
When you’re in need of a night or two away, we would recommend a visit to Ox Pasture Hall and Fraisthorpe Beach. Even if you’ve not got a dog, both places are worth a visit!
