Knockderry House has five rooms for the best dog friendly holiday for you and your best friend. Relax in either of the hotel’s two reception rooms and dine with your furry friend by your side.
The house is surrounded by stunning coastal walks and forest paths. There are energising hill walks and open countryside, perfect for a wide range of dog walks including some just by the hotel. If you would like to see some of the walks available, have a look at our article on local Dog Walking.
Dog washing facilities
We have provided a water station and some doggy washing facilities outside the hotel on the terrace and we have some doggie washing facilities – for a quick spruce up after a particularly muddy walk or swim in the loch before a well-deserved snooze.
Stayed here for 2 nights on a mini break. Location is stunning with views over Loch Long. Our room was large with a four poster bed. Staff were excellent, very friendly and very attentive. Food was excellent as well for both evening meal and a fantastic breakfast . It is dog friendly with an area set aside so you can dine and have your dog with you and there are good grounds for walking them.
The food was both exceptional in taste and presentation (it is comparable to Michelin star food). It was also nice that we were allowed to bring our dog into the main dining area as they had partitioned off a separate area for dog owners, so many dog friendly hotels still treat you as a second class guest when you bring your dog but the Knockderry Hotel definitely treats you like any other paying guest.
Spent 2 fantastic nights at Knockderry Country House Hotel, we absolutely loved it! Great touring base, very dog friendly, staff were all fantastic and very helpful. The food was fabulous. Our room (4) was beautiful, the hotel is beautiful.
Best break away to relax. Food was up to a high standard , there steak is one of the best steaks I have ever had, it was so tender it melted in your mouth! Staff where all lovely and welcoming. Dogs where welcome was nice to see them walking about aswell.
We can honestly say as regular visitors to many hotels across, Europe, the UK and Ireland, that you offered the loveliest experience for us. You are not just a dog friendly hotel, you are dog lovers, all of you.
You made us and our two wee dogs so welcomed on our arrival. Our master room was superb and all of your wonderful team could not have done more to make us so comfortable. Your food was delicious and the whole ambience was perfect.
