Our Dog Friendly Stay at the Four Seasons Hotel near Crieff in Perthshire


So many families like to travel with their dogs now. They are, rightly so, part of the pack and I completely understand that having two beautiful doggos myself. Lexie and Tulli aren’t getting any younger so we’ve been looking at making more fab memories with them. I want to make sure they feel included and no place does this better than the lovely Four Seasons Hotel in the beautiful Perthshire countryside. We were recently invited along for an overnight stay and everyone enjoyed themselves.


The Four Seasons Hotel is one of the best-kept secrets in The Trossachs National park. It sits with one of the most breath taking views in Scotland, that of westwards from St. Fillans across the 7 miles of Loch Earn. A long established independent hotel, The Four Seasons has recently been taken over and is facing a new era. The lovely owner, Susan, and her handsome dog Finn run a welcoming environment for owner and dog alike. We stayed as a family of 6! Two adults, two kids and two dogs, and we were given a cute little chalet for the night.


When we arrived we had a very warm welcome from Susan and Finn. She explained everything we needed to know for our stay and confirmed our restaurant reservation for the evening. We were handed our keys to our chalet which is located on the hill at the back of the hotel and proceeded to drive our car up and get settled in. There's a handy torch attached to your keys for night time, such a lovely touch.


Our chalet was very special as it had been visited and stayed in by the Beatles, all those years ago, so it was lovely to feel part of history. The chalet was compact but it had everything you would need for a family of 4 plus 2 dogs and it was of course clean. There was the main living area and master bedroom as you opened the front door, complete with TV and Beatles memorabilia. Straight ahead was a little corridor which lead to the bathroom, which had a shower/bath etc, and to the left was a cute bedroom with two smaller beds which the kids couldn't wait to get on. One was on the ground and the other floated above it. As you can imagine there was a fight for the floating bed.


There was tea and coffee facilities, plenty of storage/cupboards if you needed it for your bits and pieces and there were heaters in each room so it always felt cosy and warm when the sun went down. Susan was also very kind and left us a welcome pack in the chalet to get us acquainted with the hotel and surrounding area. The Four Seasons Hotel offer lots of different packages from Mini Moons, Hogmanay breaks as well as Christmas festivities and events. It's worth checking out their website to see everything that's on. Susan's beloved dog Finn even left a special letter for my girls to read and enjoy. It was super cute.


Being located where it is the hotel has some lovely walks to enjoy with your furry friend and there's even a newly built play park a short walk away from the chalet we stayed in. I'd definitely recommend bringing your wellies along for the walks though as it is Scotland and it most likely will rain at some point. The views are honestly amazing at The Four Seasons Hotel. Who needs a TV when you have stunning views out over Loch Earn. I could have just stared out at the loch for the whole time we were there, so peaceful and there's always something to see.


When it comes to dinner time the hotel are happy to also accommodate your dog in the restaurant, they have a dog friendly side that you can be seated in which is very handy. The same can be said for breakfast too, you can be seated in the bar area with your pooch. Don't worry if you forget your dog supplies either. There's food, bowls, blankets and bedding if you find yourself needing it.


I love that this hotel is so dog friendly and really very accommodating when it comes to your furry friend. We had a lovely stay here, our chalet was warm and the beds were comfy and there's plenty of beautiful walks in the area so no excuse not to get that much needed fresh air.


This was a gifted stay in return for an honest review. All opinions are my own.
