Dogs descend on Down Hall

Over the May bank holiday, hundreds of cockapoos and cavapoos descended on luxury Essex countryside hotel, Down Hall Hotel, Spa & Estate, for Pop+ Bark’s biggest outdoor dog event to date.

Located just 45 minutes from central London and set within 110-acres of stunning grounds, Down Hall together with leading canine events company, Pop + Bark, put on quite the paw-ty for both humans and furry friends, hosting over 300 cockapoos and cavapoos.

Pooches enjoyed a dedicated Pupuccino Bar and a doggy BBQ (plus the occasional pose for the camera), while humans explored the outdoor shopping market lined with hand-picked stalls. There were themed cocktails flowing throughout the afternoon keeping guests well-watered, alongside epic barbecue bites served by the hotel's Executive Chef Robert Peace, including spiced lamb koftas, lime aubergine steaks and pulled pork.

Down Hall is proud to be a dog-friendly hotel with 10 West Wing patio bedrooms to welcome four-legged friends from far and wide.

Keep your eyes peeled for further events at the hotel later this year. For further information or to book a stay, please visit: www.downhall.co.uk
