Guest Post – Tilly visits The Angel Hotel, Lavenham

Posted By Hazel Winstanley / 29th September 2018 / Hotels / 0 Comments

Hi my doggie friends,

Feeling very excited as Hum, Dum and I are off on a little holiday to Suffolk. I know as they’ve been talking about it and they’ve packed the car up with my crate, favourite rugs and bag of toys. They’ve got my food (yum) and my drinking bowl.

I watched them packing their bags too and I decided to sit on top of one so they wouldn’t forget me!

The journey was long but I snoozed on the back seat of the car with one eye on my Hum.

At last we arrived, and we parked in the market square opposite a very cosy looking inn.

People were sitting outside as the sun was still shining. We went in and were greeted nicely- I even got a biscuit from a special tub near the fireplace ( clock for later! Maybe if I look cute I’ll get another ? )  Seems like a friendly pub.

Hum and Dum booked in and we were shown to our room. We live in a bungalow,  and I didn’t like the stairs so Hum picked me up. Hum told the man I was too small to go up alone- secretly I enjoyed the cuddle!

Our room was big with a creaky floor.  Dum put up my crate- yippee ……my favourite, sleeping so I can see both of them!

Played with my toys for a while while Hum and Dum talked about the room etc – heard them saying “very clean, good ensuite, quality bedding, nice duvet and pillows, fluffy towels, tea/coffee tray/ biscuits, oh look there’s a great TV”.  My ears pricked up when I heard “biscuits “ but I don’t think any will be given to me they (Dum ate one when watching TV and Hum was in the bath).

Hum was a bit grumpy as she’d booked room Room 7 but a bigger dog got there first!   Apparently it’s better for dog owners as it is large and has its own entrance at street level. I heard them say downstairs that we can swap to room 7 for our second night so maybe that will be even better.

We went out for a little walk in the hotel garden at the back ( Great sniffing! No chance of getting out though as there is a big gate at the back). From there we went to a small park next door, then back into the pub for Hum and Dum’s dinner (and mine).

Biscuits as usual for me but Hum and Dum ate delicious food judging by the smells. I snoozed under the table.

Off to bed, straight to sleep as it was very quiet at night even though it was in the middle of the town.

At breakfast time we sat in the same place as we had for dinner, Hum and Dum ate a big cooked breakfast – I got 2 biscuits from the doggy jar and lots of pats from the workers. I’m very popular here !

Hum said there was a good choice for cooked breakfasts but a lack of fresh fruit ( shame as I like a piece of apple). Lots of toast, yogurt, cereal, but I’m not allowed those.

After breakfast,  we walked around the streets of Lavenham which has lots of very old buildings, lots of gift shops, tea shops, places to eat as well as a large church and a National Trust Guildhall ( Hum carried me around as dogs are not usually allowed in there apart from in the gift or coffee shop). She’s good at talking her way in when I look my cutest.
