Hundreds of cockapoos and cavapoos descended on Down Hall Hotel Spa and Estate on Sunday for a luxury outdoor dog event.

Hosted by canine events company Pop & Bark - which provides breed-specific parties and experiences - the event saw 300 pampered pooches enjoy a dedicated Pupuccino Bar and a doggy barbecue while their owners explored an outdoor shopping market.

The dogs also posed for photographs on the lawn, situated within the hotel's 110 acres of grounds.


Themed cocktails were served to human guests throughout the afternoon, alongside barbecue bites served by the hotel's executive chef Robert Peace - including spiced lamb koftas, lime aubergine steaks and pulled pork. 

Down Hall is a dog-friendly hotel, offering 10 patio bedrooms which welcome dogs.
