A Treat for Dog-lovers

We are very dog-friendly here at The Red Lion: dogs stay for free in our rooms and they’re also welcome in the bar. With our four-legged friends in mind, we’ve teamed up with local dog photographer, Richard Aspinall to enable our canine guests to enjoy a dog photography package when they stay with us.

Guests can choose from two packages.

A Woodland Walk - £175

A woodland walk offers the opportunity to develop a portfolio of portraits of your dog, ideal for creating an album full of memories, modern canvas prints or stylish famed images.

The Woodland Walk package:

  • A 60 to 90-minute woodland photoshoot

  • Professional photo editing.

  • £100 credit towards your album and/or prints.

  • Add an extra hour for just £60.

The Beach Party – £200

Ideal for the active, energetic dog, The Beach Party package captures the excitement and exuberance of a day at the beach. Bring along your dog’s favourite ball or frisbee to add to the fun, and we’ll snap away, getting a range of action shots to turn into stunning wall art.

The Beach Party package:

  • A beach photoshoot at Coldingham Bay. (60 to 90 minutes.)

  • Professional photo editing.

  • £100 credit towards your album and/or prints.

  • Add an extra hour for just £60.

Selecting your images

Once the images have been edited, you will be sent a password which will enable you to view the photos via Richard’s website. You will then be able to place an order for your album and/or prints. (The watermark you see on the images on the online album will not appear on your prints.)
