Teddy the Shetland puts the neigh in hotel room neighbour.
Animal lovers were thrilled about the chance to sleepover with a miniature horse in an Airbnb in the beautiful Norfolk countryside. The great news is, you no longer need to travel across the country to make that happen. Soon, you can have nearly the same experience right here in London, and it gets even better: It’s not just any pony you get to cuddle at The Goring Hotel. It’s none other than Teddy the Shetland (who, if you didn’t know, is an Instagram sensation). The self-proclaimed ‘international heartbreaker’ that ‘dabbles in modelling and womanising’ is taking residence at the posh hotel from August 16 to 31, ready to woo visitors as a special afternoon tea guest.
Teddy, who belongs to The Goring family, will be moving into a specially constructed stable at the hotel for two weeks in August. Because he is so beloved, the five-star luxury hotel near Buckingham Palace will be offering a limited-time ‘Teddy the Shetland Overnight Package’ which comes with a room upgrade, breakfast, pony cuddles, a Teddy souvenir to take home, and most importantly, a Teddy the Shetland Afternoon Tea. The four-legged womaniser will be joining guests roaming freely in The Goring Garden or on the Terrace, while snacking on delicious pony-themed cakes, scones, and mini apple tarts (plus optional champagne for the humans).
We promise your food will look more appetising than Teddy’s, and it’ll be an afternoon tea experience you won’t soon forget. Find more info and book your Teddy overnight package on The Goring’s website.
