Responsible pet owners are welcome to bring dogs to our 4 specific dog friendly cottages. When booking it is essential that you check whether your pet is permitted at your chosen property; and please confirm the the number of pets you are bringing (maximum of 2 in each dog friendly cottage).

We charge £25 per dog to stay at our 'Dog Friendly' properties. However, if there is extra cleaning above and beyond what we consider to be the normal clean (for example if we find they have been in the bedrooms/upstairs), we have the right to charge a reasonable amount to cover our costs.

  • Dogs MUST NOT be left alone in the property or elsewhere at any time;
