Bringing Pets

Dear Dog Owner.... We are very glad you are considering visiting us with your pet.

This page contains the costs and the ground rules of bring a pet to one of our cottages. please do talk to us about the suitability of a specific cottage for your pet - we are glad to help you.

Please note that responsible owners need not read on as it is all just plain common sense.

The Costs

We are very happy to accept dogs in our dog friendly cottages (some cottages also state if they accept Cats).

However, there is a small price to pay of £20 per pet per for up to 7 nights.

Our owners use the extra costs involved in housekeeping to ensure that other guests who may be allergic to dogs are not affected.

We also go to special lengths to ensure that you and your dog really enjoy yourselves at our cottages.


First of all, please understand that we are very happy to welcome guests with dogs but a lot is up to you as a dog owner to help us to make sure that we can continue offering a cottage as Dog Welcome by following some basic rules.


... it is not worth reading these rules if you are a responsible owner like the vast majority of our guests as they are just common sense.


On each individual cottage page, under the cottage name, you will see a dog icon with information when clicked, this lets you know how many doggies are accepted and if there is something special about the cottage that your dog will especially enjoy.


  • No doggies on sofa's or chairs or beds.
  • No doggies in bedrooms
  • No doggies left alone - ever.

Why not bring a Dog Travel Cage

It is always a great relief to cottage owners when guests bring those handy travel cages with them, their pets seem to settle down much better and nobody has to worry about a sneaky sleepover on the sofa.


Here is a very useful article by Jesse Miller which includes many practical tips and advice on how to choose the most suitable dog crate for your pet:


Here are links for buying travel cages - many of our guests who regularly take their dogs on holiday with them have one… as I do.
