Frequently Asked Questions

  • Do you accept dogs?

We do allow dogs on the understanding that they are not allowed upstairs or on any of the furniture, and that they have been treated for fleas before they come. We should also warn you that many of the local beaches have a dog ban between Easter and October. We can however advise you of alternative beaches  for your dog. We make a charge of £35 per dog. Please let us know when booking of any little friends that may be coming.
