General Information

If you wish to bring more than one dog, or a particularly large breed, please contact us before booking to confirm what restrictions, if any, apply to the property you want to book. If you want to bring a pet other than a dog also please contact us to confirm in advance. A supplement of £20 per week is charged for each pet you bring.

We are sure you will appreciate, as responsible pet owners, that care and consideration should be taken when bringing pets on holiday. Pets can only be permitted into holiday properties on condition that they are not allowed on beds or furniture and that they are never left unattended in a property. Any fouling should be cleared from gardens or outside areas before leaving the property – children use gardens too!
