Dogs are welcome in all 3 of our cottages ( up to 4 dogs in Rowan and Mountain Ash, a maximum of 2 in Snowdrop).
All cottages have hard flooring downstairs and direct access to an enclosed garden which the dogs are welcome to use. Your dogs may use the lawn as a toilet but please bag solid waste and put in the large outside waste bin. Note that, apart from assistance dogs, dogs are not allowed upstairs in the cottages – a dog gate is provided at the foot of the stairs to assist with this.
Also dogs may not be left alone in the cottages unless crated and we have been informed. If you need to go somewhere and are unable to take your dog(s) with you, we offer a dog-minding service. This can range from an occasional visit to a full sitting service or even day boarding in our house with our own dogs. Please discuss your requirements with us and we will endeavour to meet them (a charge will be made for this service).
If you find you have forgotten to bring something for your dog, then please ask if we have something that will help. We have spare leads and dog bowls.
Walking dogs on Exmoor
There are numerous footpaths and bridleways all over Exmoor. While there are plenty of places where dogs can be off lead, be aware that there may be livestock in the fields and even on the moor at certain times of the year as well as deer and Exmoor ponies so, if in doubt, keep your dog on the lead. Pheasants are also widespread in the autumn and winter.
Ticks are also around so do check your dogs after walking, particularly if they have been exploring the undergrowth. If you do find a tick on the dog, we do have tick sticks to help with their removal.
Many pubs and cafes are dog friendly so your canine companions should be well catered for.
