"lovely place definately NOT pet friendly"
this is absolutley lovely, however we wanted to take our dog, so i emailed and confirmed one labrador well behaved would be fine. day 3 of a week it was hot so dog left behind for 3 hours whilst we we… More
We welcome pets but we state we will not allow pets to be left alone in the cottages or allowed on the furniture. Responsible owners consider other people and property. This poor pet was left on more than occasion and it was other guests who mentioned about the barking and it was persistent. No responsible dog owner will leave a recently rescued pet, alone in a strange environment. Why take a pet on holiday if all you're going to do is shut it up all day, shameful we will not allow this kind of treatment to animals.
