If you are bringing a dog it needs to be small, clean and well behaved and we have some formal rules just in case. An additional charge of £25 for up to a week is made for a dog, this is added to your booking as an extra charge. We must be informed if you are bringing a dog with you. If you arrive with a dog extra to your booking information, we may refuse entry and will not be liable to refund you.
The surrounding Country Park has miles of dog friendly walks where they can be let off the lead but please ensure you respect the countryside code as some areas have farm animals and horses.
The non-accessible cottage garden area (behind Mallock Cottage only) does not have dog proof fences and we own cats so your dog must be under your control when outside on the deck. Magnolia House 1 does have a fully enclosed courtyard but please keep a close eye and pick up any mess.
Out of consideration to our other guests, you must keep your dog under control and on a lead while entering or leaving the property.
To maintain the peaceful ambiance of the setting, for other guests and our neighbours, dogs must not be allowed to bark unreasonably.
Dogs are not to have free run of the property. We wish to maintain the highest standards for our accommodation, so dogs are not allowed in the bedrooms, on the furniture, and especially not in the beds. Please bring their bed, crate or a dog blanket for their comfort. Do not leave your dog unaccompanied.
Pick up after your dog both at the property and while walking in the surrounding country park. Dispose of it in an outside bin. We provide some poo-bags in the cottage, so please make use of them.
If you are bringing a puppy you must bring along a crate or a cage with you and toys to chew (not our furniture!)
Please make sure the cottage is reasonably clean including dog hair from soft furnishings, rugs and carpets before you leave as well as double checking outside the property for any dog mess. The requirement for any additional cleaning will mean an additional £50 fee to cover the cost of extra cleaning time
