BRINGING YOUR DOG ALONG WITH YOU
We have two collie dogs ourselves, and rarely go anywhere without them!
We also stay in hotels with them, and know how important it is to feel happy and comfortable taking them with us. However, it is a relatively small place, and we’ve allocated two of our four rooms to welcome dogs, so that those guests who are not so keen, know there are two rooms where dogs have not been. Also, we don’t want to put off guests without dogs who will be upset by barking or whining. Therefore, we ask guests to arrange with us if they would like to bring a dog, so we can make sure everyone will be happy! There are also a handful of locals who walk their dogs on and around the land so we need to make sure they will be sociable.
We charge £12.50 per dog per night.
WHAT’S ON OFFER
We will supply bowls and a tray in your room, and a special hook for the leads – and probably a biscuit or two – if our two haven’t eaten them all! We ask you not to leave dogs unattended in your room, or allow them on any of the furniture. We have 12 acres of unfenced land that borders farmland, common land and the village, including a large, unfenced pond, so if your dog is adventurous off the lead, we ask you to keep them on a lead near the pond, in the Forest Garden, and to just be aware that the central Sanctuary field is intended for quiet contemplation.
THE PERFECT PLACE
THE PERFECT PLACE
The great thing about dog friendly Cornwall is that it is more unusual to find pubs that don’t accept dogs than do! Our own Fisherman’s Arms and our Boatshed cafe, welcome them with open arms, and we can point you in the right direction for local dog friendly beaches, cafes and pubs. Our two love running on the sands that are exposed at low tide at Golant. There are also lots of wonderful walks in the area, and we are very happy to share our favourites with you. We also have a lovely outdoor shower with hot and cold water, and a double sink unit, to wash off sand and mud, and plenty of towels for afterwards. We even have some lovely doggy soap, made by the same company that supplies our guest soaps!
