We are dog friendly!
There are plenty of dog friendly walks around the cottages, and you can exercise them in our 5 acre field which is full of the scents left by rabbits and pheasants.
There are woodland and excellent country lane walks without even having to get into your car.
We have even compiled a list of pubs where dogs are welcome.
We make no extra charge for dogs (maximum 2 per cottage). What we do ask is that dogs are kept off of the furniture; supervised both inside and outside of the cottages, and never left in the cottages by themselves.
We can also provide you with details of which local beaches allow dogs - so a run along the beach may be one of the highlights of their holiday.
This is what Dogpeople said about The Old Rectory
“Hamish visited for a short break at the end of March / beginning of April 2009. He stayed in one of two conversions with fully enclosed gardens (there are two more attached to the main house with a courtyard). The weather was rather chilly – we had two days of almost continuous fog - but the cottage was warm with an effective central heating system. We also lit the pot bellied stove when we stayed up later one evening. The cottage was well equipped and very comfortable. It, and the garden, was perfect for Hamish (who loved the different countryside scents and was happy to lie in the garden in wait for any wildlife that might venture by). Our welcome from Keith and Jeannie (and one of their daughters who we met on arrival) was warm and helpful. Welcome ‘goodies’ included own free range eggs, a local beer, wine and a cake made on site by the daughter we met. Hamish had his own bowl of treats too! The Old Rectory owns two adjacent fields where guests and their dogs are welcome. These are a good example of Keith and Jeannie’s care for the environment – one has just had a pond dug and is planted with trees, the other has been planted as an orchard. We really enjoyed the area and the experience as a whole – truly Top Dog (nearest beach is about 30 minutes drive away).”
