Can we bring our dog with us?

Some of our cottages accept dogs - check on individual cottage pages.  You will find information there about how many and what size of dogs are accommodated.  In all cottages accepting dogs, holidaymakers are required to leave the cottage clean and free of dog hairs.  If extra cleaning is required, you will be invoiced within 7 days of departure and immediate payment will be required.  For the comfort and convenience of other guests and the owners, dogs are not allowed upstairs or on any furniture whatsoever. You must not leave your pet unattended in the property.

Swaledale and Arkengarthdale are farming areas, with sheep and cows in fields, and on pastures and moors.  Dogs must be under strict control at all times and on a lead near livestock. However, if there are cows with calves in fields, they can be extremely protective and will chase your dog. If this happens, let go of the lead and allow the dog to run away from the cows, or you may be hurt yourself. Your help and respect for the surrounding environment is greatly appreciated. It is your responsibility to keep your pet safe as, even if the property has a garden, it may be possible for a determined pet to escape! Should your dog leave unwelcome deposits in the garden, please ensure you remove them before you leave.

We do not make an extra charge for pets, but please let us know when you book if you are bringing your pets.
