We are delighted you are bringing your dog with you and hope they enjoy their holiday as much as you do.
Whilst we want you all to enjoy your stay it is important that you adhere to the rules about pets.
1. Pets must never be left in the property unattended.
2. Pets must not be allowed on the furnishings and never in the bedrooms.
3. Towels left in the property are for guest use and must not under any circumstances be used on pets.
4. There must be no evidence of the pet on departure, this means that all dog hair must be hovered and any excrement must be picked up and disposed of sensibly.
5. Any damage caused by the pet must be reported immediately to us in order that we can rectify before the next guests arrival, any expenses in fixing/rectifying the problem will be passed on to you.
Failure to follow these rules can result in a charge being levied to cover the extra cleaning costs and the unpleasant job of picking up after your dog etc.
By following these rules you will help ensure that we continue to allow dogs into our homes as there is an ever decreasing number of holiday cottages accepting pets and it also ensures guests arriving after your stay, who may not have a pet with them, are not inconvenienced at all.
To help your dog settle into their new holiday home you may want to bring a few of their favourite toys, bowl, bed and any comforters they may use at home.
