Each garden is fenced with a lawn area, and a mess bin is provided for you to clear up into. We respectfully ask that all dogs are kept off the furniture and beds during their stay, and that they are never left unattended in the properties at any time. A list of dog-friendly beaches, pubs, vets etc. is available. Also suggestions for walks and days out with your best friend(s). Doggie day care businesses, dog sitters and kennels are available locally for the days/evenings when you might want to explore alone.
