Can I bring a small, very well behaved dog?
We do have a couple of rooms that we can accommodate a small dog, free of charge. Sorry we don’t allow a dog in our family or superior rooms as we keep them allergen-free. We would need to know at the time of your booking, so that we can insure we have one of these rooms available. Although we don’t have extensive grounds to walk here, there is a good sized park right across the road where you can exercise him/her regularly. Our policy is simple … the dog stays with you at all times (except when you are having breakfast). When you leave the building the dog must be with you – it cannot be left in the room alone.

NO – We’re sorry but in a dog-friendly environment we do not think it suitable to allow cats, however well behaved.
