Dogs are Welcome

We are a dog friendly establishment as long as you have a friendly dog. Regretfully, due to the extra cost of cleaning we now charge for dogs to stay. It is £10 per visit (not per night) for each dog.

So that your dog does not interrupt the tranquility of other guests we have a few ground rules which MUST be adhered to;

Ground rules

Dogs must be tolerant of other dogs;
many other dogs stay at Woodlands Country House.

Dogs should not be left unattended in the bedrooms
unless you are sure they will not cause any damage and/or whine or bark.

Please do not allow dogs to sleep on the beds or chairs.
Muddy dogs may not come into the House – there is a hose and a supply of dog-towels available.

Dogs are permitted in the kitchen-dining room at breakfast, but only one at a time and on a lead (especially Labradors!!) There may be some 'dog sausages' available. 

Owners should be aware that there is a road at the front of the house.

There is a large lawn at the rear of the house.
Dogs are not permitted to go into the field beyond.

Dog mess
There is a bagless ‘Poop A-scoop’ and a bin provided beside the decking steps. DO NOT use bags unless they are biodegradable.
