House Rules for Dogs (and their humans)
We don’t like having lots of rules and regulations because we realise that dogs are very much part of people’s families, however The Woodland Collection Cottages are very much part of our family’s heritage so please look after them for us. Also some of our guests will be visiting without dogs.
We thought it only fair that as a prospective visitor, our House Rules for Dogs should be plainly stated so you can decide if the Woodland Collection Cottages are right for you & your pet/s.
Please can we ask you to:
Please clean up after your dog/s – both inside and out. Please bag and bin all deposits as we often have families with children staying here. In case you run out, poo-bags are provided in the Doggie-Box. We have lovely walks right on the doorstep in the fields, woods and wider countryside and beaches, but alongside that comes rain and mud and sand on occasion. If your dog/s are wet and muddy/sandy please use the outside warm dog shower and keep your dog’s downstairs until they are clean and dry.
If you do like your dog/s to curl up with you on the sofas, that’s fine as they are made of leather and easy to wipe clean before you leave. There is a vacuum cleaner in the utility room to hoover up any loose hair.
Our doggie-box has some toys in it for your dog/s to play with, some treats for them and spare pooh bags.
Dogs are only allowed upstairs if this has been previously discussed with us. We do try to be flexible and recognise some dogs like to sleep near their owners. We have lovely white bedding so please don’t let your dog/s on the beds unless you have had a conversation with us about bringing your own bedding and we can inform our housekeeper.
The cottages overlook our fields which you are welcome to use. Please bear in mind the field’s boundaries are hedges not fencing so, unlike the garden, they are not secure.
We do have a secure two acre grass paddock though on the left hand side that is fenced with stock proof fencing and you are welcome to play with your dogs here as well.
Dogs should not be left unattended to free range in the house. There is a doggie day-care service close by at Hayle where arrangements can be made for the day/morning/ afternoon and this can be arranged in advance of your stay using this link if required. http://www.doggydaycarecornwall.co.uk/ They have a great reputation and fantastic facilities; in fact, we have used them ourselves from time to time.
Dogs may be left for a short period in a crate if they are used to it. We have a large and medium sized spare crate if you wish to borrow one. Please liaise with us prior to your stay.
End of doggy house rules!! We are confident that our guests are responsible dog owners and considerate human beings and will look after our cottages for us. This has certainly been our experience to date. And finally….if you get home and find you have some lovely photos of your dog/s enjoying their holiday here, we would love to see them and put them on our Facebook page.
