Dogs have been part of my life since When I was a child of 7 and got a very surprise birthday present of a border terrier pup. She settled into our lives quickly, never scrapping with our farm collies, being a very vocal guard dog for the farmhouse and catching vermin in the cattle sheds. Mike and I have had several dogs in our 40 years of marriage. Weimeraners ( we were one of the first English breeders of these beautiful hunting dogs) and Border Collies, then on to Jack Russell’s (such a change) which we seemed to have stuck with for over 20 years. Now only faithful old Casper and two gorgeous cats, Myrtle and Tommy Tittlemouse.
We have two B&B rooms that are Dog Welcome rooms. Demesne and Maud are located on the ground floor and each has its own small enclosed courtyard.
Visitors staying in The Shepherds Hut and The Wood Hen Houses are welcome to have their dog sleeping in the hut.
Our Self Catering cottage – The Brew House, located in just down the road in Maulds Meaburn is an especially good choice if you are on holiday with your dog.
Cost is £5.00/night/dog.
Visitors that are travelling with their dog must be aware that we are a working farm and have our own house cats and dogs.
Here are our Doggie Do’s and Dont’s
We also have facilities for you to bring your horse. There is an enclosed paddock for grazing, plenty of room for parking a horse box and storage space for tack. Cost is £10/night/horse.
Your cat is also welcome to share Demesne and Maud bedrooms.
