Dogs love The Old Swan Inn. Lounging by the log burner in the winter, running free and exploring hidden paths in the enclosed organic summer meadow, ball games in on the large lawn, exploring the National Park and sandy beaches; chasing and splashing in the sea. Happy dogs. It's doggy paradise here, and of course, it's their holiday too!
The front and back garden and parking area is gated off, then there is a lawn, separate orchard meadow, and organic meadow each enclosed by stock fencing (about an acre of enclosed grounds for your pooch to run wild in). All but the tiniest dogs should be secure unless yours are prone to jumping fences! If you’re not sure, just call us for a chat.
We provide treats for your best friend, water & food bowls, dog towel, hose for rinsing down after the days adventures, so just bring their bed so they'll feel completely at home. The cottage will comfortably accommodate one large, two medium (retriever size) or 3 small dogs.
Of course small caged pets are welcome too. Let us know who'll be coming with you on your booking form or chat with us first if you're not sure.
We ask that dogs aren't left alone in the cottage without chatting with us first and that they don't sit on the furniture or go upstairs. We provide a stair gate to discourage them exploring the bedrooms. If your dog really can't bare not sitting on the sofa with you, please bring plenty of clean throws, and if you think you'll need to leave him on his own in the cottage for a short time, please chat with us before booking, as their own crate, dog walking service or dog creche may be the solution.
Dog Day Care is bookable with the following Licenced and fully insured providers. You must book ahead and bring your dogs Vaccination certificates.
Dog Walking, if you want to have an hour or two to yourselves and visit somewhere that doesn't take your dog you can arrange for your best friend to enjoy some National Park adventures with our trusted local insured dog walker.
