WHAT FOLKS ARE SAYING ABOUT US
Witney, United Kingdom
As dog friendly a B&B that we've ever found. Wonderful welcome, nothing too much trouble. Dog treated like a guest too! Unfortunately could only stay for one night, would have liked longer. Good pub for evening meals just down the road.
Newark-on-Trent, United Kingdom
Had a lovely weekend. Room 2 and breakfast superb. Very dog friendly. Nothing too much trouble for Mandy. In superb location for northern lakes. Will definitely be returning. Joy Robert & Dylis.(she loved her sausage treat)
Stockport, United Kingdom
The only nights stay away that was friendly for dogs. The owner was a star and put up with us covered in mud and dog jumping about everywhere and let us bring dog cage in. Bar area was peaceful and craft ales and wine hit the spot. We got in from sportsman and plates and cutlery were laid out for us at bar. Room was fantastic. Whole stay was perfect and worth every penny.
Kilmarnock, United Kingdom
Comfy bed, pretty rooms, practical details like having a wee sofa in there made our visit perfect. Great shower, yummy breakfast options from porridge to a full cooked or even the kipper special. Always nice to have alternatives to the usual rashers/sausages! Friendly welcome, informative host, lots of lovely places to eat/drink nearby and an ideal location from where to begin a tour of the Lake District.
Seaham, United Kingdom
This is what you really hope a B and B will be like, a wonderful warm welcome and a clean, well equipped room. It's location is also 1st class, just off the A66 but far enough away to give you a sense of a real rural location with some fine views of the fells. Breakfast was excellent, with plenty choice for all tastes. Finally I've never come across such a dog friendly establishment.
Barnstaple, United Kingdom
We used this B&B on the way up and down from Scotland. What a great find, it is dog friendly, the owner genuinely loves dogs it's not just tolerant, the room was comfortable and quiet, every detail has been thought of. We were treated as friends, coffee on arrival, treat for our dog and next morning a great breakfast. We will certainly visit again.
