Holidays for dogs

Our dog-friendly lodges are deep-cleaned before and after your stay to ensure you have a clean and homely welcome. Dog-friendly lodges are available at a selected number of Woodland Lodges and Executive Lodges only, and you can add up to two dogs per lodge so they can enjoy your holiday as much as you will.

Breaks made for dogs

Each dog-friendly lodge includes a log burner, so your furry friend can curl up next to the fire to relax, unwind and recharge after their busy day of play. These pet-friendly lodges offer open-plan living spaces for ultimate comfort and laminate flooring for any unexpected little accidents or muddy paws.

Dog-friendly accommodation

With practical cupboard space, there is plenty of room to store pet wipes, dog treats, and other essentials. Each dog-friendly lodge also includes a bath, perfect for giving your furry friend a quick wash, rinse and dry after a forest adventure watching squirrels and jumping in muddy puddles.

Facilities for dogs

Dogs should be kept on the lead while exploring the village, however there are designated dog exercise areas where your furry friend can roam free. These areas include dog bins, making it a stress-free toilet visit and helping your pet feel as comfortable as possible. Water bowls are provided around the village near shops and restaurants so that your dog can rehydrate and quench their thirst after a day of adventuring in the woods.
