Looking after our furry friends

As dog owners we know that trying to book kennels for your four legged friend whilst you go away on your holiday does add extra costs.  That is  why we have a number of dog friendly self catering cottages that allow you and your canine friend the perfect self catering holiday break.  Yorkshire is the ideal place to take your dog on holiday – big beaches, open countryside and forest walks are all close to our holiday cottages.  We ask that you bring your own dog bed and that you are respectful of other guests and please clean up after your dog.

A few basic rules for our dog friendly holiday cottages

  • On a lead at all times when outside in the grounds
  • Off the furniture and out of the bedrooms when inside
  • Never left alone
  • Clean up as you go
  • Thats it!

Have a look at the cottages that we have on offer for you and your canine friend.

Where to take your dog

If you are looking for dog walking inspiration on your visit to the Yorkshire Coast – have a look at this link on the Welcome to Yorkshire site.  Some of the local beaches, whilst always allowing dog walking, restrict where you can walk your dog during the high season.  Please have a look at the list below…

In land you  can take your dog for a walk up on the North Yorkshire Moors, closer to our cottages you can go to Dalby Forest, where your dog can run off the lead (but under control).

Why not try a short walk out to Thomason Foss and link that up with walking to Myllan Spout (the highest water fall in the North Yorkshire Moors), just out side of Goathland?



Garden Round Up

Garden Round Up

Some shots from around our garden as we work on improving it.  Whilst the lock down is great in principle, you do still need tradesmen to come and do a lot of the improvements you want to do, so we are cracking on with the garden.  In the left hand walled garden where...

In Isolation

In Isolation

As we are now in "lockdown" with no guests for the foreseeable, we thought it would be an opportunity to get tradesmen to make good our new home and make improvements as well - of course they are in lock down too and in isolation themselves!  I guess we didn't think...

Covid-19 and all that…

Covid-19 and all that…

Not the best of weeks to be taking over a business with Covid-19 landing on these shores. We are still open, with our 2 acres of grounds and easy access to the North York Moors and Dalby Forest. However, with COVID-19 we are taking all reasonable precautions to ensure...
