Valley Farm Holiday Cottages

Dogs at Valley Farm

We love dogs at Valley Farm, but sadly not everyone feels the same way.

Our cottages welcome well behaved dogs at the owner’s discretion.

Please find below our terms and conditions for holidaying with your best friend:

  • A fee of £20 per week per dog is charged, this is payable to the owner on arrival.
  • Dogs must be kept on a lead on site at all times, we sometimes have sheep in the fields and our chickens will not like your friend as much as you do!
  • All mess must be immediately cleaned up and deposited in the doggy bin situated in the bin area.
  • Dogs are strictly not allowed on furniture and beds, any evidence of pets on furniture may incur extra cleaning fees.
  • On departure we request all dog fur is cleaned from the cottage.
  • Pets must be up to date with worming, flea and tick treatment.
  • Fleas and ticks are rampant in the English countryside and can cause harmful illnesses to humans and pets.
  • Please notify us of any damage immediately and this must be paid for.
  • Please do not leave your dog unattended and please prevent your pet from producing excessive noise at a level that disturbs neighbours.
  • Crate trained dogs may be left in their crates for a few hours by arrangement.
  • Valley Farm can also offer a dog sitting service at £5 an hour by arrangement only.
  • The Owner has the right to reasonable access to the property and may inspect it should he/she have reason to be concerned about the tenants’ occupancy and refuse to accommodate any pet which in her opinion is causing, or likely to cause, nuisance or damage to the owners or the owner’s property or to other tenants or their property. There will be no rental refund in such an instance.
  • High quality complete dog food (Nutriment) and natural treats are available to purchase on site. Please see our website for further details
  • We assume no responsibility for illness or injury humans or pets incur whilst on the premises.
  • Please ensure your pet has adequate insurance.
  • All items above are the sole responsibility of the pet owner.
