Pet Policy

Our cottages are pet friendly. Pets are allowed inside but must be fully house trained and the pet rules of our pet policy have to be accepted and followed.

For dogs

Any size dog is welcome as long as the dog is fully house trained and up to date with all vaccinations and flea treatments. Also, we allow more than one dog. Please contact us with any questions.

The cottages are fenced (1.5 metre high fence) and we have an off leash area (1 acre unfenced) for your dog(s) to run and play.

We also have a fenced off leash area for the smaller dogs in a separate part of our garden.

We charge $10 per pet per night. Pet minding services are available on request and are as of $30 per pet sit.

Please advise on your booking if you are bringing a pet so we can email you some more information regarding your stay.
