As dog owners and lovers ourselves, we understand how important it is for you to find somewhere to stay that welcomes your dogs we brought Rill House with ours in mind and we know yours will love it as much as they do!
We welcome unlimited dogs of all breeds to stay, we don't even ask what breed they are, why would we?
The response from our Local Authority regarding us still welcoming dogs registered under the Exempted Dogs Register is that "if the gardens are secure and for the sole use of the occupiers of the holiday accommodation, then you would not have to insist that owners muzzle and lead their dogs as it would not be considered a public place."
All this space is for our guests and their dog's exclusive use.
The large enclosed courtyard on one side has the house, the 2nd side has a wall over 6ft, the 3rd side is a wall with a solid gate a minimum of 5ft, the 4th side has a stream with a low wall and garden gate into the huge enclosed garden. The external walls of the garden are stone walls with bushes in front and 4ft, the 5 bar gate is covered in fine mesh to the ground. One side is 4ft high rabbit fencing with a hedge in front.
There are more details on this page Garden as well.
Your dogs are welcome on sofas with your throws.
If your dogs sleep on your bed please let us know as we will remove all our bedding from the beds they will be sleeping on, including duvets, and you will need to bring your own. Or for a small charge to save on packing space, you can use our duvets (you still need to bring your own bed linen).
We know that dogs can 'take a wrong turn' sometimes when they are somewhere new so for your peace of mind we loan you holiday dog tags to add to your dog's collars during your stay. Please do not leave them in the house alone, after all, they are on holiday as well, we do provide details for a local dog sitter who will come to the house to look after your dogs if you do wish to go out without them.
