Dog Rules at Penny Black Cottage

House Rules for Dogs (and their owners)

We love to welcome dogs to Penny Black Cottage as we understand that they are part of your family, but as Penny is very much part of our family we do ask that you take time to read through our rules prior to booking, to decide if Penny Black Cottage is the right accommodation for you and your dog. 

We are surrounded by countryside and the neighbouring fields do have sheep grazing at certain times of the year. Being rural, we have lots of wildlife including rare birds, rabbits, hares, weasels, foxes and owls.  We ask that you keep your dogs on leads or under close control within the grounds at all times and familiarise yourself with the countryside code

We also welcome guests who don't have dogs and may not like dogs so we ask that you keep this is mind so that everyone can enjoy the cottage.

We ask that:

. Guests do not leave their dogs unattended in the property at any time.

. Guests ensure that their dogs preferably stay downstairs and off the furniture.

. Guests keep their dogs under close control within the shared pathway across the terrace.

. Guests clear up after their dogs, both inside and out (please double bag dog waste and use the small green bin next to the general waste bins in the garden).

. Guests respect our neighbours by keeping their dogs under close control and ensuring they do not bark excessively.

. Guests ensure their dogs are house trained and free from worms, ticks and fleas.

. We don't normally accept dogs under 1 year unless very closely supervised.  If in doubt please ask.

. Guests ensure that you book in all dogs that you are intending to bring with you.

. Guests bring their own dog bed, blankets, towels, bowls etc. with them. Please do not use the cottage towels for your dog.


Guests must provide the following information at the time of booking:

  1. Name of dogs.
  2. Number of dogs.
  3. Age of dogs.
  4. Vaccination, flea, worm and tick treatment up to date Yes/No?
