- Our pet rules are: Little dogs are allowed inside as long as they have their own bed, , that they will sleep in, but we prefer the big dogs to be kept outside. All dogs must be kept on a lead at all times and the usual dog etiquette must be kept eg. Cleaning up after them etc. We have pet minders available on request (for a fee).
We always like people to make inquiries so that we know what type of dog they have.
We do let the dogs all year round but we are aware that maybe some dogs may not like to be in such a crowded camp ground and may be a bit disturbed about it. Therefore please check with us first.
