Our four legged friends
We are the owners of 2 friendly rescue dogs; an ageing Cairn terrier called Eric and a griffon cross called Gary. We also have several cats that live in the barns.
Dogs are welcome to stay with you (upon request) for private bookings. Unfortunately at this time we are unable to accommodate extra dogs during our group holidays and retreats.
NB: Our land is not completely fenced so your dog will need supervising at all times.
