“Absolutely fantastic “home from home”. We were made to feel so welcome. Loads of places to go and things to see, everything within easy reach. We will definitely return again next year as this had everything we could ever want from a holiday. The dogs enjoyed their stay too. ” – Golidie, Rosie and Mollies family
Some frequently asked questions: if you have a specific question that is not listed, please do just get in touch.
Q: How many dogs can I bring? A: As many as you like.
Q: Is there any additional charge for dogs? A: No, absolutely not.
Q: What if my dog damages something? A: Our experience to date is that any damage which has occurred has been caused by people. We do ask for a deposit, so if there is anything broken or damaged we reserve the right to use the deposit to replace or repair. However, we will return whatever remains of the deposit to you.
Q: How enclosed is your garden really? A: It is bounded by a combination of wooden and sheep wire fencing which is 5 ft high. If your dog is an escape artist and can burrow or jump, then we can’t obviously guarantee they won’t get out.
Q: Are the dogs allowed throughout the house? A: Dogs are allowed anywhere downstairs including on the leather furniture but not on the beds as it is impossible to get dog hairs out of duvets. Upstairs is carpeted and has one bedroom and a large open plan area. It generally only gets used for larger families where kids may want a separate space.
Q: Is there a kennel outside for my dogs? A: No, because dogs are welcome in the house, we don’t provide any outdoor facilities.
Q: Do I have to have a dog to stay at Dusty’s Place? A: No, everyone is welcome with or without dogs. It is set up for dogs and their owners but we have had families stay with us because the enclosed garden and house suited there family members with learning disabilities and/or dementia.
