Q & A
WHERE CAN I GO FOR LONG WALKS AND THOSE EARLY MORNING/LATE NIGHT TOILET TRIPS?
Just nip out in the garden or go down to the park (3 mins away) for those essential early/late
night trips. 3 mins to the South West Coast path (hundreds of miles!)
WHERE CAN I GO WITH MY DOG IN AMBER HOUSE?
Accompanied dogs are allowed in our garden but we expect owners to clean up after their pets.
Dogs are not allowed in the dining room during mealtimes– except for guide dogs and dogs for the hearing impaired.
You can take your dog into the bar/conservatory area except when meals are being served.
If you wish to go into the garden at a time when meals are being served you can do so by using the side gates.
You are free to take your dog in and out of the front entrance at any time.
DO YOU TAKE DOGS IN ALL ROOMS?
Most but not all. We have some exceptionally furnished and decorated rooms – our Luxury rooms TALL SHIPS and BAY VIEW – which have items such as floor length pale coloured curtains and hand-beaded lampshades and tie-backs.
We do not book dogs into these rooms as the risk of unintentional damage would be high.
Our single room SKY is also configured in such a way as to make it impossible to stay there comfortably with a dog.
It is best to ask our advice on the most suitable room for the size and number of dogs you have and the number of people in the room/party. The maximum number of dogs we accept in one room is two. Not all rooms are suitable for all sizes and numbers of dogs.
All rooms are thoroughly cleaned and serviced – we have a Silver Award for our high standards in service and cleanliness.
WHERE DO I LEAVE MY DOG DURING BREAKFAST?
During breakfast or dinner your dog may be left in your room if you are sure it has settled.
If the weather is good you may secure it in the garden if it is unsettled in the room.
You may leave your dog in the car during mealtimes if they settle better in familiar territory.
The car-park has shade even during the hottest days.
