Dog friendly holiday cottages, Beverley, East Yorkshire
We recognise that for some guests holidaying without their pet is unthinkable so we decided that all of our accommodation at Broadgate Farm will be dog friendly holiday cottages. We like to keep our cottages in tip top condition so we ask that you only bring fully house trained and well behaved pets with you, follow our "house rules" and that you pay a small additional fee to cover the costs of extra cleaning at the end of your stay. Sorry but we can't accept dogs under 1yr old. It is very rare that we have a problem but in the unlikely event of any damage I am sure that you understand that this must be paid for.
You are welcome to bring up to 2 small/medium sized well behaved dogs to stay (up to say Labrador sized - give me a call if you need to check). We make a charge of £30 per dog in most of the cottages but this does increase to £40 for the High Barn and Cart House due to the size of the properties. If you are booking multiple cottages you will have to pay the fee for each cottage that the dogs will visit. For online booking there is a maximum of 2 dogs per booking even if you book multiple cottages, if you have 3 dogs get in touch.
If you do not holiday with a pet all the cottages have an extra clean after doggy pets, you should see no signs of previous pet guests.
Tweed - our labrador has a few words of advice for doggy guests
- We live on a farm with animals roaming so best to stay on your lead and don't whatever you do chase the chickens - it can be tempting but Mum and Dad don't like it! Come to think of it the chickens don't either!
- We are not allowed in the bedrooms or bathrooms, they have these stairgate things that can be put on the stairs to stop us scampering up. They are easy to use, already fixed in place and just hook across to form a barrier.
- Please bring your own bed because the sofa's are for humans only - cheek of it! Still the floors are nice because they are heated so in winter is it lovely to lie on the floor.
- I'm sure your owner is trained to pick up after you, it is important because we have children playing in the gardens and walking around the farm.
- If you need to stay in the cottage on your own you will need to bring one of those dog crates with you - or if like me you prefer to live outdoors there is a spare kennel for you to use. There are some dog walking/care services in Beverley - please see their website Happy Hounds 07711 861937 http://www.happyhounds-beverley.co.uk/ email@example.com You do have to book well ahead for these services.
There are plenty of options for walking your dogs with public footpaths and we are very close to the lovely Beverley Westwood which is perfect for walking the dog. A really nice dog walking field has opened at the other end of Walkington village, it's 2 acres have a grassed area and a woodland section. You book it for exclusive use and as it is fully enclosed you can have a good run around. You can find more details on their website
We are very close to Bishop Burton College for those attending the Canine Behaviour Degree.
This website has information about dog friendly pubs in the area, the Dog and Duck in the village have a dog friendly room but do check with them as it is sometimes used as a private dining area. The Woolpack on the way to Beverley is also dog friendly and the Black Horse in Little Weighton.
More possible dog walkers/sitters - please note we haven't used them so cannot recommend
