We understand that people like to travel with their pets and, as animal lovers, we welcome your four legged K9 friends to The Whare. There are lots of outdoor spaces for you to enjoy with your dog during your visit from long farm walks and ponds to swim in, to exploring the riverbed.

Most guests who travel with their pets are responsible and respectful. Sadly, some are not, so we do have some stricts rules which must be agreed to for the safety of others on our property, our pets and our farm animals. This is a working farm; dogs must not interact with chickens or farm animals. Ideally dogs should be fully vaccinated for sheep measels and other vaccinations should be up-to-date. Be aware there are unspayed male and female dogs on the property.

Dogs are welcome inside but not on furniture or beds. They must have their own sleeping arrangements (crate or pet bed) and must not be left unattended in The Whare. Please bring everything you require with you like bowls, bedding etc

Any damage to our property will be the responsibility of the pet owner.

If you have any further questions regarding your pet's visit, please contact us when you are making your own booking.
