Doggie house rules
Dog friendly holidays without compromising on quality

As dog owners ourselves, we here at Wigglesworth House and Cottages appreciate you wanting to bring your four legged friend on holiday with you. We offer dog friendly holidays because we don’t believe you should compromise on quality, just because you don’t want to leave your dog behind. We want you to enjoy your 5 Star Gold holiday cottage with your pooch, at the same time, we also want to ensure guests without dogs are able do the same. Therefore, maintaining our high standards by following our doggie house rules is key to our business and guest happiness.


Dogs must be kept under control at ALL times. Therefore, please keep your dog on a lead on arrival, until you have all found your bearings.

Maintaining our 5 Star Gold Award means that we cannot always repair items damaged. As a result, replacement costs will need to by borne by the guests.


Dogs must NEVER be left alone in the cottage. There are plenty of dog friendly pubs and restaurants in the area.

Dogs barking excessively cannot be tolerated as they will disturb our other guests and therefore we will ask you to book your dog into one of the local Kennels.


Dogs are NOT allowed on the sofas, chairs or in the bedrooms. Any damaged bedding must be paid for.

Muddy dogs can be cleaned using the hose and doggy towels provided. Never use Guest Towels. A basic clean up of dog hairs prior to your departure would be greatly appreciated.


We must always know in advance of your intention to bring a dog. Check out for guests with dogs is 9:30am in order to allow us extra time for additional cleaning *.

* An extra charge of £50.00 will be required for any additional cleaning needed.

Please respect the Countryside Code

We are in a rural location with plenty of livestock around us, you must observe the COUNTRYSIDE CODE at all times. Please take your dogs (on a lead) into the field behind the cottage to do its business and clean up afterwards. This prevents damage to the lawns. We regret we cannot accept Puppies under 12 months, they will always try and chew.
