  • We love dogs and aim to make Saltbox Escapes as dog-friendly as possible. However as a condition of booking please follow these simple rules:

  • You may bring up to two dogs with you if you let us know at time of booking.

  • Keep your dogs off the beds and use the dog blankets supplied to protect furniture from dirt and damage.

  • Please clear up after your dogs and put used poo bags into the grey bins by the back door of the main house.

  • Dogs can be showered using the hose in the courtyard; please use the doggy towels provided. Do not wash them in the Coach House bathroom or shower rooms or use guest towels to dry them.

  • Our neighbours' sheep graze in adjacent fields, and although the garden is fenced it cannot be guaranteed as secure for dogs. So please do not leave your dog unattended in the accommodation or the garden and keep it under control at all times.

  • We have two friendly dogs of our own who are used to sharing the space with other dogs. But if this is likely to be a problem for your dog, we politely suggest that you would be better to book elsewhere.

  • If damage is caused by your dogs, we may bill you for the cost of additional cleaning, repairs, or replacement.


  • You are responsible for leaving the accommodation in good order and in a clean condition. The convention for holiday accommodation is that guests are expected to leave the property in a similar state to which they find it.

  • We reserve the right to make an additional charge to cover cleaning costs if you leave the property in an unacceptable condition

  • At the end of your stay, please strip the top sheets, duvet cover and pillowcases from any beds used and place them in the laundry bag provided, along with used towels, tea towels and dishcloths.

  • Please let us know if anything has been broken; we expect normal wear and tear and will not usually charge for replacement. Guests will be charged for any items that are removed or lost from the accommodation.

  • We provide recycling bins for all recyclable waste and ask that you please use these as much as possible. The information folder advises you of what is recyclable locally.

  • There is no smoking or vaping inside the Coach House. If you smoke outside please dispose of cigarette butts responsibly.

  • Please do not play loud music outside unless by prior arrangement, and keep outside noise to a minimum after 11pm. If you do not comply with this - and after one warning - we will have to ask you to leave. No refunds will be given.


  • We provide a generous basket of dried, split logs and kindling for normal use of the wood burning stove in the Coach House and the firepits. We cannot usually supply charcoal.

  • Additional firewood is usually available - please inquire.

  • Campfires should only be lit in one of the firepits to protect the grass; we ask you to use the wood we supply as it is properly dried and less polluting. The firepits are also good for barbecuing.
