Holidays With Your Pet
We understand that for some people, their dog is a part of the family and a holiday just wouldn’t be the same without them. That’s why we recommend to owners that they accept pets and why we have a variety of lovely properties where your four-legged friend is as welcome as you are. Here are some helpful hints so you know what you can expect at a pet friendly property and to help you and your pet enjoy your perfect holiday.
Pet Friendly Properties
All our pet friendly properties can be found here. The number of dogs is specified but if you have more, or want to bring your cat, please contact us and we can see if we can find you something suitable.
Our owners that accept pets at their properties do so on the understanding that the pets are house trained and fully up to date with all flea and worming treatments.
We do charge a small fee but it’s still much cheaper than kennels! There is a standard pet charge of £20 per pet per week or part thereof. This will increase to £30 on the 1st January 2018 but will remain at £20 per part week. If there is a variation in the pet charge for a particular property it will be specified in the property information.
What to bring
Please bring the following items for your pets:
- Collars and leads
- Water & food bowls
- Grooming brush/comb
Some of our owners provide items for dogs but you should always bring the above unless specified in the property description or notes. Please don’t use the humans’ items from your holiday cottage!
Gardens and courtyards
If a property is described as having an enclosed garden or courtyard it does not necessarily mean it is secure and escape-proof for your pet.
You will be spoilt for choice for walking with your dog in Kent & Sussex and many of our properties have wonderful walks straight from the door. You will have the choice of wonderful woodlands, stunning countryside, country parks, beaches and coastal walks. Some walks pass through farmland with livestock so please keep your dog on a lead in these areas. Please note that some beaches have seasonal restrictions so contact the local tourist office for more information.
Mud and sand
Please try and clean your dog as best you can before you go back into your holiday cottage.
Relaxing Together in the Cottage
Hopefully your dog will enjoy relaxing on holiday as much as you do, however you never can tell how a dog will react if left alone in unfamiliar surroundings so please do not leave your pets alone in the property.
Please ensure that your pet does not climb on the furniture, go upstairs or go into bedrooms.
Before you leave
Before you head for home, please check the garden and any outside space around the property for accidents so that the area is clean for the next guests.
If you would rather stay in a property which does not take pets, we have plenty of those too. If you have an allergy and need confirmation that there have never been any pets staying at the property, please call us and we will confirm with the owner for you.
