Dogs are allowed in all our accommodation types except Yurts. All visiting dogs MUST be kept on a lead at all times. We make a small charge for dogs who stay on our campsite.

Our site is based on a working farm, with lots of livestock in fields and barns. We have a number of bins provided around the site for dog waste, and fabulous farm walks around perimeter of the farm and into the Yorkshire Wolds - in fact, dog owners don’t need to leave the site if they don’t want to, as our site is so welcoming for our four legged friends (and we have working dogs ourselves).

Our staff are also able to advise as to dog friendly pubs, dog friendly beaches, attractions etc.

We do ask visiting dogs to be on a lead at all times given we have cows, sheep and pigs in residence throughout the year.

Please note if you bring your dog, you cannot leave him or her unattended at any time.
