Pets Invited

Your pet’s holiday is important to us too!

As animal lovers ourselves, we know that it is great to be able to take your pet with you on holiday and know that they are having a good time too! The Forest of Dean is the perfect location for dogs in particular as there are miles upon miles of footpaths to explore and lots of good foresty smells to investigate.

Perfect Location

No busy roads
Small common on the doorstep for exercising your pet
Large garden where you can let your dog have a run around.
Many walks from the door of the cottage (details of these in the cottage)

Cost of your Pet’s holiday

We welcome a variety of pets by prior arrangement at a charge of £10 per pet per stay in both Wren Cottage (which has been awarded “Pets Welcome” by Quality in Tourism) and Little Owl our studio apartment. Do let us know the type of pet and number when you make your booking.

We can accommodate a maximum of 2 dogs in each cottage.
