Jasmine Cottage is a family run business and we are a family of animal lovers with dogs (and cats) of our own.  We understand the need to find accommodation that suits both you and your pet(s) and we are therefore happy to welcome well behaved and house trained dogs at the cottage.  


Please let us know at the time of booking if you will be bringing your four legged friends with you.  We make a small charge per dog per week.  


We can provide the following for our doggie guests and their families:


Patio garden: This is enclosed with a fence, a dry stone wall and two gates.  The dry stone wall is not high so, although the boundaries are obvious, we cannot guarantee that your dog will adhere to them if he/she is prepared to put in a little effort to go exploring.


Dog Bowls:  Stainless steel food and water bowls are available for use by your dog(s) during your stay.  Please let us know if you would like to borrow them.


Lead:  A dog lead is available on request should you forget to bring one.


Dog Washing Facilities:  There is a hose pipe and bucket in the garage available for your dog to wash his/her muddy paws and undercarriage after a day in the fells/forest/lake.  We apologise in advance that the water is not heated and can therefore be a little chilly in the Winter.  You are welcome to heat water in the kettle and use the outside bucket to ensure your canine family member has a more pleasant bathing experience.


Dog Drying Facilities:  If you forget to bring a towel for drying your dog(s), we can provide one on request.  


Doggy Bags:  If you forget to bring doggy bags, please let us know.  We can provide you with both bags and a scoop to use during your stay.


Torch:  A torch is available for walking after dark.


Garage: You are welcome to store pet crates in the garage during your stay.


Information on the following:


  • Local Dog Walks:  there are numerous walking opportunities for you and your dog(s) straight from the door of the cottage – lakeside walks, fell walks and forest walks.


  • Pet Shops


  • Local Vet


  • Dog Friendly Pubs and Cafes



Doggie Rules


As responsible dog owners, we know that you will understand the need for some simple but strict ‘doggie rules’.


  • Home alone: Do not leave your dog alone in the cottage at any time.  Even dogs who are happy to be left alone in their own home can become distressed in unfamiliar surroundings  and, as a result, may behave out of character.  Remember that you are legally responsible for any damage to the property during your stay.  If your dogs are found alone in the property you will have broken the terms of our contract and you will be asked to leave.


  • Dog Sleeping facilities:  Your dog(s) must not be allowed into the bedrooms or to climb or sleep on any of the furniture, even if they are allowed to do so at home.  Please bring your dog(s) bed or bedding with you.


  • Dog Waste: Please pick up all dog waste from the cottage grounds and around the village, and ensure that there is no evidence of your pet on your departure.


  • Cleanliness: Please ensure that your dog is clean, and as dry as possible, before being allowed into the cottage.





Thank you
