Dog friendly

We welcome dogs with open arms at Parkgate Farm so they can enjoy the space and freedom along with our guests. A maximum of two dogs per unit of accommodation is permitted. There are lots of dog friendly walks immediately around Parkgate woods and they can enjoy a good run along the beach too. Most local visitor attractions allow dogs too so they needn’t miss out on your day trips.

We just have a few doggy rules to keep everybody happy:

  • We do have sheep and cattle at Parkgate so please always keep your dog under control.
  • Pick up their mess so our children don’t step in it.
  • Be wary of taking your dog near the donkeys as the donkeys do enjoy chasing dogs!
  • Please clean down your dog before re-entering accommodation - we know how muddy we can all get when having fun!
  • Please don’t allow your dog on the furniture - not all our guests are as dog friendly as you and me.
