Access to the property is down a short drive to a five bar gate which is kept closed at all times to keep both my little dog Lola in and the rabbits out.

The accommodation is located directly next to the parking area.

Dusk to dawn lighting provides light in the area.

There is no telephone in Little Willows but I am happy for guests to use my phone and give friends and family my telephone number. Mobile phone reception can prove to be difficult depending on what phone and service provider is used.

I accept well behaved dogs by prior arrangement. You will be asked to sign the following dog policy when you arrive.


Dear guests,

In the interest of the safety of all guests I am unable to accept dogs of breeds whose behavior is known to be unpredictable. I will therefore NOT take:

  • Staffordshire
  • Pitbull
  • Doberman
  • Rottweiler breeds or any cross breed including these strains. If your dog has any record of unpredictable behavior please make other arrangements for your stay.
  • For other large dogs please check before making a reservation.

I welcome well behaved and friendly dogs. In order to provide for the health and safety of all guests, I ask you to keep to the following rules.

  • Dogs should be under your ownership and responsibility for at least 6 months prior to your stay. I do not take dogs younger than 6 months old.
  • Dogs must be under control of their owner in all common areas at all times. If Little Willows is fully booked, dogs are not allowed in the sitting room without the consent of the other guests.
  • Dogs may not be left unattended in common areas or rooms, regardless of how they may be secured.
  • Regardless of whether the dog is in your room or a common area the owner is responsible for immediate clean-up and repairs of incidental damage caused by the dog. The clean-up should be thorough enough so as to generate no additional work for the Little Willows cleaners. I provide “poo bags ”, if necessary.
  • In the interest of other guests I cannot accept dogs that are prone to yapping or barking. If unanticipated disturbance does occur, you will be expected to remove your dog to your car, so that other guests are not disturbed.
  • Your dog is always the responsibility of yourself, the owner. The owner is liable for any damage or upset caused by the dog.
  • I expect that all appropriate vaccination, including flea treatment, have been regularly carried out on your dog. If veterinary standards are not met, you must mention this to us straight away.
  • Dogs are not allowed on any furniture and may not sleep in/on your bed or the common areas. If you forgot to bring appropriate bedding for the dog, please ask - I can help you.
  • Please always make sure that your dog is clean before bringing it into the house. If necessary, please ask me for a bucket, cloths, hosepipe – all is available on request. Dog towels are available on request.
  • Dogs may not be cleaned in the showers, sinks or the baths.
  • I reserve the absolute right to terminate a stay without notice if a dog and/or its owner cause damage or inconvenience to other guests, the property or me and my dog. No recompense will be given in such cases.

Thank you for your cooperation. I hope you’ll have a happy and relaxing stay with your dog at Little Willows.
