Paw & Order

Bringing your furry friend

Here at Tredarrup Farm, dogs are paws-itively welcomed, not just tolerated.

Tucked away at the end of a peaceful farm track, the cottages provide the ideal spot for a dog-friendly farm holiday, surrounded by nature and with acres of space for a tail-waggingly good time.

All we ask is that dogs are over 12 months of age and either spayed or neutered. And, due to the presence of children, livestock and other dogs, if you’re dog is reactive or considered a dangerous breed then this isn’t the place for them.

There’s no long list of rules to comply with, just some common-sense guidelines to ensure a peaceful and enjoyable stay for everyone on the farm.

Let’s make it a howl of a holiday for both you and your four-legged companions!

Doggy guidelines

Please make sure your dog has been wormed and had their flea and tick treatments before you arrive so you don’t bring any stowaways with you.

Please be considerate of others whilst you’re here, as you would whenever you take your dog out and about. Not everyone likes dogs, and some may even be scared of them, so please don’t allow them to run at other guests barking, or jump up at them.

Keep an eye on them so they don’t pay a visit to other people’s cottages (particularly during warm weather when front doors may be left open) or leave any calling cards outside. You know your dog so, if in doubt, just pop them on a lead at certain times if need be.

Dogs are allowed in all areas of the cottage and throws are provided for the sofa if they like to snuggle up with you. Whilst we’d rather they didn’t sleep on the bed, we know some dogs will sneak up in the middle of the night. If this sounds like your dog, please take the bedspreads and blankets off the bed and use the doggy throws instead.

Cornwall is super dog-friendly, so you’ll be able to take them out and about with you quite happily. We realise though that, on occasion, you might like to visit a restaurant that isn’t dog-friendly. So, provided they’re accustomed to being crated, they can be left for a short period in your cottage in their crate (which you’ll need to bring with you). Please just let us know you’re leaving them so we can keep an ear out. If you’d like to leave them for longer than a couple of hours then our local kennels provide doggy day-care. This will need to be booked well in advance of your holiday. Dogs mustn’t be left unattended if they’re not crated.

For mucky pups, there’s a hose in the parking area and a Mud Daddy hand-held shower (for those that prefer warm water) in the utility room. We provide dog towels. Don’t use the cottage’s showers and baths please, as they get damaged by sharp claws and clogged by dog hair.

Try to take them into the field or along the farm track when they need the loo, rather than using the garden areas where children often play. We realise this isn’t always possible though – when they’ve gotta go, they’ve gotta go!

You’ll need to pick up after them, even in the field – we’ll leave you a roll of eco-friendly poo bags and there’s a dog-waste bin in the parking area.

You can walk all the way around the field and through the open meadow area, which is great for ball-throwing. Your dog (and you) can run free and have a whale of a time. But, if they’re not used to livestock and you find they bark or chase the animals, please keep them on a lead in those areas.
