Pets Welcome

There are many properties on this website where pets are welcome. Pets Welcome accommodation usually applies to dogs, but some country properties have facilities for guests' horses. There may be some restriction as to the size and type of dog that can be accommodated and some hosts stipulate that dogs are not allowed inside. It is recommended that anyone travelling with a pet and seeking to book accommodation should speak with the provider of the accommodation about any conditions that may apply. Owners of dogs or any other type of pet who travel in country areas need to be aware of the possibility of snake or tick bites and take necessary and sensible precautions.  Describing accommodation as Pet Friendly does not infer that these hazards are not present.
