Dog Friendly Facilities
Hello, I'm Sue,
My husband, Steve and I are true dog lovers and it's our pleasure to welcome you and your dogs to The Forge.
There is no limit to how many dogs may stay, as long as the accommodation is suitable in size for them, you can bring them all for free.
The large, fully enclosed garden is perfect for your dogs to safely play and explore. It's fenced to a height of just over a metre with a mixture of post and rail, small square stock fencing and native hedging to compliment the surroundings. Additional wire mesh has been incorporated at lower levels for our tiny visitors.
A large tree provides some welcome shade in the summer.
With fields and woodland right on your doorstep, dog friendly beaches, country parks and nature reserves just a few minutes drive away, there's wonderful places for you and your dogs to visit every day.
We love dogs and have two of our own, Dave and Daisy who will bring their own warm welcome.
Rest assured, if your dog is nervous or reactive we will do our best to ensure that there are no chance encounters.
We'll leave your keys in a key safe for you on arrival so you can quickly settle in, put the kettle on and the dogs can stretch their legs after your journey. We'll be close at hand if you need us at any time.
We supply micro fibre dog towels, throws for the sofas, non slip mats, cool mats, water bowls and holiday id tags. And a treat or two of course.
If your dog is a little nervous, not so sociable or unreliable off lead, then our fully enclosed exercise field is a wonderful space for your dogs to enjoy some off lead fun and is available for your sole use at any time (with a little prior notice on the day).
It has its own private access and a drinking water station to keep them hydrated.
