We don’t have many rules at Exmoor House but we would be very grateful if you could read the following carefully to ensure you and our other guests have a friendly and relaxing stay.
We welcome responsible dog owners and well behaved, house trained dogs. We are unable to accept puppies or dogs that are likely to be aggressive to either other dogs or people.
Your dog must be flea and parasite free. If we have to fumigate to get rid of an infestation we will make a charge to your credit card for however much it costs to return our property to its operational state.
Even the best-behaved dogs may become anxious if left alone in an unfamiliar place and may bark or scratch, even if this is out of character. Therefore, we request that dogs are not left alone in the bedroom when you are not in the room. Please either put them in their crate, if applicable, or your car (except in hot weather, of course). At breakfast time you are very welcome to bring him/her in to the dining room, as long as our other guests are comfortable with the arrangement.
Stain remover and kitchen towel are provided, just in case there are any ‘accidents’, but please also let us know so that we can apply extra cleaning to the area. Having raised a puppy we are quite used to it!
For the comfort of future occupants of the room, please do not let your dog on the bed or furniture.
Don’t forget that other guests may not be confident around dogs so please keep your dog on a lead when outside your room and don’t let him/her greet the guests without their prior permission.
We would appreciate it if you could give muddy paws a wipe before entering the room. We have facilities for bathing your dog, if required, so please ask if you need shampoo, towels etc. We also have an emergency supply of most other dog-related paraphernalia if you forget to bring something with you.
Bagged dog waste can be placed in the black bins, at the side of the house. Please clear up any dog mess straightaway – we have free biodegradable poo bags if needed.
There are lots of places to take your dog for a walk in the area but not many pavements, so please be careful! We can direct you to a few nearby places where your dog can be let of the lead.
Smoking/Vaping is only allowed in the guests’ garden and cigarettes and matches must be disposed of in the bin provided.
