We're Dog Friendly at The School House B&B

We are happy to welcome one well-behaved dog in our ground floor room, Redlake. Redlake is a large room with plenty of space for you and your dog. It is over 5m x 5m. Please let us know when you book the room whether you’re bringing your dog, and we’ll look forward to meeting them.

The Redlake room has its own front door access to the garden and our separate allotment garden, and we can recommend short, long and off-lead walks from the door. We’d be grateful if you could wipe down muddy paws before going into the bedroom and there is an outside tap available should you need to wash down your muddy dog after a walk. A dog towel is provided.

Please clear up after your dog if they make a mess in the garden. Any bagged dog waste should be put in the public waste bin on the main road, just by the entrance to the village hall car park, or in the BLACK rubbish bin in the rear courtyard of The School House (access is via a couple of gates around the back). We are happy to provide dog waste bags on request.

We regret that we are not able to allow dogs (except assistance dogs) in the breakfast room if we have other guests, however if there is nobody else staying then we can waive this.

We ask dog owners to kindly observe the following:

  • Dogs should never be left alone in the bedroom when you go out – we can recommend dog-friendly places to eat in the evenings so there should be no need to leave dogs unattended except at breakfast

  • Please keep your dog under control at all times and be mindful that not everyone likes dogs, so don’t let your dog approach other guests unless they encourage it

  • We regret that we cannot guarantee that the garden is fully secure and please take particular care when crossing the village hall car park to get to the allotment garden

  • No dogs are allowed on any furniture in the bedroom

  • Should your dog have an unfortunate accident in the bedroom, please let us know so that we can dispose of any mess appropriately; any damage or excessive cleaning may incur an additional charge, at our discretion

  • Your dog must be up-to-date with flea and worming treatments

  • As we are a rural B&B, please keep your dog on a lead if you are crossing a field with livestock and be particularly careful at lambing time – if possible please avoid walking through a field of ewes with their lambs, even if on a public footpath.

Dog Friendly Pubs in the Area

The Baron at Bucknell, The White Horse in Clun, The Lion at Leintwardine and The Riverside at Aymestry all allow dogs, although some may only allow them in a separate bar or non-eating area (please check when you book).

We look forward to meeting you and your dog and if there is anything we can do to make your stay more comfortable then please let us know.
