Important info

Important points to make your stay a pleasant one: for you, for us and our neighbours!

It is important that the terms and conditions are respected and carried out – we offer a special service (pet-friendly accommodation) that can be hard to find and often expensive. But with that comes a responsibility for our clients to do the right thing.

The material below is found in a printed form as part of a welcome pack – usually left for you on the dining room table. It is important that you become familiar with the contents – the items are all common-sense points to ensure that we can keep offering our lovely cottage to pet owners on holiday …

A copy of TERMS AND CONDITIONS can be found in  the information folder called Adogma’s Cottage.

A few important details:

  • Please be aware that the Mountain is a risk area for paralysis ticks – it’s best to ensure that at least a few days before you make the journey, you have applied Frontline or Advantix to your pets. During and after your stay, please check your pets regularly to make sure they haven’t picked up any ticks, especially on their back, around ears, nose and mouth. 
  • We have limited water as we are on tank water.  Water is to be used for house hold uses, not for washing cars. The washing machine to be used for personal use. No hard objects such as shoes, hats, dog leads and collars, or dog bedding etc in washing machine.  If you do require fresh towels and linen, please ring Barbara (Dogma) 0405329002  or barbara@dog-and-cat-friendly.com .
