We are dog-friendly cottages

We are very happy to welcome up to 2 well-behaved dogs in Helm and Herdwick Cottages and up to 3 dogs in Hawthorn and the Barn.
If you are bringing your dog(s) with you, please inform us when booking.


Gamblesby is a great location to bring your four-legged friend. There are many available walks in and around the village where dogs are able to run off-lead and use up some of that boundless energy (just remember to pack your wellies)!

Dogs need to be kept on leads along the main roads and care must be taken around livestock - especially with sheep at lambing time.

Within the cottages, please remember that dogs are not permitted in the bedrooms or on the furniture. We also request that you do not allow your dog to foul inside the property gate for the sake of other guests enjoying the outside area/courtyard.

Please bring your dog's beds, blankets and bowls - we are unable to provide these.

Under NO circumstances can dogs be left alone in the cottages, unless in a secure dog-crate. This is stressful for the dog in a strange place and often results in damage/scratched doors and furniture etc.

Please Note - Guests are liable for any damage caused that requires repair/replacement, or extra cleaning.
