The Barn at Glanoer  – a Dog-friendly luxury hideaway in Mid-Wales

Happy-dog

We are very happy to welcome you and your dog to stay at The Barn at Glanoer. We are set in 8 acres of garden and farmland with plenty of local walks for you and your dog to enjoy.  The Barn has wooden floors downstairs and a small enclosed terrace and garden with direct access to the countryside, perfect for morning or evening walkies.

chicken-coopThere is no extra charge for dogs but every holiday home that caters for them must have a few rules to ensure the enjoyment of everyone. When you first arrive, we strongly recommend that you keep your dog on the lead until you get your bearings. Outside of the Barn terrace and garden, you are welcome to explore our fields but please bear in mind the Country Code. There may be livestock present (sheep / lambs and or cattle) and if so, your dog should be kept on the lead and under control at all times. Also, our chickens are very ‘free-ranging’ so we kindly request that dogs that are likely to chase or worry them be kept on the lead outside.

Inside the Barn, please do not allow your dog on the furniture – we appreciate that dogs like to lean so if you would like to borrow throws please ask.  Likewise, please do not allow your dog upstairs, a stairgate has been provided to help with this. Please tell us immediately if your dog (or you!!) has broken or damaged anything so that we can repair/replace it for yourselves or the next guest.

Please do not leave your dog unattended inside or outside the Barn, in a strange place, even well-behaved dogs may pine, bark or scratch. Please ‘pick up’ after them in the immediate area (spare bags are provided in the utility room) and bags to be put in the dog bin in the yard.

We do understand that from time to time, even delightful dogs have accidents, if this happens, there is anti-bacterial spray and paper towels provided in the kitchen. We’d also be grateful if you could wipe muddy paws and dry off your dog before coming into the Barn, if you need a fresh dog towel, there is a stack in the utility room.

As any responsible owner is aware, not everyone likes dogs, so please don’t let your dog approach any other guests or visitors unless they encourage it.

And finally if there is anything we can do to make you and your dog’s stay more relaxing please let us know!

Please note: as our own dogs are not allowed upstairs or on the furniture, we would be grateful for your co-operation to avoid the possible cost of additional cleaning. Thank you for your understanding.
