Maple Bank is a dog-friendly bed-and-breakfast and our four-legged guests are very welcome.

Tara – our resident Border Terrier – is happy to share the large garden behind the house.  In fact, when you all check-in with your furry family member you will find a welcome box in your room: Tara's Treats.

 The garden is fully enclosed and netted: a safe space to let your pooch stretch their legs after you arrive, or to pop down to first thing in the morning, or just before bedtime.

Pooh-bags are available at the front door in case you run out, along with a torch and spare leads in case you forget when you pop downstairs.  Please put your used pooh-bags in the green metal dustbin by the shed in the back garden.

Extra towels are also available by the front door in case of any damp paws, and doggy towelling dressing-gowns can be borrowed in case of a real down-pour!  Or in case you take your pooch for a swim.  We often take Tara up to The Dam in the village.

Don’t forget to bring your dog-bed - and bowls - as we do find it helps them settle more quickly into their new surroundings.  There is a tray in each room for all water and food bowls to sit on, and the bedspreads and cushions are removed and replaced with washable throws, fleeces, and extra pillows with funky pillowcases.  All of which are washed after each canine stay.  Each room is cleaned thoroughly after our four-legged guests check out.

Not all our guests have dogs staying with them, so we do ask that you consider the other house guests when you’re coming in and out of the house.  For this reason, we keep the breakfast room dog-free during breakfast time, so please either pop your pal(s) in your car during breakfast, or you can leave them in your room, if they are contained securely and won't get distressed.  We do have two crates available if you need them.  Please note that any damage to the room caused by an unattended and unsecured dog will be charged for at departure.

We charge £10 for one dog, per stay.  £15 for two dogs, per stay.
