6. Purecamping

The campsite acknowledges being dog-friendly but imposes some restrictions. While attempts have been made to accommodate dogs, experiences have varied, including incidents such as a cat being mauled. Dogs are currently not allowed in furnished bell tents or cabins due to challenges in removing pet hair and traces. This restriction aims to prevent issues for guests with allergies. An alternative is the local dog-minding service provided by Sandy, offering day care, full board, and doggy B&B. When on-site, including the woodland, dogs are required to be on leads out of consideration for the campsite's resident animals.
