Dogs Welcome



Dogs are welcome at Poachers Hideaway – in any of the cottages – but please check with us when booking regarding breed and number – generally no more than 2 per cottage. Bowls and dog towels are provided in all cottages – and throws for the furniture if required. We would ask you to keep dogs off the beds and furniture.

There are several miles of private footpaths on the farm for you to explore with your dog and direct access to the Heritage Bridleway and Viking Way along with numerous public footpaths across the Wolds.

Dogs can be exercised on their lead to the side  of the cottages designated beyond widows lodge and around the lakes, but must be kept under control and on leads as there is livestock on the farm. “Pooh” bags can be disposed of in any of the bins around the farm – please pick up after your pets!

Many of the local beaches are dog friendly. e.g Theddlethorpe, Sutton on Sea and Hutoft – The beaches are flat and sandy – and expansive when the tide is out – great fun for the dogs.

Bluebell Inn* at Belchford,West Ashby Arms at West Ashby,  Three Horseshoes at Goulceby and The Durham Ox at Thimbleby are all dog friendly – dogs are allowed in the bar but please ring first if you wish to have a meal.

* Except Saturday evening.

There is a £20 charge per dog staying at Poachers Hideaway.
