"Poppit Sands - our favourite dog friendly beach"
We therefore welcome well-behaved dogs and their owners. North Pembrokeshire is a great place to bring your dog, with many wonderful walks and beautiful dog-friendly beaches. We have two whippets and one lurcher x whippet who live in the house with us and can be seen soaking up the sun in the front window. They are very happy to welcome dogs into their house, but we do endeavour to keep them away from guests and other dogs unless they are requested.
Dogs are welcome to stay in our B&B. They are also allowed in our guest lounge/dining-room, but we do ask that you be aware that we have other guests staying and that your dog is kept on a lead whilst in the house. At busy times it may be preferable during breakfast to leave your dog in your car.
We are familiar with many of the best places to go with your dog and are happy to recommend walks or places to visit. Many of the beaches nearby are dog-friendly, although some to have dog bans during May – September. Poppit Sands (a five minute drive) is dog-friendly all year round, with only a small section of the beach where dogs are not welcome.
Many of the places we recommend to eat are pet-friendly and we are happy to provide suggestions for you.
