    Slate reply. I agree with other peoples answers in that you use the village car park. The area appears to be as safe as any public car park

    Hi -During our stay well behaved dogs were allowed, I believe the only no-go area is the morning / breakfast room. I also think if you are staying at the hotel there are "dog friendly" rooms and annexe listed on the tariff.
