dog on holiday

Pet friendly self catering cottages

Although our cottages are finished and maintained to the highest standards, Arran is wonderful place to enjoy your dog and we do understand that many responsible dog owners wish to have their dog with them on holiday. Consequently we are pet friendly and we accept dogs, assuming owners accept our reasonable conditions which are laid out below.

Well behaved dogs are allowed in our cottages strictly by prior arrangement only and, as a general rule, we only allow one dog per cottage. We must be advised beforehand if you intend to bring a dog and we reserve the right to refuse any booking that we consider unsuitable for our cottages.

1. Dogs must not be allowed to make use of the garden as a toilet area.

If dogs are walked in the woodland any mess must be lifted.

2. Dogs are not allowed upstairs and must be kept off all furniture.

3. Dogs must not be left in the cottage unsupervised unless in a pet cage. (Dogs prone to barking when left alone should not be left in the cottage by themselves at any time).


4. As we are surrounded by farm land, dogs should be well supervised at all times, even in the garden

 5. In fairness to future guests, all pet hairs must be removed from rugs, furniture, curtains etc before departure.

In addition to asking you to accept our conditions, we ask for a deposit of £50 from dog owners. This is returned in full after your holiday in the event that their is no minor damage done or additional cleaning required.

In the event of any more major damage we reserve the right to claim from you the full cost of making good repairs or replacement.

Our thanks to all our previous dog owning guests

In all the time we have been in business we are happy to say that our dog owning guests have treated our cottages with respect and we have never found it necessary to withhold a deposit or make any further claim.   As long as this continues, we will continue to make dog owners welcome at Hamilton Cottages.
