A dog is welcome by prior arrangement, provided it stays downstairs. The garden to the right of the pathway at the front of the cottage belongs to Rosemary Cottage. The garden to the left belongs to the neighbour. As there is no boundary fence between the two gardens, please ensure that your dog is kept on the lead if in the garden and not allowed to wander.
We stayed in Rosemary Cottage last week and I would just like to say what a lovely place it is. We are staying in different cottages for several weeks at the moment and it's always so much more pleasent to stay in one like yours that has a good collection of local information and lots of handy little items that you occasionally need.
