Great for Dogs and channel crossings. Posted 21-Aug-2014
Travelling from Devon to Eastern France with a family of 3 and 2 dogs! We needed to find somewhere to break the journey with an overnight stop before the early morning ferry across. Did a Google for dog friendly B&B's and this one popped up. 2 dogs and a Thomas (our son) no problem, just off the A20 and a 10 minute drive to the port in the morning! Rates were good too! So we thought why not? And what a little gem it turned out to be! Lovely location, great house and a fabulous couple running it. Nothing was too much trouble, even down to a 'flexible' breakfast time in the morning so we could get away for the ferry. The house is located in a huge area of open land, which we later found out was where the channel tunnel workers village was during construction. Now fortunately returned to countryside, the dogs were in heaven. They could charge around til their hearts content without worrying about cars and traffic - wonderful. The rooms were very clean and cosy, although my one (little) gripe would be that the family rooms aren't en-suite, it's a communal bathroom down the hall. But other than that minor inconvenience, it was a very welcome and enjoyable stay. So much so that we booked it for the return trip too!
