We stayed in Must Love Dogs over the NY holidays and really loved it. The 1840s cottage was lovingly restored by its current owners, Charlie and Chris. A charming space was welcoming for both humans and theirs fur friends. The bed was soft and comfy, and the Main Street was surprisingly quiet at night, so we slept well. The dogs...

Absolutely delightful location for a break with our furbabies! Chris is one of the most friendly and welcoming hosts I have ever met and Charlie is a stand-out breakfast chef! The rooms were incredibly clean without even a bit of dog hair to be seen on our arrival and yet our dogs were welcome everywhere! They work incredibly hard to...

The human and canine hosts are all very friendly, welcoming and interactive. It is a traditional BnB where a cooked...

Because this time we felt like we were coming back to friends. Chris and Charlie are wonderful hosts and really do go the extra mile to make dog loving guests welcome. The winery tour Charlie runs is great fun and personalised to the guests' wishes while Henry our Brittany was happily dog-sat by Chris. Their recommendations of where to go...

So good to find a B&B that says it is dog friendly and actually is!! Our Dalmation felt right at home.
