Second time my friend and I have stayed at Signal Box cottage with our two dogs. Perfect place for dogs, lots of places to walk them. It's the first time I've managed to tire my dog out. It's lovely and quiet too. Don't think about it book it!!!

Signal Box Cottage

We have stayed at many dog friendly cottages and Signal Box cottage is the best by far. Conveniently situated with all mod cons and very safe garden for the dog. The fact that it is very rarely available tells its own story.

The weather wasn't brilliant but this cosy contemporary cottage was an ideal place to stay. Within easy reach of the beach and good shop nearby. Good walking on the doorstep and good size enclosed garden for dogs. Also pub nearby. Very clean and simple stylish decor.
