We love your four-legged friends and are delighted to offer a variety of dog-friendly accommodation rooms at Wild Thyme & Honey.

Please note the following T&C’s when bringing your pets for an overnight stay.

  1. We have a variety of allocated bedrooms that can accommodate small/ medium-sized dogs, not all rooms are suitable. Guests therefore must confirm at the time of booking if requiring a dog-friendly room. Unless you have received confirmation that you are booked into a room where dogs are permitted, you may not have a dog in our bedrooms. This is because, whilst we love dogs, some guests do not, and may have sensitive allergies.
  2. Well-behaved dogs over 1 year may share their owners’ room for a supplement fee of £30 per night, inclusive of VAT. This fee covers the additional anti-allergic deep clean requirements.
  3. Guests are only permitted to have one pet in a room at any given time, unless authorised by management.
  4. Your dog must not be left alone in the bedrooms at any time. When dining with us, you are welcome to bring your dog with you to the pub’s designated dog-friendly dining areas, but do ask that your dog be well trained in public areas where food is being served.
  5. Staff are not permitted to care for your pet during your stay e.g., feeding/ walking.
  6. Please ensure your dog is always kept on a lead when in public areas of the pub and hotel.
  7. We appreciate accidents can happen; therefore, we ask that you let us know if any accident occurs. Any damage to the room caused by your dog will be assessed by our Duty Manager and any cost incurred will be charged to your card.
  8. We do politely request that guests control and manage noise made by their pets during their stay, especially in the evenings and overnight, to ensure it does not disturb other guests.
  9. Please take particular care when taking your dogs outside of the building and keep them on a lead until you feel it is safe to remove as there is a main road at the front of the pub.
  10. We reserve the right to review our accommodation commitment should continued disturbances to other guests occur.

Acceptance of Children
Children of all ages are welcome.

Damages and Breakages
Please take care when staying on our property. You are responsible and liable for any breakages or damages, which you or your party may cause to the accommodation or its contents. We ask that you report any incidents as they occur. We do not normally charge for minor breakages, but we may send you an invoice for repair or making good if the damage or breakage is significant and we may make an additional charge if you did not report breakages or damages.

We do not accept liability for any damage, loss or injury to any member of your party or any vehicles or possessions unless proven to be caused by a negligent act by ourselves or our employees or contractors whilst acting in the course of employment.
