Bringing your dog:

If you would like to bring your dog with you on holiday, this page provides some useful information:

  • You must let us know at the time of making your reservation, so we can ensure you have a suitable room.  We restrict dogs to our GROUND FLOOR rooms as these are the most suitable.
  • Airlines are unlikely to be able to accommodate a dog travelling box - so the best way is to bring him/her in your car by fast ferry from Poole with the journey time being just over 3 hours.  You can bring a dog if travelling as foot passengers but your dog will have to to be kept in a cage (provided by Condor on the car deck for the journey. More information can be found on Condors website: 
  • Bringing your car makes it easier for you to bring all the things your dog will need, including food and bedding etc.
  • There are no restrictions with bringing a dog from the UK to the Channel Islands but the usual Pet Passport Scheme is required if you intend visiting France or indeed travelling from Europe.
  • We make a daily charge at the hotel - this is on our Hotel Tariff page.
  • Should you need to buy anything for your pet whilst here, Ransoms Garden Centre is the best place to go.  This is only a five minute drive from the hotel.  Dog food can also be bought from the local supermarket which is just behind the hotel.
  • Apart from the beach, there is a large 'common' and golf course opposite the hotel.  Whilst your dog has to be on a lead on the beach (see below), you can exercise your dog freely on the common and golf course.


  • Dogs MUST be kept on a lead if on the beaches between 1st May and end of September between the hours of 10.30am and 6pm.
  • Dogs must be kept on a lead if walking around any of the reservoirs at any time of day / year
  • You can be 'fined' £500 (five hundred pounds) if you do not clean up after your dog in any public place.


  • Most island maps show details of the many delightful cliff path walks that are mostly on the north and northwest coast.
  • There are also many quaint pubs along the routes where you can stop for lunch/refreshments.  Car parks are available and parking is free in the majority of them.
  • You are allowed to take your dog on the local buses FREE of charge, if you prefer to leave your car at the hotel.
