Information for dog owners
Hawthorns is a dog friendly place, with an enclosed garden (although we cannot guarantee that it is dog proof - some dogs are very persistent!) and with the saltings so accessible, it is a great place for walks.
However, we do have some basic rules for visiting dogs to ensure that the garden is a safe and clean place for children, and to preserve the cleanliness and condition of the cottage. Please adhere to our conditions as we do want to continue to allow canine friends to holiday with their families.
Dogs are not allowed on the furniture - this includes beds, sofas and chairs
Downstairs only please
They must not be left unattended in the property
They should be provided with their own bedding and feeding bowls
Any deposits in the garden must be picked up and disposed of in bags
Please be considerate to visitors who may be staying nearby and do not allow your dog to bark constantly - one of the beauties of the site is the quiet and peaceful location.
It is recommended that you bring a couple of dog towels as they can get extremely wet and dirty out on the saltings (particularly if they like swimming). There is a hose at the back of the house where dogs should be washed down before re-entering the cottage if they are in a dirty state.
As the main living area is open-plan, the soft sofas and chairs are very tempting for dogs at night-time, so if you leave them in this room overnight, please make sure that they can't get up and sleep on them.
