Odle Farm Rules for Dogs (and their humans)


We welcome up to two dogs per booking in Willow and Wisteria cottages. 

Odle Farm is a fantastic location for a holiday with your dog! We have some wonderful walks on our doorstep in the beautiful Blackdown Hills AONB. Rivers and streams to paddle and swim in and only 30 minutes to the coast if you fancy a day at the beach. 

There is an enclosed patio area outside your back door, a separate enclosed grassy area to play in, and a wood burning stove to curl up in front of after a long day (Wisteria cottage)!

The Sidmouth Arms pub in the village is dog friendly, which is just a few minutes by car or a 30 minute stroll along country lanes. 

We don’t like having lots of rules and regulations because we realise that dogs are very much part of people’s families, however our cottages are very much part of our family so please look after them for us. 

We think it only fair that as a prospective visitor, our House Rules for Dogs should be plainly stated so you can decide if Odle Farm is right for you & your pet/s. 

  • We ask that you don't allow dogs upstairs, in any of the bedrooms or on the furniture, and that they are not left alone in the cottage. If you want to visit a local attraction that doesn’t allow dogs or a day on the beach/shopping without your dog please let us know/get in touch and we can arrange “doggy day care” for you.
  • Please clean up after your dog/s - both inside and out. Please bag and bin all deposits, in case you run out, poo-bags are provided in the Doggie-Box. There is a vacuum cleaner in the cupboard at the bottom of the stairs and a mop and bucket on request..
  • We are surrounded by footpaths, bridleways and country lanes making for excellent walking country, this is a farming area though so we ask you to please respect our neighbours and keep close control of your dogs while out and about. If you are at all uncertain as to whether your dog will chase livestock please keep your dog on the lead.
  • If your dog/s are wet and muddy please keep them in the kitchen until they are clean and dry. If your dog/s don’t like being shut behind a door we have an easy to put up stair-gate which fits between the kitchen and the lounge, stored in the cupboard at the bottom of the stairs.
  • If you do use the towels provided by us for your dog/s, please do not wash or dry in your cottage, we have a designated machine for doggy laundry.
  • Dogs are only allowed upstairs if this has previously been discussed with us. We do try to be flexible and recognise some pets do like to sleep near their owners. Please don’t let your dog/s on the beds unless you have had a conversation with us about bringing your own bedding.
  • Our doggie-box has some toys in it for your dog/s to play with, plus a spare lead and some temporary dog-tags. Please return them at the end of your stay.

End of doggy rules!! We are confident that our guests are responsible dog owners and considerate human beings and will look after Odle Farm for us. This has certainly been our experience to date.

And finally....if you get home and find you have some lovely photos of your dog/s enjoying their holiday we would love to see them and put them on our Facebook page.
