Its been a very long and wet, snowy and cold winter, and just yesterday the sun shone and their was a hint of warmth in the spring sunshine. Lovely primroses are in bloom all around the yurt camp in our hedges. Some lovely guests stayed over the weekend as well although its been a quiet week for the camp. We had to turn away a family on Friday night who arrived with their pet dog. Whilst we are animal lovers ourselves (and own our own dog) we are unable to accept pets of any kind at the yurt camp. There are too many livestock in the fields adjacent to the camp, along with our large feral cat colony, our own poulrty and numerous wild fowl on our lake, along with no facilities for a dog to sleep in a yurt or hut and we know that many of our guests would not be happy to stay in a bed that a dog may have slept on, so our rules are strict, so please do not turn up with your dog in the hope we might just allow it, as I am sory to say we will not accept pets no matter how well behaved they are. We are happy to recommend other local places to stay that may accept a pet, such as the Sea Trout Inn at Staverton. Unfortunately most camp sites have the same rules about pets so please make sure before you book with us that you dont expect your pet to come too.
