What is the situation regarding eating dinner/breakfast if staying with dog?
While we welcome dogs to the hotel in the bedrooms and grounds, we are unable to allow dogs into the Garden Room for breakfast or the restaurant for dinner. We are happy to serve breakfast in the bedroom. I hope this helps - Sue

Is the swimming pool indoors or outside?
The swimming pool is outside but heated to a delicious 85 degrees every day of the year! This, coupled with the hot tub at 95 degrees makes a really relaxing place to be (beside the open log fire) any time of year
