This was the third occasion we have been here. We are happy,grand kids happy what more an you ask? Although dog friendly the accommodation has always been immaculate. There are sufficient amenities to keep children happy when the weather is inclement. The staff are good and helpful.

Fantastic place for us as we wanted a nice relaxing break. A great base for touring the area and, with the onsite pools and associated facilities as well as the Weir bistro, a great place to spend days onsite.. Incredibly dog friendly and we got to the coast on walks in about 20 mins - dog friendly beach too. Topping...

Stayed one week in Jacks House. 2 adults, 2 grown up children and 2 dogs. The whole stay was fantastic, you cannot fault anything. The house was definitely 5stars and extremely spacious with a good size garden. The pool and leisure facilities were so relaxing and i had a fantastic 90 minute massage on our last day. All the walks...

This place boasts 'dog friendliness' and it is so accurate. These are robust cottages with a dog /child gate at the bottom of the stairs in the chalets; an enclosed outdoor area for emergencies, and sensible flooring with throws for the furniture. If you are sensible and considerate there will be no problems with your dogs. The spa is wonderful...

Perfect for a dog friendly family holiday in UK - everything we hoped for and good weather too. Very friendly and helpful staff, spotlessly clean, quiet location, good cafe down the lane and lovely walks to coast or countryside. Both pools were very popular with our group of 12, lots to do on site without any additional cost.

This was our first, but definitely not our last, visit to Whalesborough. We were extremely pleased that this place lived upto all the reviews. Dog friendly and luxury are normally not found together, it certainly is here! Fantastic location and superb facilities.

Set in a beautiful vale close to the Coast but sheltered from the wind, Whalesborough Cottages are modern, well equipped and dog friendly. Included in the former farm is a wonderful Spa with Sauna, Steam Room, Gym and Swimming Pool. My wife and daughter enjoyed some of the Spa's treatments and apparently is well recommended. We also took advantage of...
