Dog Friendly


Enjoy a holiday at The Cart Shed, Swallow’s Nest, with your dog. We are sure they will have as much fun as you. There are plenty of good dog walks both in the surrounding area and further afield and several pubs and cafes where dogs are welcomed.

We have two enclosed areas in which your dog can roam free and a private woodland to explore.

You will find maps and information in the holiday cottage, but here are a few of our favourite walks, pubs and cafes.

For a quick walk, simply take the lanes around the perimeter of the farm or extend the walk by going across the golf course.

Our Norfolk Terrier, Oscar, loves Fraisthorpe beach, which is a long stretch of flat sand and is a favourite with dog owners. He also likes a good walk on Bridlington beach followed by a trip to the ‘Little Indulgence’ café on Queen Street, near the harbour. If he’s lucky, the waitress gives him a sausage with his bowl of water.

The Westwood at Beverley is a large area of open pasture near to the racecourse and is perfect for dog walking. After your walk, visit the dog friendly Woolpack Inn or Lucia Wine Bar.

Our local pub, The Black Swan allows dogs in the taproom and in the large outside seating area.

We welcome up to two fully house trained, well-behaved dogs at a charge of £25.00 per booking (to cover the additional cleaning cost).

Please bring your own bedding, pet towels etc. and, if you need to leave your dog in the cottage unattended, please provide a dog cage.

Unfortunately, we are unable to accommodate dogs in the Woodland Hut.

“It has been so nice to find a place that welcomes dogs as well as people guests!”


“An amazing holiday cottage … Hugely dog friendly - our bundle of energy loved his stay, getting not one but two great sized, enclosed gardens to bound around in.”
