Walking the dog…

Out at Warren Farm, we’re happy to welcome any well-behaved dogs. And by well-behaved, we mean the simple things, like being human- & other dog-friendly; keeping the barking, whimpering & begging to a minimum; and not heading for the hills at the merest hint of an open gate.

But even welcoming Pembrokeshire isn’t completely dog-friendly, and our travels with Molly & Minnie have highlighted some general rules of thumb to be aware of when out & about with your hound:

  • Most pub beer gardens welcome dogs on leads, but only a handful welcome dogs indoors – one of our locals, St Govan’s Inn in Bosherston, welcomes quiet dogs in the bar, and even has a special room (ask at the bar to be let into the Stable Bar) that dogs are allowed into. Perfect if you fancy a pint & a bite after walking around the Lilyponds or on your return from Broad Haven South.
  • Rural beaches are generally open to dogs all year round, but dog-walkers on National Trust-owned land may be required to keep their pooches on leads from May to September.
  • More popular beaches, especially those with adjacent towns or more heavily-frequented by families, are often closed to dogs altogether during the summer season. Please check before heading out.
  • Search the cottages on the Coastal Cottages dedicated dog-friendly site (http://www NULL.thewoofguide NULL.com/) for your home-from-home residence.

Of course, wherever you go, please do clean up & dispose of properly after your furry friend – fellow dog-owners who want to retain access to local amenities, families with barefoot members, and especially watersports fans diving through waves, will all thank you.
