There’s no need to leave any of the family behind…
Are we dog-friendly?
We certainly are, though we are never over-run with dogs, so don’t worry if you’re not a dog-owner! We also ensure some of our rooms are never occupied by guests with dogs, in case of allergies.
But your canine companion is always very welcome here at Mill End – in fact we think this is the perfect place to bring your dog to enjoy some of the splendid walks we have on our doorstep. Dogs are charged at £8 per night each.
You’ll find a side entrance to the hotel which leads straight into the boot room. This is the ideal place to bring your dog if they have returned from a walk with wet, muddy paws. There is a basket of dog towels – please use as many as you like and leave them on the floor (they go in a separate laundry to your towels!).
You and your dog will be sure to enjoy a wander round our riverside gardens, but for some really great walking just take a stroll across the bridge and then follow the riverbank either downstream to pretty Fingle Bridge, or upstream to the village of Chagford. Responsible dog owners are always aware of this, but it is worth mentioning the need for prudence with livestock on the moors, particularly the lambs in springtime. Plus ponies on the moor can give a nasty kick if provoked! Your dog is welcome to join you anywhere in the hotel – including our comfy lounges – with the exception of the restaurant for obvious reasons.
If there is anything else we can help you with – detailed walking maps, an extra lead, or a bowl of water – please do ask. If on the odd occasion you want to go out for a longer period without your dog, and would like a sitter please let us know in advance– we’ll do our best to help.
During the third week of August, the annual Chagford Show is held in the field across the road. If you are here during that time, the show has some great dog showing classes and is a must for your canine companion. Please note our ground floor garden rooms are always very popular so we have a 2 night minimum stay restriction for these on weekends and during the high season May to October.
