Dog Friendly

We’re very happy to welcome dogs to Greenwood Grange. Almost half of our properties are dog friendly and the grounds include a fully enclosed dog exercise area, perfect for a gentle morning stroll before setting out for the day.

*News* News* News* From January 2023 we're going to make Casterbridge a dog friendly cottage.

These are our dog friendly cottages


View our Siteplan >

Most of our dog friendly properties have their own private enclosed gardens, with the exception of Anglebury and Kingsbere. Our cottages are large enough for 2 standard sized dogs e.g. Labradors, but if you are unsure please contact the team who will be happy to advise. We also have an enclosed dog walking paddock onsite, and we are adjacent to Thorncombe woods where you will find hectares of wonderful walks for you and your four legged companions. On site you will find poo bag dispensers by the laundry and entrance to the courtyard, and poo bins next to the main entrance gate and by the gate to the dog walking paddock. We can also supply bowls, feeding mats, leads etc if you forget to bring your own. A doggy welcome pack, including towel and treats awaits your arrival, and an information folder is available in each pet friendly cottage, containing details of local dog friendly pubs, restaurants and attractions.

Please keep your dog on its lead when walking around the site and particularly when first arriving, so that they can familiarize themselves to their holiday destination! Properties adjacent to yours may have other dogs in or may have children staying in who are nervous around animals, so please keep an eye on your pet and don’t leave them outside unattended to avoid any issues with other pets or children as these can escalate into a more serious situation and our aim is for everyone to enjoy their holiday with us.

We have a number of large dog crates that can be loaned to you during your stay, please reserve these when making your booking. Where possible please don’t leave your dog alone in the cottage uncrated to avoid any damage to the fixtures and fittings or to the dogs themselves. If you are going to the swimming pool, please notify a member of staff that the dog is crated in the cottage so that we can find you if there are any problems with noise etc. Any damage to the property fixtures and fittings are the pet owners responsibility. If any dog is causing problems or distress to other guests, we reserve the right to ask the owner and pet to leave the site.

We can offer a dog sitting service by prior arrangement, please contact the team on 01305 268874 or

So bring the whole family.

There’s a treat waiting for your four-legged friend to chew on whilst you check in.
