The Owner Says
We do accept dogs but as we are a working farm with livestock in all the surrounding fields, we would prefer dog owners to contact us directly so we can express the fact and the importance to keeping dogs under close control or on a lead at all times.
About Westland Farm
Families, couples,old and young. We have a selection of camping options and bed and breakfast making it an idea place for family get togethers, with younger families camping and older members of the family staying in the farmhouse bed and breakfast or one of the glamping options. We welcome tents, campervans, caravans (on the small separate caravan club 5cl site only), all kinds of groups – yes. Dogs are accepted (although not in the yurt) but as this is a working farm with livestock in all the surrounding fields the owners prefer dog owners to contact directly before booking. This is to express the importance of keeping dogs either on a lead or under close control at all times.
