Bolberry Farm Cottages has won ‘Dog Friendly Business of the Year’ in the South West England Tourism Excellence Awards

Sean and Hazel Hassall of Bolberry Farm Cottages, feel like dogs with two tails after winning ‘Dog Friendly Business of the Year’ in the South West England Tourism Excellence Awards. 

They fought through amazingly tough competition to be one of the top few businesses in the expansive region of the South West. This area included businesses from the Isles of Scilly to Wiltshire and Gloucestershire and everywhere in between!

The Awards, which themselves retained their ‘Outstanding’ accreditation in the Awards Trust Mark scheme, are the culmination of 11 months of evidence gathering, online entry, judging and county awards. 

Hazel said: “We are absolutely delighted that Bolberry Farm Cottages have the accolade of a Gold award in the South West England Tourism Excellence Awards for their dog friendliness. For twenty years, we have been striving to create the best possible holiday experience for dogs and their owners”.

Bolberry Farm Cottages are three traditional barn conversion cottages nestling in the quiet hamlet of Bolberry, half-a-mile from the South West Coast Path. Sean and Hazel Hassall (owner-managers), pride themselves on their dog friendliness, welcoming dogs completely free of charge.

Before arrival, guests are provided with a dog-friendly beach guide and a list of dog-friendly eating establishments in the South Hams to help them plan their stay.

Dogs arrive to a welcome pack of treats, water, bowls, extendable dog leads, poop bags and collar tags. Complimentary buoyancy aids are also on offer for dogs staying at this coastal resort. Each cottage has an enclosed garden and within this a further enclosed area for easy late-night toileting.

After walking the stunning coast path, a countryside muddy walk or playing on one of the many nearby dog friendly beaches, paws can be washed in the handy dog wash.
