We welcome you to bring your dog(s) and provide dog beds dog towels etc, so sorry but we can't accept your furry friend if he or she is feline due to family member who is a very severe allergy sufferer we hope you understand. We would love you to bring the whole family to stay but please be aware there is a large duck pond and a river very close by the house , so we would advise great caution if considering Kennox with small adventurous children because of safety.
