Dog Friendly Cafes & Restaurants

Bringing your dog on holiday is a popular choice at Wallops Wood. All of our cottages are dog friendly and guests love spending time with their pooch! The dogs that come here have a great time and enjoy being out and about with their family.

We’re often asked if there are any dog friendly cafes, restaurants and places to eat than can be included as part of a day out. Aside from our local pubs there are several cafes and places to eat out where you can take your dog while exploring the area.

NB Please check the dog policy with each venue before setting out and advance booking may be required.
