Assistance Dogs and other Pets
We welcome assistance dogs and are happy to exercise & clear up after them if requried.
We have 2 pet dogs of our own. They are not permitted in the guest bedrooms, or the kitchen whilst we are preparing food. However they do have access to the rest of the house, so Hopton would not be suitable for anyone with a severe dog allergy.
Both dogs are very friendly with everyone but they are bouncy! If guests request we can do our best to endeavour the dogs are kept away for the duration of your stay.
