3 Star Reactive Dog Friendly

3 Star Reactive Dog Rated

Little Bent Cottage is a 3 STAR top rated Reactive Friendly cottage. Here are the reasons why: Little Bent Cottage is situated on a very quiet rural road. On closing the gates, the garden is secure (though if you have jumpers, please note height of fence and walls). There are two secure adjoining dog paddocks with 6 feet high fencing all around. Little Bent Cottage guests have EXCLUSIVE access to both paddocks and there is no livestock currently in the surrounding fields. If your dog is reactive, although we cannot police where the farmer puts his livestock, it is possible to just use one paddock to avoid confrontation. Mostly the ground is used for grass with only very occasional grazing

6 reviews for Little Bent Cottage, Staffordshire and Peak District

  1. Natali Glanney

    Just to add to our smaller review that we left in the guest book. We had a lovely time at the cottage. Our reactive dog was the most relaxed we’ve ever seen her. It was particularly wet for our stay but we stuck to the first field and it was great. There were a few sheep in the neighbouring farmer’s field but our dog couldn’t see them from the first field as it is well protected by hedges. She’s a jumper and has a fondness for escaping but the fields were well enclosed and we didn’t worry about letting her off in the field area. We kept her on the lead for the garden area around the house. Pauline was a great host and puts in all the small details which is lovely. Cake, milk and eggs on arrival and came to greet us. As we were leaving she even popped by with goodbye cupcakes! The cottage was lovely and warm despite the weather and plenty of space for 3 adults and 2 children. We hope to return one day!

  2. Evie, MIchael, Natali, Mark and Martine

    We’ve had the most amazing time in your cottage. Our dog loved it as well. We loved playing outside and playing the games you left for us
    We all agree to give it a 10/10 and 5 stars!

  3. Sue, Les, Nibby and Jasper

    Brilliant few days despite the weather. Lovely cottage, warm, cosy and some lovely personal touches.
    It’s been a long time since we came to Staffordshire but will definitely be returning to Little Bent Cottage
    Great walks around Rudyard Lake and the dogs enjoyed their swim
    The Reform Inn was a good place to eat and dog friendly
    A special thank you to Pauline for making us so welcome. The cake was delicious and the dogs enjoyed their homemade treats
    Fantastic base to explore the surrounding area. Promise to return but perhaps in the warmer weather

  4. Sue and Shaun

    We’ve had a lovely time. Both cottage and area are delightful and we would love to return. The goodies and cake on arrival were delicious. The dogs loved the interesting walks and the paddocks — which they never minded any boggy bits! Thank you for a lovely break – a great place to celebrate our birthdays! Beds also super comfy – think we will be investing in one of those mattresses!

  5. Claire and the three shepherds

    I wanted to express our deepest gratitude for allowing us to stay at your wonderful home. From the moment we arrived, we were absolutely enchanted by the cosy atmosphere and the warmth that greeted us. Everything was simply lovely!
    The attention to detail you’ve put into every corner of the home truly made our stay feel like a dream. We couldnt have asked for more. But what truly made our hearts sing was how accommodating you were towards our furry friends. The fact that our dogs were allowed to feel as comfortable and at home as we did, speaks volumes about the welcoming environment you have created.
    We’ll return home with cherished memories and tails wagging with joy, it really provided us the perfect retreat and we cant thank you enough for that!
    Rest assured Ill be singing your praises to my friends, family and follwers and Im already looking forward to the next opportunity to visit again
    Once again, thank you and warmest regards

  6. Shelly and Dave and Asha, Chester and Barkley

    Many thanks for a lovely stay at Little Bent Cottage and all your help with the wheel!
    Very well equipped, absolutely loved the little extras, cakes and biscuits.
    The poches loved the home made doggy biscuits and the paddocks to run around – they couldn’t get enough, and wanted to be in there all the time
    So nice to stay somewhere so quiet and comfortable and that allows three dogs! Definitely got the ‘Paws Up’ from them!
    We will definitely recommend you ands stay again!
    Thanks
