Great deals on your dog friendly bed and breakfast stay in Gillingham, Dorset

wp-image--1620699115Just to get your attention – woof!  And here are some puppies – four Barbets born in April to beautiful Aura from Holland, who stayed with us with her breeder in January.

All of this is by way of a lead in to the announcement that we’re now partnering with new deals website My Doggy Travel,  which is a fantastic online resource for (currently) UK based dog owners who love to travel with their canine chums.  The site has lots of deals available on dog friendly travel bargains, which range from accommodation to discounted ferry crossings – and it’s completely free to use.  Just browse it by numbers of guests, dogs, price, area and so on and then contact the deal provider directly.

Of course,  we have an offer available – here’s the description on My Doggy Travel, where we are currently one of this week’s Top Deals.

To get the deal, just use the special offer code MYDOGGY when you book directly online with us.

And remember – we have a number of other offers available which aren’t dog related – do keep an eye out on our offers page,  as that’s where you’ll find the discount codes you need to make an online booking and get the special price or offer.

Woof! We look forward to meeting you soon.

Will you be attending a wedding in the Gillingham, Dorset area in 2017?

It’s often said in the hospitality trade that people don’t travel in January – but that they PLAN to travel.  And I’ve certainly found this to be true this week;  the phone has been ringing off the hook with people making enquiries and booking as far ahead into 2017 as October!

It’s very exciting to see the names filling up on the booking system and the #1 reason that people give at the moment when they tell me why they’re coming to Gillingham is … to attend a wedding. It’s such a beautiful area that I can absolutely see why happy couples would choose to get married around here and obviously lots of brides and grooms-to-be sent out their “save the date” reminders and invitations with their Christmas cards.  So we’re looking forward to welcoming lots of wedding guests to ‘Sunflowers’ this year – please do give me a call and book in as soon as your plans get finalised,  as the summer Saturdays are filling up fast!

Remember, our direct bookings always get the best prices as well as lots of little extras, such as an early check in if needed (we understand that you want to get ready for the wedding) and perhaps a glass of Prosecco to help get the party started. Please contact us – let me check the calendar and then you can tick that job off your January “To Do” list and start planning your outfit!
