The Property

The Dog House is a charming and quirky converted stable/barn. We (Frankie & Jen Lemen, and Ben the Greyhound) all fell in love with it the moment we saw it!

 

After lovingly renovating the property into a cosy, holiday cottage, we kept its former name, the Dog House. It is now truly a place to escape to and relax in, particularly if you have a hound (or a pack of hounds!) in tow...

Small, but perfectly formed, we and our past guests think that The Dog House ideal for a romantic getaway,  escape to the countryside or action packed adventure.

 

The Dog House is located to the rear of our main cottage, Arcadia, but we have ensured that it is private and you might only occasionally see a friendly greyhound snoot in the cottage garden, if we are around. 

When you enter Mere, head for Mill Lane (easily to find using Sat Nav), Edge Bridge. There is a terrace of three traditional cottages (the middle being our main cottage, Arcadia) with Mill Lane running to the left hand side. Head down Mill Lane and you will find the parking for the Dog House second on the right. Please park in the allocated space and use the signposted path to access the Dog  House and it's private patio.

The Accommodation

So there's no surprises (particularly, when, like us, you have a large greyhound in tow), here's what you will be able to enjoy at the Dog House:

  • Allocated parking on the main cottage drive, accessed off Mill Lane, Edge Bridge, Mere. We have an EV charger, which you can book at a separate pre-paid cost

  • Fully enclosed patio, with table and chairs. The patio, garden and gate are all fully secure so you can be sure that any hounds are safe outside

  • Self-check in with a PIN-secured garden gate and smart lock with personal PIN code to the front door (which is changed for each booking)

  • Secure enclosed bike storage for two bikes on the driveway, protected by a Ring security system

  • ​One upstairs bedroom with a double bed. We provide an extremely comfortable Simba mattress and all bed linen and towels

  • Lounge and dining area with comfortable sofa, TV (with access to apps via your own subscriptions) and dining area

  • Kitchen with small fridge/freezer, kettle, microwave, sink and essentials, such as mugs, cutlery, plates, bowls and glasses. It's perfect for making breakfast or a light lunch, but we would recommend eating out in the evening to sample the culinary delights of Mere and beyond

  • We provide tea, coffee (instant and a V60 with 01 filters if you prefer to bring your own ground coffee), sugar, salt and pepper

  • Shower room, with shampoo, conditioner and body wash provided

We welcome dogs of all shapes and sizes, with a dog bed and a throw for the sofa provided. Dogs can roam free in the cottage and in the fully enclosed patio area. We just ask that you clean up after your dog and ensure that they have a good time!

Unfortunately, due to the age and quirky nature of the Dog House and main cottage garden, we have been unable to make the property fully accessible, including for wheelchairs. Please do note that there is a small set of stairs in the garden and a second set of stairs up to the first floor bedroom. 

If you have any questions during your stay, then we are always here (on the end of the phone, or sometimes in person) to help.
