My husband, our visually impaired mini w/h dachshund and myself had the most beautiful week at a fabulous apartment/suite in a b&b at Bulleigh Barton Manor, Ipplepen.
We were greeted by the owner who allowed us to drop our luggage off earlier than we had planned, he gave my husband a guided tour and promised us we would receive a delicious cream tea after we returned from a short sight seeing trip.
I was absolutely blown away by the beauty of the grounds and the Manor House. Our suite was spacious and extremely comfortable and there was a lovely dog hamper waiting for our dachshund in the suite, including high end dog food and treats, poo bags, a blanket To use during his visit plus many more lovely items.
The breakfast menu was outstanding and because our dog stayed with us we were in a separate dining room with an outstanding view over the gardens which we didn’t object to at all. There is a special menu that you can order hot items especially for the dog’s breakfast which is freshly cooked to order. The owners ask for a small donation for these which is given to a local animal shelter. Our dachshund adored his morning sausage and even though he’s blind he knew when the staff were about to pop the bowl in front of him. The staff here are absolutely amazing and nothing is too much trouble. Hidden away in a private area of the garden is a swimming pool and summer house which we took advantage of on many days. Our dachshund would stay in the shade next to the summer house as he isn’t keen on too much sunshine.
