Here at Alkington Grange Barns, we welcome one well behaved dog, to stay in two of our holiday cottages, Emma's Dairy and William's Hayloft. These cottages both have enclosed gardens so that your dog is safe and secure. Each barn also has a stairgate at the bottom of the stairs to keep your dog safely downstairs.
There are some wonderful walks right on your door step with the Shropshire Way and Whixall Walks running straight through the farm. The Shropshire Union Canal is less than a mile from our cottages and is wonderful walking for all the family.
Both barns have a "Walk's Folder", which is filled with maps, leaflets and information about places to walk with your dog.
