Holly Meadow Farm
Ranked #1 of 1 Bradley B&B and Inns
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed July 17, 2012

Holly Meadow gives a false impression by advertising itself as 'Dog Friendly', they are extremely selective on the breed type they allow opposed to the behaviour of the animal. We have a PAT (Pet As Therapy) dog which was not of an acceptable breed for this establishment and declined to stay. My advice is snobbery is not dead......As a professional couple I find it bizarre that this business should judge purely on breed which isn't even on the dangerous dogs list and is a total asset to the breed. The B&B is somewhat prone to looking down its nose, very short sighted decision making.

Stayed: July 2012, traveled as a couple

We do appreciate this dog owner's disappointment. Having experienced a problem with a Staffordshire Bull Terrier in the past and following the advice of our vet, we are unable to accept this breed of dogs.
