Dog Friendly

We are not just dog ‘friendly’, we are passionate about dogs!

Often we travel with Winnie & George, our Schnoodle dogs, so we really understand what makes a difference to a luxury holiday for the ‘whole’ family. We take great delight in making all of properties dog friendly – please contact us if you have any queries about your pet’s stay with us.

Acres of Doggie Heaven

Plas Llangoedmor has 30 acres to explore with a secured field that can be used by guests staying in either the main house or the Gardener’s Cottage. All of the properties in the Plas Estate have secured outside areas and facilities specifically designed for the comfort of your dog. During your relaxing West Wales holiday, you can access many public footpath walks and trails in the Ceredigion landscape, straight from your doorstep. Or to blow away the cobwebs and enjoy a slice of real ‘doggie heaven’ take a short drive to the local dog friendly beach, Poppit Sands, a huge sandy expanse waiting to be explored by excited paws!

We look to provide a V.I.Pup experience in every way, and so far we have been rated five paws!

Pet Portrait by Anne Cakebread

Digital Pet Portraits

With our dog friendly holiday cottage, we’re always on the lookout to add to our V.I.Pup experience. We work in partnership with local award-winning artist, Anne Cakebread and can now offer a digital pet portrait service. Send us your favourite photo of your dog two months prior to your visit and on your arrival at Plas Estate an original piece of digital portraiture will be ready for you. The pet portrait can then be reproduced on canvases, mugs, T.Shirts – pretty much whatever you want.

Alternatively, whilst on your fab break in West Wales, if you take a great doggie pic, we can post you a lasting pet portrait memento after your visit.

Here’s our own dogs, Winnie & George, digitally reimagined!

Simply get in touch for pricing and further details.
