Allergies and pets
Please note we do have two dogs, two cats and a tortoise at Crafty Retreats so if you have allergies please bear this in mind. We are also in the countryside so there will inevitably be pollen in the air, particularly at certain times of the year. If you suffer from hayfever you may want to bring any medicine you use at home with you.
