Pet-Friendly Accommodation in Greyton
For most travellers who own pets, it’s important to be able to take your four-legged friends along with you when it’s time to go on a weekend getaway or holiday road-trip. One of the great things about spending time in the beautiful town of Greyton, is that there are several dog-friendly establishments where pets are more than just allowed – they’re welcome!
Greyton is located in the Western Cape’s Overberg region and features peaceful, picturesque streets lined with majestic oaks, leafy lanes and historical thatched cottages. The landscapes all around this quaint village comprise some of the best Fynbos in this part of South Africa. Here you and your pets can explore the 17km Greyton-McGregor Hiking Trail if you’re feeling adventurous. Also don’t miss out on the Saturday morning market where you can pick up amazing local produce and home-cooked delicacies, as well as home-made pet treats and even toys.
The majority of the pet-friendly accommodation options in Greyton are self-catering. However, it is possible to find both B&Bs and a hotel in town that also provide facilities for travellers with pets. Most families that travel with their pets tend to opt for the attractive country-side cottages where dogs can run relatively free around a farm or smallholding. You can choose from the most down-to-earth accommodation for rustic getaways or get upmarket fully-fitted country houses with amenities and furnishing, creating the illusion of five start accommodation in the middle of the country.
It’s a good idea to let your hosts know about any pets in advance. Just in case this may incur additional costs or if your animals have any special needs that might require preparation from their establishment. You’ll find that this community has built a great relationship of mutual respect when it comes to pet-friendly accommodation and everyone plays their part to preserve this welcoming attitude.
In Greyton, you can find very basic garden cottages to completely free standing houses on farms and estates that can cater for large families and gatherings, as well as pets. Most self-catering accommodation in this part of the Overberg comes fully equipped with linen, towels and braai wood. You’ll love the country-style décor and homely touches, from stoeps and braai areas to plunge pools and Jacuzzis. And don’t be surprised if you have the occasional sheep, cow or horse wander through your garden during your stay. There are also many other types of wildlife and even birds in this region including South Africa’s national bird the Blue Crane.
