Wingham is a dog friendly town

Across the road from The Bank Guesthouse is the village Common, a lovely place to take your pooch for a stroll. The river is only a few minutes walk away as well if your dog is a swimmer.


The Garden Grub Cafe has a large courtyard that is pet friendly and can be accessed by the lane way to the left of the building. Bent on Food is also pet friendly and you can take you pets through the right hand door down into the garden. 


Old Bar is a fantastic off-leash beach (Leashes must be worn if you are within 50 metres from the flags when they are up.) Only a 30 minutes drive away and a nice long beach for walking. Crowdy Bay and Blackhead Beach are also pet friendly!

Pet Policy

Please be aware that if you have an accompanying pet in The Garden Room or Maitland Cottage that the management does not allow any pets on any of the guest furniture or bedding. Nor is any linen or towels allowed to come into contact with your pets. Should your pet damage any furniture, flooring, plants or paintwork during your stay then a fee applicable to the agreed cost of repair will be charged to your account. Please collect and dispose of all droppings. The commercial bin in the rear garden may be used for this purpose. NO pets are to be left in guest rooms unaccompanied by their owners. 

Fully Fenced

The Bank Guesthouse courtyard and garden are fully fenced and securely locked. A great spot for your pet to call their home-away-from-home.

Local vets

Only a minutes drive from The Bank Guesthouse is a fantastic vet clinic in case of emergencies or just a nail clip. Talk to our friendly staff, they can all wholeheartedly recommend them!
