HELLO AND WELCOME TO THE LYN VALLEY DOG HOUSE!
My name is Jacquie, and I'm the dog mad owner behind Lynton and Lynmouth's Dog Emporium. The Lyn Valley Dog House, has been a dream of mine since moving to this beautiful part of the world from Gloucestershire. Lynton and Lynmouth are situated in an idyllic, dog walking haven, with some of the most stunning countryside in the UK. Our human visitors are well catered for with many pubs, cafes, restaurants, and shops to choose from, so I wanted to create a place for dogs, with a wide range of natural treats, offering everything the visiting canine may want, as well as a few lovely souvenirs to take home (and eat later).
Being a dog owner myself (I have two grumpy old Jack Russell’s and a mad Springer called Mabel) I know how important it is to create a space for owners looking to buy a few special items that will enhance their dog's lives, whilst giving them somewhere to meet fellow like-minded dog lovers. My shop provides this physical space and our lovely group of social media followers provides a similar community online. Please check our contact details below if you'd like to get involved. Nothing makes us happier than receiving pictures of our customers and their dogs!
Last year, in our second year of trading, we:
Improved our Subscription Boxes of natural treats.
Updated our website and on-line shop.
Created The Lyn Valley Dog House Club and enjoyed talks by our favourite groomer and trainer.
Organised indoor play dates for local furry friends.
Held the first of our afternoon tea parties.
Arranged with Market Vets to arrange delivery of medication for the village.
Organised community events which raised money for the Dogs Trust including Howl-o-Ween, and photo opportunities with Santa Paws and with a local petting farm.
2023 is looking very different to what we had planned. The Welcome Boxes for local dog friendly accommodation, has really taken off and we out grew our little shop. Thankfully, there was a building just 25 steps to the left and we moved down the road. This has resulted in having two public rooms, one for the deli, barkery and ice cream parlour and a second room for our boutique, filled with everything your dog could want. We now have space to have so many more ranges and we are very proud to have the very best the South West can offer my customers. Beth from Rulyn Dog Grooming took over the kitchen in our new shop and is working 1-2 days a week making the pooches of Lynton and Lynmouth look very glamorous.
There are so many other things going on at the moment, so please subscribe to our newsletter (I promise one will happen very soon) and continue to follow us on social media xx
