Arriving for your stay on Zen Dog

Zen Dog will be made available for you from 3pm on your arrival day. Sam our caretaker will have cleaned, made the beds up and provided clean towels. Please vacate by 10am on your departure day.

COLD WEATHER: If the weather is cold, you can switch the heating on before you arrive by sending Zen Dog a text message. The instructions are in the Heating, Ventilation & Air Con Section further down this guide

You need to collect the keys and other information from the Marina Office on the first floor of the main Marina Building.

We recommend following the signs to the Marina Office as you drive into the Marina then parking for a few minutes in the visitor spaces in front of it.

The team in the office are very friendly and helpful. They will be aware of your arrival – we email them in advance. If there is any issue, remind them of this. You’ll need to show them some ID.

They will give you a single key to Zen Dog and a key fob that unlocks the various security gates, barriers and doors.

Before you leave, check out the Marina Bar and Restaurant on the same floor as the office. They now offer a 10% discount for berth holders and their guests. You’ll need the key fob – apparently, they scan it at the bar. Best to ask when you arrive.

Have a look at the excellent showers, laundry etc on the ground floor. There are very decent toilets and showers closer to the boat but they are not as luxurious as the “5 star” facilities in the main building. Whether they are worth the walk is down to you!

Drive out then left and continue straight on into the berth holders’ car park. In the season, you might need to use the key fob to open the barrier.

You’ll pass the first “bridgehead” (a gate and ramp down to the pontoons) on your left. There is another set of excellent “4 star” showers and toilets there. Carry on though – you need to park right at the far end of the car park.

You need to access the pontoons from the furthest bridgehead away from the Marina Office. Use the key fob to open the gate. You will drop down to the pontoons. There is another set of toilets (“3 stars” and no showers) in a Portakabin type building to your left. Turn right and first left onto M pontoon. Walk carefully along for 100 metres or more. You are looking for Berth M23 – about 2/3rds of the way along on your right but you can’t miss Zen Dog – She is moored with her stern in to the pontoon for easy access and she’s got her name in big black letters.
