Dog friendly holiday cottages in North Devon
Bring your pet on holiday to North Devon
Looking to bring your dog - or whatever your pet might be - with you for your holidays? Then welcome - we've plenty of dog-friendly holiday cottages in North Devon.
What makes our cottages so dog-friendly is that the cottage owners are often pet-lovers themselves, and they understand that when you come on holiday, you want your four-legged friend to come too.
And the best bit is that a holiday in North Devon is a holiday for your dog too. Visits to the beach, lovely long walks, a lovely alfresco meal - all can be enjoyed with your pet here. Dogs are allowed on many beaches all year round, including Putsborough, Saunton, Woolacombe, Westward Ho! and Instow, and on some, such as Croyde, between October and Easter. Wonderful walks that must be enjoyed include those out to beautiful Baggy Point or Morte Point, and many spots in Exmoor National Park. You must also hop onto the South West Coast Path, which extends to Cornwall in the west and Somerset to the East - if you can walk that far.
Many North Devon cafes and pubs allow dogs (sometimes just in particular areas), but if you did want to go off for the day and leave your pet for a few hours, we can also recommend kennels in the area that offer a day kennel service.
Woolacombe and Mortehoe beach and walks
Woolacombe and Mortehoe are very dog friendly areas with plenty
of walks your dog will enjoy. At
Woolacombe to comply with Blue Flag and Seaside Award criteria,
dogs are not allowed between the rocks at the north end of the
beach and the stream from Good Friday or 1st April (whichever is
earliest) until the first Monday in November. This is a very small
area in comparison to the size of the beach. Dogs must be on
leads from the stream to Mill Rock from the same dates but may be
exercised without restriction from Mill Rock onwards. The Beach is
3 miles long with wonderful sand dunes for your dog to enjoy.

Saunton Beach & Braunton Burrows
Think dog friendly Braunton walks and Braunton Burrows will undoubtedly spring to mind...the Burrows frame the beautiful Saunton Sands beach and create miles of uninterrupted land for dogs to stretch their legs!
Although dogs are very welcome to have fun exploring Braunton Burrows, owners will need to stay close to them as there is often livestock grazing in some areas, and occasional nesting birds on the ground. Also, parts of the Burrows are used by the MoD for training and live fire can be used at times, so look out for warning flags. Just beside the Burrows, Saunton Sands is a dog friendly Saunton beach and at 3 miles long is another excellent dog friendly Saunton walk.
The premier surfing beach on the North Devon coast, Croyde Bay
is the centre of the North Devon surfing scene and a popular family
holiday resort. The village centre is set back from the surf beach
behind some high sand dunes, Croyde Burrows. A great family
beach, seasonal dog ban from Easter to September. Baggy Point
offers one of the best walks in Britain with spectacular views over
the coastline - the perfect spot for your pet to enjoy some
exercise. View Croyde Cottages

The small rocky cove, with its imposing coastline on either side, is regarded by some. as the jewel in the crown of Lee. It is a refreshing change to find such a spot, that has, as yet, remained untouched by the hand of time. At low water even in the height of the summer it remains a tranquil spot with its many rock pools and small sandy beach. For the more energetic, a multitude of splendid, contrasting, local walks stem from the village. Most are well signposted and vary in type and length. This could be considered as one of the most rewarding ways of experiencing the natural outstanding beauty of the area. Whatever the season or whatever the weather, we sincerely hope that you will enjoy your visit to our village. Dogs are welcome on the beach all year round.
