About Holidays in Devon With Dogs

Devon is sandwiched between Somerset and Cornwall, and it’s famous for the delicious cream teas that are served here. With a pretty northern and southern coastline, visitors have their pick of great beaches here.

Dartmoor and Exmoor are both in Devon, so there is space to roam here with the dog. The cities of Exeter and Plymouth provide lots of history, shopping, restaurants and museums, and both places are university towns.

There are amusements and funfairs, and Ilfracombe comes with an arty vibe, plus there’s Clovelly, a sleepy fishing village that appears to be frozen in time. Whatever you want from a British holiday, our fantastic dog friendly accommodation in Devon allows you to achieve that.

The Last Word

A favourite with families, couples, the young and the old, Devon has a lot to offer holidaymakers who are looking for a pet-friendly escape. Two national parks, north and south coasts, fishing villages, lively seaside resorts, a historical city and a nautical centre are just some of the great places on offer here, with many attractions being dog-friendly.

You can relax in peace and quiet or throw yourself into amusements and activities – the choice is entirely yours. Dogs are more than welcome most of the time, and that includes the beaches, pubs and museums.

It’s so much nicer than leaving them at home by themselves. For dog friendly cottages in Devon, you can take your pick from our vast range of accommodation.
