Dog Friendly Hotels in Plymouth
The Editor Says: The really handy thing about staying in the Plymouth area is that you’ve got Dartmoor, the South Hams and South East Cornwall all on the metaphorical doorstep. Quite what a metaphorical doorstep looks like, I don’t know, but never mind. While you can always have a pootle along the Hoe where Francis Drake played bowls (apparently), there are also lots of dog friendly places just a short drive away from the city. Four legged beings are welcome in the park at Saltram House (though not in the building itself), on leads at Morwellham Quay, and in Mount Edgcumbe Country Park at Torpoint, amongst others.
Booking Online: Making a reservation with Booking.com or LateRooms.com is easy and convenient. When doing so it is important that you make clear your intention to bring your dog in the “special requests” box so that the hotel or inn is made aware in advance. Please note that our “Paws Policy” information is for approximate guidance only and that the hotel, inn or bed and breakfast’s actual policies may change at any time and/or be more comprehensive. We play no part in the actual booking process.
