Dog Friendly Hotels in South East Devon
The Editor Says: Although a lot of the beaches in South East Devon tend to have a ban on dogs during the Summer months (unsurprisingly), there are one or two we can still visit all year round such as the one north of the pier at Teignmouth, and also nearby Ness Cove. And, anyway, it isn’t as if there aren’t loads of other things to do. Dogs are welcome (for a small charge) at Bicton Botanical Gardens, and you can always go for a wander along the fabulous coast path including the “Valley, Ridge and Jurassic Coast” at Sidmouth. In fact, I once nearly broke my legs acting like a plonker in Sidmouth. Those were the days.
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.
