Dog Friendly Hotels in Torquay
The Editor Says: If, like me, you like nothing more than legging it around on beaches and stuff, then Torbay is absolutely banging. Of course, there’s the pesky ubiquitous dog ban on many of the area’s beaches during the summer (presumably because we might pee up a sandcastle or whatever), but there are others such as Churston Cove, St. Mary’s Bay, and Goodrington Sands (north) where we can run around like dingbats all year. Alternatively, you can always go for a leisurely mooch around the gardens and park at Greenway near Brixham.
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.
