Devon for Dogs

Dog Friendly in Devon

Devon has everything you want from a British holiday. Rolling sand dunes, stunning coastlines, and let’s not forget those cream teas. It’s an awesome place to escape to with the whole family. And that means the dog too.

So we want to give you a heads up on all the wonderful places you can go and all the things you can do together while in Devon.

Quince Honey Farm

Quince Honey Farm welcomes all the family (yep, that means dogs too) to visit their unique attraction, BeeWorld. It’s the world’s largest exhibition of honeybees, and it’s seriously fascinating! You can take a close look inside the working hives and attend some interesting talks before tasting some of the delicious honey in the shop or treating yourself to a cream tea with honey in the cafe. Dogs are allowed everywhere, except the play areas.

The Milky Way Adventure Park

Friendly dogs are welcome in most of this multi-award winning Adventure Park. There’s loads to enjoy from innovative play areas, rollercoasters and live shows. There really is something for everyone, making it a great day out for you, your little ones and your furry friend. All they ask is you keep your pooch on a lead.

Becky Falls

Becky Falls welcomes thousands of dog walkers every year who bring along all sizes of breed, from tiny Chihuahuas to enormous Great Danes. The variety of walks available at the park (shorter and flatter to longer and more challenging), means that there's a walk for all ages and abilities, whether they have two legs or four!

Mountbatten Point

Mountbatten Point to the east of Plymouth is a popular spot for dog walkers. There’s plenty of free parking, a small beach called Batten Bay and a great route up to Mountbatten Tower and along the breakwater. There’s also a scenic walk along the coast path for about 20 minutes to Jennycliff where you’ll be greeted by a green, a picnic area, a lovely cafe and steps to the pebble beach.

Okehampton Castle

With its stunning location surrounded by woodland and countryside, this castle makes a beautiful walk for your family and the dog. You can explore the ruins of this once great castle, which was even written about in the Doomsday Book. There are also great views to enjoy, and a lovely walk around the site with plenty of wildlife to spot by the river.

Babbacombe Cliff Railway

The Babbacombe Cliff Railway transports the whole family quickly and affordably (dogs go free!) from the beautiful Babbacombe Downs to the gorgeous Oddicombe Beach, and back. Whilst there you can check out amazing views, and even treat yourself in their brand new Beach Café where dogs are welcome in the outside seating area. From 1st October until 30th April each year, your dog can venture onto the main Beach. But the rest of the time, they ask that dogs stay on the promenade.

The BIG Sheep

The BIG Sheep firmly believe a pup is part of the family - and that means they deserve a holiday too! They have working dogs on site and although only registered guide dogs are allowed inside the park, they provide FREE kennels, shaded parking and a large dog walking area. Just give them a ring in advance to check availability.

Mid Devon Show

Here they host exciting agricultural shows with loads to see from exhibitions and crafts to motorbikes and tractors! With plenty of space and gorgeous scenery every man and his dog are drawn to the area on a regular basis. Their next show is on Saturday 23rd July 2016 and dogs are welcome on a short lead.

Stuart Line Cruises

Stuart Line Cruises is a family run business based in Exmouth welcoming the whole family aboard, including our four-pawed friends. Well behaved dogs of all breeds and sizes can take in the scents of the River Exe throughout the year. During the summer months they can sniff out something new in a coastal town, take a boat and train ride or simply relax as the boat sails along the Jurassic Coast World Heritage Site. No charge is made for dogs to travel and the crew will be more than happy to provide a bowl of fresh water.

Grunta

As they say, good things come in small packages, and Grunta is no exception to the rule. This little cove of sand and rock is a great place for a short stroll or quick game of fetch, best visited when the tide is low. Set amongst the cliffs, Grunta is quiet and scenic, so let your pup off his lead and enjoy watching him play free.

Rockham Bay

Reachable by foot only, Rockham bay is just asking to be explored! Appropriately named, the beach is home to many a rock pool filled with creatures waiting to be discovered, so your four legged companion may not be the only animal on the beach. This secluded gem of a bay is also especially sandy for all the family, dogs included, to enjoy.

Saunton Sands

It wouldn’t be a holiday without a trip to the beach, and your dog thinks so too. This beach in particular is great for your furry friend. Three and half miles of sand mean they can run and run, and the views make it very popular with everyone, including dog walkers. Make sure you explore the dunes at the back where your dog will love chasing sticks climbing over rocks.

Batten Bay

A little beach, but a lot of fun. And not just for your dog, but for you too. Just a 5-minute walk from the car park lies the sandy beach with stunning views across Plymouth Sound and beyond. It makes for a wonderful stroll while your pooch sniffs around and plunges in the water. You’ll both love it.

Hope Cove

This picture perfect beach is a hit with everyone, because what family holiday would be complete without a day at the beach? Located near our Challaborough Bay park, Hope Cove is sheltered, sandy and stunning. It’s another beautiful place to let your dog feel the sand between its paws.

Fairy Cove

This beach doesn’t just have a pretty name, it’s a very pretty beach too! Red sand and shingle with red cliffs behind make it pretty unique looking, and at low tide there are loads of interesting rock pools to explore. Popular with families, and of course dogs are allowed all year round. Lovely.

Beacon Cove

If you’d like to get your dog exercising, check out Beacon Cove. Just a little walk away from Torquay harbour side, the cove offers a much less crowded beach so there’s more room for your four legged friend to run its fastest. If running’s not for you sit back and relax on the nearby promenade and enjoy the view.

Anstey Cove

Venture just a little out from Torquay and you will come across the peaceful and idyllic Anstey Cove. With its limestone cliffs, interesting rock formations and views across Lyme Bay to the Dorset coast, you could spend hours exploring with man’s best friend.
