Dog friendly holiday cottages

Due to our location on a stud farm with many thorough bred horses running free in the cliff top fields & goats and chickens living within the grounds we are not able to accept dogs in all of our cottages, however we do love dogs and they are more than welcome to enjoy their holiday with us in Dream Cottage, Sadlers Cottage and Smiley Cottage.

Dream Cottage

Sleeps 2 | 5* Gold | Dog Friendly

Dream Cottage is the perfect choice for couples looking to retreat and relax in complete luxury and is dog friendly. With south facing views of the countryside and a private 2 person hot tub you are sure to fall in love with our beloved Dream.

Smiley Cottage

Sleeps 4 | 4* Gold | Dog Friendly | Accessible

Smiley Cottage is dog friendly and ideal for families and friends travelling together who require a wet room. Being dog friendly means all of the family can enjoy quality time together! Both ensuite bedrooms can be twin or double.

Sadlers Cottage

Sleeps 6 | 5* | Dog Friendly

Sadlers Cottage is a 6 person family cottage including a private hot tub for you to enjoy and is dog friendly making it the perfect choice for all of the family! Bedrooms can be twin or double.

Dogs are welcome to stay with us at Westward Living, we have a selection of dog friendly cottages for our guests to enjoy.

Assistance dogs are made very welcome all year round and Smiley Cottage is our recommended property for guests requiring an accessible cottage or wishing to bring an assistance dog. We do accept dogs in Smiley & small dogs in Sadlers & Dream Cottage by prior arrangement, however all dogs are expected to be on a lead at all times and not to jump up on sofas or beds.

If you are considering bringing a dog please advise us prior to booking to check if this is permitted & we will forward you a copy of our dog policy for your consideration.  We are big dog lovers but do not attempt in anyway to falsely promote ourselves as a dog friendly environment as our priority is protecting the wellbeing of the livestock we have on site.

There is a £30 surcharge for bringing along your four legged friend to cover to cost of a deep steam clean that is carried out after your departure.  This is not intended to offend in any way, but is simply to ensure that the fibres of the fabrics and soft furnishings in the cottage are ready for our next guests and will not affect any future guests with allergies.

The grounds at Westward Living offer direct access onto the South West Coastal Footpath and to  Westward Ho! beach. The beach stretches for more than two miles from the village towards Appledore and the Torridge estuary. Stop for a coffee, chat to other dogwalkers and enjoy stunning views across Bideford Bay towards Lundy Island. The weather is still mild in autumn, but the beach is much quieter, so there’s loads of space for dogs and their owners to stretch their legs. The council’s rules on where dogs can be walked at Westward Ho! are lifted at the end of September, too, so you can explore the entire Blue Flag beach without worrying about straying into a restricted zone.

With the exception of dogs and horses, no other pets are permitted in the cottages.  We advise that you contact us on 01237 238 967 to discuss the availability of our dog friendly cottages and to receive a copy of our dog policy prior to booking your short break.
