Dog Friendly Holidays in Devon

Doggy Delightful Devon

Beach and walking holidays are not just for humans, dogs love them to!  At Westward Living we are spoilt for choice with open space and interesting walks for dogs and their owners to enjoy together.  The glorious beach at Westward Ho! offers a vast sandy expanse of fun for your four legged loved one to explore and dip their paws.  Dogs are welcome on Westward Ho! beach all year round however in the main summer season May to September they need to access the beach from the burrows not the main slip way.  There are plenty of dog friendly beaches to enjoy near us including fabulous Instow beach which is packed with sand dunes that are great for rolling around in.


Visiting dog friendly places to eat.

Here at Westward Living, we are spoilt for choice of great places to enjoy a meal with your four-legged buddy.  Once of our favourite places to take the dog for a bite to eat is The Pig on the Beach.  This beachfront restaurant and bar is about a 20-25 min walk from your cottage along our private access onto the South West Coastal Footpath.  You and your dog will pass all the fabulous rock pools on the way to the village.  The Pig on the Beach is in the centre of Westward Ho! it’s dog friendly and has excellent views. All the local villages will have dog friendly establishments as holidaying with your dog is now seen as a way of life.

We loved our stay, the cottage has stylish decor and furnishings and its right on the South West Coastal footpath with wonderful views, great for early morning and late evening walks to see the sunrise and sunset.
