The beaches become dog friendly at the end of September through to Easter and there are plenty of dog friendly holiday cottages to stay in throughout the county.
Devon is a walkers’ paradise, which goes hand in hand with dog walking. The county is synonymous with Dartmoor, a metaphorical antonym for anything to do with shells and sandcastles, however it is merely a buffer between two magnificent coastlines of seashores.
North Devon boasts some of the longest, widest beaches in the country, whilst the south coast has family friendly surf. And at the end of September, several of them become dog friendly once again. Nearestbeach.co.uk has a good list of dog-friendly beaches and their restrictions. Or alternatively, where other people’s pets are not allowed!
There are plenty of places to stay with our dog friendly holiday cottages in Devon – if you usually take a holiday in a Dartmoor cottage with your pet, and then spend hours picking burrs and gorse out of fur, try going coastal - the sand will rinse off in a jiffy before plonking the pooch fireside to dry off!
It’s just a matter of choosing which side of the county – the quantity and quality of sand available with a holiday cottage in North Devon, or the plethora of safe and sandy beaches to play on whilst staying at a holiday cottage in South Devon. And all ideal for adventures with man’s best friend.
