A traditional stone cottage that throws caution to the wind with sleek, contemporary interiors, this one-bed North Devon retreat has it all. In the heart of Braunton village, it is ideally located for you and your two fluffy pals to explore the area’s soaring dunes, sprawling countryside and local dog-friendly amenities, whilst also affording space and privacy to cuddle up quietly at home. So, whether you are indulging your dogs in fast-paced walks or giving into another round of ear scratches back at the ranch, you are all sure to relish every moment.

The ideal cottage for solo breaks or couples’ retreats with the dogs, this stylish accommodation boasts quirky upside-down vibes with the bedroom on the ground floor and the living areas on the first. Ease out of the king-size bed and start your day with sugar-coated pastries at the kitchen’s breakfast bar, before taking your coffee outside in the courtyard. For evenings in, the well-equipped, open-plan kitchen/diner provides everything for meals at home, before rotating to the adjoining lounge for a film curled up on the sofa.

If your canine chums are the super energetic kind, a walk, jog or cycle along the nearby Tarka Trail will be a great way to burn off some steam whilst enjoying superb views as you go. Another day, head to nearby Saunton beach (2 miles), where the sprawling expanse of golden sand is open to dogs year-round for tail-wagging shoreside fun. If your wet-nosed friends are refined senior citizens, they will certainly enjoy visiting both Braunton and Barnstaple’s (6 miles) dog-friendly eateries, especially if there’s a chip or two going spare!

Regrettably, this one wasnt for us. We found the upside down configuration challenging, and the living space very small. Due to small windows, the interior was quite dark, and the furniture not very comfortable. The very large tv was very close to the viewing position, which could be uncomfortable.
