This property is in a secluded setting on the edge of the owners’ garden and working small-holding; the coast is just a short drive away, a perfect base for couples looking to explore and relax.
For couples and their canine companions, this cosy studio-style lodge offers a rural hideaway in the Ashcombe Valley. The traditional seaside town of Dawlish (2 miles) has a dog-friendly beach for shoreline strolls and a large green, The Lawn, for picnics and walks among the flower beds. Step onto the South West Coast Path for a day walking along the stunning coastline and discovering quiet coves where you can cool your paws. Head inland to discover the Dartmoor National Park (22 miles) where there are trails through the peaceful landscape to be sniffed out.
Tails will wag as you approach your romantic retreat through the pretty garden and step into the open-plan interior. Your light and airy open-plan living space means your pup is never far from your side, whether you are relaxing on the sofa after a long day of walking or cooking up a storm in the well-designed kitchen area. Your hound can warm their paws in front of the cosy wood burner. When it’s time for bed, snuggle your pup in their favourite blanket before climbing in your comfortable double bed and drifting off to sleep to the sound of the stream outside. Stepping outside, enjoy BBQs on your private decked area looking out over the neighbouring fields as your hound snoozes on the lawn.
Explore the beautiful nature reserve at Dawlish Warren (2 miles) where you can doggy paddle in the clear waters and enjoy long walks along the beach all year round. Follow the trails along the grassland and mudflats spotting wildlife, before seeking refreshments in the nearby dog-friendly pub and cafes. Take the lead along Little Haldon Heaths (3 miles) where you can seek out the Postman’s Path and enjoy long rambles along the heath.
Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
