The elegant property is perfect for a coastal getaway with your loved one and your favourite four-legged pal. Situated on the glorious English Riviera, you’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to long sandy beaches, quaint seaside towns and peaceful countryside walks to explore with the pup. Just over a mile away is the dog-friendly North Sands Beach, with its large expanse of golden sand and shallow waters that are perfect for paw paddling.

The light and airy apartment exudes glamour, thanks to its exquisite soft furnishings, original parquet flooring and grand marble fireplace. The accommodation occupies the lower ground floor of the owner’s beautiful coastal home, yet your privacy and seclusion are assured. Relax in the spacious lounge/kitchen/diner in front of the TV or curl up with a good book after a long walk with the hound. The contemporary kitchen and dining area is accessed via a couple of steps and features a stylish breakfast bar, where you can plan the day’s itinerary over a morning coffee. Outside, there’s a small bistro table with chairs providing somewhere to enjoy a relaxing glass of wine whilst Fido gets some fresh air.

For something a bit different, why not take a trip on the Dartmouth Steam Railway? The train chugs for 7 miles along the South Devon coast and into the beautiful Dart Valley. Four-legged passengers are welcome for a small fee, and you can hop on and off at some truly spectacular spots along the way. One of the stops is Greenway House, Agatha Christie’s former holiday home. Your furry companion can join you for a stroll around the grounds of the gorgeous house on the banks of the River Dart and there are also some great circular walks in the surrounding countryside.
