Dog-friendly holidays on the Devon coast
Sea, sand and (hopefully) sunshine often make the best holidays, especially when you’ve got your four-legged friend by your side. Even in more inclement weather they can make a windy walk by the ocean all that more enjoyable, which is handy when over 250 miles of the South West Coast Path lines Devon to the north and south! The Devon coast has to be one of our favourite dog-friendly holiday destinations, with a variety of experiences and places to visit that you're bound to fall in love with - see our guide to find out why Devon is so dog-friendly.
