Pet-friendly holidays and accommodation in Bideford, Devon
Set on the scenic River Torridge, our dog-friendly accommodation in Bideford is perfectly positioned to take advantage of North Devon's stunning countryside and coastline. Retaining the character of a traditional port and market town, hounds can enjoy a scamper along the riverside, taking in the views, before stopping for a refreshing bowl of water in one of the dog-friendly pubs and cafes which line the Quay. The beautifully landscaped Victoria Park is a lovely place for an on-the-lead stroll or if your canine has energy to burn, let them bound across one of the nearby pet-friendly beaches.
Instow, Westward Ho!, Woolacombe, Putsborough, Croyde and Saunton Sands are all popular stretches of sand for pups to play on, many of them are dog-friendly all year round. There are also plenty of opportunities to join the South West Coast Path which takes in some incredible coastal scenery, or the 180-mile traffic-free Tarka Trail which traverses’ countryside, wooded river valleys, rugged moorland and dramatic sea cliffs. If you want to visit some local attractions, The Milky Way, Okehampton Castle and Broomhill Sculpture Gardens all allow dogs on leads within the grounds. After long days of exhilarating walkies, head back to one of our dog-friendly cottages in Bideford to snuggle up in front of the fire together with a well-earned cup of tea and a handful of dog biscuits.
