Pet-friendly holidays and accommodation in Dawlish, Devon
Situated on the western shores of the estuary of the River Exe, the South Devon seaside town of Dawlish is characterised by its bird reserves, mudflats and one of the most beautiful stretches of coastal railway in Europe. Best of all, it is jam-packed with dog-friendly attractions so every human and their best friend can enjoy a fun trip. Dog-friendly holidays in Dawlish are perfect for pups who like to feel the sand between their paws with two tail-wagging beaches to choose from; Dawlish Town Beach has seasonal restrictions for dogs, while Dawlish Warren Beach welcomes canines year-round between groyne four and nine.
From our dog-friendly accommodation in Dawlish walkies can be enjoyed in the Dawlish Countryside Park which features 65 acres of open space and woodland to sniff out, or you and your furry pal could jump in the car and head to the rural village of Mamhead where there are a variety of woodland trails to explore including the Mamhead Sensory Trail, which is actually part of Haldon Forest Park. The Exe Estuary and Dawlish Warren Nature and Wildlife Reserve are also scenic spots for on-the-lead walks and popular with birdwatchers.
For a refreshing amble along the South Devon coast, join the South West Coast Path – the section between Dawlish and Dawlish Warren is an easy, mainly flat route or for those with energetic hounds, the Dawlish to Teignmouth section offers plenty of heart-pumping inclines. We have a variety of dog-friendly cottages in Dawlish Warren, from romantic coastal retreats for two, to large inland properties for group getaways, taking advantage of the rolling countryside that Devon has to offer.
