Out of respect for other holiday makers, dogs should not be allowed to roam free in the precincts of the bungalows, however there are great walks in the local area for you and your dog to enjoy,
Please feel free to enjoy walks around our estate, although we ask you to respect our other holiday makers and any animals / birds that are in the fields and woodland. From here it is possible to walk to Woolacombe (about 1 hour) or just potter through the woods.
There are some great walks on the cliff paths, in particular we’d recommend walking to Morte Point (near Mortehoe). The Ship Aground pub is a good refuelling spot and allows dogs inside.
Dog Friendly Beaches
Woolacombe and Saunton Sands beaches are both dog friendly on the left hand side. They are well signposted into 3 areas; Dogs off lead, dogs on lead and dog free.
Croyde Beach only allows dogs on the beach out of season (Oct – March).
Where ever you are, please could you pick up after your dog
Although thankfully not regularly, please be aware that the North Devon Journal periodically reports dogs that have fallen off the cliff paths into the seas or rocks below - not all with a happy ending.
Typically the dogs perhaps chase a bird or are just not being aware that the ground drops off.
Snake bites are also dangerous to dogs – there are sometimes snakes in Braunton Burrows or Woolacombe dunes. If your dog gets bitten please contact the vet immediately.
Ticks: Tick bites are not especially dangerous to dogs but have potential to cause disease in humans. Ticks latch onto animals and need to be removed with a small “tweezer type tool”. The local vets will have a tick remover should you need one – don’t just pull them out of the dog as parts could remain in the pet.
There are many vets in the area: we use the one is in Braunton:
