Dog Friendly Holidays, North Devon

Self Catering Holiday with your Dog

As dog owners ourselves, we understand the pleasure of dog walking and are pleased to offer 5 cottages that welcome pets. Spreacombe Estate has lots of dog friendly walks direct from your door, or if you can peel yourself away from the peace of Spreacombe there are numerous walks (gallops) in the area. 

Dog Friendly Holiday Cottages, Woolacombe, North Devon

Our dog friendly holiday cottages are less than 4 miles from Woolacombe, North Devon and positioned in a quiet valley with endless walks available.  We are very happy for you to bring your well behaved dog to stay in most of our self catering cottages*.

With the great walking around our estate and the wonderful long beaches that dogs love, many guests find that a break in North Devon wouldn't be complete without their canine friend.


*Note: Cottage No.5, (Clematis), is kept strictly pet-free.

Dog Friendly Beaches, Woolacombe Area

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. Woolcaombe has the additional benefit of a bridle path running parallel to the beach just inside the dunes 

Crow Point near to Braunton is quiet and offers an alternative walk with views to Instow and Westward Ho. 

Where ever you are, please could you pick up after your dog.

Dogs Welcome at this picnic

On the whole dogs are welcomed to our North Devon area.  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 Spreacombe it is possible to walk to Woolacombe (about 90 minutes) 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. We have a more comprehensive list of other places accepting dogs displayed on site, or if you have anny questions please ask us.


Dog Free Cottage

Note: to accommodate guest with allergies, Clematis (cottage number 5) is kept totally pet free. 

To allow all our guests to enjoy their stay, we ask that dogs are kept on a lead in the precincts of the bungalows. 

We have a limit of 2 dogs per cottage.

Many dogs get stressed left alone in a strange property where there may be other people around.    We ask that dogs are only left alone in the cottages by exception.
