Pets in holiday properties

Bringing a pet on holiday

A large proportion of our holiday cottages welcome well behaved pets. If you are planning on bringing a dog, cat, tortoise or rabbit, search for pet friendly properties on our website and you will be offered a list of properties that welcome your family pet.

On each property page you will find a section with 'at a glance' information on the rating, facilities and accommodation on offer. This section will advise you whether the property welcomes a pet. Assistance dogs are allowed in all properties, even where the property description states that pets are not allowed. You should bear this in mind if you have pet allergies.

More information

There is often a small charge for bringing a pet with you, and this is noted in the accommodation section or you will be advised at the time of booking.  Some owners welcome pets free of charge.

To ensure that you, your pet and future guests enjoy their stay we ask you to adhere to some golden rules whilst on holiday with your pet.

  • Please keep your pet(s) out of bedrooms and off the furniture.
  • Please do not leave any pet(s) alone in the cottage.
  • Please respect others in the area and clean up after your pet.
  • Devon is a rural county and it is important that if you are staying in the countryside that you dog is under control around any livestock.

As a rule, a maximum of two pets are allowed in each cottage, but some owners will only accept one. Similarly, some owners will consider taking more.

Dog friendly Devon – out and about

Devon is an incredibly dog friendly county with many year round dog friendly beaches and miles and miles of bridleways and walks for you to explore with your dog.  Some main beaches are not dog friendly between April and October, however we can advise you on these if you need to know.  Dartmoor and Exmoor are perfect places to explore with your dog, however always be aware that there are often livestock grazing and all dogs should be under control around livestock.  Many rural pubs and often some restaurants welcome dogs, so if you need a hand planning your day out, why not contact one of the team and we will be delighted to help.

Holiday Cottage Gardens

Not all gardens will be fully enclosed, and we will note this in the property description.  Whilst a garden might be enclosed it is not necessarily escape proof. If you have any particular questions regarding the suitability of any property or garden please simply give us a call and we will be delighted to help - 01326 573808.
