There are an abundance of interesting places to exercise your four-legged friends, from long stretching beaches to coastal paths and dog-friendly gardens.



Be aware of the dangers to your dog while out and about in the South West. The 2 most important being adders and poisonous beach substances.


Don't Forget

Make of checklist of all the items your dog will need. New surroundings may make your dog anxious, so their favourite toys and bedding from home will help them settle in to our pet friendly accommodation.


Poop Scoop

Remember to scoop your dog's poop! The South West is an unspoilt and clean corner of the UK, so let's keep it that way.



Always carry lots of water with you on your days out. Chances are you'll be doing more exercise than usual, so it's important to keep your dog hydrated.
