Things to Do in Devon with a Dog

Devon has long been known as a top dog friendly destination. Many of us have a pooch that we want to bring along for the holiday, and this is definitely possible in Devon. The county is all about the great outdoors, with so many attractions and activities actively welcoming dogs. Check out our dog friendly properties and book Your Devon Escape today.


One of the greatest things as a dog owner is seeing your pets joy as they play in the surf and waves. Good news: there are many beaches in Devon to take them to! Some have restrictions between May and October, but many are dog friendly throughout the year. With endless options to choose from, check out our blog post for the best dog friendly beaches and enjoy a fun day out with the pooch.


If you are looking for things to do in Devon with your dog, Dartmoor is the perfect place. Much of the moors is open access and you can walk your pooch in most areas. For those who prefer a set route, there are fantastic walks to suit every type of dog and their families, from easy flat walks to more challenging hikes. There are also several family attractions that will welcome your dog too! Our favourites include Canonteign Falls, Becky Falls, and River Dart Country Park. Be sure to visit Dartmoor on Your Devon Escape.


Dogs deserve to be part of the family day out too. There are many dog-friendly Devon attractions who openly welcome our adorable four-legged friends. You can take your pet pooch on many of our steam trains, trams, and boat cruises. Wander the grounds of stately homes and gardens. Check out our blog post for our favourite dog friendly attractions.

Eating Out

Devon is renowned for its restaurants, cafés, and local produce. Why shouldn’t your dog be able to join in the fun. Many allow dogs inside, and those that don’t often have alfresco dining. All dog friendly establishments provide water for your pooch, with many even offering treats and doggie ice cream!
