Dog Friendly Hotels

Published on

For so many guests, a break away is just not quite the same without the faithful pet. And of course, there’s no better place for a dog-friendly break than in North Devon. Whether it’s a short walk along the famous Tarka Trail, a run around one of Devon’s many dog-friendly beaches or a stroll along the South West Coast Path, there’s plenty to keep the dogs and owners entertained during a visit to the county. At the Brend Collection, we have a selection of dog friendly rooms available to pet owners in Bideford, Barnstaple and at Saunton Sands so you can enjoy a luxury escape with your canine by your side. 

Each hotel’s dog-friendly policies operate slightly differently, so please visit the hotel websites directly for more information.

Saunton Sands Hotel is the perfect place to stay if you're looking for a getaway by the beach and coastal path. When you stay in one of our self-catering apartments, Saunton Sands beach and the South West Coast Path will be right on your doorstep. 

Plus, our apartments offer a variety of room configurations, from budget-friendly two-bedroom apartments to more luxurious spacious ones, each apartment is equipped with all the modern amenities you need for a comfortable stay (and of course, you’ll still receive full access to all of the facilities available at our hotel). 

For dog-friendly dining during your stay, we recommended our sister restaurant, the Beachside Grill, where your pets can join you inside or on the balcony (booking advised).
