Home to spectacular coastline, breathtaking views, beautiful woodland and stunning countryside, South Devon is a special place for a walking holiday. Come rain or shine there are plenty of walks in South Devon for all the family to enjoy, including your four-legged friend, that’s why we offer a collection of dog-friendly cottages near the South West Coast Path.

For the experienced hikers and keen explorers, tackle a new challenge. For couples with their dog, discover new areas of South Devon. For families with excited children, burn off some energy. Whatever your end goal, the walks along the South West Coast Path, through rugged rural landscapes, or traversing overgrown bridleways and footpaths, bring rewards in abundance!

If you are looking for inspiration on your next walk, look no further than our walker’s blogs, dedicated to helping you navigate South Devon on foot. Enjoy tips on fantastic eateries (making great pit-stops for long walks), advice on wildlife to spot, and even information on rarely found secret coves.
