Thinking of bringing your dog on holiday in 2015? Coast & Country Cottages have a wonderful range of dog friendly holiday cottages in South Devon. This is just a small selection of the properties available to suit all requirements (of both the dogs, and their owners!)

For little dogs

Set in the peaceful hamlet of Netherton, Willow Studio (sleeps 2) is a fabulous studio apartment with contemporary furnishings – ideal accommodation for a couple and their small dog. The property accepts one pet and has a fabulous dog-walking paddock nearby, meaning there’s plenty of immediate space for your dog to stretch his legs. The Start Bay coastline is within a short drive, whilst the towns of Salcombe and Dartmouth are easily accessible.

For sea dogs

Ferrycot is a VisitEngland Four Star Gold awarded cottage in a stunning waterfront location, with views across the estuary to Salcombe – the perfect accommodation for dogs who like a little luxury! The cottage has been extensively refurbished in recent years to provide a high standard of accommodation for families of up to 9 people. The beach is within just a few steps, ideal for a walk on the sand, whilst the foot passenger ferry nearby provides quick and easy access to the picturesque sailing town of Salcombe.

For beach dogs

Like many humans, some dogs are happiest being on the beach! Why not choose the luxurious VisitEngland Five Star Gold awarded property Guillemot (sleeps 8) at Hallsands. This tastefully furnished property is finished to an exceptionally high standard, with stunning sea views. The dog-friendly shingle beach is within yards of the cottage – your dog can play fetch, and even enjoy a swim in the sea, before basking in the sunshine on the beautiful sunny terrace at the property.

For hot dogs!

Does your dog like being warm and cosy? Why not choose The Linhay, near historic Dartmouth – A very large and tastefully presented VisitEngland Five Star awarded barn conversion, sleeping up to 6, with lovely rural views. The barn has been fully refurbished in recent years yet retains many original features including cross beams and exposed stone walls. Enjoy long walks along the nearby South West Coast Path, before returning to The Linhay to relax by the wood burning stove.
