We recognise that leaving a valued family member with friends or in kennels when going on holiday isn't always an option, particularly in areas such as the South Hams where there are so many beautiful walks to be enjoyed...

As such, we WELCOME (as opposed to accept) a maximum of TWO dogs per room (certain rooms only) by prior arrangement at NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE. Better still... if your dog(s) can vouch for you, then you can come too!


Please note that you need to #BOOKDIRECT with ourselves to benefit from our 'dogs go free' policy. if you book via a third-party OTA [Online Travel Agent), a £7 per dog, per night fee will be added to your bill. We also don't accept dogs in all of our rooms, so it is essential that you pre-arrange this with us at the time of your booking to avoid disappointment.


Proudly owned by dogs ourselves, we try not to have many rules (we know that they require routine). We do however, ask:
  • All dogs are kept on lead/under control in the communal areas

  • Dogs are clean & dry (including paws) before taking them to your room. (We have an outside hose and provide towels etc. if required)

  • Dogs are not permitted in the breakfast room during the breakfast service. As long as they aren't destructive/won't get distressed left alone, they may be left in your room during breakfast, or you are welcome to dine with them in the garden/on the terrace. (During the evenings, they are welcome in both the breakfast room and adjoining conservatory/guest lounge).

  • If you wish to leave your dog(s) in your room at any other time except breakfast, please always check with us first. It's their holiday too, and a dog often isn't as comfortable being left alone in a strange place as some of their owners may think [not that we actually concede we are *strange*.] In the (hopefully) unlikely case of an emergency, it is also essential that we know if there are any unattended dogs on the premises.


where will my dog be welcome?
Dartmouth is exceptionally dog-friendly, and it would be easier to list where you and your dog wouldn't be welcome.
In Stoke Fleming alone you will be welcome at both the Green Dragon Pub and Radius 7 Restaurant. Out of season, Blackpool Sands and their Venus Café, is also extremely dog-friendly. The village also has a lovely large park where dogs are welcome and we are frankly spoilt for choice when it comes to spectacular coastal walks to explore in the area.

After you have made a reservation with us, look out for the invitation to download our digital guidebook. It works like any other app (and is even available offline) and contains a wealth of knowledge about the local area and where you and your dog will/won't be welcome.
