As dog owner's ourselves, we understand how important it is to ensure that you can include your furry friend in all the family fun. That's why we are so great to holiday with! We have a wide range of pet-friendly accommodation, from caravans, cabins, chalets and cottages so you can enjoy Woolacombe and its beautiful North Devon surroundings with your canine companion, right by your side. Or if camping and touring is your thing, we do that too!

As we are dog lovers here, you and your furry friend will receive an extremely warm welcome from check in, all the way through your holiday to the very end when you check out. 

Well-behaved furry friends are also welcome in our Clubhouse; all we ask is that they are kept on a lead at all times.

We want your furry friend to enjoy their holiday just as much as you do, so we have jam packed as much information as we can to help you plan your stay.

Don't forget to purchase your 'Doggy Welcome Pack' when booking which includes: dog blanket, collapsible dog bowl, rubber dog ball, doggy Dentastix, travel water bottle and doggy poo bags.

Dog Friendly Accommodation

To ensure you have a variety of accommodation to choose from, nearly all of our accommodation is dog friendly. After all, we want to make sure that your dog has the best accommodation to rest their paws after a hard day of exploring. 

To bring your furry friend, we charge £5 per night in accommodation (per dog), and if you are camping and touring we charge £2.75 per night (per dog). 2 dogs maximum please.

Dog friendly accommodation:

Please note: We must be informed if you intend on bringing along your dog to ensure that you are in a pet-friendly accommodation. Arrivals with a dog that we have not been informed of will not be permitted to stay in a pet-free accommodation.

Assistance Dogs: If you have a assistance dog, please inform us when you make your booking.
