Backed by striking red sandstone cliffs, the coastal town of Sidmouth in Devon is a scenic destination for a dog-friendly holiday. While dogs are only allowed on Sidmouth’s main beach between October and May, they can run free all year round on a small designated section at the east end of the beach. Along the seafront is the Millennium Walkway, which stretches the length of the beach, while the town’s Connaught Gardens provide a pretty backdrop for an afternoon stroll. Whether you’re looking to stay in a modern converted barn or spacious detached property close to the beach, we have a variety of dog-friendly cottages in Sidmouth to choose from that are perfect for couples, families or groups of friends.
From our Sidmouth cottages, stride out along the South West Coast Path, which passes the beautiful Ladram Bay and down towards Budleigh Salterton, the western start of the Jurassic Coast.
