Pawsome news! We’re now welcoming your furry friends

Devon, with its stunning coastlines, picturesque villages, and vast moorlands, is a dog lover's paradise. If you're planning a getaway with your furry best friend, look no further than our fabulous self-catering cottages. We’re now welcoming dogs into all our cottages so you don’t need to leave them out of the family holiday.

Why Longbarn Holiday Cottages are the perfect choice for your dog-friendly holiday

  • Prime Location: Our idyllic setting in the peaceful hamlet of North Whilborough offers a tranquil escape while still being within easy reach of bustling towns like Torquay and Totnes.
  • Spacious Cottages: With a variety of sizes and layouts, we have the perfect cottage to suit your needs, whether you're a couple with a small dog or a larger family with multiple pups.
  • Outdoor Space: Each cottage features a private, enclosed garden where your dog can safely play and explore.
  • Welcome Pack for Dogs: We go the extra mile, providing a bed, bowls and treats for your dog so you can pack one less thing.
  • Dog-Friendly Attractions Nearby: From dog-friendly beaches to scenic walks, there's plenty to keep both you and your dog entertained in the area.


How to book your dog-friendly holiday cottages

When you book your cottage, all you have to do is let us know that you're bringing along your dog. We not only need to prepare for your arrival but also theirs - putting out dog beds, bowls and treat.

It costs £50 per dog per stay. While we love all dogs, we don’t currently accept puppies under the age of six months.

Extra tips for a paw-some holiday

Packing: While you don’t need to bring a bed or bowls, don’t forget their food and any necessary medication. If your dog gets anxious about going to new places, bring a favourite toy with you as this may make them feel more at home.

On the road: Just like us, dogs need a wee stop on a long journey. Some motorway services do have a dedicated dog area, but check before you stop. Sometimes, it’s better to go off the main motorways and find a picnic stop or roadside café with grass.

While on holiday in South Devon

Not all beaches are dog-friendly in the summer months, so check before you go. One of our favourites, not too far from the cottages, is Goodington North Beach, Paignton (below). When the tide is out, there is a large expanse of beach, plus the nearby park has lots of activities for everyone.

If you’re going into the countryside, it’s best to keep your dog on a lead, especially if livestock are nearby. On Dartmoor, for example, there will be certain areas where your your dog must be on a short, fixed lead between 1 March and 31 July.  

Devon is the perfect backdrop for an unforgettable holiday with your furry companion. With endless opportunities for adventure, your dog will be begging for a return visit. So, pack your bags, grab the leash, and get ready for a tail-wagging adventure in Devon!
