Dog Friendly Cottages in Devon at The Old Shippon

As one of the most pet friendly holiday cottages in Devon, The Old Shippon has its own private entrance and large secure dog friendly garden.
Close by, our doggy guests and their owners also enjoy the benefit of 23 acres of private woodland which is securely fenced and you can walk without disturbance, just enjoying the many species of birds and butterflies you will encounter. This woodland adjoins the Dunsdon National Nature Reserve and is a haven for rare flora and fauna.

Pet Friendly Cottage in Devon

As dog owners ourselves we realise that your “best friend” needs to enjoy their holiday as well as you, we are pleased to be able to offer luxury pet friendly self catering in Devon. The North Devon countryside, along with the North Cornwall coast (only 6 miles away) offer a great place for you and your dog to explore.

Dog Pack

For your dog’s comfort we provide a dog pack, which includes:
Dog Bed
Dog Bowls
Dog Crate (Large)
Sofa Throws
Bucket & Brush for Washing

We accept two dogs and make an additional charge of £25.00 per dog, payable at time of booking. We only ask that dogs are kept of the furniture and beds (but have provided sofa throws, because we know what they can be like). We are happy for dogs to be left in the cottage, provided they are happy to be left and are in the secure indoor kennel we provide as part of the dog pack

Working Dog Holidays in Devon

For owners who require holiday accommodation for their working dogs, and would prefer to keep their dog outside of the accommodation, we have a number of suitable and secure barns and buildings (please enquire).

Walking Your Dog Locally

We have a securely fenced 23 acre woodland plantation, close by to The Old Shippon, where guests are welcome to walk their dogs, and offers plenty of opportunity to spot many of the rare and beautiful birds and butterflies found on our farm. 
Adjoining Dunsdon Farm is the Dunsdon National Nature Reserve (which welcomes dogs on leads), and within ½ mile both ways from the farm you can walk the Bude Canal or drive the short distance to the coast where you have the beautiful coastal path and beaches, or take a trip inland to the moors of Dartmoor (17 miles) and Bodmin (27miles). 

Also The Ruby Trail which crosses a lot of local dog friendly Forestry Commission Land.
