We’re known as a nation of dog lovers and the English Rivera is the perfect holiday destination for a break away with all members of the family, including the furry ones.

Many of our B&B providers offer affordable, all year-round pet-friendly accommodation and will go that extra doggy mile to offer a warm welcome to guests and their faithful companions.  Here are some dog friendly B&B's to stay in Paignton:

St Weonards Hotel

A stay at St Weonards Hotel will set your dog’s tail wagging. St Weonards is a pet-friendly establishment, ideally situated within the heart of Paignton and conveniently close to the town centre shops for all your doggy toys, pet food supplies and parlour treatments. Goodrington Sands (North Sands) is an all year-round dog-friendly beach which can be easily accessed from St Weonards, offering breath-taking coastal views along the way at Paignton Harbour and Roundham Head.  The hotel has everything that you need for a comfortable stay including well-equipped spacious rooms and free Wi-Fi. A cleaning charge applies at the end of the stay for guests with pets.

The Commodore

The Commodore offers comfortable and pleasant surroundings for dog lovers and a prominent seafront location convenient for accessing the dog-friendly beaches and local amenities. Fully trained and well-behaved dogs can accompany owners into the dining room during serving times, and a dog bag containing blankets, towels and bowls to use during the stay is provided.  Owners can use the water tap and hose outside the premises to wash down and dry their dog before entering, and this is especially useful after a day of exploring the beaches and woodland areas close by. The Commodore has a maximum 2 dogs in a room policy and a charge per dog per day applies.

St Edmunds Guest House

Dogs are accepted at St Edmunds with prior arrangement and they even get a special sausage treat for breakfast that they can enjoy on the porch or conservatory area.  Other than at mealtimes they can’t be left unsupervised in the guest rooms. Pets can stay for free during the holiday and the owners reserve the right to charge for the full cost of any damage or professional cleaning that may be necessary during or after a stay. There’s a sunny garden and patio which the dogs can use. Don’t forget to bring along your pooch’s favourite feeding bowls, bedding and toys to make them really feel at home during their break away with you.

Wentworth Guest House

Situated in the very popular district of Goodrington and close to the natural habitat of Youngs Park, Wentworth Guest House has one double room, located at ground floor and road level which is suitable for a small to medium sized, well-behaved dog and its owners. The room has its own front entrance giving easy and quick access, if needed to the park opposite. This is an ideal base to explore the dog-friendly beach at Goodrington Sands (North Sands) and the local nature reserve at Saltern Cove, an area made up of sand, shingle and rocks and designated a Site of Special Scientific Interest.

St Edmunds Guest House, Paignton Devon

Welcome to St Edmunds Guest House. Having taken over St Edmunds Guest House in December 2019, then being locked down for nearly 12 months in March 2020, Linda and Roger have spent all their  time refurbishing the interior and exterior of St Edmunds to a high standard, retaining some of the 1850’s charm and characteristics but using a modern twist, updating, painting, and replacing furniture, bedding and carpets throughout. We believe you don’t have to compromise on quality! We have seven comfortable rooms, a combination of single, double, twin and triple (double and single bed) all of which are en-suite. Ground floor rooms are available for guests with access difficulties – please ask when booking. Contractors are welcome (early breakfas

Your Home from Home by the Sea! Picture the scene... A leafy green park on a summers day, a glistening boating lake with elegant swans, live music drifting across the grassy areas scattered with colourful picnic blankets. Further on, the lush plants give way to rows of delightful beach huts lining the promenade and leading the way to vast, inviting sands and crystal clear waters. Above the gentle sound of the rippling waves you can make out the hoot of the magnificent steam train as it chugs passed. Fellow holiday makers relax on deckchairs while others frolic in the sea or build sand castles...in this moment where else would you rather be? We would love to make this your reality here at The Wentworth Guesthouse next to Goodrington Sands
