Dog friendly hotels in Paignton & Brixham

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

Many hotels on the English Riviera provide affordable, all year-round pet-friendly accommodation and will go that extra doggy mile to offer a warm welcome to you and your faithful companion.  Here are some dog friendly hotels in Paignton to take a closer look at:

Marine Hotel

This popular dog friendly hotel boasts one of the finest seafront locations in Paignton.  Lovingly restored, modern and comfortable rooms with patio access are available for visitors and their dogs and the hotel is conveniently situated next to Torbay Park, a delightful contained garden with well-maintained flower beds and plenty of green space to exercise your furry friend. The hotel is within easy walking distance of all local amenities including the train and bus stations, town centre shops, restaurants and bars. Whilst Fairy Cove, a red sand and shingle beach is nearby and welcomes responsible dog owners all year round.

Torbay Sands Hotel

Pamper your pooch with a stay at the waterfront-based Torbay Sands Hotel, within a stone’s throw of Preston, Paignton and Hollicombe beaches. Whilst these beaches are only accessible to dogs from October to April, the fantastic central location of the hotel means that you can leave the car behind and get out and about on foot very easily to explore the long seafront promenades, many local parks and stunning South West Coastal Path, which weaves its way around Devon’s Beautiful Bay.  The hotel has the charmingly decorated, Victory Tea Rooms and terrace area to enjoy the fantastic far reaching sea views and some tasty afternoon treats for you and your four-legged companion after a full day of outdoor adventure.

The English Riviera warmly welcomes well-trained, obedient dogs and their owners and with an increasing number of pubs, cafes, restaurants, attraction and accommodation providers opening their doors to our four-legged friends there’s never been a better time to visit. You’ll find a wealth of affordable, all year-round pet-friendly accommodation on offer. Here are a few dog-friendly hotels in Brixham:

The Quayside Hotel

The Quayside was formerly 6 fisherman’s cottages, and it has plenty of unique character and cosy charm.  With spectacular panoramic views over the quaint fishing harbour this is a perfect choice for walking, sightseeing or simply relaxing with man’s best friend at your  side. Shoalstone Beach, a popular spot with local dog walkers is very close by.

The hotel has 29 comfortable en-suite guest rooms and a cosy Main Mast bar and lounge area as well as an award-winning, fine dining restaurant serving the freshest fish and seafood caught daily from the local waters. This popular family-run hotel accepts visitors and their dogs and charges a very reasonable daily pet rate.

Churston Manor Hotel

On the outskirts of Brixham you’ll find the Churston Manor Hotel, a country house hotel set within 2 acres of idyllic and peaceful countryside in the village of Churston Ferrers. Well-behaved pets are welcome in the lounge and bar areas and selected hotel bedrooms. A charge per night per staying pet is made and as an extra treat for your pooch, pet meals can be made on request.

Whilst staying at the hotel, consider taking a trip to Greenway House and Gardens in the nearby village of Galmpton.  Greenway, now run by the National Trust, was once the holiday home of Agatha Christie and as an ardent dog lover herself, visitors with dogs on leads can explore the gardens and visit the café, where dog water bowls are available.

Berry Head Hotel

The Berry Head Hotel is a dog-friendly 3-star hotel set in a stunning, unrivalled position perched on the cliff and overlooking the whole of the bay. Small dogs are welcome to accompany guests by prior arrangement and a small daily charge applies.

The hotel is surrounded by 6 acres of grounds and is within easy walking distance of Berry Head Nature Reserve, a gateway site to the English Riviera’s designated UNESCO Global Geopark.  The site is free to enter and dogs on leads are welcome in the nature reserve as well as the award-winning Guardhouse Café.
