Dog Friendly Accommodation in Devon
14 December 2018
We know that if you are a dog owner, going on holiday is difficult. Many hotels and campsites are not dog-friendly, plus kennels can be expensive and it may be hard to find a friend or relative who can look after your pet. If these are the problems you face every year, then you maybe interested to know that Cofton Holidays offer great dog friendly accommodation in Devon.
At Cofton Holidays, we cater especially for dogs and the surrounding area has a number of beaches, pubs and other attractions that are friendly to our canine friends. By holidaying with us, you can take away all the stress of finding accommodation for your pet.
Making your dog feel at home
At Cofton Holidays we have a choice of accommodation, all of which are dog-friendly. Whether you are camping, touring or staying in one of our holiday homes, we have excellent facilities on hand to make your dog’s stay as comfortable as possible.
If you stay in our Exe and Dart holiday homes, you will find that we provide your canine with a dog bowl, dog mat and a blanket. For all our guests there is a dog walking field adjacent to Cofton Church, allowing you to give the dog a bit of exercise and the chance to take a comfort break. If you run low on essentials, our site shop has a selection of dog food, toys and treats for you to stock up on.
New for 2019… our dog friendly cottages have been released on the Eastdon estate, nestled away next to 50acres of woodland and only a short walk from Dawlish warren beech… our cottages feature hard floors on the ground floor, dog bowls and blankets.
Getting out and about with your dog
There are many dog-friendly attractions within easy reach of the campsite, including beaches, pubs and walks. Dawlish Warren is two and half miles away and only takes a five minute drive to get to it (or a 45 minute walk if you want to stretch your legs). Dawlish Town beach is a little further along the coast (8 minutes by car, 45 minutes on foot). For those who really want to get out into the wild, why not take a trip to Dartmoor? There are many interesting walks for all the family, with stunning landscapes for the eyes to feast on.
What will it cost?
For touring and camping pitches, the cost of bringing a dog with you will vary. A charge is applied during high season, but it will cost you nothing to bring your dog in the low and mid seasons. For those of you who wish to stay in our superb Exe and Dart holiday homes or one of the dog friendly cottages, an additional supplement is required. However, there is no charge for bringing a registered assistance dog.
What we ask for in return
We welcome all dogs to our site, but we do ask for a couple of things in return. In interests of hygiene, we would prefer if you brought a poop-a-scoop and cleared up after your dog. We provide doggy bins for you to dispose of your dog waste and we have placed plenty of them around the site. Secondly, we also insist that all dogs must be kept on a lead while on the campsite for safety reasons.

Some of your kind words...
A brilliant stay as always. We stayed in a cottage this time which was beautiful and very well equipped. Lots of lovely little touches with a welcome hamper and lots of board games. Hubbie was well impressed with the huge TV too. Loved the courtyard and we were lucky enough to have the weather to BBQ 2 of the days. All the staff from reception to the shop to the entertainment were friendly and very accommodating of both my girls. Used the chippy which has recently changed hands and the food was still great. There is lots to do, loved the swimming, the zip wire, the park and walk in the woods and around the fishing lake. Have to be honest though we missed the caravan...... will definitely be back, hopefully in the Fernworthy van with the hot tub.
Had an amazing weeks holiday. The park was immaculate, the outdoor pool was spotless and the cleaning blocks were cleaned regularly. All the staff were very helpful and the shop on site was reasonably priced. We went with two kids (aged 6 and 7) and our dog, the kids were never bored and had an amazing holiday. We will definitely be returning next year!
My family and I stayed for 5 nights in July, aged between 13 and 40 and we all had a brilliant family stay. The teenagers loved the outdoor pool and the woods and we all loved the donkeys. I’ve been coming here since I was a child and it’s still got a lovely relaxing atmosphere and has all the facilities you could want for a camping holiday. I must say the fish and chip shop is the best we have ever had at a holiday park, reasonable prices and good sized portions. We have booked to come back again on 25th August for a week and can’t wait!
I visited when my relatives came over from Canada and fell in love. I was lucky enough to stay for a week last August for my sons 2nd birthday. It has got to be one of my favourite places to go. Absolutely beautiful, quiet, good facilities, lovely restaurants. The staff are outstanding. I can't wait to come back again this year!
Stayed in campervan for a weekend. Great campsite good location, plenty of things for all to do. Great fishing lakes all in a short walk through the woodland to the lovely Dawlish Warren and Dawlish. Couldn't fault.

I just want to say how impressed my fellow Motorhomers and Caravaners were with the welcome and service we received during our stay. Staff in the office were polite and helpful at all times. Scott the restaurant manager was most accommodating when I enquired about reserving space for 25 to 30 of us for lunch after a walk. The service in the restaurant was speedy the food hot and varied. We were very pleased with the standards. Staff in the restaurant were cheerful and polite and helped make our meal most enjoyable. We had such a good time that we will be returning again next year for our Xmas Rally.
The best holiday park we've been to in our motorhome. Our children aged 2 and 4 loved it. Great facilities, entertainment and activities in one of the best parts of Devon!
Delicious fish and chips, friendly and helpful staff and delightful woodland.

We usually camp 3 times a year and hire a caravan after the Christmas break at Cofton, and will continue to do so. We thoroughly recommend staying there. Great for families or just the 2 of you.
