Dog-friendly camping in Devon guide


Known for charming villages, fossil-rich coastlines, and expansive moorlands, Devon provides many pet-friendly camping opportunities in South West England for the whole family. Much of Dartmoor National Park’s moorlands, working farms, and archaeological sites are open to four-legged family members. However, the park requires dogs to stay on lead near livestock, during lambing and nesting season (1 March–31 July) and in warm weather. Campers and their pets can stay in one of the park’s campsites, which typically feature showers, flush toilets, and launderettes. At the southern end of Devon, South Devon Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a hiker’s dream with trails that take campers through farmland, coastlines, estuaries, scenic countrysides, and to notable landmarks like Dartmouth Castle and Compass Cove. South Devon has many dog-friendly beaches, though some do not permit dogs during summer months. Instow Beach, Saunton Sands, and Soar Mill Cove are all lovely beaches to take your pooch, provided you have poo bags in tow. The area’s pet-friendly camping spots provide parks and walks where dogs can run free next to meandering streams for quick cool downs. From Dartmoor to ExeterPlymouth to Torquay, some of the UK's most popular and prettiest towns and cities can be found in this county.
