The perfect holiday break
for you and your dog in unspoilt Devon

Imagine a wildly romantic Grade 1 Elizabethan Manor set in 3,500 acres of one of Devon's finest country estates, close to the sea for long coastal walks, an idyllic setting for dog lovers. At Combe we welcome well-behaved dogs. Your dog is welcome in the sitting room, bar and in the great hall, where he can lounge in front of the open fire as you enjoy a relaxing drink or afternoon tea.

Devon is a perfect location for a short break with your dog. From October to March dogs are welcome on Devon’s beaches, beaches such as Exmouth, Budleigh Salterton, Sidmouth, Branscombe, Beer and Seaton, all within a short drive of Combe House. Or why not explore more of the famous Jurassic Coast by taking the South West coastal

path from Exmouth to Lyme Regis and Charmouth (for fossicking) - learn more

And if you don’t feel like moving too far away from Combe House don’t worry as below we have details of dog walks starting from the hotel.

Forgotten your four legged friend's bed? Don’t worry both at the hotel and our newly restored Combe Thatch Cottage (a romantic hideaway for two with its own secure walled garden, perfect for your dog to explore at the leisure in absolute safety) we can provide you with all the essentials to make your dog’s stay comfortable, from doggie beds to food and water bowls.

Local Dog Walks

Dog walks at Combe House, a dog friendly Hotel in Devon

Follow the RED route on this map to explore the countryside around Combe House with your dog. The walk takes just over 1 hour and is 4.5 miles long. It will lead you up past quaint farms, along country lanes and into the beautiful old beech woods of Combe Estate. If you have time to spare stop for a while in Gittisham, the charming thatched village where you can visit the Norman church of St Michaels.

Alternatively follow the BLUE route and you can lengthen the walk and venture towards Putts Corner where you can stop to rest at the ‘Hare & Hounds’, a country pub, before you return to Combe House.

The GREEN route extends your dog walk on to quiet lanes, just in case your four legged friend has a little spare energy! (45 mins approx – wellies recommended on rainy days )

All we ask is that you clean up your furry friend before coming back into the hotel, or cottage, as the Devon countryside is both beautiful and sometimes a little muddy.
