BRINGING YOUR DOG
THE DOG FRIENDLY DOLPHIN!
We LOVE dogs here at The Dolphin Hotel, and you can be sure that your four legged friend will receive a warm welcome! We have dog friendly rooms and dogs are welcome to join you to drink and dine in our Port Lounge and Starboard Lounge bars. Our location here in East Devon is a haven for beautiful dog walks, dog friendly beaches, bars and eateries for a getaway that you and your dog can enjoy together. We have included our top tips for you and your pooch to get the most out of your break at The Dolphin below.
Just a stones throw form our front door, the east side of Beer beach is dog friendly all year round and is a great space for your dog to run around and cool off with a splash in the sea. The South West Coast Path lies just a hundred metres from the Dolphin, and provides spectacular cliff top views for you and your dog to enjoy. They are permitted on the entire path, and providing that you look after them in a responsible way to avoid disturbing livestock and wildlife or causing a nuisance to other walkers, you will be welcomed.
