10. What do guests do with their dogs whilst they eat in the restaurant?
A. You’re free to leave your dog in your room or some guests prefer to keep their dog in their car during meal times. We do have a doggie crate to borrow, if you prefer your dog to stay in it, in the bedroom whist you dine, just inform Liz when you make your booking.

And finally....although we love dogs we ask you to be aware that not all of our guests staying will have dogs, so please can you ensure that in the public areas your dogs are always under control, not allowed to wander into the Restaurant/Kitchen or upset other guests. And as in any hotel, dogs are not allowed on the furniture and if on the rare occasion any damage occurred this would need to be paid for.

“...we and the dog got 5 star treatment. Rooms were great and the food fantastic. Superb value”


Can't fault anything from delicious meals to immaculate room and thoughtful service.

Enjoyed it more than my stay at the Dorchester

Thought of everything! I stayed for just one night on my way to the North Cornwall coast...

Heaven in Devon – Liz & Steve have achieved the almost impossible balance of providing high quality accommodation for both dogs and their owners.

If you’re searching for a stay in a quintessential English country hotel in a stunning location, charming owners and staff...

If I could choose only one place to eat Sunday Lunch, Blagdon would be the place.

The perfect, cosy, hideaway and fantastic veggie food. Amazing!

Exceptional attention to detail and every possible need is catered for. The restaurant menu was irresistible and service faultless.
