Dogs are warmly welcomed at Blagdon Manor in Devon.

This boutique hotel is perhaps one of the most scenic dog friendly hotels in Devon, situated within 20 acres – 3 acres of gardens leading into 17 acres of open fields. The North Devon coast and Dartmoor are just a short car journey away and offer much longer walks for the keener dogs and owners.

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