Topsham dog-friendly cottages
Situated on the eastern banks of the River Exe, the historic maritime town of Topsham is a scenic place for a dog-friendly holiday as our self-catering accommodation is surrounded by beautiful countryside. Topsham is a peaceful location yet only 3 miles from Exeter city centre, so you get the best of both worlds in this part of Mid Devon. From our dog-friendly holiday cottages in Topsham, enjoy tranquil riverside walks along the Exe Estuary, which attracts wading birds throughout the year, although be careful not to wander out of bounds. Alternatively, take your canine companion on a ferry ride across the river to Topsham Lock for a delicious lunch in a pet-friendly pub or enjoy a mooch around the grounds at Powderham Castle.
Boisterous hounds can feel the sand between their paws with a trip to Dawlish Warren Beach. This important Devon ecological site welcomes canines all year round between groyne four and nine. The South West Coast Path also offers some wonderful coastal walkies for dogs of all abilities. The section between Dawlish and Dawlish Warren is an easy route on mainly level ground, while the Dawlish to Teignmouth railway walk offers steep inclines for dogs with bags of stamina. We have a variety of dog-friendly cottages in Topsham, and even more Devon cottages in the surrounding area, from cosy couples’ retreats to family holiday homes nestled on the banks of the Exe Estuary.
