In general Devon (and along the Jurassic Coast) is a very dog friendly place. However, as with everything there are exceptions. Below is a list of seaside areas that dogs are banned from between 1st May-30th September. Please see the East Devon website or the online good dog guide for more details. Each of our barns has a local OS map to help you plan any outings.
Branscombe (pebbly) beach:
Dogs are welcome to wander on the grassed area and some of the beach throughout the year. However, they are not allowed 150m east and west of the pole at the front of the café. This still leaves space for a good splash in the sea and a roam around the stream. The Sea Shanty cafe welcomes dogs.
Beer (pebbly) beach:
Dogs are not allowed below Charlies Yard in the east and extending in a westerly direction for 200 meters. Dogs must also be kept on a lead between Charlies Yard and the last beach hut in the east.
Seaton (pebbly) beach:
Dogs are not allowed from the boundary of the Parish of Seaton in the east to the end of the sea wall at Castle Hill in the west. This generally works out as the area along the sea wall.
Sidmouth (pebbly/sandy) beach:
Dogs are welcome on the beach just past the Jacobs Ladder area (you find this near to Connaught Gardens opposite the big old hotels going up the hill away from the town centre). They are not allowed on the beach between the eastern facing access ramp opposite Ham Lane (near to the life boat station) in the east to a point 100m west of the beach huts at Jacobs Ladder.
Exmouth (sandy) beach:
Dogs are not allowed between the second groyne before Orcombe Piont in the east to a point opposite the Octagon in the west. This still leaves plenty of stick throwing space further west!
Budleigh Salterton (pebbly) beach:
Dogs are not allowed on the beach from a point immediately opposite Lime Kiln in the east to the outfall opposite South Parade in the west. As with Exmouth, this still leaves good walking distance to the west.
