Your dog is part of your family, so when you book your beach holiday in North Devon, don’t let your dog miss out on all the fun! At Saunton Beach Villas, we welcome dogs with open arms all year round- we’ll even provide a dog bed! The beach Villas are located beside Saunton Sands Beach which is one of the few local beaches that accept dogs throughout the year.

Dog Friendly Beach all Year Round

Saunton Sands Beach is open for dog walking all year round. We expect all dog owners to be considerate to other beach users when walking on the beach and manage their dog responsibly. There are 3 zones for dogs:

They may be keen to get running on the beach, however in the interest of everyone’s safety, please ensure that you keep your dog on a lead whilst in the car park. The Beach Shop stocks doggy essentials and the café will happily provide drinking water. Dog bins and free waste bags are located throughout the site – please make sure that you pick up after your dog.

Don’t Forget!

Always pick up after your dog; if you’re caught leaving dog waste on the ground, you risk being fined. Your dog is your responsibility so please be considerate to the public and keep your dog controlled at all times.

Remember, it’s often easier for beaches to ban dogs altogether than deal with the problems caused by irresponsible owners. We politely ask that you do not abuse Saunton’s leniency for allowing dogs all year round and work with us to make the beach and car park a pleasant and enjoyable area for all users.
