We are back again this week with our dog-friendly beaches winter edition but this week we are focusing on South Devon. South Devon is a stunning part of the county which combines expansive green countryside, picturesque beaches and quaint villages. Taking your canine companion with you to enjoy the trip is one of the benefits of going on holiday in the UK. Because so many of us enjoy taking our dog on holiday with us we wanted to showcase the dog-friendly beaches you can visit this winter in South Devon.
|Soar Mill Cove, near Salcombe||A remote sandy cove that is only accessible via a South West Coast Footpath which means your dog gets a good walk along country paths before descending down to the freedom of the beach.|
|South Milton Sands, Thurlestone||This is a National Trust beach that boasts a long sandy stretch which is perfect for walking the dog.|
