Dog Friendly Cottages

Totally Dog Friendly

We know that for many of us a holiday just isn’t a holiday without our much loved doggys which is why we welcome up to two well behaved doggies in our 5 star Gold rated Wheel Room.

If you are looking for a truly pet-friendly holiday in Devon, Millbrook is the place for you! We treat our doggy guests as part of the family, with as much respect and customer service as our human guests.

Our 32 acre estate is perfect for walking your dog. We have paths mown around the estate. Also a walk through the woods that is full of wonderful smells for your dog to explore and the meadows and the top lake area are great for your dog to run free.

We do have alpacas which have freedom to roam around the middle lake, but there are always acres of grounds for you and your dog to explore.

To make your dogs stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible we provide the following to use during your stay in The Wheel Room:-

  • Dog bowls and food mats
  • Tennis ball and launcher
  • Doggy Pooh Bags
  • Vet Fleece dog bedding
  • Special Microfibre dog towels
  • Outside tap and brush for the really muddy characters.
  • A Guide to dog friendly walks, including along the coastal paths
  • A separate bin for the doggy poop bags.

On Request we can provide:-
  • A Dog crate in the Wheel Room
  • OS maps of North Devon (available in the office)
  • Emergency dog food supplies and/or a separate fridge for storage.
We do make a small charge of £5 per night per doggy - this money is reinvested totally into cleaning to ensure The Wheel Room is always spotless.

We don’t have rules at Millbrook we just ask you to respect the estate and people staying here we do ask all guests to follow the countryside code, close all gates and keep dogs on a lead when near live stock.

    Doggy Days Out North Devon

    With lots of places to explore here are a few lovely places to take your doggies.

    The Beach

    Most dogs love the beach and nearly all beaches in North Devon allow dogs in the Winter. During the Summer months you are restricted to certain areas on most beaches but Saunton Sands and Northam Burrows welcome dogs all year around.

    Gardens to Visit

    Pubs

    The Old George at High Bickington is just a 10 minute walk and accepts dogs, you will not be allowed in the restaurant but can eat in the bar. Please note that the pub is very popular and gets booked up in advance, you may want to reserve a table and mention you would like to book this in the bar. All other pubs in the area welcome dogs. (Unfortunately Weirmarsh Farm Restaurant and Mornas do not welcome dogs). For places to eat have a look at our local guide

    Organic Dog Food

    We are lucky to have High Hacknell organic farm in our neighbouring village where you can order Organic dog food and bones. All of their products can be fed to pets particularly bones, diced offal and trim. They can supply frozen pet food packs of 1kg each and bones. They make a delicious and nutritious addition to your pet’s diet, designed as a complimentary feed for those who like to make their own recipes. Contact Higher Hacknell via their website
