A huge enclosed garden and a large enclosed courtyard with private enclosed parking mean you can open your car doors and let your dogs out without concern. A lovingly refurbished cottage full of character features and providing extensive space for guests, both indoors and out. 

We provide free Wi-Fi and TVs in every bedroom as well as indoor and outdoor games and a range of books. South facing private courtyard with the sound of our stream provides an ideal spot for summer barbecues and soaking up the sun. 

The stunning huge enclosed garden is perfect for children and dogs to play and explore. 

The extensive accommodation has a double aspect lounge with a wood burner for cosy winter nights, a separate adjoining dining room for enjoying great food and company, and a spacious kitchen breakfast room for casual dining and eating. Your dogs are welcome on all the sofas with your throws.

All four bedrooms are also generous in size and all enjoy views across the village to the church with window seats to sink in the views. We have 3 kingsize bedrooms and a twin with 2 full size twin beds, of course your dogs are welcome in all the bedrooms.

We provide two highchairs, travel cots, and a stair gate for guests with small children. 

Slapton Village has two food-serving, children and dog-welcoming pubs just half a mile from the spectacular 3 miles long all year round dog-friendly beach of Slapton Sands that curves around Start Bay and is backed by an extraordinary freshwater lagoon, Slapton Ley, a nature reserve. 

We have created an online guide for the house and local area all the beaches, walks, pubs, cafes, restaurants, activities, etc listed in it are all dog welcoming https://guide.touchstay.com/guest/bGT3QBFZuVpZj/

We have 3 large dogs and have been dog owners for nearly all our lives, no one shares the space at the house which is exclusively for our guests.
