Picturesque sailing towns, stunning beaches and the Jurassic Coast
Discover the delights of Devon, Cornwall and Dorset on our fabulous dog-friendly road trip of the South West. You and your best furry friend will love exploring Dartmoor in Devon before continuing on to the picture-postcard villages, fabulous beaches and cream teas in Cornwall and then to Dorset’s wonderful Jurassic coast - all with bow wow appeal.
Let our expert Travel Concierge tailor a doggie road trip to your exact requirements, with wonderful dog-welcoming places to stay along the way, just for you and your best furry friend.
Cornwall is best anytime between Easter and mid-October. Devon is best in Spring to Autumn and Dorset - June to October. Although all are beautiful year round.
Best to avoid school holidays if you can when it feels like everyone in England has travelled to the same small Cornish village as you. Beaches are overcrowded, parking becomes a struggle.
Devon to Cornwall: 1 hour 30 minutes (86.5 mi)
Cornwall to Dorset: 3 hours (149.0 mi)
From £1,850 for two adults and one dog*
