Why we love it

The great strand of Putsborough beach just half a mile away, great dog-friendly pubs, fabulous estate grounds to explore and cosy dog blankets to come home to.

What you'll love

Dogs will love

  • The two-mile long dog-friendly beach at Putsborough
  • Exploring the estate grounds with you
  • Being warmly welcomed to the King’s Arms

Humans will love

  • The giant chess, tennis court, croquet lawn and other entertainment on the estate
  • The cosiness of the mezzanine bedroom
  • Setting off on the coast path right from the door

The place

What used to be Pickwell Manor’s laundry house has been converted into this calming and casual bolthole, great for couples looking for a bit of quiet time. You can idle on the estate, where you’ll find croquet, tennis and giant chess as well as a fire pit space, or find adventure all around. Putsborough beach was voted The Times’ Best Beach in 2021 and is dog-friendly all year round, but others, such as Lee Bay, offer brilliant rockpooling or perfect picnic spots in echoing coves reached down old smuggler’s tracks at low tide. The ferry over to Lundy Island leaves from Ilfracombe and Exmoor, with its dramatic landscape and wild ponies, is just round the corner, but this is a great place to turn up, ditch the car and spend a few days on foot and in no hurry to get anywhere at all.

In the neighbourhood

  • The grounds themselves are home to tennis courts, giant chess, a games room and plenty more, including pigs, goats and chickens to visit (but not chase)
  • Your dog might not appreciate the art on show at Broomhill Sculpture Gardens, but they can snuffle round (on a lead) while you enjoy the range of pieces hidden among the foliage
  • The twin villages of Lynton and Lynmouth are a great base for hikes inland along the river and back down the coast path, as well as being joined by the famous cliff railway
  • The beaches at Croyde (dog-friendly October to April) and Woolacombe (some dog restrictions in summer) are both popular, but Saunton and Putsborough are dog-friendly all year round. All of them have easy access and parking
  • At Barricane Beach is the famous beach café that serves great Sri Lankan food that you can take down onto the sand to eat. A brilliant end to a day of sun and sea
  • Nearby Dunster Castle is a great dog-friendly day out, with not only the nature trails and scenery you’d expect at most National Trust places, but the chance to sample some great doggy ice cream!
