    Why we love it

    A wooded estate to explore, an enclosed area for your four-legged scamp, hammocks and hot tub to luxuriate in and the whole of South Devon’s AONB on your doorstep

    What you'll love

    Dogs will love

    • Bounding through the woodland walk in search of whatever can be found
    • Getting rid of mucky paws in the dog wash area
    • Settling into their very own little bed

    Humans will love

    • Swinging in the afternoon breeze in the hammock
    • Drinks in the wood-fired hot tub
    • Letting their competitiveness get the best of them in the communal games barn

    The place

    Cedar Shepherd’s Lodge, much like her sister huts, presents just one problem. What to do first. Outside Cedar you’ll find a selection of distractions, a fire pit, a wood fired hot tub, a double hammock and nearby – a communal games barn! With a woodland walk that wraps around the estate, there’s a wonderful way to start your day, getting a stretch of the legs for you and your tiny companion, and at just a mile to the River Dart, and not much further to a number of beaches, there’s days out in abundance. Finish off a hard day’s hike, swim or paddle with something grilled on the BBQ, eat al fresco on the table outside, and take in the fresh air before pretending to debate a lengthy dip in the hot tub.

    In the neighbourhood

    • The Dartmouth Steam Railway, which runs nearby, is your chance to chug along on a piece of history. If your dog doesn’t mind the whistle and rattle, they can join you for the price of a £2 dog ticket. The steam network connects Dartmouth, Totnes, Paignton, Torquay, Brixham and Kingswear, and some routes allow you to “steam & cruise” going out by train and back by boat
    • Dartmoor is a fantastic place to explore even though dogs need to be kept on leads thanks to ground nesting birds, wild ponies and grazing livestock. There are informative, scenic and dog-friendly walks available through the company Moorland Guides
    • The Sportsman’s Arms, a short walk away at the end of the road, is very dog friendly, as is the Ferry Boat Inn in Dittisham, a mile and a half or so to the east
    • This being coastal Devon, there are plenty of beaches to choose from, but a local favourite for dogs is Strete Gate, which has no restrictions at any time of year, so the only private places you need to keep out of are those of the nudists who frequent the northern end
    • The National Trust property of Coleton Fishacre has a stunning garden that rights down to the coast. You can arrive the normal way, through the car park, or hike to it along the coastal path and up to the café for refreshment. Dogs need to be kept on leads and can’t go into the main house, but it’s still a lovely way to snuffle up an hour or two
    • Totnes is already a lovely town to pop into, but when the market’s on, it’s a must-see. The town square fills with stalls selling food and produce, the air with delicious smells. There’s no actual rule that your dog needs to be on a lead, but unless you want to wrestle it back out of the remains of a charcuterie stand, it might be a good idea.
