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 and one doggy in our Lake View.

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 or Lakeview:-

  • 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 accommodation
  • OS maps of North Devon (available in the office)
  • Emergency dog food supplies and/or a separate fridge for storage.
Doggy Day Out Pack (available on request):
  • Beach towels
  • Collapsible water bowls
  • Water bottles
  • Waterproof blanket for humans
  • Treats
We do make a small charge of £5 per night per doggy - this money is reinvested totally into cleaning to ensure The Wheel Room and Lakeview is always spotless. Please do not book or bring your dog is they are not socialable. We have livestock, children (our own) and a friendly labrador on site.

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 The Countryside Code, close all gates and keep dogs on a lead when near live stock.
