Dog-friendly pub on Dartmoor

The Best Dog-Friendly Pub in Devon

With 365 square miles of moorland within the Dartmoor National Park it's no wonder that dogs and their owners alike flock to this corner of Devon on holiday. Whether it be a day exploring ancient woodlands or following bridleways and walking paths there are no shortage of doggy fun days to be had. Many of the cafés, pubs and restaurants on the moors are dog-friendly and only too happy to welcome dogs and most are no stranger to muddy paws and boots.

Dog-friendly rooms at Bearslake Inn

We are only to happy to have your four-pawed companions staying with us at Bearslake Inn. We have three dedicated dog-friendly rooms and many of our public areas are dog-friendly too.

We do however ask that:

  • All dogs are kept under control at all times
  • Dogs do not foul on the grass or in public areas (there is a dog waste bin at the end of the garden alongside the stream)
  • Dogs do not get onto the furniture or bedding
  • Any damaged caused by your dog is noted to a member of staff immediately and that any cleaning or repair charges are paid for in full before departure



Dogs on Dartmoor

Dogs are welcome on Dartmoor, however, although we are dog-friendly, we do ask that whilst dog owners are enjoying the moors that they adhere to the code of conducts set out by the national park.

  • Always control your dogs and keep them on a lead when around wildlife and moorland grazing animals(ponies, sheep and cattle)
  • During the lambing and bird breeding seasons please keep dogs on a short lead (1st March – 31st July)
  • Beware that if your dog is off the lead and harassing livestock, farmers have the right to shoot your dog to protect their livelihood (many do enforce this too!)
  • Please clear up after your dog and always remove and dispose of poo bags in dedicated bins or by taking it off of the national park grounds.
