Dogs at Coleton Fishacre

Your four-legged friends are very welcome in the garden at Coleton Fishacre. There is a designated dog route which takes in some of the best views in the garden, and with easy access to the South West Coast Path you could even branch off on a longer walk while you're here.

Dog route

The perimeter walk for dogs in the garden enjoys some of the best views of the coast from the garden, and leads along a recently levelled and widened path out to Scout Point, where you can take a break and enjoy the sea views.
From there the path leads down to the bottom of the garden, where you could go through the gate that leads to the coastal footpath. The dog route then follows the path in the garden up the centre walkway, or you could continue around the perimeter of the garden. The map you receive in reception has the dog walk highlighted on it.

Shady space

Through the archway next to the house is shady space complete with tethering rings and water bowls, where you can leave dogs while you look around the house. There are also benches here if you wish to wait with your dog. Please do keep an ear out while you look around the house in case your dog becomes unhappy and starts whining or barking, which can spoil the enjoyment of other visitors.

Useful information

  • Dogs are welcome at the outside tables of the café, and there are water bowls in the courtyard for thirsty pooches.
  • There is a dog waste bin located at the end of the café courtyard and the end of the dog route.
  • We request that dogs are kept on short leads at all times whilst at Coleton Fishacre.
