Dog Friendly Honiton

Nestled in the heart of the picturesque East Devon countryside, Honiton is a charming market town that warmly welcomes visitors and their four-legged friends. Renowned for its dog-friendly attitude and access to beautiful natural areas like Roundball Wood and Honiton Bottom, this quaint town offers a delightful escape for dog owners seeking outdoor adventures with their furry companions.

Great walks, with or without the dog!

Roundball Wood, situated just a stone's throw away from Honiton, is a hidden gem that attracts dog walkers and nature enthusiasts alike. This enchanting woodland boasts a network of well-maintained trails that wind through ancient trees, creating a peaceful haven for both dogs and their owners. With its diverse flora and fauna, Roundball Wood offers a sensory-rich experience for dogs to explore and engage with the natural world.

The wood's gentle terrain and clearly marked paths make it accessible to dogs of all sizes and ages, making it an ideal destination for family outings with pets. As dogs trot along the trails, they can relish the sights and scents of the surrounding environment while enjoying the freedom to stretch their legs and burn off some energy.

Beyond Roundball Wood lies Honiton Bottom, an expansive meadow that offers a different kind of outdoor experience for dogs. This vast green space provides plenty of room for dogs to run, play fetch, and socialize with other canine companions. The open meadows and rolling hills of Honiton Bottom offer a sense of freedom that city dogs often miss, making it a popular spot for off-leash play and picnics with the whole family.

In addition to these natural wonders, Honiton itself is a dog-friendly town with a variety of pet-welcoming establishments. From charming cafes with outdoor seating to traditional pubs that open their doors to furry patrons, there are plenty of options for dog owners to enjoy a meal or a drink while their pets rest comfortably by their side.
