With its unspoiled beaches, scenic walks, and pet-welcoming establishments, this charming seaside town has rightfully earned its reputation as a canine paradise.

Beaches for everyone

One of the main draws of Seaton for dog owners is its collection of dog-friendly beaches. The town boasts a long stretch of sandy shoreline, flanked by breathtaking cliffs and clear waters. Dogs are welcomed with open arms, and they can romp freely along the coast, chasing waves and fetching balls to their heart's content. Even in the height of summer, when many beaches impose strict dog restrictions, Seaton remains a haven for four-legged companions and their human counterparts.

  • Dogs are allowed at the two ends of Seaton Beach all year

Beyond the sandy shores, Seaton offers a variety of scenic walking routes that cater to dogs of all sizes and energy levels. The South West Coast Path, which runs through the town, provides an array of breathtaking hikes that lead to dramatic cliff-top views and hidden coves. On these adventures, dogs can explore the diverse flora and fauna that make the region a unique ecological treasure.

The welcoming atmosphere of Seaton extends to the local community, where many establishments proudly embrace furry patrons. From quaint cafes to traditional pubs, a multitude of places allow dogs indoors, providing water bowls and treats to make them feel right at home. This dog-friendly ethos creates an inviting environment for visitors who wish to enjoy a relaxing meal or a warm cup of tea without having to leave their loyal companions behind.
