Flear Farm is Dog-Friendly primarily because we are family orientated and a dog is an important part of a family.
Well behaved dogs are welcome at our discretion and by prior arrangement. We are dog-friendly, but we do not allow excessively barky dogs, as it’s not fair on us or other dog owners, or the other families here.
Dog owners should ensure that dogs are kept on the lead when around the public spaces and to be diligent in picking-up after them. We are dog lovers – we want to stay dog lovers! You will find some great dog-friendly pubs and walks around us and lots of places in our valley and woodland to let the dog run so they won’t feel hard done by!
Additional cost of £25 per dog, per stay.
Dogs can be let loose in the valley with confidence (provided the dog is moderately obedient of course!). The Ponies, Abbie & Yara, are used to dogs, and there is no access to livestock in our valley. The walks by the stream and to our Duck Pond and Fishing Pond are a delight for dogs and their owners.
You will also find a wonderful walk into Flear Wood that is a real treat! Lots of smells and nooks and ancient paths make for a fun walk for all.
The following local beaches are Dog-Friendly all year round:
Mill Bay is a sensational National Trust Beach opposite Salcombe – a must at any time of year.
Bigbury-on-Sea (left-hand-side of the Slipway), is a beautiful sandy beach on the West Coast.
South Milton Sands is another lovely wide sandy beach on the West Coast, with an excellent Beach Cafe.
North Sands is a lovely little sandy bay in Salcombe, with fun food at The Winking Prawn opposite)
Finally, Street Gate is a pretty beach at the end of Start Bay on the East Coast, it’s sand and fine pebble, with beautiful views across Start Bay.
