Working Dog Holidays in Devon


What to do with your dog’s when you go on holiday is a dilemma for most owners, whether your dogs are working dogs or household pets. You can place the dogs in boarding kennels, employ a house sitter, or accommodation allowing, take them with you !.

At The Old Shippon, we are happy to accommodate dogs, and for well behaved house dogs (two maximum) they can share the property. We provide indoor kennels that you can use for the duration of your stay.

On the farm and close to the cottage, we also have a number of dry, secure buildings that can accommodate dogs which are used to living outside, ie. gun dogs, police and security dogs and companion dogs.

Exercising Your Dog

On the Farm we have a young native woodland plantation totalling 23 acres, with large open rides that is deer fenced and provides an ideal and secure area to exercise your dogs, or close by you can walk the Bude canal.

The Old Shippon at Dunsdon Farm, is the ideal dog friendly self catering cottage in Devon to base your holiday.
