At Salad Days we are dog friendly and we will accommodate your dog in a way befitting your best friend. Dunster Beach and Exmoor is the ideal place to holiday with your dog, many pubs and restaurants accommodate dogs and it is of course a fantastic area to go for those long and short walks. Situated on the West Somerset Coast Path and a short walk to the beginning of the South West Coast Path and the Steam Coast Trail, Dunster Beach offers a sandy beach for your dog to burn off some of that canine energy with both Minehead and Blue Anchor Bay just a 30 minute walk away. The Dunster Beach site is dog friendly with water bowls around the shop and dog waste bins aplenty. You and your dog can walk all around the site and nature reserve, but they do need to be on a lead, on the beach is a different matter, here they can run as free as they please below the tide line.
Dunster Beach is monitored by the Environment Agency, so we do ask that you 'bag it and bin it' if your dog toilets anywhere at Dunster Beach.
We are lucky to be only a short walk away from the South West Coast Path, why not use the interactive map on our Walk and Explore page to help plan your days out before you arrive.
We welcome well behaved dogs whether they be an assistance dog, your family pet or both. If you have more than one dog particularly if they are one of the larger breeds, we ask that you contact us before booking either by email or by using the 'contact us' form on the tariff page, to see if Salad Days can comfortably accommodate them. At Salad Days you will find a welcome basket for you and your dog. We provide a bucket and towel for those muddy paws, treats, a ball and throw stick, water and food bowls, biodegradable poop bags and holders, extendable leads and holiday tags as well as a selection of local maps.
Both front and back gardens are fully fenced and gated, the beach hut also has a stable door to the front.
We also provide an area to store your dog's travel items and a torch for those night time walks. On arrival you will find lots of useful information available for you and your dog in our 'Fun Stuff'' folder.
