We welcome your dogs too!

We love dogs here at the Hope & Anchor and we wouldn't want them to miss out on a little holiday too! 


We’re the ideal hound hideaway for dogs due to our fantastic location! There are some idylic walks in our local area and plenty of dog friendly beaches. Perfectly located just a stones throw away from Mouthwell Sands which is dog friendly out of season and long harbour beach which welcomes dogs all year round. That'll keep you happy and your four legged friends tail wagging for joy!


Your dog is welcome to join you in our bar and outside spaces but we do ask that you do not leave them in the room alone as it can sometimes be unsettling for them.


We want you and your best friend to be as comfortable as possible so we suggest, a maximum of 2 well behaved dogs, per room.


To ensure we allocate you the correct room please call us to book a dog friendly room. Dogs are charged an additional £10 per dog, per night.
