Dog-friendly B&B Delights in the Heart of Devon


Many readers of our articles will be aware that Gilbertson & Page has long been owned by the Ware family, with several family members being well-known faces in canine circles. What’s less well appreciated is that there’s another, distinctly dog-focused, side to the family’s activities in the shape of Westleigh, a rather special Bed & Breakfast in Beer, Devon.

Like the dog food business, there are currently two generations of the family involved in Westleigh, with Etty being personally responsible for providing exceptional meals from her events and private dining business (she’s Cordon Bleu trained).

The most distinctive feature of Westleigh is that the creature comforts (check out the 5* ratings on TripAdvisor) extend to your canine companion. This includes a hearty welcome and free dog food throughout your stay (no prizes for guessing who’s food it is!).

Westleigh provides dog-lovers with the perfect ‘get-away-from-it-all’ location with its combination of relaxed comfort and a spectacular position on the Jurassic coast. The East Devon Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty surrounds Beer and Lyme Regis, Honiton and Sidmouth are close by. making it an excellent base for exploring this fabulous part of Britain’s coastline.
