We know that for many of us a holiday just isn’t a holiday without our much loved dog which is why Tree Top Escape welcomes one well behaved dog to stay in the luxury Tree Top Escape accommodation. We also welcome dogs to wedding ceremonies in the Nest (please inquire for more information).
If you are looking for a truly pet-friendly holiday in Devon, Millbrook is the place for you! We treat our doggy guests as part of the family, with as much respect and customer service as our human guests.
Our 32 acre estate is perfect for walking your dog. We have paths mown around the estate. Also a walk through the woods that is full of wonderful smells for your dog to explore and the meadows and the top lake area are great for your dog to run free.
We do have alpacas which have freedom to roam around the middle lake, but there are always acres of grounds for you and your dog to explore.

Dog bowls and food mats
