Our Focus

Westleigh is a Dog Friendly Bed and Breakfast with a Difference

Westleigh is run by Etta, who has been in charge for nearly 10 years, she is the proud owner of a young and very lively pug.

Etta is a fully trained cook who previously ran a highly successful outside catering business including cooking for director’s lunches.

She is a tremendous dog lover and has always had them ranging from several Newfoundlands to lots of Pugs!

Etta is also a great admirer of the Devon countryside and is especially knowledgeable about the good places to walk in and around the area.

Here at Westleigh you have the pleasure of enjoying a very special meal cooked by Etta and served in the conservatory having previously chosen from our locally sourced (and homemade where possible) list of suggestions given. (meals must be pre booked 24 hours in advance in order to get the fresh ingredients needed)

If you would like a little extra waiting for you on arrival we can offer cream teas served in the sitting room at a small charge.

To book a room, please call us and we'll take a card payment over the phone to complete your reservation.

Westleigh is a Dog Friendly Bed & Breakfast

Westleigh is a truly dog friendly bed & breakfast.

In addition Westleigh is well equipped with a dog bath, blasters, foot scrubs, leads & lots of towels not to mention dog food, bowls treats & toys, in fact just about everything to ensure a perfect stay. Westleigh itself is a 120 year old cottage that has recently undergone a complete modernisation. It has central heating & double glazing throughout and both bedrooms are carpeted. Aga cooked breakfasts & dinners of your choice are prepared in the recently re-furbished kitchen by Etta herself. The beach is a 2 minute walk away from Westleigh & many other dog friendly places in East Devon are close by.
