Cornwall’s coast and country landscapes are perfect for holidays with dogs. The region offers a wide range of pet friendly accommodation including an excellent choice of dog friendly hotels with private grounds and great locations near pooch friendly beaches. Stay in a dog friendly hotel in Looe with beautiful gardens or opt for a coastal ‘pets welcome’ hotel around St Agnes with spectacular coastal walking dotted with heritage mining remains.
Pet Friendly Hotels
Pet friendly hotels in Cornwall welcome all well trained four legged friends, usually one pet per hotel room (on some occasions two dogs will be permitted in rooms). A small additional charge per pet per night will usually apply in hotels. Many have welcomed dogs for years, and go that extra doggy mile, providing essentials such as bowls, blankets, food and some yummy pet treats! Hotel owners will also often supply useful lists or advice on local pet friendly restaurants, attractions and inns, and they’ll happily recommend the best local walks with dogs and give you tips on nearby year round and seasonal dog friendly beaches.
Cornwall Holidays with Dogs
Cornwall is a great destination for holidays with dogs. The region features miles of glorious coastal walking along the South West Coast Path, and inland along favourite trails like the Camel Trail and heritage mining trails like the Mineral Tramways Trail. From Newquay to Penzance and Bude to Fowey, you’ll find dog friendly hotels close to year round dog friendly beaches. Dogs are warmly welcomed in resorts and favourite family holiday areas like Newquay, St Austell Bay, Penzance, Hayle and Bude all of which offer a choice of dog friendly beaches either centrally situated or on the outskirts. Many nature reserves, Cornish castle attractions and famous gardens like the Lost Gardens of Heligan welcome well behaved dogs on leads. You can also take your dog on a lead into the outdoor gardens of the Eden Project for free!
