Dog Friendly Cottages in Cornwall

Cornwall is a wonderful holiday destination for dog owners and their pets. With miles of walking trails, endless beaches to run on, and a great selection of dog friendly eateries, you and your four-legged friend will have a fabulous time! You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to walkies - there are so many walking trails throughout the county, with terrain for all abilities of human and all sizes of dog, from a Dachshund to a Great Dane!  

The South West Coast Path deserves a special mention - the Lonely Planet has selected it as one of the top 12 most awe-inspiring walks in the world, and Cornwall boasts 300 miles of this stunning route - almost half its total length. The associated sights, sounds and smells of this and many other walks will keep your best friend busy, not to mention nicely tired out by the end of the day.

Why should you be the only ones to lap up the sunny shores and spectacular scenery of the coast when he’s also dreaming of days filled with fun seaside activity? By choosing a Cornish Horizons pet friendly cottage as a base for your stay, you will also have the opportunity to choose from features such as swimming pools, wood burners or a location near to a beach.

Where in Cornwall do Cornish Horizons have dog-friendly cottages?

Cornish Horizons boasts pet friendly cottages in a variety of Cornish locations. From North Cornwall to South East Cornwall, Mid Cornwall and the far West of the county, our huge range includes dog-friendly apartments, barns, bungalows and farmhouses dotted amongst stunning seaside resorts, relaxing rural venues and enchanting riverside idylls.

Stay at a beautiful rural retreat in West Cornwall, where your dog will adore the surrounding countryside and nearby beaches across the Penwith peninsula. Experience the raw natural beauty of North Cornwall with a break in Padstow, or take advantage of The South West Coast Path along with acres of fantastic farmland in Morwenstow. Or holiday in South East Cornwall for a sand-between-your-toes escape in Portwrinkle, Polperro or Looe.

With hundreds of Cornish cottages scattered throughout the county, our mix of properties also include the magnificent Mid Cornwall area. From uber romantic, dog-friendly choices in St Tudy to cottages overlooking Newquay’s spectacular bay and accommodation boasting beautiful countryside surrounds (and superb wood burning stoves and open log fires) in Truro.

Are there many dog-friendly beaches in Cornwall?

There are dozens of dog friendly beaches in Cornwall. From large, family-friendly bays to concealed coves, rock-strewn sands and harbourside stretches - like you - your dog will be spoiled with places to run free and relax.

Dogs will be eager to explore North Cornwall’s variety of offerings, from Bude’s Bossiney Haven, Northcott Mouth, Duckpool Beach and Sandymouth Beach, to Padstow’s brilliantly named Booby’s Bay as well as its string of stunning shorelines that also feature Constantine, Daymer, Harlyn, Porthcothan and Treyarnon Bay, along with Trebarwith and Port Gaverne Beaches.

Tintagel’s Bossiney Haven, Benoath Cove, Tintagel Haven and Merlin’s Cove will leave both you and your dog rapt with the rugged scenery and soul-stirring views.

In West Cornwall, Hayle has three miles of beaches giving year-round access to dogs including Porthkidney, Beachview, Mexico Towans and Upton Towans, and in St Ives, there’s Bamaluz Beach.

In and around Penzance there’s a great selection such as Wherrytown, Long Rock, Prussia Cove and Porthleven Beach, while The Lizard peninsula is awash with beautiful dog-friendly beaches.

From Crantock to Holywell Bay Beach and Mawgan Porth to Watergate Bay, there’s oodles of sandy space for a wonderful waterside walk or day out in the Newquay area. Similarly, Falmouth caters for dogs courtesy of Carne, Hemmick, Pothboer and Nansidwell Beaches, along with the deliriously pretty, Porthluney Cove.

Can you give me some examples of dog friendly attractions in Cornwall?

Explore Cornwall’s huge array of gorgeous parks and gardens with your dog at a variety of spectacular sights. Top picks include Trebah, Trewithen, Trewiden, Enys, Trengwainton, Trelissick and Tremenheere Sculpture Gardens, along with Caerhayes Castle and Gardens and Port Eliot Estate and Gardens.

In Mid Cornwall, dogs are welcome at the Eden Project, Wheal Martyn Museum and Country Park and Carnglaze Caverns near St Austell. Falmouth’s iconic, St Mawes and Pendennis Castles are dog-friendly, as is Holywell Bay Fun Park in Newquay.

Meanwhile, North Cornwall is home to dog-friendly Tintagel Castle, Boscastle’s Museum of Witchcraft and the National Lobster Hatchery in Padstow.

In the west, Camborne’s mining centre at Heartlands, The Lizard’s Cornish Seal Sanctuary in Gweek and Penzance’s famous Newlyn Art Gallery and The Exchange all happily invite dogs to visit.

Take a train ride to see the sights with Bodmin and Wenford Steam Railway or Lappa Valley Steam Railway and bring along the furry ones for a fabulously fun day out.
