All of our properties welcome up to two dogs, so if you're bringing your four-legged friends to stay, here's a few of our top suggestions for walks and doggy days out.
It might not be the first place that springs to mind when you think about dogs, but actually Padstow is a really dog friendly spot, especially the beaches relatively close by. Hawkers Cove, Bedruthan Steps, Booby’s Bay, Constantine Bay and Harbour Cove allow dogs all year around and St George’s Cove allows dogs between October and Easter Day. There’s the very pretty Camel Estuary to explore too with lots of walks around the whole area.
Often known as a surfer’s destination, Polzeath is also a fabulous place to visit with your dog. Take a walk on the coastal paths that run in either direction – towards Daymer Bay and Rock one way and New Polzeath and Pentire Point in the other – to make the most of the stunning views and rugged cliffs. The beach itself allows dogs from the end of September through to Easter day.
The beaches at Rock and Daymer Bay at the head of the Camel Estuary are great spots to take your dog as they’re dog friendly all year around. The Camel Estuary itself is jam packed with pathways in this Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, and the dunes are pretty impressive to explore (and a good leg work out!). There are lots of places to eat and drink where your pooch will be welcome too.
Designated as a Heritage Coast Area, there are lots of fantastic walks along the coast and inland around the lovely fishing village Port Isaac. An interesting walk is from Port Isaac to the deserted village of Port Quin. The shingle beach here is dog-friendly all year around.
Situated on the rugged North Cornwall coast, Tintagel is extremely picturesque and you’ll be spoilt for walks with your dog. With dramatic views from the castle (which accepts dogs on leads) and with over 18 acres to explore with a garden, chapel, tunnel and well, you’ll have plenty to keep you occupied. Of course, you’ll also find the South West Coast path which will lead you off along the coast in either direction for more spectacular views.
