Boasting a plethora of year-round dog-friendly beaches, Padstow is an excellent destination for both two-legged and four-pawed members of the family whatever the weather. That said, if you are making your way to our beautiful corner of the world this summer, there’s something extra special for your pooch to look forward to.
