Cornwall is the perfect holiday destination for those looking to get away with their four-legged companions. With dog friendly beaches, miles upon miles of coastal paths, world heritage sites, subtropical gardens and those all-important wide open spaces for stick throwing – there are plenty of things to do in Cornwall with your dog.
Understanding that your canine needs a holiday too, many of Cornwall’s best hotels are dog friendly, offering everything a pampered pooch could need.
At The Headland Hotel dogs are welcome in both the 4* hotel and 5* cottages and provided with bowls, blankets and yummy treats. The famous Fistral beach, just minutes from the hotel, is also dog friendly all year round making it the perfect place for lazy afternoon strolls.
The Greenbank Hotel has eight beautiful dog friendly rooms. The Greenbank Gardens are just outside, perfect for an early morning leg stretch and it’s only a short stroll to the fascinating town and beaches of Falmouth – where you’ll find great restaurants, shops and bars.
Set in gorgeous gardens and opposite Gyllyngvase beach, the St Michael’s Hotel and Spa is hound heaven - with dogs welcome in both the Captain’s House and throughout the grounds. The surrounding beaches of Falmouth are all dog friendly between October and Easter.
