Your dog will love a cottage holiday in Cornwall
If you’ve ever taken your four-legged friend to visit the seaside, you’ll know just how excited they get at the sight of the sea. From miles of golden sand for digging, blue waters for splashing, and the occasional sea bird to chase, you’ll struggle to find a pooch who doesn’t see the British coast as their own adventure playground.
If you’re ready to treat your dog to the holiday of a lifetime, the South West of England is the perfect place. Cornwall is the UK’s tropical paradise. Home to above-average temperatures, below-average rainfall and some of the best dog-friendly beaches in the world, Cornwall is ready and waiting to give the Bahamas a run for its money.The best dog-friendly beach in Britain
We don’t think it’s possible to talk too much about Cornwall’s incredible coast. Home to 300 beaches, the county boasts more award-winning stretches of sand than anywhere else in the UK. Best of all, almost all of them welcome our four-legged friends.
While every one of Cornwall’s beautiful sandy beaches is a sight to behold, one stands out above the rest. In our professional opinion, Mawgan Porth is the best dog-friendly beach in the UK. Home a huge expanse of soft, golden sand that stays quiet even during peak tourist season, your pooch will have room to roam free.
What’s more, the water here is surprisingly warm, so you’ll have no excuse to join your dog for a dip in the sea. You also have to check out the restaurants that line the beach’s edge. After all, does anything pair better with the British coastline, than a hefty helping of fish and chips?World-class walking routes
Every dog owner knows that nothing gets our four-legged friends more excited than the word ‘walk’. It should come as no surprise that by offering so many world-class beaches, and hundreds of miles of stunning scenery with the South West Coast Path, that Cornwall is also home to some world-class walking routes.
Wherever you stay, you’re sure to be a stone’s throw from at least a dozen superb strolls. If you’re after a Dog Friendly Cottages favourite, however, we recommend the short, circular walk around Lantivet Bay. This dog-friendly route starts at the National Trust car park in Frogmore, before looping around the beautiful bays of Lantic, littered with romantic coves and magnificently bright, white sand.Incredible accommodation of every occasion

However wild your holiday in Cornwall dreams may be, we’re here to help them come true.
