Dog Friendly Cottages In Cornwall

With rolling waves, golden sands and the calls of seagulls above, the beach is the perfect playground for your pup. Whether they're heading straight into the water or keeping their paws firmly in the sand, there's so much for our furry friends to enjoy.

So, care for a weekend by the coast? Then look no further than the South West of England. Cornwall, one of our favourite locations, is home to warm temperatures, world-heritage coastlines and some of the best dog-friendly beaches around. Who needs to jet off to the tropics when you can bring your dog to our very own paradise right here in the UK?

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

Far too often, booking breaks where your dog is welcome means sacrificing on quality. Well, with us, nothing could be further from the truth. We won't ever let our pet-friendly cottages fall short of perfection. Whatever splashes of luxury you need to turn your getaway from fine to fantastic, let us know. However wild your holiday in Cornwall dreams may be, we're here to help them come true.

Maybe you fancy staying in a rustic barn conversion or finding a holiday home with a spectacular sea view? If you're after a bit of romance, how does a private hot tub in an enclosed garden sound? Or if you and your pooch are after some sightseeing, we'll be sure to find you the perfect base for exploring Cornwall's most famous attractions.

Best dog-friendly beaches in Cornwall

Prussia Cove

Prussia Cove in West Cornwall is the perfect beach to let your pooch run wild. Small and secluded, you can easily keep an eye as they climb up rocks and splash in the sea. At low tide, watch as the water gives way to a smooth patch of golden white sand.

Crantock Beach

If you and your pup would rather some peace and quiet, opt for Crantock Beach. Although it was voted one of the country's best beaches, this sandy paradise in Newquay is still considered a hidden gem.

Fistral Beach

Known for its surfing scene, Fistral Beach is also a treat with dogs. Your pooch will be more than welcome to play on its golden sand, as well as follow you into boutiques, cafes and restaurants that are dotted along the promenade.

Trebarwith Strand

Popular with dog walkers, Trebarwith Strand is considered North Cornwall's premier beach. Full of rock pools to jump in and soft sand to roll on, this turf is the perfect spot to explore with your pooch. Watch as the tide backs away and uncovers high cliffs and deep caves.

Helford Passage Beach

For boat lovers, make the most of Helford Passage BeachHelford Passage Beach. Located in the Falmouth in South Cornwall, this small shingle beach is a great day out with a furry friend. Sit by the 300 hundred-year-old Ferry Boat Inn and watch your dog play safely yards away.

Best coastal walks in Cornwall

Portreath to Hayle

From Portreath, this trail will take you up the tops of cliffs, along dramatic coastlines and through to hidden coves and beaches. The best bit of all is the sight of Godrevy lighthouse and the many seals that surround it.

Mousehole to Lamorna Cove

Starting in the picturesque fishing village of Mousehole, make your way to the South West Coast Path. Pass rugged cliffs and overexposed fields until you reach a wooded nature reserve in Lamorna Cove.

Porthleven to Lizard Point

One of our favourite coastal walks, starting from the sleepy village of Porthleven, make your way to the Loe. Here you can enjoy the largest body of freshwater in Cornwall. When you finally reach Lizard Point, you'll be met with history and stunning scenery.

St Ives to Zennor

An enduring but certainly rewarding coastal walk is the St Ives to Zennor trail. You and your pooch will need a steady step as you depart from Porthmeor beach in St Ives to the rocky Man's Head. Marvel seals from a distance at Seal Island and once you reach Zennor, treat yourself to a well-deserved drink

Tintagel to Boscastle

This route not only offers spectacular views from Tintagel castle to Boscastle but lots of history for any budding history buffs. Starting from King Arthur's birthplace, make your way north, passing rock islets and seabird colonies.
