Cornwall has one of the best dog-friendly beaches 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 along the South West Coast Path welcome our four-legged friends. While every one of Cornwall’s beautiful sandy and dog-friendly beaches is a sight to behold, one stands out above the rest. In our professional opinion, Mawgan Porth is one of the best dog-friendly beaches 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.
Cornwall has world-class walking routes
Every dog owner knows that nothing gets our four-legged friend more excited than the word ‘walk’. It should come as no surprise that, by offering so many world-class dog-friendly beaches, and hundreds of miles of stunning scenery with the South West Coast Path, Cornwall is also home to some world-class walking routes. If you’re after a Dog Friendly Cottages favourite, however, we recommend the short, coastal walks 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.
