Dog Friendly Cottages in Padstow
Nestled in North Cornwall, on the South West Coast Path, Padstow is everything you hoped a rural fishing village would be. With green fields on one side and a bright blue ocean on the other, it’s quaint, quiet and quintessentially English. While the area is home to barely two and a half thousand people, it’s still renowned as a top holiday destination, and home to one of the world’s best selections of seafood.
Padstow is the perfect place to kick back and watch the gentle ebb and flow of harbour life unfold. Wake up early and take your four-legged friend for a walk down one of the beautiful sandy beaches, and you’ll see hand-painted fishing boats bringing in that day’s lunch. Stroll along the coast in the evening and you’ll be treated to a truly stunning sunset and a sea breeze guaranteed to melt your stress away. If you’re lucky, you may even see dolphins bobbing up to enjoy the view.The culinary capital of Cornwall
Every part of Cornwall is best at something. Newquay is unbeaten for its beaches and nowhere competes with St Ives when it comes to culture. But one thing’s for sure, Padstow is top of the board for dog-friendly restaurants. As a small but internationally famous fishing village reeling in some of the most delicious seafood, Padstow is something of a focal point for award-winning chefs.
Hosting dozens of the world’s finest culinary experts, over the last few decades, this popular destination has gradually become the seafood capital of the South West. If you only have time to visit one incredible restaurant during your dog-friendly holiday, we recommend Rick Stein’s. With a relaxed atmosphere that echoes the mood of the nearby beach, this is the eatery that launched the now world-famous chef’s career. And it’s certainly worth heading on down to find out why.Beautiful dog-friendly beaches
Of course, no trip to Cornwall would be complete without visiting at least one beautiful pet-friendly beach. Anyone who’s taken their four-legged friend down to the coast will know just how excited dogs get at the sight of the sea. Luckily, Padstow is home to plenty of stunning sandy spots that your pooch is welcome to enjoy year-round.
If you fancy taking to the water, we recommend heading to Constantine Bay. This dog-friendly stretch of golden sand is one of the best surfing spots in Cornwall, with waves that are rough enough to surf, but gentle enough that your pooch can safely join the fray. If you fancy a little more privacy, head to the slightly more secluded dunes of Treyarnon Bay./p>
