With stunning coastlines and some of the best of the Cornish countryside, our dog-friendly cottages in Saltash are well positioned for dogs and their owners to enjoy some excellent walks, fascinating attractions and some tail-wagging places to eat!
If you want to experience the wild and beautiful wonder of Cornwall, pop in your car and drive to Millbrook, near Torpoint. Just 30 minutes away, you’ll find expansive sands and the occasional cliff-side cave, with some superb cafés close by. Alternatively, for something more secluded head to Portwrinkle Beach, where you’ll find a small, Cornish cove with more than enough space for a good run-around.
When it comes to finding places to eat with your four-legged friend, the town is very accommodating. Book one of our dog-friendly cottages in Saltash and you’ll find yourself within a stick’s throw of some fabulous pubs such as The Crooked Inn, The Brunel, and the Carew Arms. Expect delicious pub-grub, excellent beer and wine, and a warm welcome for your pet.
Dog-friendly things to do
Visiting Cornwall is like visiting another country. With unique scenery, rugged cliffs and some well-kept secrets, it’s the stuff that holidays are made of. Because the Saltash area is so dog-friendly, there’s no need to leave your faithful hound behind. To help you make the most of your downtime, we’ve put together a few of our favourite dog-friendly spots:
While it might be on the opposite coast, Tintagel Castle is well worth a visit. The legendary home of King Arthur, the ruins of this spectacular castle offer plenty of sniffability for curious canines. Don’t pass up the chance to visit Merlin’s Cave, which is sure to add a little magic to your dog’s day.
To fully appreciate Britain as an island, you won’t find a better view-point than Land’s End. There are some brilliant beaches for dedicated diggers and a Bronze Age village to explore. As long as your pooch is on a lead, the Land’s End Visitors’ Centre is very welcoming.
In addition to being a beautiful little village, Boscastle is home to a variety of attractions. The walk around the harbour is perfect for dogs, although you might want to keep them on a lead if you want to get close to the cliffs. The beach is huge, with the opportunity to get to know passing pups, and the town is peppered with some great places to eat. The ace up Boscastle’s sleeve is the Museum of Witchcraft. It’s dog-friendly and an easy way to spend an hour or two.
