A Dog’s Guide to Cornwall

Dog friendly CornwallCornwall is a wonderful destination for a dog-friendly holiday.  So, while your owners are busy with the packing, we thought we’d get down to the important business of giving all you Cornwall-bound hounds a guide to what Cornwall has in store for you.

With over 250 miles of coastline, all covered by the South West Coast Path, Cornwall has walks to satisfy even the most energetic pooch. A outstanding beach for four-legged visitors is to be found at Perranporth. Stretching for miles, these golden sands are dog-friendly all year round and make the perfect spot for long walks and splashing about in the water.

If all this walking has worked up a sweat, why not cool down with your very own Doggie Ice Cream at Pavilion Ice in Perranporth. Their 100% dog-friendly Rabbit, Braised Beef, Pulled Pork, or Venison flavours are sure to set tails wagging – they even serve ice creams for your human companions too.

Many Cornish visitor attractions are happy to welcome well-behaved dogs. The Cornish Seal Sanctuary, Gweek, makes a memorable day out for all the family. Overlooking the charming Helford Estuary, the Sanctuary allows you to get up-close with these enchanting creatures as well as an array of other wildlife, including sea lions, penguins and otters.

Nearby Trebah Garden also welcomes dogs. Enjoy a stroll through this Cornish valley transformed into a sub-tropical paradise. Be dwarfed by gigantic Gunnera, and gaze at the sky through the fronds of Tree Ferns as you make your way down to Trebah’s own beach and the shimmering Helford River.

At Forgotten Houses we have outstanding dog-friendly self-catering holiday homes available in stunning locations around the Helford River and across Cornwall – the ideal base from which to explore all that dog-friendly Cornwall has to offer.
