Dog Friendly Holidays with Forgotten Houses

Our four legged friends tend to be an integral part of the family so why shouldn’t they be part of your family holiday? Apart from Quay House and Brown’s Barn all our houses here at Forgotten Houses allow well behaved dogs so why not take advantage of these four legged friendly houses and plan a Cornish getaway?

Here are a few dog friendly things to do to ensure all the family enjoys their holiday!

Dog Friendly Beaches

Most beaches in Cornwall ban dogs from Easter to 1st October but there are some beaches that allow them all year round – these include Port Issac, home to 2 of our dog friendly holiday homes; Josiah’s Cottages and Waggon House, Helford Passage near Mellinzeath and Lorelei and Porth Kidney, East of the Hayle Estuary and near to Pencobben.
