Dog Friendly Tips for Autumn Holidays in Cornwall 5 / 10 / 2018

Top tips for dogs in cornwall for autumn

As you may know five of our self-catering cottages are dog friendly, and our own dog Darcy just loves welcoming new friends! Autumn is the perfect season to get out and explore the beauty of Cornwall with your fury friend. Here are some ideas of what you can do on your dog friendly holiday with us.

Head to the beach! Its a no-brainer when holidaying in Cornwall, but out of season even more beaches are open to dogs. On the North coast you could take your pooch to Trevone Bay in Padstow, a popular spot for surfing. Or maybe do the Poldark thing and enjoy Watergate Bay, this vast sandy beach has plenty of room to run off steam, great amenities and is dog friendly all year round. Harlyn Bay is a real family friendly beach dotted with rock pools and backed by sand dunes. Another popular beach with the locals is Daymer Bay, packed with history and ever changing views. Trebarwith Strand near Tintagel is ruggedly picturesque, a breathtaking location for you and the dog. Don’t forget to check the tide times and stay safe.

When it comes to eating out with your canine friend we have options too. If it’s not balmy enough to sit outside you could enjoy a slice of Rick Stein’s Cornwall by heading to Fistral for a laid back eating experience with fish and chips and authentic Indian cuisine. Lots of pubs are happy to have dogs including the King’s Arthur’s Arms in Tintagel and our local the Malster’s Arms have designated dog friendly areas, a pleasant walk from your holiday cottage.

Autumn activity ideas, SUP with the dog

Feeling active? Many local attractions will welcome dogs, Harlyn Surf School offer stand up paddle boarding – four legs may well be better than two! Lappa Valley Steam Railway will let your dog come too for an extra pound, and you can take in Cornwall’s military history with the Regimental Museum in Bodmin with a fury friend in tow.

As well as our wonderful coastline don’t forget you can explore the wilds of Bodmin moor, or perhaps take to the scenic Camel Trail which is ideal for relatively flat meandering. For Arthurian culture there is always Tintagel Castle where dogs are welcome on leads.

For the pampered pooch pop in to Trevisker Garden Centre and explore Paws in Padstow with treats for both dogs and their owners!
