Located on the south west tip of the UK, you’ll find the treasure that is the county of Cornwall. Situated on a long peninsula you’re never further than 20 miles from the picture-perfect coastline, no matter where you are. Jagged headlands provide dramatic views of the surrounding sea, rocky coves and pretty coastal towns and villages. Westerly facing beaches provide some of the best surf in the UK and Newquay is a great base from which to explore some top surfing beaches. If you want to stick to strolling on sand with your pooch then Cornwall has an array of dog friendly beaches without seasonal restrictions.
From sand castles to exploring real ones, be sure to visit St Michael’s Mount – a historic castle perched on an island accessible by foot during low tide or by boat. Or you and your pooch can walk all or part of the Saint’s Way – a 27 mile route connecting Padstow to Fowey and an early Christian route for Pilgrims. The quirky Eden Project also makes for a fascinating visit where you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to the rainforests of Costa Rica, not Cornwall. Dogs aren’t permitted in the Biomes but are welcome to roam the outdoor gardens. Start planning your trip with these top 15 dog friendly hotels in Cornwall…
