Dog friendly places to visit in Cornwall

After I finished my thesis in September, James and I went to Cornwall for a week and, of course, Clover came too! This was her first holiday and my biggest excitement was taking her to the beach for the first time!



As I expected, she LOVED digging in the sand and didn’t mind paddling in the water either!

The dog friendly beaches we visited whilst in Cornwall were:

  • Sandymouth Bay Beach
  • Tintagel Beach
  • Rock
  • National Trust Trelissick Garden

When booking the holiday, the first thing I searched for was dog friendly cottages and found a website actually called The website searches for holiday properties all over the UK and at a range of prices! (This is not an ad or sponsored, just my experience of holidaying in Cornwall!) We found a lovely two bedroom cottage in Camelford which was cheaper than some of the more popular seaside destinations.

Dog friendly places to eat in Cornwall

Although we had a self-catering cottage, we did eat out quite a bit. As we had Clover with us, we mainly ate at pubs and cafes. Here is a list of the places we ate at:

  • Four Seasons Cafe, Camelford
  • Masons Arms, Camelford
  • The Preston Gate Inn, Poughill, Bude
  • Stein’s Fish & Chips, Padstow
  • The Boathouse Pub & Restaurant, Falmouth
  • The Krab Pot, Port Isaac


Cornwall is well known for it’s accommodating nature towards dogs and we had a lovely week soaking up the sun (and the rain).  It’s always nice to explore the wonderful places that the UK has to offer and Clover thoroughly enjoyed meeting all the other dogs on their holidays too!

  1. This is so helpful! When we lived in Devon we had a dog, and when visiting Cornwall did struggle to find good dog-friendly places to eat – this would have been great! Happy to hear you all had a lovely time x
