East Cornwall

Dog Friendly Hotels in the East of Cornwall

The Editor Says: The grand thing about staying in East Cornwall is that so many places in both Cornwall and Devon are reachable for days out. Mind you, that doesn’t mean there aren’t some notable dog friendly attractions right on the doorstep: Lanhydrock allows dogs in its parkland areas, Pencarrow welcomes them in its gardens and woodlands, while both Restormel Castle and Launceston Castle also allow four legged visitors. And if you crave sea air and the feeling of sand between your paws (and all over the back of the car afterwards) then both north and south coasts are easy to get to.
