Falmouth Area

Dog Friendly Hotels around Falmouth

The Editor Says: Forget for one moment that dogs aren’t allowed on the main beaches of the Falmouth area during the Summer months, because there’s loads of other brilliant places to chase balls and muck about like a numpty. Four legs are allowed on most of the little coves on the Helford River all year (except Helford Passage beach), and if you can put up with the indignity of being on a lead then attractions such as Trebah Gardens are happy to have us. Oh, and the coast path from Falmouth’s seafront round to the Helford is hound heaven. But I would say that… I live there. Lucky old me.

Meudon Hotel, Mawnan Smith
