North Cornwall

Dog Friendly Hotels in North Cornwall

The Editor Says: Any dog who comes to North Cornwall and doesn’t get chance to have a womble along the coast path between Padstow and Harlyn Bay is missing a banging treat. And what’s really good is that many of the best beaches (such as Constantine Bay and Trebarwith Strand) allow four-legged visitors all year round. Of course, there’s much more to this part of Cornwall than the beaches (although they are a pretty big reason for coming in the first place), with world famous attractions such as Tintagel Castle welcoming dogs on leads. Also see our Newquay list for more inspiration.
