Penzance Area

Dog Friendly Hotels around Penzance

The editor at work

The Editor Says: Admittedly, lots of the beaches in the Penzance area don’t allow dogs during the summer months, but places such as nearby Prussia Cove do. Anyway, there’s more to this neck of the woods than snuffling around bits of seaweed and getting wringing wet. Trengwainton Gardens are dog friendly (on leads, of course), and we’re also welcome in the grounds at Godolphin (we can’t go inside the house itself in case one of us pees up some 16th century furniture, I suppose). And, of course, you’ve still got the fabulous coast path in West Cornwall to explore.
