Dog Friendly Hotels in South East Cornwall

The Paws4Rest chief editor

The Editor Says: A great part of the county for long holidays and weekend breaks alike, South East Cornwall is absolutely banging not only for its numerous dog friendly beaches, but also for the fact that places such as Plymouth, Dartmoor and the Fowey area are all close by, too. Sea dogs will no doubt enjoy Hannafore and Plaidy Beaches around Looe, while Lantivet Bay near Polperro is another one that allows hounds year round. And if it’s an enjoyable walk along the coast the folks fancy, try the area around Talland Bay.

Talland Bay Hotel, near Looe

Talland Bay Hotel, Cornwall

With an award winning restaurant and some splendid views, the four star rated Talland Bay is certainly one of the most highly regarded hotels in South East Cornwall. Looe itself is just a couple of miles to the east, while picturesque Polperro is even closer to the west. Splendid walks along the coast path are to be found within just a short distance.

Paws Policy: Very dog friendly, and welcome to stay for a supplementary charge of £12.00 per hound per night. Four-legged guests are able to dine with their owners in the brasserie-style restaurant but not the fine-dining one. Most rooms can accommodate pets, but advance notice is still required.
