Truro and Roseland

Dog Friendly Hotels around Truro & Roseland

Our glorious editor

The Editor Says: The handy thing about the Truro and the Roseland Peninsula area of Cornwall is that it’s so central to places and stuff. If it’s a bit of mucking about on the beach you fancy then there are options at nearby St. Agnes on the north coast, where there’s also a fabulous stretch of coast path to snuffle along – I’ve enjoyed a few widdles-on-twigs there, I can tell you! Trewithen Gardens near Grampound also accept dogs (on leads, of course) while pooches can also mooch in the grounds of St. Mawes Castle on the Roseland. And Carne Beach allows canine holidaymakers all year round, too.
