Plymouth Area

Dog Friendly Hotels around Plymouth

The Editor Says: The really handy thing about staying in the Plymouth area is that you’ve got Dartmoor, the South Hams and South East Cornwall all on the metaphorical doorstep. Quite what a metaphorical doorstep looks like I don’t know, but never mind. While you can always have a pootle along the Hoe where Francis Drake played bowls (apparently), there are also lots of dog friendly places just a short drive away from the city. Four legged beings are welcome in the park at Saltram House (though not in the building itself), on leads at Morwellham Quay, and in Mount Edgcumbe Country Park at Torpoint, amongst others.

The Duke of Cornwall Hotel, Plymouth

Welcoming visitors since 1863, this splendid piece of Victorian architecture is a true landmark of the city (it remarkably survived the blitz of World War II). Undeniably grand, it features an award winning restaurant, two bars, and over 70 rooms and suites. The historic waterfront of Plymouth (and the Hoe) are just a short walk away, as indeed are the city’s main shopping streets.
