Hotels for Happy Doggies in South West England: Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire
Dog Friendly Hotels in North Cornwall
The Editor Says: Any dog who comes to North Cornwall and doesn’t have a wander 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 more to this part of Cornwall than the beaches (though 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.
Booking Online: Making a reservation with Booking.com or LateRooms.com is easy and convenient. When doing so it is important that you make clear your intention to bring your dog in the “special requests” box so that the hotel or inn is made aware in advance. Please note that our “Paws Policy” information is for approximate guidance only and that the hotel, inn or bed and breakfast’s actual policies may change at any time and/or be more comprehensive. We play no part in the actual booking process.
