Hotels for Happy Doggies in South West England: Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire
Dog Friendly Hotels in the Penzance Area
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 someone pees up some 16th century furniture or similar, I suppose). And, of course, you’ve still got the fabulous coast path in West Cornwall to explore.
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.
