Hotels for Happy Doggies in South West England: Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire
Dog Friendly Hotels in St. Ives and West Cornwall
The Editor Says: While we aren’t allowed on a lot of the beaches at St. Ives between May until the end of September, we can still go to ones such as Bamaluz and Lambeth Walk all year round (and Porth Kidney towards Lelant is also great for a canine yomp). But there are loads more places to enjoy, especially with the coast path in West Cornwall having great stop offs such as Portheras Cove, near Pendeen, where you can run around in circles like a numpty during any month. And if you’re visiting in winter, make sure you go to Porthcurno.
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.
