Dog Friendly Days Out

Cornwall is absolute heaven for dogs! From woodland wanders in your wellies to energetic coast path climbs to chilled, bare foot walks on the beach. We have put together a few ideas of what we know your dog will love to do while on holiday with you.

Dog-friendly beaches in Charlestown

While Charlestown Beach has a dog ban, you’ll find plenty of beautiful dog-friendly beaches around Charlestown to enjoy during your stay, no matter what time of year you choose to visit.

The Roseland Peninsula is dotted with such beaches. One of the finest is Hemmick Beach, fond to the west of Dodman Point. A National Trust car park lies a 10-minute walk away and, despite this being an attractive stroll for any canine companion, it puts most tourists off – so you will likely have the destination to yourself.

Gorran Haven Beach, about a 25-minute drive from Charlestown, welcomes well-behaved dogs on leads. This gorgeous fishing village is dotted with chocolate-box cottages and is a popular place for kayaking, swimming, and surfing.
