Dog Friendly Holidays in the UK: Cornwall

Following the easing of lockdown in the UK and with travel restrictions still in place for many countries overseas it's no wonder that holidays being booked here at home have more than tripled this summer. One of the major advantages of taking these ‘staycations’ is the fact that you can bring along your canine companions and allow them to enjoy a break, alongside you and the family, too. Here at The Pets Larder we think, with no bias at all, that magnificent Cornwall is one of the best places in the country to have a dog friendly holiday.

With a plethora of wonderful walks, hundreds of beautiful beaches and more dog-friendly accommodation options than you can shake a stick at, Cornwall really does have everything you and your dog could need. In a recent article Cornwall Live reported that in a list of the top dog-friendly locations, Cornwall took over a quarter of the top spots, with Padstow in North Cornwall taking first prize, so it's not just us that thinks this is a perfect place for a doggy break! So if you're planning a trip to the West Country with your hounds, at some point in the future, we've compiled a list of a few of our favourite places to stay, visit and eat and drink in the West Country with your dogs by your side.

Daymer Bay

Located on the other side of the Camel estuary from Padstow, this beautiful bay is a large stretch of soft sand that is surrounded by dunes that are great for walking and exploring. A bit more isolated than the more popular local beaches of Rock and Polzeath, Daymer Bay always feels less busy even in the height of summer. The gentle slope of the beach makes it a great place for your dogs to take a safe swim or splash in the sea. This beach, unusually for Cornwall, welcomes dogs all year round at any time, so you know there will always be a place for you and your best friends.
