We know your four-legged friend is very much a part of the family and we have over 30 dog friendly holiday cottages in Cornwall, so next time you go away they can be part of your holiday adventure.

Cornwall is a great place for dog walking with miles of coastline and beaches waiting to be explored and our dog friendly holiday cottages are on the doorstep on some of these places.

We define a dog friendly cottage as a place that welcomes dogs, has space for them to exercise and easy access to the wide open spaces or beautiful Cornish beaches. You will see an identification on your cottage search as to which Cornish cottages will accept one or more dogs. You may be able to bring more than two dogs but please do check on the cottage page or with us before booking.

Below we share just a selection of our dog friendly cottages across Cornwall. Click here to see the full range of dog friendly cottages in Cornwall.

Elm Cottage, Boscastle, Cornwall

Listed Grade II, this is a rare example of a beautifully unspoilt 17th-century Cornish cottage welcoming two dogs. Step outside your door and onto the footpaths of the Valency Valley and make your way to the half-forgotten churches of Minster and St. Julio’s - once made famous by Thomas Hardy.

Nanceglos House, Penzance, Cornwall

Set on the boundary of the garden at Trengwainton, Nanceglos House is a large dog friendly cottage with original Cornish features including an historic well. The large garden and easy access to great walks make it perfect accomodation for your doggy holiday.

Wood Cottage, Falmouth, Cornwall

Wood Cottage stands on the edge of a small wood, with views through the trees of the shimmering water below. The cottage provides easy access to the south west coast path which can take you to Mawnan in the east, and the start of a circular walk of about 4 miles - ideal for that active friend of yours!

Lower Pentire Barn, Helston Cornwall

This remote 18th century Cornish farmhouse welcomes two dogs with a tranquil garden, sea views and an easy dog walk two miles along the sand to the restaurants, pubs and shops of Porthleven.

West House, Loe, Cornwall

This striking and handsome slate-hung farmhouse has been converted into two sizeable cottages (West House & Old House) with far-reaching views easy access to coastal walks and their own enclosed gardens.

Meadow Cottage, Lanteglos-by-Fowey, Cornwall

This Cottage is an ideal base from which to explore the coast and countryside, the South West Coast path takes you to the villages of Polperro or Polruan. This cottage welcomes just 1 dog with a large garden and easy access to miles of walks.

What to expect for your dog at our cottages?

Our dog friendly cottages will include the basics to make your pet feel at home. You should find a dog water bowl, some poo bags and usually an area like a boot room or kitchen they can sleep in.

We kindly ask that your dogs aren’t allowed upstairs and don’t sit on the furniture.

Outside we ask that you clean up after your dog to ensure there are no nasty surprises for the next guests!

What you need to bring with you

You will need to bring dog food, leads and any bedding they wish to sleep on. An extra towel to wipe them down after a muddy walk will also be welcome!
