Take a walk

Your dog will love the South West Coast Path, which runs past Porthleven and towards Penrose Estate, where the path runs inland. There are breathtaking views for walkers, and dogs will enjoy the variety of ground and new smells. Beware of steep cliffs!

Cosy up on a stormy night

The Ship Inn is the perfect place to cosy up in front of the fire and watch a storm raging in the outer harbour and out to sea. This dog-friendly pub offers a fabulous atmosphere, delicious food and local beer.

3 Eat out in a local restaurant
For a small town Porthleven really packs a punch with its selection of fine eateries. Choose from award winning Rick Stein, Kota Restaurant and Kota Kai. The Square offers incredible food too, and can enjoy fine coffee from Origin on the harbour head. Both Seadrift and Nauti-but-Ice welcome dogs.

Explore a beautiful local garden

Trebah Garden, near Falmouth, and Trengwainton Gardens, near Penzance, are both close by and dog friendly. “We love the open spaces any time of year. Trebah has designated doggie tables in the café, while Trengwainton has The Terrace with its huge open garden overlooking St Michael’s Mount – perfect for a picnic with your pooch.”

Relax by the woodburner

Following your day’s explorations, kick back in your luxury holiday cottage by the warmth of the fire, pooch by your side, preparing to do it all again the next day!
