5 of the best dog-friendly stays

Curl up with your pooch after a day’s exploring in your choice of dog-friendly Cornish accommodation.

After the recent lockdown, our furry friends have become more accustomed than ever to having us around, leaving more of us basing our holiday plans on whether or not they can travel with us. In response, Cornwall’s superb selection of pet-friendly accommodation continues to expand, catering to humans and hounds alike.

The Jamaica Inn

Situated high on Bodmin Moor, the Jamaica Inn is the perfect place to rest your head after a day spent exploring. For foodies, almost all dishes on the menu here are homemade using the finest local ingredients. Delicious pre-packed picnics are also available for pre-order, and the new Farm Shop is well worth a visit. Having been providing relaxing, comfortable accommodation since the 1750s, its 36 en-suite bedrooms and suites include some with glorious four-poster beds. Steeped in legend and Cornish smuggling history, the inn inspired Daphne du Maurier to write about this iconic Cornish establishment, where you’ll find the world’s only du Maurier museum, as well as a Cornish Smuggling museum!


The Paris Hotel

Serving outstanding homecooked local seafood, meat and vegetarian dishes, the Head Chef at Coverack’s Paris Hotel has wide and varied experience that allows him to cater for every taste, from traditional English pub food to gourmet dining. As you might expect, being so close to the water, seafood is something of a speciality here, which means that if you’re hoping to sample Cornwall’s ‘fruits de mer’, a trip to The Paris Hotel in Coverack comes highly recommended! With pet-friendly rooms, located just moments from the coast path and beaches of the Lizard, this is the perfect place for you and your pooch to stop and stay awhile.


Chynale Barns

Located in Callestick near Perranporth, Chynhale Barns are stunning, 120% dog friendly cottages surrounded by beautiful countryside. Chynhale Barns are less than five minutes from Perranporth’s vast, dog-friendly beach, making them the perfect base for exploring Cornwall.

With secure gardens, tiled floors, zero restrictions on how many dogs you bring and where they go in the cottage, they are a pooch’s paradise. Quote ‘Cornwall Living’ for 5% off your 2020 holiday!
