Waggy tails welcome

Pamper your pooch with a stay at one of the county’s most dog-friendly hotels.

When it comes to dog-friendly luxury hotels in Cornwall, Talland Bay Hotel is heads and tails above the rest. The team at this boutique property appreciate that dogs are part of the family, and nothing is too much trouble for four-legged guests.

What better excuse to pamper your pet than with the new canine cupcake, whipped up with an oat-based sponge and mascarpone topping. The latest addition to the award-winning menu is being served on a complimentary basis to any pups marking a birthday. 

Of course, it doesn’t have to be a special occasion to spoil your best friend; the doggy cupcakes are available to purchase on request, which means no-one need miss out when booking afternoon tea. For hotel guests, the canine menu also includes handmade dog treats as well as fresh, locally sourced chicken at dinner time and Kittows Butchers’ sausages for breakfast. Dogs are invited to dine with owners in the conservatory restaurant and can look forward to receiving a Pooch Pamper Pack on arrival, with a dog blanket, bowls and feeding mat. 

As well as the beautiful hotel gardens, they’ll love going for strolls along the South West Coast Path, which meanders past the hotel. There’s also the year-round dog friendly Talland Bay beach at the bottom of the lane. Guests can take advantage of printouts of local walks and a list of dog-friendly attractions on request, too. There are doggy days out aplenty to plan, from the Eden Project and Lost Gardens of Heligan, to boat trips and beach days.

When it comes to retiring after a hard day’s exploring, there is a wide range of dog-friendly accommodation to choose from at Talland Bay Hotel. Whether you opt for a classic or sea view room, or one of the delightful garden suites with direct access to the grounds, you can stay with your dog in whichever room you prefer.
