Our checklist of pooch friendly things to do during your Cornish getaway…


Visit a top attraction

There’s nothing worse than wanting to explore a local attraction and then discovering that dogs aren’t allowed. We’ve all been there. Thankfully there are many, many lovely places to see in Cornwall that do allow dogs. So with a bit of planning ahead you should be able to enjoy as many days out and about with your dog as you wish. Here is a list of our top picks:

Pendennis Castle

If you’re into your history then the award-winning Pendennis Castle in Falmouth is a must-visit. Resting on a headland overlooking the sea which was the best place to ward off any would-be invaders of Falmouth and its estuary, the views from this Tudor fortress are spectacular. Witness a gun deck in action here or follow the tunnels down to Half Moon Battery and discover the underground magazine where ammunition was stored during the Second World War. Dogs welcome on leads.

The Eden Project

Just outside of St Austell in the south west, the Eden Project and its instantly recognizable Biomes is one of Cornwall’s most famous attractions. Boasting the world’s largest greenhouses which sit within a giant 50 metre deep crater (about the size of 30 football pitches), the project aims for visitors to experience nature in a new and extraordinary way.

Trek through the world’s largest indoor rainforest and immerse yourself in the calm fragrance of the Mediterranean Biome. Enjoy extensive Outdoor Gardens, contemporary artworks, performance and storytelling. Discover places to rest, play and eat. You can take your dog along to explore the paths in their outdoor gardens (but not in the indoor Biomes).

Healeys Cyder Farm

Family-owned and Cornish born and bred, Healeys distillery has been in operation for 300 years and is still going strong! Your don’t need to be a fan of the golden liquid to enjoy this wonderful place – they have vineyards that produce good wines too!

The farm itself is set right in the heart of the Cornish countryside and boasts beautiful views of orchards and vineyards. There’s plenty to see and do as well from guided tours and a museum to watching a show. Dogs on a lead are very welcome at Healeys! There are however just two small exclusions, dogs are not permitted in the production halls or in the jam kitchen for hygiene purposes. Other than that, your furry family members can join you everywhere else you go, including on a tractor ride and in the restaurant!

Grab a Cornish pasty (for you and your dog!)

So, the one thing everyone HAS to do when they visit Cornwall is tuck into a traditional Cornish pasty; that flaky pastry and meaty filling (spiced just right) is positively delectable. But what if we told you that your canine buddy can share in the moment?

Based in Hayle, Paws For Cake is owned by husband and wife team Tina and Pete Willoughby who are in the business of creating healthy treat for dogs that contain no additives or preservatives. Their pasty-shaped (and apparently delicious) dog treats are available throughout Cornwall at most National Trust sites and dog friendly gardens including the Eden Project, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and Trebah Gardens.
