Dog friendly Marazion

If you’re anything like us, the thought of leaving your four-legged family members off the guest list of your next seaside holiday is out of the question. Our collection of dog friendly cottages can be found dotted around the town and all are within a short stroll of the seafront so you’ll be able to enjoy sandy walks with your best friend whenever you feel like it.

Marazion’s dog friendly dining

Many of Marazion’s pubs and restaurants welcome four-legged patrons and we can’t think of anything better than a good, hearty meal to top of an excellent walk. If you’re into laid-back beach dining with a superb view, The Godolphin Arms is an excellent choice. Unlike some other restaurants, dogs are actually permitted in all sections of the restaurant, both upstairs on the terrace and downstairs in the main bar, so you’ll be able to pick your favourite spot and get comfortable.

The King’s Arms just back from the seafront is another delightfully dog-friendly place to relax in the sunshine, and if you’re partial to scampi and crab sandwiches you can’t go wrong. Or if it’s a liquid refreshment, light bite or big roast dinner you’re after, The Fire Engine Inn on Higher Fore Street is a winner.

Coffee and cake lover? The Copper Spoon in Marazion is something of a locals’ institution that welcomes well-behaved dogs as well as their humans. Just 5-minutes’ walk from the beach, this cosy café serves up a delicious variety of both sweet and savoury treats. And if Rover gets impatient you can ask for your coffee and cupcakes to go as they serve most of their dishes as take aways.

Marazion’s dog friendly beaches

Marazion is home to two great beaches. Marazion’s main beach is long and sandy, and at low tide it stretches all the way to Penzance. Unfortunately as with many coastal towns, dogs are not allowed on this beach during July and August (between the hours of 10am – 6pm) when a seasonal dog ban is in place.

To the East of Marazion Top Tier Harbour is a sandy dog friendly beach that can’t be seen from the road or car parks and is therefore a bit of a local’s secret. Dogs are welcome on Steps Beach at any time of the year and is also a favourite for locals as it’s quieter than other beaches in the area.

If you don’t mind a short drive (and we do mean short), nearby Long Rock has a long golden stretch that welcomes dogs all year round. It’s great for kids too as its swimming conditions are mostly calm and flat, and there’s no shortage of sand for digging in.
