It is no secret that Cornwall, our little patch of paradise, is a stunning area known for its picturesque coastal towns, sandy beaches, and charming countryside. If you’re a dog owner and love camping, Cornwall is the perfect destination for you and your furry friend. This beautiful patch of the country offers a wide range of dog-friendly locations (including our very own camping grounds!) and activities, making it an ideal spot for a memorable camping adventure.
Here are some reasons why you and your furry friend should make Cornwall your next camping getaway:
- Dog-Friendly Campsites
This almost goes without saying but here at Lakefield, at our campground, we welcome furry four-legged friends of all sizes. We even have a 3.5-acre exercise field just for your dogs to run free and enjoy the countryside!
- Coastal Walks
Cornwall is famous for its breath-taking coastal walks, and many of them are dog friendly. Whether you want to stroll along the Southwest Coast Path, explore the sandy beaches, or venture into the charming fishing villages, you’ll find plenty of routes where your four-legged companion can join you. Just make sure to keep your dog on a lead when necessary and follow any local regulations.
- Dog-Friendly Beaches
Our patch of paradise is renowned for its stunning golden beaches, and the good news is that many of them allow dogs year-round. From popular destinations like Perranporth and St. Ives to hidden gems like Porthcurno and Kynance Cove, you and your dog can enjoy long walks, play fetch, and even have a splash in the water. Just be mindful of any seasonal restrictions or beach-specific limitations, and always clean up after your pet to maintain the cleanliness of these beautiful locations.
- Pet-Friendly Attractions
Did you know that Cornwall offers a variety of pet-friendly attractions that are perfect for exploring with your dog? Visit the iconic Tintagel Castle (just a 15 min drive from Lakefield!), the legendary birthplace of King Arthur, or wander around the mystical gardens of the Lost Gardens of Heligan.
- Dog-Friendly Pubs and Restaurants
Cornwall is known for its traditional pubs and delicious local cuisine, and many establishments welcome well-behaved dogs. After a long day of exploring, you can relax with your pup by the fire in a cosy pub or enjoy a meal in a dog-friendly restaurant. Some locations even offer dog menus, providing special treats for your furry friend so that you can unwind together after a busy day exploring all that Cornwall has to offer.
