One of Cornwall’s most famous towns is St Ives. It’s famous for the golden beach of Porthmeor, the surf and the art scene.

Take the dogs to Cornwall

This jagged southwestern coast of England can be broken down into three dog-friendly categories, which are: beaches, walking and sightseeing/culture. A combination of these achieves the blend of “day out for everyone” and “dog friendly” without compromising on either.

But first, knowing the most noteworthy towns in the area can help narrow down where you’re going to make time to visit. These include: Penzance (sans pirates), St Ives, Truro, Falmouth, St Just, Padstow, Fowey… if you find that you’ve ticked off all these popular towns, that’s when you should start exploring the lesser known ones, such as Whipsiderry Bay, St Agnes, Charlestown, Lantic Bay.

The golden beaches of Cornwall have a reputation for bringing in flocks of both British and international tourists to their shores every Summer, and it’s not just the famous St Ives Bay which makes that the case. All the previously mentioned towns and villages will have a “local”, but there are some exemplary dog-friendly beaches if you’re willing to move around which include Porthkidney Beach, Constantine Bay Beach, Holywell Bay Beach, Watergate Bay Beach and Duckpool Beach.

Walking opportunities in Cornwall are seemingly endless for first time visitors, and that doesn’t even need to include the stretches of sand you can sink your toes into (although you can if you want to). What makes the area particularly impressive is how much choice there is when you consider that it’s actually quite a small part of the country.

Whether it’s the sprawling coastal path, where you can enjoy views of Land’s End, or the multiple gardens in stately houses and castles such as The Lost Gardens of Heligan, Pinetum Gardens, or Trebah Garden, there is ample room to roam and ensure all six legs are suitably stretched for your and your dog.

If you’re not really a beach-person, prefer to engage with the sightseeing or cultural elements of an area, or just want to get a taste of both, then Cornwall is a stellar destination.

There’s the Eden Project for conservationists and nature-lovers alike, the Geevor Tin Mine for the museum-dwellers and knowledge-buffs, Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm for the foodies who don’t mind a tipple or two, the Lappa Valley Steam Railway for the activity-seekers, and of course The Minack Theatre for the culture-crazed (it’s also outdoors, so the dogs can absorb some theatre too).

Since 1980, the Tate St Ives has also managed Barbara Hepworth Museum and Sculpture Garden, adding a second unmissable museum in St Ives to your must-see list – quite a feat for such a small town! It’s dedicated to the work of 20th century sculptor, Barabara Hepworth, with excellent walking routes through the expansive, impressive gardens.

Land’s End in Sennen is another one of Cornwall’s star players. This landmark attraction is the most westerly part of England, on the Penwith peninsula, with breathtaking views of the waves crashing against craggy rocks. For those looking to really make the most of this part of the world, there is a strenuous but extremely rewarding walking path all the way from St Ives, along Penwith peninsula, to Land’s End.
