Location and surrounding area

Willow Barn is a cozy and comfortable accommodation that welcomes dogs and their owners. It is located in a very serene environment, surrounded by the rolling Cornish countryside. You and your dog can enjoy the fresh air and the scenic views from the private patio, or explore the nearby footpaths and trails.

Falmouth is a charming seaside town that offers plenty of dog-friendly attractions and activities. You can stroll along the historic harbour, visit the Pendennis Castle, or browse the boutique shops, eateries and art galleries. Many of them allow dogs inside or have outdoor seating areas. You can also take a ferry to St Mawes or Flushing and admire the stunning coastline.

If you’re looking for some fun and adventure, you can head to Flambards theme park, which has rides, shows, and exhibitions for all ages. Dogs are welcome in most areas of the park, except for some indoor attractions. You can also visit the Cornish Seal Sanctuary, which is situated in the small town of Gweek. Here you can see rescued seals, sea lions, penguins, and otters. Dogs are allowed on a lead in most parts of the sanctuary, except for the seal pools.

Another great place to visit with your dog is the Helford River, which offers opportunities for sports and leisure activities. You can rent a kayak or a boat and explore the hidden coves and creeks, or join a guided tour and learn about the wildlife and history of the area. You can also walk along the riverbank and discover some of the picturesque villages and gardens that dot the landscape.

One of the most beautiful gardens in Cornwall is Trebah Gardens, which is very close to Willow Barn. This subtropical paradise has over four miles of footpaths that wind through exotic plants and flowers. You can also enjoy the views of the private beach and the river. Dogs are welcome on a lead throughout the garden, except for the children’s play area.
