The rain is pouring down outside but luckily we've had a few good and mainly dry weeks on holday in Cornwall. As before, Cornwall proved to be a pretty dog friendly county and a good time was had by all. This years dog freindly higlights included:
Best walks and dog friendly beaches
The Beaches between Rock and Daymar Bay - Miles of dog friendly beach and sand dunes which are virtually deserted other than the occasional dog walker in the early morning. Fantastic!
Pentire Head and the Rumps - Spectacular cliff walks, but keep your dog on the lead!
Watergate Bay - Great beach and out of peak season there are plenty of quieter stretches. The Beach Hut overlooking the bay is the dog friendly alternative to Jamie Oliver's 15!
The Camel Trail - Miles of old railway track through great scenery. The stretch between Padstow and Wadebridge is most popular with cyclists but there are plenty of other stretches to visit.
Best dog friendly places to eat
The Blue Peter at Polperro - The best dog friendly pub (if not just the best pub!) in Cornwall. Lovely setting right on the harbourside, really welcoming landlord, good beer and fantastic food. Dogs welcome in bar.
The Wellington at Boscastle - Welcoming dog friendly hotel and pub. Good beer and good food. Dogs welcome throughout.
The Customs House in Padstow - Very dog friendly in the bar. Not the best food but ok, and a good place to eat if it's raining or cold!
The Old Inn at St Breward - One of our favourite places last year, and just as good this year. Just on the edge of Bodmin Moor. Dogs welcome in the spacious bar area.
