Top Dog Friendly Hotels in Cornwall

Talland Bay Hotel, Looe, Cornwall

From castles to country house hotels, beachside spas to stylish bolt-holes, Cornwall represents the epitome of escapism for many. Now, with the autumn colours appearing, a slight chill in the air and a little more tranquillity with school routines returning, it’s a wonderful time for peaceful escapes to coast and countryside joined by four-legged companions. Here, the Good Hotel Guide shares eight of its top dog friendly hotels in Cornwall… 

The Nare, Veryan-in-Roseland

On the Roseland Peninsular, and one of only two five star hotels in Cornwall, The Nare is an old-fashioned hotel in all the best ways. With wonderful views of Gerrans Bay and rooms filled with fresh flowers, it is simultaneously stylish, comfortable and welcoming. The beach is close by, and many of the favourite pastimes when you’re here are connected to the coast. For example, the hotel’s yacht and elegant motor launch are available for use or skippered charter. The beautiful gardens also lend themselves to holidays that include dogs, who are welcomed. There is a daily charge, but it includes dinner from the dogs' table d'hôte menu. More Here
