Dog friendly hotels in Cornwall
Old Success Inn, Sennen Cove
Proudly perched on Sennen Beach’s waterfront, make the Old Success your base for discovering all Cornwall has to offer. Sennen Cove beach isn't dog friendly as it has a seasonal dog ban between May and September, however you’ll find the secluded Gwyner Beach just around the corner allowing pups to play all year round.
Take to the coastal path together and discover the most westerly point in the UK, Land’s End. A popular spot throughout the year, dogs are welcome when kept on the lead. Extend your walkies and you’ll soon find the magical Nanjizal Cove – another year-round dog friendly beach, perfect for your pup to splash around in the waves!
Looking to learn more about Cornwall's wildlife? A visit to the region would be incomplete without a trip to the Cornish Seal Sanctuary. And, while it's just under an hour from the Old Success Inn, it's a fantastic chance for your land pup to meet the dogs of the sea! Come rain or shine, meet some of the locals with a day-trip.
If you’re looking for dog friendly accommodation in Sennen Cove, the Old Success Inn has it all. And of course, your four-legged friend can join you in the pub for a pawper pint.
Port William, Tintagel
Explore Tintagel, part of Cornwall’s dramatic north coast, before retreating to the Port William to cosy up after your adventures together. With Trebarwith Strand Beach welcoming dogs throughout the year, your loveable canine companion needn’t miss out on its famous views, caves and golden sands. The nearby Bossiney Cove is a hidden gem in the area that many miss, lying just a mile from Tintagel, it’s perfect for adventurous pooches and their owners.
With 630 miles of the South West Coast Path to choose from, you’ll be spoilt for choice but, the stretch from Trebarwith Stand to Port Isaac is a particularly rewarding route. Overcome steep inclines and you’ll be rewarded with glorious views stretching across the ocean before reaching the picture-postcard fishing village of Port Isaac – famously known as the setting for ITV’s Doc Martin series.
For more iconic views, take a quick 20-minute drive to Pentire Point, near Polzeath, where you’ll find ‘The Rumps’ – a rock formation said to resemble a restful dragon. Our dog friendly accommodation in Tintagel will see you discover authentic Cornwall, with plenty of walks to keep you both entertained.

The Globe, Topsham
Escape the hustle and bustle of Exeter, The Globe lies just four miles from the city but is a world away. Just a stone’s throw, you’ll find Haldon Forest Park – a gorgeous woodland spanning 3,500 acres and boasting a range of trails to suit all pup-abilities. Not sure where to start? The Discovery Trail carves a picturesque path through the forest, with plenty of idyllic resting points along the way.
Nestled around the corner from Exmouth lies Budleigh Salterton Beach, a 2.5-mile pebble beach flanked by the Jurassic Coast’s unmistakable red sandstone cliffs. While there are restrictions on the main area, dogs are welcome on the sands adjacent to the Lime Kiln car park and Steamer Steps all year.
Our dog-friendly accommodation in Topsham allows you to explore a range of attractions, promising to get those tails wagging. Powderham Castle is a fascinating day out for four-legged friends and owners alike with acres of beautiful grounds to run around, alongside a magnificent, fortified manor house. Uncover history at every turn as you step through a patchwork of elegant rooms, each with its own story to tell. Or, perhaps you'd rather opt for something a little more action-packed - try Saddles and Paddles. Hire a bike with your furry friend or take to the water, exploring the River Exe by canoe.
Mason Arms, Branscombe
The picture-postcard village of Branscombe serves as a fantastic base for exploring all dog-friendly Devon has to offer. Paw your way over into rural bliss, while still in walking distance of the breath-taking Jurassic Coast.
With its own secluded shingle slice of the South Devon coastline, Branscombe Beach is a must-visit with your canine companion, lying just a short stroll from the pub. Playful pubs are also welcome on the nearby Beer Beach, although only between October 1st and April 30th. If you’re feeling adventurous, continue along the coast path and travel back in time as you delve through into the area’s smuggling past.
If you’re looking for dog friendly accommodation in Branscombe, it doesn’t get much better than the recently refurbished Masons Arms. Wash off dirty paws in our outdoor tub after your adventures, and snuggle up beside the fire with a Proper Job to match your pup’s Proper Dog pint.
