Guest Blog :: Autumn Escapes for you and your pooch
6 October 2017
Pack a suitcase for your pooch, and head to the coast this Autumn. Dog-friendly self catering accommodation providers Cornwalls Cottages reveal the best places to go walkies in Cornwall with your four-legged friend.
Autumn has arrived in Cornwall all of a sudden, bringing crisp mornings, cosy jumper and wonderful autumnal colours – it’s the time of year we swap sun-kissed glows for weather-flushed cheeks and wind swept hair!
The Autumn months in Cornwall are a great time of year to discover the coastline and rolling countryside of Cornwall with your four legged friend – the weather is still mild and the roads less busy, giving you the freedom and time to explore more of Cornwall!
Most places you visit in Cornwall are dog friendly with many pubs, cafes and attractions welcoming dogs. All dogs love playing in the sand and surf and, with the dog ban restrictions ending on the 1st October, there are many more beaches and coves in Cornwall to choose from – your four legged friend will be spoilt for choice!
Porthallow beach is located on the Lizard Peninsula. This small, pebbly beach is sheltered and a wonderful place to visit for the day. Enjoy exploring the rock pools at low tide and walk the coastal path with fantastic views over to Falmouth bay. There is a large car park, facilities and a cafe by the beach.
Trengwainton is a sheltered historic garden dating back to the 1920s with exotic trees and shrubs. Trengwainton has five sections of walled gardens full to bursting with exotic species from around the world. Half a mile of winding wooded paths leads you to views across Mounts Bay and open meadows.
The Bissoe Trail
Choose to walk or cycle from coast to coast on this lovely trail following the old mineral tramway between Devoran and Portreath. This 14 mile trail passes through hidden valleys and quaint villages. There are some great pubs along the way to stop and refuel!
Holywell Bay is a beautiful dog friendly beach with golden sands and welcoming turquoise waters. This is a wonderful place to let your dogs run free and enjoy the coastal surroundings. Be sure to stop by The Treguth Inn, which is also dog friendly!
More than half Cornwall Cottages self catering properties welcome dogs, so there is no reason to leave them behind.
