Home » Dog Friendly


If you can’t bear to be parted from your faithful furry friends, why not bring them with you so they too can enjoy a Cornwall holiday staying in one of our dog-friendly cottages or lodges.

Cottages and lodges are in the setting of our wonderful hotel grounds of landscaped gardens and ancient woodland, with lovely views of gently rolling hills over to Par Beach, so plenty of opportunities for scenic ‘walkies’.

For just £15 reservation supplement per dog per night, you can be accompanied by up to two dogs for your stay, saving you the trouble and expense of dog sitters or kennels. A large fleecy blanket is provided to keep them snug, and ‘poo’ bags to keep our grounds mess free. We simply ask you observe a few house rules, for the comfort of all our guests!

Wyndham Trenython Manor is Dog-Friendly!



We have plenty of ideas for ways in which you can enjoy the countryside with your pooches, as well as some of Cornwall’s fabulous beaches, but here first is a reminder of the Countryside Code:

  • Enjoy the countryside and respect its life and work.
  • Guard against all risk of fire.
  • Fasten all gates.
  • Keep your dogs under close control.
  • Keep to public paths across farmland.
  • Use gates and stiles to cross fences, hedges and walls.
  • Leave livestock, crops and machinery alone.
  • Take your litter home.
  • Help to keep all water clean.
  • Protect wildlife, plants and trees.
  • Take special care on country roads.
  • Make no unnecessary noise.


Whether dropping into a ‘local’ or going further afield, here are a few of the places where your dog will be made to feel at home with you.

The Four Lords (3 miles) pub in Par, a stone’s throw from The Eden Project, welcomes dogs “with open arms”.

Earl of Chatham (5 miles) pub in Lostwithiel promises a very dog friendly welcome, allowing canine companions into the bar area for a drink (water!) and a bite to eat.

Lanivet Inn (10 miles) boasts homemade food and welcomes four-legged friends.

Cornish Arms (25 miles) is one of Rick Stein’s businesses in Cornwall, with friendly staff, great food and good atmosphere – with or without a dog.

Ohana Beach Café (29 miles) in Newquay, invites dogs into its restaurant and onto a terrace, with water bowls and doggie treats provided be that a biscuit or bacon – or whatever titbit is at hand.

Café Mylor (30 miles), located between Truro and Falmouth on the banks of the Fal Estuary, at Mylor Yacht Harbour, welcomes dogs with biscuits and water bowls. You could even join its regular Wednesday morning dog walking get together!

The Deli (56 miles) in Marazion is a friendly café, worth visiting when making a trip to St Michael’s Mount. The Deli offers homemade cakes, scones, soups, meals etc. and dogs are very, very welcome.


Cornwall really does come into its own with a variety of terrains to explore with your dogs; they’ll love it as will you.

This famous trail stretches for 18 mostly car-free miles from Padstow to Bodmin. Walkers, cyclists, horses and dogs are welcome, but pets must be well behaved as leaving the trail can cause damage to private land, livestock, the river and wildlife. Of course, you don’t have to do it all and there are three main sections, each approximately 5-6 miles long. Following a disused railway line, it is a popular recreational route with a variety of wildlife such as otters and kingfishers to watch out for. For more information, and the code of conduct, please visit Reception.

There are muddy Cornish marshes that start from down the road in Treesmill and run right through to Par duck pond, where the locals like to walk their dogs – of course, you have to not mind the mud!

A National Trust walk beginning in Fowey (2 miles away) and travelling up to the Gribben Head lighthouse. This coastal walk takes you to beaches, coves, woodlands and grassland rich in wild flowers – another favourite spot for local canines.

A beautiful country estate that exudes the feel of a wealthy but unpretentious family home. There are beautiful herbaceous gardens and the estate with its woodlands and tranquil riverside paths is well worth exploring. Open every day to dogs with their owners.

A short scenic coastal path that runs along the cliffs from Par to Polkerris beach, so you can enjoy the views while getting your pet exercised. At Polkerris, you might want to treat yourselves to some good food and a well deserved rest outside The Rashleigh pub, or Sam’s on the Beach. Dogs are welcome on Par beach all year round but Polkerris operates a seasonal ban during peak summer months.

A favourite for local dog walkers, this walk is about 4.5 miles and should take about 2.5 hours to complete. While not overly difficult, there are one or two steep sections and some areas can be either rocky or muddy. Appropriate footwear is essential. You can organise the walk to a distance you prefer. The King’s Arms pub is located near the river and railway halt at Bridges. A St. Austell house, it has the usual range of pub grub. There is also a small village store close to the start of the walk.

A 4 mile circular walk around Bodinnick, through woods and down to Pont creek then back up to Polruan, with fantastic views of the estuary. This walk begins with the dog friendly ferry ride from Fowey to Polruan, and the footpath is signposted ‘The Hall Walk’. Take care as the path can be slippery, uneven and steep in places.


COOMBE HAVEN (2 miles) is a small National Trust cove of sand, shale and rocks backed by steep cliffs. A beautiful, although not easily accessible spot as you have to walk for about 15 minutes through a steep wooded valley from Fowey. Dog friendly year round.

PAR SANDS (2 miles) is a beach that can be spotted from our terrace. It is a large, golden sand beach on Cornwall’s south coast, backed by grassy sand dunes. The beach offers views of the Roseland Peninsula in the distance and old china clay works. Dog friendly year round.

SPIT BEACH (3 miles) is in Par on the route to St Austell, the beach is about a 10-minute walk from the car park and is dog friendly year round.

LANTIC BAY (14 miles) is a gorgeous beach in a cove at Polruan near Fowey. It is sand and shingle and the trek to it is a very steep walk of around 20 minutes duration.

CONSTANTINE BEACH (26 miles) is a long curve of golden sands that lies about 3 miles out of Padstow in the direction of Newquay and is dog friendly year round.
