MY Best Dog Days Out

You may find yourself wondering what dog friendly activities Cornwall has to offer that can keep you entertained during your stay. We’ve complied a short list below of what we believe to be the best days out for you and your dog to enjoy together.


1. Sea Life Safari, Padstow



Padstow Sea Life Safaris offer an experience both you and your furry friend can enjoy. This means your dog can make friends with dolphins, seals and whatever other sea life you may encounter. They allow well behaved, small to medium size dogs but do warn that some dogs may not enjoy the bounciness of the boat.


2. Lobster Hatchery, Padstow

The National Lobster Hatchery, is an amazing place for your dog to meet creatures which they would never usually encounter up close. It’s a fun, educational day out that the whole family can enjoy. It allows you to experience a lobsters life cycle and how important they are to the marine ecosystem.

This is a superb walk along stretching golden sand, dog friendly all year long meaning your four-legged friend can enjoy Cornwall just as much as you. Situated on the estuary the sea is calmer and experiences no waves, virtually all year long. This means it is perfect for your dog to also enjoy a swim.


4. The Eden Project



The Eden Project is a great day out for the whole family. It provides you with an education about how important plants are and how much they have contributed to our society as a whole. There are extensive gardens where dogs are free to explore with you. As well as large biomes, all of which have varying climates including a rainforest (unfortunately dogs are not allowed inside these).


5. Tintagel Castle



Tintagel Castle is said to have belonged to the legendary King Arthur. You and your dog can cross the bridge and delve into the ruins discovering the rich history this location has to offer. Below the castle, on the beach, you can explore Merlin’s cave which runs underneath the ruins.


6. Seal Sanctuary, Gweek



If you venture slightly further down the county you may stumble across the seal sanctuary in Gweek. This is also dog friendly, meaning that your whole family can meet the seals together with no one left behind.




7. Jamaica Inn



Jamaica Inn, famous for smuggling and pirates, allows dogs in both the bar and the museum. This is the perfect place for those looking to explore the darker side of Cornish history.
