Cornwall is a great destination for solo travelers with their dogs, and it’s easy to see why. Whether you’re looking for adventure or relaxation, Cornwall has it all. With its stunning coastline, beautiful countryside, and charming towns, this is an ideal place to explore with your pet by your side. So why not plan your next solo holiday with your four-legged friend in Cornwall and create memories that will last a lifetime?
Cornwall is a dog-friendly paradise with great walks (close by is Bodmin Moor, Dartmoor, South West Coastal Path, Golitha Falls and lots of beaches) and ample space for you and your pet to stretch your legs, take in the fresh air, and enjoy the scenic beauty. Most of the beaches in Cornwall welcome dogs, and many restaurants and cafes allow pets to join their owners. Your dog will have a great time exploring the endless paths and trails that lead through the countryside. And if you’re looking for a day out, the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the Eden Project both welcome dogs on leads. And for a truly unique experience, why not take a trip on the Bodmin and Wenford Railway, where dogs are welcome onboard the steam trains.
When it comes to dining out, many Cornish restaurants and cafes are happy to welcome well-behaved dogs. The Weary Friar is a traditional inn with pub food which was recently seen on TV in ‘Death in Paradise’ spin-off ‘Beyond Paradise’. The Who’d Have Thought It Inn has breathtaking views over the Tamar from their conservatory. The renown Rod and Line Pub has the pub atmosphere of old with good food and an excellent reputation as a music venue. The Springer Spaniel Pub has very tasty ‘fine dining’ food. Crocodan Farm The Granary cafe offering from chef, Dan Cox (formely at the famed Claridge’s Hotel Fera restaurant and the renowned Roux at Parliament Square) features regeneratively grown produce from the farm.
To make the most out of your solo holiday in Cornwall with your dog, there are a few things you need to consider.
Firstly, make sure to research and find dog-friendly accommodation that is convenient for your needs. Many hotels and self-catering accommodations are happy to welcome dogs, but it’s always best to check their pet policies and make reservations in advance. Some properties even offer specific pet-friendly amenities, such as enclosed gardens, dog beds, and feeding bowls, to make your stay as comfortable as possible for both you and your pet.
Secondly, plan your itinerary and make sure you include dog-friendly activities. From visiting dog-friendly beaches such as Portwrinkle and Downderry to National Trust properties such as Cotehele. You may also enjoy joining a group of similarly minded people for walks, meals out or activities such as Stand-up Paddleboarding (SUP), Wild Food Forraging or Wine Tasting For this type of experience, Lower Marsh Farm offers holidays for singles and their pets – you can stay either on a self-catering basis or upgrade to partially or fully catered. This gives you the best of both, with time to be by yourself and time to spend in company of other dog-loving singles.
