Why dog owners should move to Cornwall
May 2020
 

With incredible clifftop walks, miles of long sandy beaches, and stunning woodland trails, Cornwall is a veritable puppy paradise. If you own a canine companion and are thinking of selling up and moving to the countryside, here’s why you should consider choosing Cornwall. 

                                      

1. You’ll never run out of beaches

With more than 130 dog-friendly beaches ranging from small picturesque coves to miles of golden sands, Cornwall’s dog owners are spoiled for choice all year round when it comes to exercising their pups on the shore. Another 71 beaches allow dogs part of the year, with most of the seasonal bans in effect between Easter Day and Oct 1. You can find a complete guide to Cornwall’s dog friendly beaches here.

2. Most of the local pubs are dog-friendly

With cosy roaring fires in the winter and relaxing beer gardens in the summer, there’s nowhere better to enjoy a well-earned pint after a long clifftop ramble than a traditional Cornish pub. Fortunately, most of the pub landlords in Cornwall are just as fond of your dog as you are, often supplying water bowls for thirsty pups and dog treats on the counter. From Jamaica Inn, the atmospheric smuggler’s haunt on Bodmin Moor made famous by Daphne du Maurier’s novel, to The Watering Hole – the UK’s only bar on the beach – you’re bound to find a dog-friendly drinking place that suits you and your four-legged friend.

3. There are hundreds of dog-friendly attractions

Want to explore some of Cornwall’s historic castles? Both Tintagel Castle (linked to the legendary stories of King Arthur) and Pendennis Castle (built by Henry VIII to defend England from foreign invaders during Tudor times) allow dogs and host regular events that will entertain the whole family. History buffs and nature lovers can also bring their dogs to many of Cornwall’s manor homes and gardens, some of which you may recognise from various films and television shows. On a summer afternoon, you can enjoy a tour of Trevibban Mill vineyard with your pup and enjoy fine English wines overlooking the wild flower garden, or if you prefer to soak up some culture, you can learn about Cornwall’s mining history at the King Edward Mine Museum. Even some of the animal attractions are surprisingly dog friendly, including the Seal Sanctuary in Gweek and the National Lobster Hatchery in Padstow.

4. You can explore the South West Coast Path

Having a dog is guaranteed to keep you fit in Cornwall and with 300 miles of the South West Coast Path to explore, you’ll never run out of hikes. Scenery along the coast path varies from steep valleys to dramatic moorland to picturesque coves and inlets, and with historic ruins dating back to the Bronze Age along with remnants of Cornwall’s mining industry, there’s always something new to see. 

5. Nearly everyone else has one

It’s almost impossible to go anywhere in Cornwall without running into a fellow dog owner. Having a four-legged friend is a great way to meet new people, and since nearly everyone west of the Tamar seems to have a canine companion, you’ll fit right in.
