Holidays in Cornwall just got even more dog friendly!

Doggy Day Care Cornwall - Dog Beach Ban

Cornwall has always been very dog friendly. With a plethora of restaurants, attractions and hotels that not only allow dogs, but provide special dog friendly services, there’s always been plenty of options.

Now thanks to a change in Government legislation Cornwall Council has a revised their current ban for dogs on beaches during summer. Instead of the ban running from Easter Sunday until 30th September the ban will now be from 1st May to the end of September, between approximately 9am and 6pm. As well as giving dog owners a few extra weeks to use the beaches in the spring, they can now access them much later in the morning and earlier in the evening during summer. Perfect if you love taking your pooch out for a walk straight after work! Before the change dogs weren’t allowed on many beaches during summer until 9pm.

Although these times will vary from beach to beach, it’s good news all round for dog owners in Cornwall. To celebrate we thought we’d share some of our favourite dog friendly places in Cornwall:

Stay – Sail Lofts, St Ives
