Top 10 Dog Friendly Beaches in Cornwall


October 1st marks the lift on the ‘dog ban’ across beaches in Cornwall and to celebrate, we have rounded up our favourites within a 30-minute drive of the Hotel.

Penventon is lucky enough to be situated close to some of the UK’s most stunning dog friendly beaches (and arguably the best in the world!) with miles of golden sand, beautifully sculpted sand dunes and dog friendly cafés along the way, Cornwall’s beaches provide a breath-taking, guaranteed tail wagging stroll.

We endeavour to take care of all your pooches needs during your stay at the Peventon as we understand that a holiday is not complete without your four-legged friend, if you are looking to book a short break in Cornwall, find out more about our dog friendly rooms or check out our Dog Friendly Escape Offer
