Dog-Friendly Summer Holidays in St Ives

Charlotte Ballam

Whether on holiday or at home, you only have to look around to see that more of us than ever now count a dog as one of the family and with so many options for dog friendly holidays, far fewer people are opting to holiday without their faithful friends. With no stressful ferry journey, flight or pet passport necessary, Cornwall is the ultimate destination this summer.

Dog friendly summer days in St Ives

With Cornwall's wealth of natural beauty, a summer holiday in St Ives lends itself perfectly to spending some time outside in the sea air. What better way to start the day than with a morning stroll as the town wakes up, followed by breakfast overlooking the crashing waves? With the new relaxed beach restrictions now in place, dogs can enjoy a good run along the sand all summer, as long as it's before 10am or after 6pm. With the beach off limits during the day, why not leave the hustle and bustle of St Ives behind and head out to join one of Cornwall's stunning coast paths? One of our favourite walks is the coast path to Zennor. Starting five minutes or so from your holiday cottage in St Ives, the six mile walk is full of awe inspiring views of the coast and from your cliff-top vantage point you may be lucky enough to spot seals, dolphins and even basking sharks. Once you've reached your destination you can quench your thirst and enjoy a spot of lunch at the picturesque (and dog friendly) Tinners Arms.
