Less than a 10 minute drive from Whalesborough, Black Rock Beach welcomes dogs all year over, and has so much beauty and plenty of rocky outcrops to explore with your pooch. If you’re a surfer then you’ll also be pleased to hear that the beach’s consistent waves make it a hotspot for surfers, and there’s also a vast network of rock pools to explore with your littles ones.

Northcott Mouth is just 5 miles away from us at Whalesborough, and is open to dogs throughout the year. This untouched, but popular stretch of sand and rocky outcrops is the perfect spot to unwind with the Cornish wind in your face, and is totally surrounded by nature and wildlife.

Millook Haven Beach

Just over a 10 minute drive away from Whaleborough, Millook Haven Beach is open to dogs all year, and is another hotspot for experienced surfers in Cornwall. The beach is made up of large pebbles backed by dramatic cliffs, and is usually quiet due to limited parking and no facilities… ideal for a quiet day away from the beach crowds!

South West Coast Path

Dog walkers will be delighted to hear that we’re just a couple of miles away from the world-famous South West Coast Path. The breath-taking trail spans 630 miles from Dorset to Somerset and is the best way to discover the beaches, hidden coves and fishing villages that the North Cornish Coastline has to offer. We recommend heading to Millook, Dizzard, Crackington Haven, or Boscastle, as these destinations all offer breathtaking routes!

Bodmin Moor is a recognised Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty where a marshy landscape is littered with prehistoric settlements, hidden valleys and ancient oak trees just waiting to be discovered with your dog. Walk to Cornwall’s highest points, climb the black tors, and enjoy the wide range of rare plants, and protected wildlife such as otters, butterflies and songbirds.

After a long day’s adventure with your dog and the family under the Cornish sun, what more could you need than a charming local pub that welcomes your pooch with open arms? The good news is that we’re surrounded by characterful watering holes that will do just that… We particularly recommend The Bay View Inn, The Brendon Arms, and The Coachman’s Bar & Grill!
