Bringing the Dogs

Looking to holiday with your pooch? Whalesborough is the perfect dog-friendly destination! Our cottages are set up to welcome your family pet and we are in the very best location to explore with the hound from dog-friendly beaches to miles and miles of spectacular countryside.  That’s after you’ve exhausted our 500 acres of course! 

500 acres to explore

Staying onsite? There’s plenty for you and the dog to discover right outside your Whalesborough front door.

Large indoor crates

Heading out and need to leave your four-legged friend at home? We supply a range of dog crates for peace of mind whilst you’re out and about.


If you’ll be driving to us in an EV, we have four super-fast charging points onsite. There is a fee for charging, which is handled through a very easy-to-use app.


Don’t fancy cooking? Our new dog-friendly bistro and tea rooms overlook the lake and are a lovely spot to grab a bite to eat.

Explore with your dog

There are more dog friendly beaches in North Cornwall than anywhere else in the South West. There are some spectacular walks to do; head south towards Millook, Dizzard, Crackington Haven and Boscastle or North to Bude and the dramatic cliffs of Morwenstow and beyond.

If you fancy somewhere a bit more in-land, Bodmin Moor is only 20 minutes drive away.

Bay View Inn

Dog friendly Bay View Inn is a great spot to enjoy a cold drink and watch the sun go down with the whole family.

Black Rock

Black Rock Beach sits on the south side of Widemouth Bay. You and your dog will love exploring the vast sandy stretch.
