Visit Whalesborough with your dog this autumn

After the summer crowds disperse and the kids go back to school, Cornwall quickly transforms into an autumn wonderland of stunning scenery, ruby red sunsets, and breath-taking coastlines! To add to this, more than seventy beaches lift their dog restrictions through the autumn months, giving pooches even more golden sand and whitewash to run wild in.

In our minds, this makes autumn the perfect time of year to visit the county with your dog, and it just so happens that at Whalesborough, we offer plenty of dog-friendly features to make your decision to book, even easier!

500 acres to explore

Although we’re fortunate to be surrounded by coast paths, wild moorland, and dog-friendly beaches, guests at Whalesborough and their dogs are spoilt with 500 acres of private Cornish countryside to explore, and it’s all right at their front door! Meaning that you wouldn’t have to pack the car up and head out, instead just step outside and embark on a long walk in the fresh sea air, before returning to your cosy cottage…

Whalesborough Pooch Packs

At Whalesborough we understand that your dog is part of the family, which is why we do everything we can to make sure that they’re as comfortable and happy as possible during their Cornish adventure!

That’s why our Luxury Pooch Packs will be waiting for your dog on arrival and contain all the essentials and treats to help them settle in and enjoy their stay from day one, giving you one less reason to worry, and more opportunity to unplug and enjoy your autumn getaway.

Enclosed private gardens

We believe that as well as total privacy, the safety of your dog is essential, which is why almost all the properties at Whalesborough offer enclosed gardens for your dog to relax and play in unsupervised.

During your Cornish getaway, you don’t want to spend the day worrying about where the dog is, whose garden they’re invading, what road they’re running across… Our fenced gardens put an end to these worries, and once again allow you to unwind for your autumn break.

Whalesborough Dog Showers

Yep, you heard us right, dog showers! Almost all dog owners have come home from a walk with an unrecognisable, wet and muddy dog, and that’s no different here in Cornwall, especially during the autumn! That’s why we provide dog showers onsite to ensure that your four-legged friend hops back into bed feeling fresh and clean, with all the mud, sea salt, and sand washed away.

Dog sitting

As if our Dog Showers and Pooch Packs weren’t enough, at Whalesborough we go the extra mile by offering our guests an on-site Dog Sitting service through our friends at Coastal Canines. So if you fancy some time alone, or you’re heading out to a local restaurant for dinner, you can do so with the peace of mind that your dog is being looked after by an experienced professional.

Soft furnishings

Like we said, at Whalesborough we consider your doggy to be part of the family, which is why we’ve furnished our cottages to be as dog-friendly and comfortable as possible. On arrival, you’ll find blankets, sofa covers, and throws dotted around the property to ensure that everyone can relax, including the pooch… in luxury!

Autumn really is a magical time to visit Cornwall, and we hope that our dog friendly features here at Whalesborough have made your decision to book even easier.
