Dog Friendly Cornwall Cottages - Explore The Roseland With Your Pooch

April 06, 2011 | Comments: 0 | Views: 87

For people whose furry friend is a member of the family, not to be left behind, there's good news on the horizon. There are plenty of dog friendly Cornwall cottages and B&Bs available these days for well behaved pooches. And the stunning Roseland Peninsula is fantastic dog walking territory. As well as a wonderful area for humans to explore!

The Roseland Peninsula is a little gem full of hidden beaches with soft, pale sand and dramatic, craggy rock formations. It's close to some of the county's favourite holiday hot spots Truro, Falmouth and St Austell. You can also reach the 'capital' of the peninsula, St Mawes, by ferry from Falmouth - a short yet exhilarating trip that your dog will love, complete with splashing waves, big skies and screaming gulls.

Scenic Tregony village, known as the gateway to the Roseland, was once a busy port. Today the river has disappeared, silted up completely by waste from local china clay and tin mines, and replaced by an unusually wide high street. There are numerous great walks along the nearby Ruan River, through lovely lush woodland with wildlife galore. Perfect for doggie exploring as long as yours knows how to behave around wildlife. And won't chase domestic farm animals. If you're in doubt keep your dog on a lead until you know what's what.

The last thing you want is trouble on your holiday. Cornwall self catering is a great way to let your dog join in with the fun without having to worry about bothering fellow guests. And keeping your furry friend on a lead just in case is the best way to steer clear of problems away from your holiday home. A long automatic feed leash makes things easier.

Veryan village is a timeless little place wreathed in legends, close to the ancient Carne Beacon, a bronze age burial mound. Great fun for dogs to run around. Plus there's Veryan castle, an iron age fort. The bones of history show through the land here at every turn.

Your dog's excellent sense of smell will help him or her enjoy the idyllic St Just-in-Roseland to the full! The church's pretty gardens stretch right down to the river, where there's enough exciting smells to keep even the liveliest dog happy for hours. Portloe is another feast for the doggie senses as well as their owners, a charming, vibrant fishing village famed for its shellfish, once the hub of the UK's pilchard industry. There are even nice beaches here to complement the peninsula's rugged rocky headlands. But the best beach in the area is probably Porthbeor Beach. It's sheltered and sandy, scattered with strange, weird and wonderful rock formations, perfect for the kids and dog to explore together. All in all for a dog friendly self catering holiday Cornwall scores high. And The Roseland comes close to the top!
