Explore Holywell Bay in Cornwall with your dog from our dog-friendly accommodation
Just 5 miles south of the surfing mecca of Newquay and its fabulous selection of beaches lies the coastal village of Holywell in Cornwall, the perfect destination for a dog-friendly holiday. Close to a huge sandy beach backed by marram-grassed dunes, our Holywell Bay dog-friendly accommodation is just the place for families with a dog in tow to spend warm summer days and enjoy brisk winter walks. Dominated by two rugged headlands, Holywell Bay offers excellent shelter so that you don’t feel the worst of the elements.
The area is famous for its two islands, the ‘Gull Rocks’ and its dolphins, though you’ll want to make sure that Fido doesn’t try to swim out to experience them up close! Encourage them instead to splash about in the shallow tidal river that crosses the beach, a popular spot for children and pups.
From Holywell, you're well-placed to explore the delights of dog-friendly Cornwall. Fit canines should try out the 10-mile return walk from our dog-friendly Holywell cottages to Perranporth along the South West Coastal Path, and if that’s not enough, continue on to the St. Agnes Heritage Coast with its pretty bays and hidden coves. The village itself has shops, a café and two inns although, with our superb selection of dog-friendly cottages in Holywell Bay, you’ll want to head home to enjoy some of the fabulous fresh local seafood on your own BBQ in the garden.
