At Duchy Holidays we know that dogs are just as much a part of the family as anyone else, and they love a holiday as much as you do! That's why Perranporth and St Agnes in Cornwall, with wide open countryside and an abundance of dog friendly holiday cottages, is the perfect destination for you and your four-legged friends.
Miles of golden, sandy dog friendly beach awaits, along with coastal paths and beautiful Cornish countryside providing miles of walks for dogs, a paradise for your pooch!
Around Perranporth you’ll find many pet friendly cafes, bars and restaurants. Including a cafe serving doggie ice cream! You’ll even find a dog washing station by the beach so you can hose down your hound after a busy day on the beach.
From cosy cottages to beachside apartments, you're sure to the find the self-catering property to make the perfect holiday for you and your dog.
Holiday homes for dogs:
Just a couple of examples of our pet friendly cottages are Cherry Tree Cottage on the Cornish coast at Chapel Porth, surrounded by two acres of countryside for dog walking, and coastal walks. A few yards from the sea is Sandbay No.3, just minutes from Perranporth's vast beach and the stunning South West Coast Path along which your mutt can run for miles.
Some of our properties do have restrictions on what time of year, which breed, and how many dogs can stay, so please check the property descriptions carefully and contact us if you're in any doubt. Please note that only dogs over one year of age are allowed in any property.
If you do bring your pet on holiday with you, please don't let them get onto the furniture, and we also ask that you don't leave them alone in a property. You may find it useful to book your dog in with a friendly local dog sitter. We recommend Salty Sea Dogs.
Please be aware that sometimes a higher refundable security deposit may be required when bringing a dog on holiday.

The main beach in St Agnes, Trevaunance Cove, welcomes dogs on leads. It’s only a small beach. For longer walks, a visit to the beach can be combined with a walk along the South West Coast Path.
