With so many great and varied walks in Cornwall your dogs really will be spoilt for choice with the abundance of beaches, coast paths and woodlands around. Here’s a selection of our favourite Cornish Dog Walks for you to explore while the suns shining…

Penrose and Loe Bar

From Helston you can follow Penrose Walk along the waterside all the way out to Loe Bar and the sea. From dense woodland, to a large sandy beach you have the option of just a short walk, or really making an afternoon of it. With Penrose House perched on the waters edge this area is unique with shaded woodland so close to the sea.

Follow our Loe Bar walk to take in the sights.

Tehidy Woods

A staple walk for most North Coast residents with such a vast area easily accessible from the A30. There’s plenty of parking and miles of wooded walks, including a little cafe if you’re partial to a midway brew…

Trencrom Hill

Climb one of the best view points in Cornwall, this rocky vantage point allows you to see both Godrevy Lighthouse and St Michaels Mounts within a 180 degree turn! There’s not many Cornish dog walks where you can all this coastline…

The Camel Trail

This wonderful stretch of level pathway takes you from Padstow along to Wadebridge and out to Bodmin. Pretty much all flat, and next to the Camel Estuary this is a popular spot with walkers, runners and cyclists.

If you don’t want to walk the whole way, you and your dog could always cheat…

Hayle Towans and Beach

We’ve got to admit a beach walk is our favourite. There’s just something about running full pelt down a sand dune chasing your pooch. Ours just love getting sandy then chasing their toys into the sea… With 3 miles of sand, if you time it right you may well be the only person on the beach!

Watch our boxer dogs on one of their favourite walks around Hayle.

The North Coast Path

It’s hard to pick the best bit, so why not branch out and explore the whole of the North Cornish Coast Path. There’s so many wonderful sections you could spend a whole year trying to find your favourite few miles. We love the majestic cliffs around St Agnes, Crantock and Bedruthan Steps just to name a few.

The Countryside Code is there to protect your dog and the livestock on our local farms, so remember to control your dog so that it doesn’t scare farm animals or wildlife. Keeping them on a lead is the best practice and follow any instructions or signs. Also, your dog may not be used to our Cornish Cliffs so please keep them on a lead when walking anywhere with a large drop.

Let us know your favourite Cornish Dog Walks, we’d love to see the photos!
