One of the things we get asked frequently is for luxury lodges close to the beach that accept pets too! Or high-end holiday homes near scenic coastal paths or other great walking routes for dogs.
Thankfully there are now plenty of great options for pet friendly holidays in fantastic lodges and holiday properties.
We have set out below a few of our favourites from the South West coast.
The gorgeous interiors combined with the dog-friendly locations make the best holidays for the whole family. If you’re looking for somewhere that has a fishing lake that allows pets, take a look at our guide here.
With a glorious position above golden Praa Sands, Spindrift is a unique holiday home. The shimmering sea is the ideal backdrop to relaxing evenings in the hot tub surrounded by bubbles.
The interior is modern and has a lovely laid back feel framed by large windows making the most of the amazing views.
We love the spacious decked terrace area where you can make the most of al fresco coastal living, watch the surfers while you enjoy a coffee and breathe in the sea air.
Just a short stroll from Spindrift will take you to one of the prettiest beaches in Cornwall’s coast so don’t forget your bucket and spade! The shallow waters are perfect for a splash about.
Your dog will love this holiday too! In the quieter months Praa Sands is dog friendly and you can enjoy some gorgeous scenic walks along the South West Coast Path at any time of the year!
