Dog Friendly Holidays in Cornwall

pets welcome at rosehill lodges cornwall

We have been assessed and have met the criteria required for pets by Visit England.

Your holiday would never be complete if your pet is left at kennels wondering where everyone has gone! We are pleased to welcome you and your pet with us here at Rosehill Lodges, for our Dog Friendly Holidays in Cornwall. We also have several lodges which are strictly pet free.


Dogs are welcome at Rosehill Lodges

Molly the border collie

Rosehill is a quiet area surrounded by woodland. We are away from the traffic and our small site is perfect for you to relax in a secluded spot along with your family’s best friend. With our grassy areas for you to quietly exercise your dog and with close proximity to the open countryside you’ll be assured of a top quality destination.

Are there any dog walking areas nearby?

Ziggy and owner

There are valley walks and clifftop ambles all within easy reach. The South West coast path starts five minutes walk away and the old mineral tramway can get you from one coast to the other if you are up for a long day out. The National Trust and other private gardens may allow pets on leads but always check before you go! Remember to observe the Countryside Code.

Dog Friendly Beaches

There are also many dog friendly beaches around the county and some with seasonal restrictions but there is always somewhere for you and the family pet to enjoy days out in Cornwall.

Dog Hamper

On your arrival there will be small welcome hamper for your dog that includes:

  • Small bowl
  • Fleece blanket
  • Towel

Local  Beach Restrictions

There is a Cornwall County seasonal beach dog ban on Porthtowan’s beach. This means the tidal area of the beach, from the sea to the high tide mark(or in line with the signs).

These restrictions will be in place from 15 May to 30 September, four and a half months, and dogs not permitted on the beach between 10am and 6pm.

You are however permitted on the dune area immediately behind the beach and the coastal footpaths and this works well for our guests and their dogs. The Blue Bar, Unicorn and the Beach Cafe welcome dogs on leads and have water bowls outside for your dogs to have a drink.


Ok, please go ahead and book your lodge and we look forward to seeing you and your favourite friend here at Rosehill!
