We all love taking our four-legged friends on adventures with us and where better than to explore the North Cornish coast. Here are some ideas of things to do while you visit the area with your pooch.

Tackle the local coastal paths

Lace up your walking boots, grab a hot flask of tea or coffee and head for the coastal paths. You and your doggo will love the views and fun terrain along the way. Read about walks recommended by John Bray Cornish Holidays staff here.

Visit the local dog-friendly pubs and restaurants

For pubs in Rock, try the Mariners Public House by Paul Ainsworth for dog-friendly dining downstairs and traditional pub food and great ales. The Pityme Inn is another must-visit, just up Rock Road.

Polzeath offers The Oystercatcher Bar and Restaurant, a trendy spot that you and your pooch will love, and the Waterfront located right on the beach, amazing views and relaxing atmosphere.

Over in Port Isaac, The Golden Lion and The Mote are both dog-friendly and perfect for a lazy afternoon in the pub.

Further afield, St Kew Inn is filled with character and charm with a cosy open fire perfect for warming up after exploring the coast.

Enjoy the dog-friendly beaches

Rock beach is dog-friendly all year round and runs along the Camel Estuary, ideal for a early morning or afternoon walk.

Polzeath is a great dog walking spot with very low tides that create the perfect landscape to walk your doggo. Just keep in mind the dog ban between May and the 1st of October.

Porthilly Cove is another wonderful walk with beautiful views and a small rivier, good for swimming and jumping in the waves.
