Start your day with a walk along the South West Coast Path, a stunning walking route that hugs the coastline of South East Cornwall. Choose a section of the path that is dog-friendly and offers some beautiful views. Some good options include the stretch from Lantic Bay to Polruan, or from Talland Bay to Polperro.

After your walk, stop for breakfast at a dog-friendly café or pub. A good option is the Talland Bay Hotel.


Drive to the Lost Gardens of Heligan, a stunning botanical garden with over 200 acres of grounds to explore. The gardens are dog-friendly, as long as your dog is kept on a lead. Explore the jungle-like canopy walk, the Victorian productive gardens, and the farm animals.

Stop for lunch at the Heligan Kitchen, which offers a range of locally sourced and organic food options.


Head to the beach for some afternoon relaxation and fun. Some good dog-friendly options include Porthpean Beach, Carlyon Bay Beach, and Whitsand Bay Beach. Make sure to check the local restrictions and guidelines for dogs on the beach before you go.

Finish off your day with a sunset stroll along the beach, or perhaps a drink at a dog-friendly beachside bar.


I hope this itinerary gives you some ideas for a dog-friendly day out in South East Cornwall! Just remember to check local regulations and guidelines for dogs in any public areas you plan to visit.
