Information for Dog Owners
There is a charge of £25 to £30 per pet per week or short break.
One of the best things about staying in a holiday cottage in Cornwall is that you can bring your dog with you. After all, holidays just aren’t the same without our four-legged friend!
That’s why the majority of Cornish Seaview Cottages properties are dog-friendly, especially when so many are located to some of the most stunning year round dog-friendly beaches!
We endeavour to encourage owners of properties whose cottage is also in good walking country to take dogs. There are some excellent sites to visit for discovering local walks around the county are www.iwalkcornwall.co.uk/walks/ and www.cornwalls.co.uk/walking
Please remember, all dogs are very welcome on the understanding that they are kept under control, exercised off the premises and are not permitted in the bedrooms or on the furniture. They should not be left in the property unsupervised as this can result in considerable damage to the property and distress to the pet.
For the comfort of future guests, please ensure that your pet’s flea treatment is up-to-date and that you clean up after your pet. We indicate in the description if a property has an enclosed garden to help you in your choice of property, however this does not necessarily mean that it is totally escape-proof to all pets – very few gardens would pass this test.
We should also point out that pets, possibly the Owners’, may have been in a property despite a notice in the description that pets are not allowed.
Before deciding to bring your dog in the summer you should bear in mind not every beach accepts them during the peak holiday time. For further information please contact the local tourist board or visit www.cornwall-beaches.co.uk/dog-friendly. The seasonal restrictions are usually from Easter Day or March / May until beginning of October. Some allow dogs in the early morning (before 7 or 8 depending) and late evening (usually after 7) – the sign at the entrance to the beach will specify.
In our larger properties we accept 2 dogs and on occasion we will take 3. Likewise in our smaller properties one dog is the normal rule, but occasionally we have accepted 2 dogs. Call us in the office and we will be happy to discuss your requirements.
