Post-Lockdown Places with your Pooch
The moment we have all been waiting for - the time in which we can begin to regain a sense of normality and visit our favourite places with our four-legged friends once again. With many restaurants, pubs and visitor attractions opening their doors again from the 12th of April, we can finally grab a coffee at our local cafe with our beloved friends and family and enjoy the great food, drinks and sights our Cornish coastline has to offer.
Home to some of the best eateries and attractions in the country, Cornwall really is an excellent place for both you and your dogs. With dog-friendly spots across the county, your furry friends can enjoy socialising too and getting back to meeting their best friends whilst we meet ours. So with restrictions lifting across the country, here’s our top spots to pay a visit to this Spring.
Trevaskis Farm, Hayle
When it comes to pawfect places to eat and drink in Cornwall, there really is nothing better than getting your chops around a traditional Cornish breakfast. Made with produce from their onsite farm, you won’t find a breakfast that tastes fresher than that at Trevaskis. Despite being open for takeaways previously, the true delights of sitting on Trevaskis grounds whilst enjoying their ravishing range of food and drink can finally be enjoyed again.
With their own Pick your Own fruit and vegetable patches and fresh milk stations from local dairies, Trevaskis Farm really does celebrate the joys of British farming and you can get a taste of what Trevaskis has to offer with your canine companion by your side. From the 12th April, outdoor seating is available around their grounds so you and 5 of your nearest and dearest can enjoy their fabulous food and delicious desserts with your four-legged friends by your side. When it comes to lavish lunches, Trevaskis Farm is definitely a top choice for us.
Cornish Seal Sanctuary, Gweek
Finally able to open their doors again on the 12th April, this Marine Conservation Site is one of Cornwall’s must-see attractions, even if you are a seasoned local. Home to amazing work, dedicated to saving seals across the country, this is more than just a place where you can gaze your eyes upon marine life.
This dog-friendly attraction welcomes furry friends of all ages and breeds just as long as they are on a lead and is an amazing place to visit with the smaller members of your family too. At the sanctuary you can see wildlife such as seals, penguins and even otters and acts as a permanent home for the seals rescued throughout the country who need a little extra TLC.
With 42 acres of land to enjoy and doggy treats available at reception for your furry friend, a trip to the Seal Sanctuary definitely needs to be on yours and your dog’s must-see list this Spring.
Lewinnick Lodge, Newquay
After over a year of being stuck indoors and unable to experience the wonders of the outdoor world, if you fancy a little luxury post-lockdown then a trip to Lewinnick Lodge is just what you and your four-legged friend need this Summer.
Located right on the edge of Newquay’s gorgeous coastline, you won’t miss any of the spectacular sights this surfing town has to offer when you relax in this lavishing lodge. Fully re-opening their doors on the 17th May, this is one hotel that you definitely have to visit if a trip to Newquay is on your bucket list.
With dogs welcome to stay in their range of pooch-friendly rooms and welcome throughout their bar and outside areas, you can enjoy a magical meal with a luxurious view of the Atlantic and wind down from the crazy life we have all led over the past 12 months. Combining lavish luxury and stunning scenery, there really is nothing like Lewinnick Lodge.
The Watering Hole, Perranporth
Being the UK’s only bar on the beach, the Watering Hole is definitely one of Cornwall’s top places to visit with your four-legged friend this Spring. Located right in the heart of Perranporth’s Beach, this idyllic bar and restaurant is one you and your pooch will love time and time again. Your dog is lovingly welcomed inside the bar, the dining area and the terrace, there is no experience quite like it.
From Sunday Carveries to Beach BBQ’s, you and your dog won’t be short of food and refreshments at this eatery. With Perranporth beach welcoming dogs on leads all year around, there is no better place to watch the oceans, get their paws sandy and grab a magical meal than at the Watering Hole.
