Dog-friendly self-catering properties in St Ives

Cornish Riviera Holidays offers a wide selection of dog-friendly properties.

St Ives is the perfect place to come with your pooch as it is in an area of outstanding natural beauty with great walks – inland, along the cliffs or on the beach – all with amazing scenery along the way.

Our dog-friendly self-catering accommodation in St Ives makes the ideal base to help you explore West Cornwall. Between 1st October and 14th May, all the beaches in St Ives are dog-friendly. All Blue Flag beaches in Cornwall, will have a seasonal dog restriction between 15th May to 30th September and between the hours of 10 am to 6pm. Other popular beaches will have the restriction in place between 1st July to 31st August and 10 am to 6 pm. Bamaluz is by Wheal Dream and Lambeth is right in front of our office and can be seen on our webcam. These two beaches welcome dogs all year round. Accessibility can be difficult as you do have to climb over rocks and the beaches do disappear when the tide is in. There is another all year round dog-friendly beach which is just over 45 minutes walk away from the Town centre which is Porth Kidney Sands (between Carbis Bay and Lelant). This is easily reached along the South West Coast Path or on the St Ives branch line, get off at Carbis Bay or Lelant Saltings railway stations.

There is so much more to St Ives than the beautiful beaches that are the perfect playground for dogs. Walk on the South West Coast Path, enjoy miles of stunning walking territory and take compulsory pit stops at watering holes on the route such as The Tinner’s Arms at Zennor or Gurnard’s Head at Treen. St Ives boasts plentiful dog-friendly pubs including The Sloop Inn, The Queens Hotel, The Golden Lion and The Castle.

There are also plenty of tourist attractions that are now dog-friendly around Cornwall such as the Eden Project, St Michael’s Mount, and the Minack Theatre.
