Dogs love self-catering holidays too and Porthleven makes the perfect location for them. With dog-friendly beaches, coastal and woodland walks and dog-friendly pubs and restaurants there is plenty to do.
Here are our top 5 activities to do with your dog on holiday in Porthleven.
Porthleven and Loe Bar
Right on our doorstep, the beautiful Porthleven beach will take you all the way to Loe Bar at low tide. No dogs between Easter and October but the times have been changed to give an extra 3 hours when dogs are allowed. 9am – 6pm. There are no restrictions on dogs from the other side of Blue Buoys steps (at the Lifeguards Hut)
Other local beaches:
Plenty of walks around Cornwall’s largest natural lake. Lovely views down the valley to Loe Bar from the Penrose Cafe. Accessible from Porthleven and Helston boating lake, the area offers open parkland, woodland and coastline. Find out more: www.nationaltrust.org.uk
