Enjoy this light, bright and bold Victorian boutique hotel with your four-legged friend at your side. Padstow Harbour Hotel has prime position in the popular fishing port, with views across the Camel Estuary, towards Rock. The modernised space cleverly fuses a little luxury with lashings of coastal charm, providing a cheerful seaside escape for all the family, including your dog!
There are nine dog-friendly rooms offered, with bowls and treats provided.
Dogs are welcome on the terrace, though the hotel asks if your four-legged friends could kindly be kept on a leash. It’s worth noting that dogs are not allowed in the restaurant, bar, lounge areas or other public areas, with the exception of service dogs.
Experiences lie at the heart of the Harbour’s ethos, with guests invited to relax, as well as get out and about, providing activities from surf lessons and cycle rides to fishing trips and picnics, with the team making them effortless, with sumptuous spreads made up by the chefs, as well as transfers to the varying locations.
The hotel is ideally positioned for discovering Padstow with your dog in tow, home to beautiful beaches, the Camel Estuary and the Cornish Coast Path. This charming working fishing port sits at the head of the Camel River, home to ample dog-friendly sandy beaches and National Trust properties.
Padstow offers a prime spot to watch the ebb and flow of harbour life, with a passenger ferry across to fashionable Rock, running at regular intervals throughout the day. One of our favourite walks is a beautiful route from Padstow town to Harbour Cove. It takes in Prideaux Place – once the site of a monastery, now boasting a great cafe overlooking the deer park – before continuing to the Doom Bar, where hundreds of ships have been wrecked, returning to Padstow along the beaches of Harbour Cove, Hawker’s Cove and St George’s Cove.
You can also hire bikes from Padstow Cycle Hire, and peddle alongthe Camel Valley Trail, with your furry friend in a trailer – trace the river inland five-miles to Wadebridge, and seven-miles to Bodmin.
Dine on the terrace with your dog during warmer months and enjoy freshest Cornish produce with an emphasis on fish and seafood, washed down with a Harbour cocktail, local craft beer or locally made gin. Dishes are light, seasonal, and locally-sourced, showcasing the region’s flavours.
If like us, you refuse to dine without your furry friend at your side, Padstow is full of dog-friendly dining spots. Some of our favourites include Prawn on The Lawn, serving small plates of freshest fish and seafood, the Shipwrights Inn, and The Cornish Arms for pub classics. Stein’s Café, where you can drop into the dog-friendly courtyard for a freshly cooked breakfast, morning pastries or a light lunch, and The Mariners, situated a stick’s throw away on Rock – the ideal spot for a delicious Sunday Lunch or seasonal supper. There’s also the popular Golden Lion in the heart of the town and the family-run Quarryman, recognised for its fresh gastro pub fare.
There is a charge of £15 per night, per dog. This charge does not apply to service dogs.
Padstow is my ultimate favourite spot for a holidog, it’s super dog-friendly with so many great beaches and walks
to discover, plus so many furry friends everywhere! My humans love that so many of the eateries are dog friendly, meaning I get to enjoy them too. The Harbour Hotel made us a great picnic to enjoy on the estuary and I even got to travel in a trailer attached to my human’s bike – a great mode of transport for a lazy day!
