Enjoy a bright and cheerful seaside vibe at this snug coastal retreat, nestled in the heart of a charming fishing port; at the hub of the town, Rick Stein’s Café provides a cosy base to explore the bustling harbour and enjoy freshest signature-seafood dishes, with your four-legged friend kicking at your heels.
Dogs are welcome in all three rooms, where they will receive a Chalky’s Pals fleecy dog blanket, Olive the Octopus dog toy, a Mason Cash water bowl and organic dog treats, along with a dog guide to dog friendly walks, beaches and restaurants in the area and if that’s not enough to get your dog’s tail wagging, we don’t know what will!
Located on Middle Street in the heart of Padstow – a pretty working fishing village on the north Cornish coast of the Camel Estuary – Rick Stein’s Café is a stone’s throw from the bustling harbour, ideally positioned to discover Padstow – home to beautiful beaches, the Camel Estuary and the Cornish Coastal Path. A ten-minute walk will take you to the beach where you and your four-legged friend can pick up the passenger ferry across to Rock, running at regular intervals throughout the day.
Alternatively, enjoy circular walks from Padstow, either via Crugmeer, Trevone and Stepper Point (seven miles) or for a shorter option, via Hawker’s Cove (four miles). Another popular route, taking in some wonderful coastal scenery along the way is Padstow to Polzeath, via Rock and St Enodoc Church (around three and a half miles).
Dogs are able to dine with their owners in the Café courtyard, where you will find aptly positioned outdoor heaters, as well as the conservatory area and the roof-top terrace of the Seafood Restaurant and the cosy bar dining rooms of St Petroc’s Bistro.
The Cornish Arms at St Merryn, ten-minutes drive from the harbour, also welcomes dogs, offering a classic British pub menu.
Rooms from £125 per night
There is a £30 charge for the first night, and £5 for any additional nights. Two dogs will be £50 for first night and £10 for additional nights. Three dogs are £65 for first night and £15 for each additional night
The cosy café provides a comfortable base just a ball’s throw away from the harbour, offering plenty of opportunity to get out and about, to explore one of my favourite coastal spots and one of the most dog-friendly towns I’ve journeyed to so far.
