Talland Bay – Porthallow


A uniquely-designed boutique hotel – housing an eclectic collection of artwork – in a stunning location; savour mouth-wateringly good food, coupled with an extensive gin menu whilst taking in the spectacular scenery; this luxury dog-friendly retreat will be sure to sweep you away with its charms.

Exceptionally doggie friendly, Talland Bay Hotel describes itself as being ‘head and tails above the rest’ – with a jar of dog treats at reception and at the bar, plus a pamper pack for pooches left in the room, complete with Alfie & Molly locally baked treats, a feeding mat, fleecy blanket, microfiber towel, poo bags and bowls, a proper home-from-home awaits. Dogs are welcome in all but two of the 23 bedrooms as well as in all of the hotel’s main areas, including the lounge, bar and conservatory restaurant, with the exception of the fine-dining Terrace Restaurant Dogs are also welcome to explore the grounds, as well as Talland Bay beach itself.

Where to walk

With access to the South West Coastal path and an all year round dog-friendly beach, Talland Bay provides an enviable position to explore the South Cornish coast with your furry friend.

Grab a print out of local walks and attractions at reception and head to one of the many beautiful dog-friendly beaches in the area. Talland Bay beach is just one of a number of the south coast’s welcoming coves where you can walk (or swim) with your dog throughout the year. Other great spots for salty sea dogs are Gorran Haven, Hannafore (West Looe), Porthcurnick and Lantic Bay. Further afield, on the north coast, visit Watergate Bay, Perranporth, Crantock, Rock and Daymer Bay, ideal for long walks across expansive sands.

We love to walk the Coastal Path, 45-minutes to the charming fishing village of Polperro, taking in the breathtaking cliff top views along the way, before stopping at the Three Pilchards for a bite to eat by the log burner– the Sunday roast is sure to hit the spot after the undulating trek. If you fancy taking in a little culture on your travels, dogs are welcome at the Polperro Heritage Museum of Smuggling and Fishing or for your seafaring hounds, why not get out on the water with Fowey River Hire.

Dine with your dog

Dogs are welcome to dine with their owners in the conservatory restaurant and will be treated to their own freshly poached chicken dinner and aKittows Butchers’ sausage at breakfast time, now if that’s not being spoilt, we don’t know what is.

There is also a doggy treats menu for any non-resident diners, ideal for a tasty snack at lunchtime, supper or high tea.

For those wishing to dine out, both Daisy’s and the Old Sail Loft in Looe are ten-minutes drive – whilst further afield, the Blue Peter Inn, and Three Piltchards at Polperro and Havener’s in Fowey also provide great dog-friendly spots to enjoy local cuisine.

Doggie room rate

Bed and board for pets is £15 per night, for this contribution your dog will receive a sausage breakfast and a chicken dinner when joining you in the restaurant. Alternatively why not book a dedicated Wallace and Gromit break from £220 per night and pack your pooch for free!

What Partridge says

Talland Bay is an absolute Cornish delight, I felt like a pampered pooch my entire stay, with a yummy breakfast sausage, fresh chicken dinner and plenty of handmade treats along the way. With such fun grounds to play in, a comfy, spacious room and the lovely sands and shingle of Talland Bay beach, a bone’s throw away, my tail went into overdrive for this pawfect stay-cation.
