Dog Friendly Holiday Cottages Cornwall – Maybe you are like me and enjoy a break during a busy lifestyle but have a pet that you either have to get a relation or friend to look after or you have to fork out for an expensive kennel where you know that your ´ best friend ´ will hate every moment of his time there. Plus another factor is that you will be continually worrying about your dog knowing that he too is unhappy. This conundrum is a continual worry to the pet owner.
One solution would be to look for dog friendly holiday cottages Cornwall. I live in London so this is a bit of a jaunt but nowadays with the motorway systems in place I can be crossing the Tamar bridge into Cornwall in under four hours as long as I can get out of London reasonably easily. Once across the Tamar bridge though the roads can become difficult so I would recommend taking a holiday close to the border into Cornwall, somewhere like Looe or Polperro and there are several dog friendly holiday cottages Cornwall literally just under the Tamar bridge in Saltash where you and your best friend will find the locals friendly and the accommodation ideal.
Most accommodation will consist of one or two bedrooms, one bathroom a kitchen diner and a small ( comfortable ) sitting room. Where you and your dog will enjoy a welcome break. You will however have to take all your dogs requirements for the stay as these things will not be supplied even though the marketing literature states ‘dog friendly holiday cottages Cornwall’.
Dog Friendly Holiday Cottages Cornwall: Try Looe -
I have stayed several times in Saltash, and my cottage was in the shadow of the enormous and famous bridge built by Isambard kingdom Brunel for the Great Western train service. This is twinned with the much newer suspension bridge which has six lanes of traffic. The village has a train station interrupting the Paddington to Penzance line. A quite large and modern town centre is available to the visitor ( and his dog ) but the older part of the town closer to the River Tamar is more interesting. Another point of interest to the visitor is the local yacht club that races each Thursday and Saturday and it is quite a sight to see forty or fifty yachts jockeying for position on the start line in front of the club. There are excellent walks here along the river banks and beside the railway track. An ideal area to search for dog friendly holiday cottages Cornwall.
Another village that encourages dog friendly holiday cottages Cornwall is Looe. Looe Is about thirty minutes drive from the Tamar Bridge on the southern coast and is split into two halves East and West Looe with a short bridge separating the two. East Looe has most of the tourist shops, pubs and clubs , whilst East Looe is mainly residential, and the houses tower up over the town. During the summer the streets are packed with holiday makers. driving in and out of the village, it can be very awkward so be prepared to be delayed and leave plenty of time is your destination is important. There is a small beach again crowded in summer but totally yours and your dogs in the winter. At one time Looe was the centre for shark fishing in the UK but over the years the large catches of Portbeagle sharks became less and less until in the end the fleet of sport boats died out. Now you can still go out and do a little mackerel fishing leaving the few remaining sharks to enjoy life a little more.
Dog friendly holiday cottages Cornwall seem to be springing up all over the place and as the business of pet friendly holidays becomes more popular so the industry provides more property for this type of holiday. I think this is one of the best things to have happened to the industry but obviously if you don´t have pets then you have to be more tolerant of the people that do. So if you do have an allergy to early morning walkers with energetic noisy dogs these dog friendly holiday cottages Cornwall are not for you. A friend of mine recently came back from a weekend away more stressed than when he left London and swore he would research his accommodation more fully in the future.
I have made sure that my pet insurance covers my dog in a different location some policies state that the pet is not insured away from the policy address. Probably this is because if a pet got lost away from the area it was familiar with, it would stay that way. Remember also to take any medication you and your ´ best friend will require ´.
