About Cornish Holidays In Looe With Dogs

Looe is Cornwall’s second largest fishing port. It is actually made up of East Looe, a bustling fishing harbour and quieter West Looe, connected by an impressive seven-arched bridge over the River Looe. River taxis run regularly between each quarter. You and your pooch will probably become regulars crossing the river either by boat or over the bridge.

Another way to travel and really see the countryside and coast at its best is a trip on the Looe Valley Line that links the market town of Liskeard with Looe by way of the East Looe River Valley. The journey showcases densely wooded valleys teeming with wildlife that open up to stunning estuary views as the river heads towards the sea. It is a hit with the younger set and birdwatchers alike because the river is home to little egrets, grey herons, oystercatchers, and curlews.

For beer boffins, there is the Real Ale Trail. You can download a stamp sheet, board the Looe Valley Line and embark on a hop-on-hop-off “hops tour” of pubs, starting at Looe, stopping off at Causeland, and ending up in Liskeard. You will sample the best ales in the region and your fur baby is welcome to watch and is likely to receive a lot of fuss and treats at each pub stop.

Once you’ve found bearings by navigating the labyrinth of cobbled lanes above the harbour at Looe, take a walk along Banjo Pier. This is a great viewpoint to watch the trawlers returning with their catch. Across the bay is Looe Island, 22 acres of conservation land that can sometimes be accessed at low tide. There are plenty of attractions close to all Looe pet friendly cottages.

South West Coast Path

Pick up the South West Coast path at Looe Cornwall and take this fairly moderate, pet friendly 5.7-mile hike to Polperro. The trail takes in the traditional fishing villages that have been so important to the local economy for more than 1,000 years

Rover will love the rock pools and you will appreciate the Looe scenery and the ancient history along this walk. It takes in a sixth-century monastery and eventually ends at the pretty harbour town of Polperro with a few dog-friendly pubs for refuelling.

Dog Friendly Glass Bottom Boat Trips

Set off from Looe Harbour for a “Boatzer” experience. You will see the fish swim beneath your feet and marine life as you have never seen it before.

You can take the 45-minute pet friendly trip to Polperro, or you could extend your sea excursion by an extra four hours. This will take you along the coast to Fowey, past west Looe and Plaidy Beach, allowing you and your pooch ashore for some sustenance at one of the pubs and cafes in this charming harbour town.

Smuggling Museum Tour

This is one of the few museums in England that allows your dog throughout. The Polperro Heritage Museum of Smuggling and Fishing is fascinating for the whole family. Paws are permitted, but Rover is requested not to spend a penny on the exhibits that cover the floor.

It is located right on the harbour not far from Looe in an old pilchard processing factory and contains an insight into how contraband formed a large part of the day-to-day lives of villagers’ ancestors. There are also exhibits on famous RNLI sea rescue missions in the area.

Last Word

The joy of the area is that there are not just miles and miles of sandy, unspoiled beaches; there are the clifftops and the countryside beyond all close to dog-friendly cottages in Looe. Another plus is that a holiday of sea, sun, surf, and sand need not mean leaving Mutley at home. Most of the pubs and restaurants are happy to welcome sandy paws, and you will never struggle to find a pet-friendly cottage in Looe either.

Whether you are looking for a penthouse apartment located close to the west Looe Key side, a spacious and comfortable apartment in Looe town centre or quirky fisherman’s cottages including hot tubs.

Nearby Spindrift offers charming accommodation also whether your preference is a spacious bungalow, semi-detached cottage, or superb first-floor apartment. Find plenty dog friendly self catering properties in Cornwall that are right for your family, four-legged members included, and book a Looe holiday that is certainly going to blow away the cobwebs and make you wonder why you had ever crossed the channel for fun in the sun.

Pubs & Cafes

The area around these cottages boasts two beautiful beaches – Plaidy and Hannafore – that offer something for everyone. Whether you’re an avid beach-goer or just looking to relax with a good book, these beaches have something unique to offer.

Plaidy Beach is a beautiful little beach surrounded by cliffs in Looe and accessed via a footpath from the nearby coastal road and parking lot. Be aware there is a tiny beach exposed during high tide, so check the Tide Tables before leaving for a visit. The beach is good for Fido all year round, and there are no seasonal lifeguards on duty.

Hannafore Beach offers visitors a sandy, shingle beach about a mile from West Looe. At low tide, the reef is exposed, creating unique rock pools with stunning views of St George’s Island. The beach has plenty of space for sunbathing and swimming and facilities such as toilets, showers and first aid services nearby.

Like Plaidy Beach, Hannafore too is dog friendly all year round, and there are no seasonal lifeguards on duty here either.


Looe cottages are located on England’s South Coast and proudly boasts a variety of pubs that are dog-friendly and offer stunning views of the sea. Let’s look at some of the best pubs locally where you and your furry friend can relax and enjoy the scenery.

Geevor Tin Mine is another popular attraction located between Pendeen and Trewellard villages. This tin mine museum is interesting and educational for the whole family; dogs on leads are welcome everywhere except for the shop, café, and underground mine.

Healeys Cornish Cyder Farm is an exciting spot for those who want to sample some locally made cider from Cornish apples. On top of that, it has great outdoor spaces where visitors can pet farm animals or free-roaming peacocks.
