This quirky hotel in the heart of artsy Penzance has a selection of dog-friendly rooms where pup-ready beds, bowls and Lily’s Kitchen organic treats await your arrival. You’ll be well placed for walks, too – the coast path is a short stroll away, or head inland for Cornwall’s woodlands and parks. Rooms are individually styled – think freestanding copper bathtubs, wood-burning stoves and vibrant palm prints. Downstairs, the Cornish Barn serves excellent food with a relaxed atmosphere.

Pooches are welcome at this former smugglers’ inn that’s been converted into a cosy, welcoming hotel by the sea. Tucked away in the sleepy fishing village of Portloe, it has the South West Coast Path right on its doorstep, perfect for walkies. Dogs are allowed in rooms, excluding cottages, as well as the bar area, stoked with open fires in winter – perfect for curling up in front of. The restaurant serves top-notch food (boat-fresh crab, meaty monkfish and seared scallops) in a non-stuffy atmosphere.

It may have a luxurious feel with country-style interiors, manicured grounds and a splendid spa, but dogs are welcome to come along for the ride at Penventon Park. You can’t bring your hound into the smart Galleries restaurant, but they are welcome in the ground-floor Superior Family Rooms, which have patio doors that open onto private gardens. You can also borrow dog beds, towels and bowls, so no need to heft yours all the way from home.

Dogs are greeted with a treat on arrival at Jamaica Inn, which is located in Bodmin amid some woof-worthy dog-walking routes. Take the pooch up Cornwall’s highest hill, Brown Willy, or try a gentle amble to Dozmary Pool – allegedly home to the Lady of the Lake of Arthurian legend – where you can spot lapwings and curlews. The inn allows dogs in its Smugglers bar, plus some deluxe en-suite bedrooms where you can summon a dog bed and bowl.

    You’ll be spoilt for choice when it comes to dog-walking routes with a stay at stately Commonwood Manor in Looe. Start with a saunter beside the river, which runs to East Looe Beach. Then branch out to Talland and pretty Polperro along the coastal path. Built in the style of an Italian villa with large rooms, the Victorian-era hotel gets serious tail wags for its dog-friendly, designated rooms and tiered garden for hounds to romp around in (though the outdoor pool is for humans only). Breakfast is taken in the dining room overlooking the river and valley, or on the garden terrace.
