Take your dog out on woodland walks this autumn

September 19th, 2016

Autumn is a beautiful time to get out with your dog, and in Cornwall, there is more than just the beaches for playing out in. Our dog-friendly Cornwall cottages are the perfect place for a short autumn break with your four-legged friend!

Take a look below at some of the best woodland walks to take your dog on, many of which are close by our luxury cottages:

Cardinham Woods, Bodmin

Not far from Bodmin, this area of woodland is run by the Forestry Commission. Through the woods there are several marked out walks, ranging from easy to challenging routes. There are small streams and leafy paths that are great for the dog to play around in too. Along the way, you can also find Woods Cafe which offers freshly baked cakes and tea and is also dog-friendly.

Lanhydrock, Bodmin

The woods around this grand estate is a haven for dogs and walkers. From the car park, you can set out on woods along the River Fowey around the estate. Grab a map of the various trails you can take from the reception or cafe, and be aware you can’t take dogs into the main garden, but dogs are welcome at the Stable Cafe.

Tehidy Woods, Camborne

At Tehidy Woods there are 9 miles and over 250 acres of woodland for you and your dog to enjoy walks through. With so many routes to choose from, you will definitely enjoy exploring the stunning woodlands. Look out for the ancient tree with a twisted trunk, the little flower garden and you can also access the South West Coast Path from the woods near Godrevy.

Trelissick Gardens, Truro

Run by the National Trust, the parkland area around the main garden is very welcoming to dogs. The three-mile Woodland Walk is lovely, taking you all the way to the Fal estuary and along the river bank. The main gardens do not allow dogs, but the parkland surrounding it is perfect for an afternoon out with the dog.
