The Fowey Estuary Walk:
This walk runs along the estuary and is perfect for dogs that love to swim. Starting from the Bodinnick Ferry car park, the trail takes you through quiet lanes and woodland paths with stunning views of Fowey and Polruan. The walk takes approximately 2 hours and covers around 7.5 kilometres. Remember to bring a water bottle for your dog, as there are no drinking fountains along the way.
Polkerris Coastal Walk:
If you're looking for a shorter walk but still want to enjoy stunning scenery, then the Polkerris Coastal Walk is perfect for you and your furry friend. This easy walk offers panoramic views of St Austell Bay and takes you through a picturesque fishing village where you'll find plenty of dog-friendly pubs and cafes. The walk is around 3.5 kilometres.
Cardinham Woods is famous for its walking trails, from easy routes to long trails with steep inclines and picture-perfect views. One of our favourites is the Callywith Wood walk where you will discover a beautiful view point where you can see up the valley of Cradinham Warer to its source on Bodmin Moor.
The South West Coastal Path:
The South West Coastal Path is a challenging and adventurous walk that covers over 1,000 kilometres along the Cornish coastline. However, you don't need to walk the entire path to enjoy it with your dog! The section between Fowey and Menabilly is a popular choice and offers breathtaking views. This section of the path covers around 8 kilometres.
