A selection of our favourite dog walks in Cornwall
Whether you’re looking for a stroll across the beach, a long walk in a wooded valley, a hike across the moors, or an invigorating walk on stunning coastal paths, Cornwall’s got something for you. There are so many new sights and smells to discover, and new friends for your dog to make.
With over 250 acres of peaceful woods and 9 miles of paths to explore, Tehidy is the largest area of woodland in West Cornwall. The woodland walks are well-signposted and enjoy beautiful views throughout the park. There is even a lake for your dog to splash in. We recommend the circular walk which follows a level path around the estate. If you’re looking for something more challenging you can try a trail with steeper hills!

Starting at Marazion, this walk passes through Penzance and Newlyn, ending up in Mousehole. The walk has some fantastic views over St Michael’s Mount and the Atlantic Ocean. If you’re lucky you may even spot some dolphins! Why not make a day of it, and explore each town as you pass through.

Trelissick Park is a beautiful place to walk the dog in Cornwall.
