Walks from Talland Bay Hotel: Exploring South West Coast Path
Hotels that take dogs in Cornwall are great, but they’re even better when they have such instant access to the South West Coast Path. Be careful when you’re at the beach and check whether dogs are allowed to go off lead, as rules can vary depending on the time of year.
The terrain is relatively steep here – we had a young toddler in a backpack which was ideal, but younger children could just do shorter walks. The captivating sea views will provide an excellent distraction, and you can stop to try and spot dolphins and seals as you go. The closest beach to the hotel is down a hill, but you’ll find other family friendly beaches close by.
There are so many incredible walks along Cornwall’s South Coast, and Talland Bay Hotel has the ideal spot to explore this more secluded South East spot.
