Dog - Friendly
There’s acres of space around Court Farm and a host of wonderful walks on the doorstep for your and your dog to explore. Step out of your door and take a stroll along the fascinating Bude canal. Take a loop around our local woods, or explore the footpaths across the fields to the stunning beach of Widemouth Bay.
Guests choosing to stay at our Northcott rural retreats enjoy direct access from our farm lane on to the stunning but challenging South West Coast Path. While canine capers at on Northcott Mouth are but a leisurely 15 minute stroll away.
We are in one of the most dog-friendly regions in the UK, most of our local beaches allow dogs on leads even during summer. Each beach has different restrictions regarding dogs but, off season, dogs are allowed on all beaches …Nothing beats walking along the shoreline as the sun goes down watching, your dog playing in the waves or chasing in circles around the beach having a wonderful time.
For information on dog-friendly beaches, please visit www.thecornishcoast.co.uk or cornwall.gov.uk/leisure-and-culture/beaches-in-cornwall
There are also a number of dog-friendly restaurants and pubs nearby aswell as many local attractions also now allowing dogs as follows …

Generally speaking any attraction that’s animal related do not allow dogs for obvious reasons but all is not lost as they may offer shaded parking, onsite kennels, dog walking nearby or flexibility in returning to your car as often as you need to.
At the end of the day, holidays are for all the family and its never quite the same if someone is missing. So bring your dog with you, they will have more fun visiting dog friendly Court Farm Holidays than staying at home without you.
