Dogs at Polmanter

We want your pet to have a great holiday at Polmanter too. As dog owners ourselves, we appreciate that pets have their individual needs, and we always do our best to cater for Polmanter’s best friends! We accept up to two dogs per pitch (at a small extra charge), and it’s lovely to see so many happy pooches enjoying Cornwall.

Take a read of our doggy blog, ‘Holidays with your dog in St Ives‘, for the most up to date information on designated dog beaches and restrictions.


We’ve recently installed a special dog shower, for rinsing off sandy pets after a happy day on the beach! There are also plenty of tethering points outside the amenity blocks to keep your dog safe while you enjoy your own shower, and well-behaved dogs are welcome to join you in the conservatory area of The Stable Bar.

We ask that dogs are kept on a lead in the main campsite, however there is a lovely big field dedicated to dogs. We provide free waste bags next to all the dog waste bins, and please help us keep Polmanter spotless by using these.

Finding dog-friendly places to visit in Cornwall is easy – if you’re in the know! Call into Reception and ask for recommendations. Different beaches have different regulations, so it’s good to check. A lovely day out with your dog is to walk into St Ives from Polmanter, and have a good scamper on Bamaluz Beach, which allows dogs all year round.

Take a look at “Dogs Love Cornwall‘ – a great online resource that also published a magazine. The latest edition can be found at Reception.
