If you’re in Cornwall with a dog (or children for that matter), you need to visit Trelissick!
You may have heard of the National Trust’s Trelissick Gardens (which are beautiful, but expensive if you’re not an NT member, and no dogs allowed), but you may not know about the stunning, FREE countryside walk around the gardens.
You do have to pay £4 to park in the National Trust car park, but that is the only cost. And trust me, it’s worth it for the stunning views.
It’s the perfect place to take your dogs – there are huge expanses of secure fields, a shady riverside woodland path, and even a small beach to play on!
The countryside walk along the estuary is circular (around 2.5 miles), which is just a bit too long for Pepper’s short legs, so we just went half way and then turned back. Walking back up the hilly fields totally knackered her out for the rest of the day (this is a total rarity)!
Pardon the seriously fashionable and coordinating trainers.
If you’d like to try out this walk, you can find more details here.
