Visiting Glendurgan and the North Helford countryside with your dog

A man examines the walking information board at NT Bosveal car park

Take your pick of various dog friendly way-marked walks along the North Helford with over 300 acres of countryside, coastline and beaches waiting to be explored.

Where can my dog go?

Parking at NT Bosveal car park is less than half a mile around the corner from Glendurgan’s main car park. From here there are numerous countryside walks available with year-round access to dog friendly beaches. You'll find an information board detailing way-marked walks of varying lengths and distances, taking in woodland areas, the South West Coast Path and secluded stony coves along the way. 

Please be aware of cliff edges along the coast path.

When walking your dog across fields please also be mindful of any livestock grazing.

What do I need to be aware of?

To make sure everyone has an enjoyable day please follow our Canine Code:

  • Take the lead: help reduce the chance of your pup disturbing wildlife by keeping them on a lead.
  • Scoop that poop: bag it and bin it to keep your favourite places beautiful. 
  • Paws for thought: look out for information signs and take extra care on cliff paths.
  • Be on the ball: not everyone loves dogs, so keep them close by.

Where can’t my dog go?

Assistance dogs only at Glendurgan, however they are welcome in the surrounding countryside, reception building, plant sales and tea-house.

Facilities available for my dog

There are water bowls dotted about Glendurgan’s car park and tea-house for thirsty canines who need a refreshing drink. Feel free to ask for a map of the countryside and one of the team will be happy to talk through different options for walks around the area.

The fish cellar in Durgan (currently closed due to Covid) has free dog biscuits, a water bowel  plus a warm welcome for you & plenty of fuss for your dog.
