Perran Springs Holiday Park welcomes your family pet in your camping or touring unit.

Dog Friendly Camping In Cornwall

Cornwall is a great holiday destination for your family pet. There are lovely coastal and countryside walks, woodland areas, gardens and fantastic dog friendly beaches, where they’ll experience wonderful new sights, smells and sounds.

As dog owners in the past ourselves, we understand that your pet is part of your family. At Perran Springs we welcome up to 3 pets in your own camping or touring unit.

To ensure that all guests enjoy their holiday, there are a few points to follow during your stay with us, please read below.

Dogs and All Other Pets:
1. You are not permitted to bring any pet or animal onto the Park except a maximum of three dogs/pets in your own Camping or Touring Unit. Certain breeds of dog are not permitted, which includes any dogs listed in the Dangerous Dog Act 1991.
2. You must inform us at the time of making your booking, whether you intend to bring a pet(s) with you, as they are only permitted within your own Touring or Camping pitch, and not in any of our Caravan Holiday Homes, Log Pods or Eurotents. You must tell us before you visit the park if you plan to bring any pet or animal and answer any reasonable question about them and their suitability for our park environment. If we are not satisfied that the pet or animal is suitable for our park environment, we may tell you that you cannot bring them. This is because we cannot allow the safety of others to be put at risk.
3. If you bring your dog(s)/pet(s) with you when you stay with us you must:
3.1. Keep the dog(s)/pet(s) under control and on a short lead at all times.
3.2. Clean up immediately after any fouling by your dog(s)/pet(s).
3.3. Any dog(s) pet(s) or animal(s) you bring must be supervised by and under the control of you, or of a responsible adult in your party, at all times. This means you may not leave any pet or animal unsupervised in your unit, or on your pitch, or anywhere on the park at any time, apart from very small pets which permanently live in a small cage, aquarium or similar. Nor may you leave any pet or animal under the supervision of any person aged under 18. These rules apply even if the pet or animal knows the park well and you believe them to be well-behaved.
4. We reserve the right to require that the owner removes their dog(s), or any other pet(s) in their party, from the park if it is a nuisance or danger to other guests. If you do not supervise and control any pet or animal, we are likely to ask you to remove it from the park straight away. This is because we cannot allow the safety of others to be put at risk.
5. Dogs/pets are not permitted in any park building.
6. Dogs/pets are allowed in our Meadow Areas (Fox, Badger and Lake), but must be kept under control and on a short lead at all times. Dogs are not allowed in the lakes or pond.
6. Dogs/pets are to be tied when on the pitch and/or walked on a short lead by an adult aged 18 years and over only. Dogs and cats must wear a collar and Identity tag.
7. Nothing in these terms and conditions prevents you from bringing an assistance dog to the park if this is required to support your disability and Assistance Dogs UK or any successor body has issued you with an Identification Book or other appropriate evidence.
8. Clause 5, above, does not apply to registered assistance dogs.
9. If you see another pet or animal anywhere on the park which does not appear to be supervised by and under the control of a responsible adult, or whose behaviour gives a cause for concern please tell us straight away.
