With dogs now allowed on Polzeath beach all year round (with just a time restriction before 10am and after 6.00pm during the summer holidays), and acres of National Trust land to explore, Polzeath is fast becoming a top destination for holidays with your four-legged friends in tow.
The Latitude50 team were so excited to hear the news that Cornwall Council have changed the dog restrictions that apply to Polzeath Beach. The restriction has been shortened to apply to 15 May to 30 September. During these summer weeks, dogs are now allowed on the beach before 10am and after 6pm.
