Families come in all shapes and sizes and, at Cornerway House, we are very happy to welcome families with furry members too!
That’s right, we’re a pet-friendly bed and breakfast, with self-catering options, in Plettenberg Bay! Lockdown has been a difficult time for all of us and, while our pets may have been happy to have us home, we think they also deserve a breakaway for quality time with you, fresh air and endless beaches. And, as we have our own canine family members, we’ve explored Plett with our animals and can share some of our favourite places that welcome dogs too…
Restaurants, Markets & Coffee Shops
Clares Cakes: Main Street, Plettenberg Bay. Baked treats and scrumptious breakfasts are a speciality at Clares. In fact, her cakes and cupcakes are famous with visitors from Cape Town to Johannesburg, and even further afield!
The Grand Cafe: Main Street, Plettenberg Bay. Settle in at The Grand for a chilled glass of bubbly, old-town coffee and an almond croissant surrounded by the Grand’s shabby-chic decor and one of the most superb views in town.
The Harkerville Market: Harkerville, Plettenberg Bay every Saturday. Beautiful organic produce and flowers, lovely crafts and speciality foods are all on offer, and the famous bush breakfast is not to be missed.
The Roadside Cafe: Piesang Valley Road, Plettenberg Bay. Offering lunch, breakfast or takeaways in a relaxed setting, the Roadside Cafe is good for a quick stop after a morning of fun on the beach.
Seakrit Spot: Main Street, Plettenberg Bay. Here’s a place to really get down with the locals. If you’re looking for a social spot to bring your pet, Seakrit Spot is the place.
Old Nick Village, N2 Plettenberg Bay. In addition to a popular organic mid-week market on a Wednesday, Old Nick Village is generally a popular destination for a coffee, gift-shopping and generally enjoying a sunshine meander around one of Plett’s historical locations.
Thyme & Again, N2 Plettenberg Bay. Thyme & Again makes it onto many lists of the best farmstalls on the Garden Route and offers visitors tasty baked treats, good coffee and other light meals. It’s a good choice to stop if you’ve been out exploring Nature’s Valley or Keurbooms with your pet.
Beaches & Lagoons
Poortjies Lagoon: Low tide on the lagoon reveals a canine play-park of sand bars, shallow pools and the lovely lagoon for some quality time in the sun with your best furry friend. Dogs are permitted off leash here but must be under control of their owners at all times. Please pick up after your pet.
Robberg Beach (Sanctuary & Solar beaches): As with Poortjies, the further reaches of Robberg Beach (towards the peninsula) are a playground for pooches. Long stretches of beach, other dogs to meet and the endlessly entertaining ocean are all waiting for you. Again, dogs are permitted off leash here but must be under control of their owners at all times. Please pick up after your pet.
