Little Acre

Little Acre looks like a French Bastide, with its stone walling and vines that crawl the spaces between the windows. Wicker chairs adorn the space either side of the front door, for afternoon cups of tea and tipples. To one side, there’s an idyllic English garden, with all manner of plants and trees growing around the enclosed garden your dog will love zooming about in. On the other side, a shaded secret garden opens up to another field where your dog can run free. The enclosed garden is a great space for your pup to explore and sniff out all the different smells and plants. And you’ll love sitting in the shade of the secret garden, sipping on a cold drink while your dog’s busy.

The Old Barn at Lower Tresithick

The Old Barn is the perfect place to get away from it all and enjoy the best of both the country and the coast. Sitting peacefully in a private setting on Lower Tresithick Farmstead, The Old Barn has a south-facing decking with a view over the Cornish apple orchard. The enclosed garden is perfect for relaxing in, and the large dining table is ideal for winter feasts. You can also enjoy BBQs on sultry summer nights or simply thumb through a bestseller on the sun deck. Whatever your pleasure, you’re sure to find it at The Old Barn.

Round House East

Roundhouse East is a great place to stay if you’re looking for a little bit of everything that Cornwall has to offer. The 1820s building has been decorated with bright contemporary flair, and the secluded coves of Great and Little Molunan are perfect for snorkelling. The village shop is well stocked, and you can buy fresh fish from the Curgurrell Farm Shop. The dog-friendly New Inn is just 150 yards away, and The Hidden Hut (if you can book it) is about an hour’s walk along the coast. Their feast nights are served at a long table on the sand, and you’re fully expected to come home covered in sand and mud! There are towels and an outdoor tap to wash off boots and paws, and an enclosed garden so your four-legged friend can run around safely.
