Why we love it

Beautiful, reclaimed décor, living spaces to snuggle into and space for the dog to stretch out, this Cornish stay is well worth a visit!

What you'll love

Dogs will love

  • Bounding through the garden at full zoom
  • Pretending they need more of the snacks left for them
  • Bedtime by the wood burner

Humans will love

  • Going on the many days out nearby
  • Doing nothing at all in the wood fired hot tub
  • Falling fast asleep in a ex-steam roller van!

The place

A stay in two parts – one, a steam roller living van, and the other a spacious cabin placed just opposite, you can live in one or both for a few days. In the van, you’ll find a cosy bed for two to retire to, once you and your dog have had enough of the day’s adventure. In the cabin, the meeting point between old and new, the calming woody tones of reclaimed furniture, and the cast iron wood burner for the colder summer nights, or wintry seasons. Let the dog bound from one end of the garden to the other, whilst you enjoy some downtime amongst the rustling leaves, or drape yourself over the edges of the wood fired hot tub – and relax. Whether you go out for adventure, or stay in for R&R, you’ve made the right choice.

In the neighbourhood

  • If you’re in the mood for a bite to eat, or maybe a glass of something fireside, pop into The Springer Spaniel pub just under a mile down the road. It’s dog friendly, with all the pub classics you’d hope to see on the menu. If you’re lucky – you might also get to meet Ernie, the pub dog – with the title of ‘cuddle-master’. A little further away, there’s The Manor at Rilla Mill, The Crows Nest – both well worth a visit, and both dog friendly
  • Looking to enjoy cooking something special? If you’re wanting to sample the local produce, there’s a few places to stock up on supplies nearby. The nearest is three miles away in Stoke Climsland, where you can pick up produce at the local Post Office, but there’s also several larger supermarkets at Launceston five miles away. Otherwise, there’s fresh vegetables down the road on sale at Tamar Organics, and farm shops dotted about for local produce
  • If you want to take the dog on a tour of the local towns, in search of new and adventurous sniffs, there’s several in easy reach. Head to Tavistock, a half hour away, for the famous Pannier Market which has been running for 900 years. Fowey is an hour away, but worth the journey – famous for its mussels and seafood. Looe and Tintagel are similar distances, in opposite directions, giving somewhere to visit within 40m on either side of the coast for a coastal walk and a pint with a great view
  • There’s so much to do to be active nearby. If you’re bringing the bike to explore tracks – there’s The Camel Trail nearby to run the length of. If hikes are more your game (and the dog’s in the mood for an adventure), take to Dartmoor or Bodmin Moor, half an hour away in opposite directions. Surfers will love how close they are to either coast, but even those not looking for a wave to ride will enjoy letting the hound off the lead for some fresh sea air
  • There’s a good chance you’re looking for a walk to tire out your four-legged friend, and you’re in luck! There’s almost too many to mention. For some lovely wooded walks, take a quick drive to Cardinham Woods or Golitha Falls for some woodland strolls. For waterside romps, there’s Roadford, Siblyback or Burrator Reservoir to wander for an afternoon. There are incredible walks everywhere nearby, whether famed or not, and it’s well worth exploring the Tamar Valley AONB, Bodmin Moor or Dartmoor – all within half an hour’s drive
  • Everyone loves a trip to a National Trust estate, and you’re in luck – they’re dotted about all around this area. There’s Lanhydrock country house, where you’re welcome to bring your dog to the café or Stables Tea Rooms, Cotehele Tudor mansion – with its 1,300 acres of woodland and fields. At Buckland Abbey, there’s colour coded walks for easier and harder strolls through the grounds and at St Nectan’s Glen there’s a waterfall walk with a café to admire, and fuel up at, with your dog.
