Why we love it

Right by the sea, you’ve beaches at every turn, a coastal meadow and cliffside garden to wander, and back at your space, a double-ended bath to end the day

What you'll love

Dogs will love

  • Lifting their noses into the sea breeze in the enclosed garden
  • The closest dog-friendly beach being only half a mile away
  • Letting them romp in the coastal meadow

Humans will love

  • Taking their hound to the dog-friendly pub five minutes down the road
  • Exploring the coastal towns and fishing villages in easy reach
  • Drying salty hair by the wood burner in the living room

The place

This is the spot for people who say, ‘I want to stay by the sea’ – and didn’t exaggerate. With views over the cove from your breakfast bar, it doesn’t get much closer than this. The interior’s been given a stylish makeover and has all the makings of a luxurious stay – with a stunning double-ended bath for soaking the day’s exertion away, and a wood burner to retire in front of, drying your salty hair from a quick wander down to the beach. Your large French doors open onto the lawn, and just outside you’ll find an al fresco dining space to lap up the fresh air in the morning, whilst your dog happily bounds about. Just a little further, and you’ll discover the secret garden overlooking the sea, and even an open-air cliffside amphitheatre! So, in the likely event you’re moved to perform theatre by the incredible stay you’re having, the stage is yours (just don’t think you can shout ‘encore’ to stay longer).

In the neighbourhood

  • The South West Coastal Path runs across the estate here. If you know, you know, and if you don’t – SWCP is a walking route that runs 630 miles around the entire circumference of Cornwall, and a large part of Devon, essentially encircling the entire southwestern peninsula on the UK. Head north, head south, it doesn’t matter. There’s the entire coastline to explore with your hound
  • Those with a keen eye might notice, you’re on the coast here, and there happen to be a lot of beaches nearby. Your closest sandy stretch is Gunwalloe Beach and is dog friendly all year round, but there are strong currents – so dogs aren’t encouraged to swim. Nearby, there’s Gunwalloe Church Cove Beach, 1.2 miles away, and Dollar Cove round the corner at one mile away. Both are much better spots for swimming. Dollar Cove has no dog restrictions, and Church Cove allows dogs with the exception of July and August when a seasonal dog ban is in place between 1000 and 1800
  • There are a few towns and cities to explore nearby. Take a drive out to Cadgwith a picture postcard village and harbour, with its own small inshore fleet. Buy fresh fish, or crab and bring it back to the cottage to cook up on the BBQ (if it survives the car ride with the dog). There are also a few dog-friendly pubs to make use of for a pit stop. You could also head a little further to Falmouth, which is a half-hour drive, with the reward of all the dog-friendly restaurants like Stable Pizza, or Harbour View or the dog-friendly pubs like The Boathouse, or Five Degrees West
  • Closer to home, you have The Halzephron Inn, a dog-friendly pub, serving a menu of specials that changes twice a day, from local seasonal produce. Award-winning, and even better, a five-minute walk down the road. If you’re in the mood for something soft, pop south to Poldhu Beach Cafe & Shop, for organic coffee and light bites – alongside your faithful friend
  • Care to see something unusual? The largest and best preserved of its kind, Halliggye Fogou is a series of complex underground passages associated with Cornish Iron Age settlements. It’s just a 15-minute drive away, and dogs on leads are welcome. Archaeologists are unsure of its purpose, so see if you and your four-legged friend can sniff out its function.
