The place

At less than one mile to the sea, The Old Barn offers both the best of the country and the best of 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. It's easy to imagine yourself thumbing through a bestseller on the sun deck, or dining al fresco after making use of the BBQ on sultry summer nights, and even easier to imagine a winter feast at the large dining table indoors. With 12 acres of farmland on site, woods and fields to explore and the possibility of an entire field to run rampant in, dogs will have plenty of space to stretch their legs – when they’re not on the lead in the appropriate areas! There’s also an outdoor dog wash, for when they inevitably enjoy it TOO much.

  • Loe beach, dog friendly all year round, and a hotspot for watersports. Hire kayaks, boats or take lessons – or simply laze about in the nautical themed café on the beach

  • The award-winning Pandora Inn is just a 15-minute drive away, and welcomes well-behaved dogs on leads in the downstairs bar area. Sourcing ingredients from Cornish farmers and fishermen, they even use fish from their own pontoon
  • Cycle the length of the Bissoe Trail to see Cornwall’s historical mining landscape, 22 miles of mostly half flat, half light incline terrain, about two hours each way from Devoran to Portreath, with pubs and cafés on the way
