You would never guess the cottages are dog friendly, not a trace of a doggy smell and absolutely spotless!

This was our first time staying at Jack's House with it's neighbouring rental cottages to suit all sizes of families and also accommodation to include mans best friend the dog. They supplied us with a very large dog crate, dog bedding, bones etc and a very welcoming plate of essentials as we arrived. Jack House has all mod cons and is a fantastic 5 star clean, bright cottage with relaxing surroundings.

on arrival at the cottage we were amazed at the quality it is so much nicer than shown on the website we have stayed at a number of holiday cottages with our dog in the past this is by far the best


This is a fantastic place to stay, and one of the best welcoming dog friendly places we've been too.

Great place to stay as a couple or as a family, dog friendly too. Have stayed a couple of times now & always a pleasurable experience; plenty to do or not to do whatever is your cuppa. Will be back.


The location of these cottages is superb, just a short distance to Widemouth bay, Nan's house - the largest which we stayed in is luxurious and beautifully appointed.

My family and I have just returned from a weeks stay at Whalesborough - and only have one complaint ... we wish we had booked for two weeks! If you are looking for dog friendly accommodation that is of a high standard then this is the place for you. The cottage was clean, comfortable and well equipped and the surrounding area great for long walks and exploration. The location is brilliant - easy driving distance to Padstow, Tintagel and Clovelly, and near several dog friendly beaches. We will definitely be returning.

We stayed in Westcotts with friends for a week and it was absolutely superb. Its within walking distance of the beach, so you don't need a car once you're there - days were spent walking along the cliffs and beaches stopping at the local drinking holes along the way

As other reviews say this really is top quality accommodation in a fantastic location. We stayed in Jacks House, it was clean, well equiped and extremely comfortable. This is far and away the best cottage accommodation we have stayed in, well done in providing quality and dog friendly accommodation in Bude.

I loved the dog package which provided all we needed during our stay. There was even a dog wash and hair dryer! It truly was a dog friendly holiday. On our arrival we were greeted with lovely lemon cake and a warm welcome from the owner. If you are after high spec accomadation in a fabulous location that caters for kids and dogs - choose the Proudfoot's boutique cottages.

We really have enjoyed our week at Whalesborough. The cottage offered first class accommodation, very clean, spacious and excellent facilities. Very good location, we enjoyed some local walks including the canal walk into Bude (our dog enjoyed it too). We had some excellent days out including St Ives, Port Isaac, Boscastle and Padstow. All in all a terrific holiday and topped with fabulous weather.

Another fab holiday in Whalesborough. The accommodation was fantastic for all the family, loved daily swimming in the indoor heated pool. Did lots of walking with our 2 Golden Retrievers. The cottage is so well set up to have the dogs with us on holiday, without any worries. Their treats were gratefully received, having the dog cage allowed us to go out and know they were safe and happy whilst we were not here. The weather was amazing which always helps, but with this bright fresh easy to keep clean cottage, how could we not enjoy. Our African Grey parrot loved sitting by the window chatting away.

A really lovely winter break. We've stayed in a few of the cottages now and this one is just as lovely! Really impressed with the new swimming pool/spa - massages were amazing! We 'll be back in the summer. Thank you.

We found Whalesborough on the internet because the usual place we go to was fully booked. We love luxury dog friendly accommodation and this was fabulous. The spa/swimming pool was lovely. We had great walking weather and found lots of places to take Jimmy (our little yorkie). He was exhausted by the end of each day. Our two teenagers loved the free wifi which made for a very relaxing time when we got back. Max also loved the games barn. Thanks for a fab holiday, definitely be back.

Lovely comfortable boutique cottage. Everything you need for a relaxing family dog friendly holiday. Loved walking to Widemouth Bay for fab waves and great body boarding. Loved both the indoor and outdoor swimming pools and found Sharron and all the staff very friendly and helpful. Hope to visit again soon.

The swimming pool is fab!! We used it several times. The boys absolutely loved feeding the pigs and calling out "piggy, piggy, piggy" to get them to come charging down to us. Also trying their hands at fishing for the first time, they were delighted to catch bream and perch.

Such an amazing holiday! We have loved staying at 'Moleyns' and within the location of the farm. Every day has been sunny, spending many hours at Sandymouth beach and the outdoor swimming pool. We visited the Alpaca Park, a milking farm, visited Padstow and walked the lovely walk to Bude along the canal. A very enjoyable holiday. We shall be returning!

This is our second stay at Whalesborough and delighted to say that your having kept up the high standards, it has been as huge a success as the first visit. Your vision to make it so eco-friendly is a triumph and makes the place so special. Well that.....and the views, and the beaches, and the Weir and especially the spa. Thank you see you again.

Our 2nd visit to Whalesborough, another brilliant stay, very relaxing and the new pool and spa facilities made our winter break perfect. "Venners" is a first class cottage and the dog facilities....blankets etc made it a comfortable stay. We loved walking the dogs on Sandymouth Bay beach and breakfast at the Weir is fantastic! Already looking at which cottage to stay in next summer.

Fantastic week - second time here, first in Venners. Spa and pool used everyday! Dogs enjoyed wonderful walks around Bude's beaches and Boscastle. Great meals at Bude Tandoori, Bay View Inn and Elements! Will definitely be back! Thank you for an amazing place.

A journey that started with a random online search for 'dog friendly Cornish holiday' Ends with utterly relaxed, pampered and happy family! Stunning views, breath taking coastal walks, lovely restaurants (Elements a much visited favourite) all combined with the luxury of the cottage and the surrounding farm. Thanks to all for such a brilliant retreat.

The indoor heated swimming pool is lovely, we will be going home much fitter. Free range farm eggs are lovely. Looking forward to our next visit.

With two dogs with us, this was an excellent place to stay, walks from the doorstep. We all had a great time. What can we say about accommodation - 1st class. We have stayed in many dog friendly places, but this must be in our top 3. Hope to come back.

We have had the most fantastic time, so dog friendly. Wonderful walks and the tea room provides the best end to any walk. The accommodation is first class, so cosy and everything you need. I was even able to set up my agility equipment on the grass out the back - how cool is that! We will be back.

Fantastic comfortable luxury cottage within lovely grounds. It provided peace and quiet with lovely views of the countryside. The children (aged 3 and 7 years) really enjoyed the barn and outdoor swimming pool. We visited all the nearby beaches and walked the coastal path. The Bay View Inn and Life's a Beach are well worth both a lunch and evening meal. We look forward to visiting the tea room on our way home. We will be returning next year.

We have had a lovely stay here, the pool has been fantastic. The weather could have been better on the second week but it didn't spoil our holiday! The walk along the canal that goes down into Bude was lovely and great for walking the dog. We enjoyed the DVD's in the games room on the rainy days. Thank you for such a wonderful stay.

We've had a fabulous week at Whalesborough Boutique Cottages, making the most of the indoor pool, the table tennis and the amazing trampoline. With cream teas at The Weir, fudge at Padstow and barbecues on the patio, we've eaten well. Good job the long dog walks used up the calories. Happy relaxed days at Whalesborough.

We had a lovely stay at Nan's Holiday House. Surrounding and views are outstanding. The children and the grown ups enjoyed lazing by the pool and relaxing in the hot tub. Lots of space to comfortably sleep a large family. We will be taking away some beautiful memories.

If you're looking for 5 star luxury where you can bring your dogs this is it. The cottages are finished to a really high specification with everything you need to make them a home from home. Our only complaint is that we didn't stay longer!

Superb location peaceful yet close to Bude amenities and beach; high standard of contemporary accommodation; spacious and well thought out; great dog friendly option. Try it - you won't be disappointed!

The cottage (Longdown) was beautifully decorated and fitted out (contemporary). The Proudfoot family know what is needed for a fabulous family holiday - and they provided it. The games barn and pool were a hit with my kids, the fields and walks down to the beach a hit with my dog!

We have just returned from a week long stay in Sandparks - one of Whalesborough's fantastic holiday cottages. We were promised 5 star - and we certainly got it! The cottages are absolutely spotless and equipped with absolutely everything you could want. Contemporary in design, they have been decorated and furnished to a very high standard. (In fact I would be VERY happy to have a home like that!). The cottages are pet friendly and for a small extra charge we were provided with a huge dog crate, covers for the sofa, a dog mat, poop bags and even a welcome chew for our beloved Jack Russell.

What a find! We stayed for two weeks in Westcotts at Whalesborough. We found the accommodation first class. It was spotless and was finished to a very high standard. It is obvious that a lot of thought has gone in to these cottages to make them luxurious and comfortable. The amenities both inside and outside were top notch! The kids (aged 12 and 10) loved the indoor barn and outside heated pool. The dog loved his comfortable bed, the enclosed garden and doggy treat on arrival along with the many different places to go for walks, and the adults.......... loved it all!. If you are looking for first class self catering accommodation in North Cornwall that has it all, then look no further than Whalesborough in Bude!

We happened upon this place on the off chance and boy! did we get lucky. Before the children we travelled the world a bit and were fortunate enough to stay in some special hotels, including a 6* and Whalesborough is right up with them. We stayed in 'Jacks House', a spacious, clean, well appointed and cosy 3 bed cottage.

My partner, our dog and I have just spent a fantastic week at Whalesborough Cottages helped by some glorious weather. The facilities are some of the best dog-friendly accommodation we have experienced, and the cottages are large, bright, modern and very clean.

Absolutely superb self catering near Bude - both for location and standard of accomodation. We stayed with 2 dogs in a beautiful converted barn. Everything was catered for, and as a dog friendly establishment they really lived up to it. A welcome pooch pack, and secure private garden area as well as loads of outside space for the dogs to enjoy in the adjoining fields.
