Bringing the Dogs

Looking for a dog friendly holiday in Cornwall? Let us welcome you to our pet-friendly paradise on the North Coast. Set in 450 acres, there is an amazing amount of space to explore. Venture a few minutes further and you’ll be on the coastal path or the beaches of Bude or Widemouth, before returning to one of our dog friendly cottages, complete with its own enclosed garden.

Your Dog Friendly Cottage

All of our luxury cottages are great for families and dog owners. As well as having everything you need inside, such as a throws for the sofa and comfy bedding for your dog, there’s also an enclosed garden, meaning that even the most resourceful of dogs will be safe and secure at your cottage.

450 Acres to explore

Our cottages are situated within 450 acres of gorgeous cornish countryside and includes several great walks; you can head down the canal (pictured) which will lead you all the way to Bude, enjoy the Whalesborough trail which will bring you out in Widemouth Bay (around 5km away) or take the shorter stroll down to our dog friendly onsite restaurant, The Weir.

Your Pooch Pack

We provide luxury Pooch Packs on arrival full of treats and the essentials your pup might need during their holiday. 

Dog Shower

Rinse off that Westcountry mud after a long walk in the countryside or soak sandy paws in our dedicated dog showers. 

Enclosed Gardens

Our dog friendly cottages all have a pooch proof fenced in garden so you can give them a little outside freedom.

Explore with your dog

There are more dog friendly beaches in North Cornwall than anywhere else in the South West. There are some spectacular walks to do; head south towards Millook, Dizzard, Crackington Haven and Boscastle or North to Bude and the dramatic cliffs of Morwenstow and beyond.

If you fancy somewhere a bit more in-land, Bodmin Moor is only 20 minutes drive away.

Bay View Inn

Dog friendly Bay View Inn is a great spot to enjoy a cold drink and watch the sun go down with the whole family.

Black Rock

Black Rock Beach sits on the south side of Widemouth Bay. You and your dog will love exploring the vast sandy stretch. 

Dog Friendly and Sustainable

Your cottage will be set in acres and acres of gorgeous green countryside. If you head a little further, you’ll find the stunning North Cornish coastline. To make sure that both are as glorious tomorrow as they are today, we’re striving to be as sustainable as we can be. From keeping microplastics from entering the sea, to becoming energy self-sufficient by the end of 2025, your holiday with us will be a green one.


As well as all the work we’re putting into steering Whalesborough towards carbon neutrality, we’re creating the environment for you to join us on the journey!  All our welcome packs are filled with the same Ocean Saver cleaning products we use here on site, all of our cottages have access to EV charging points and we’ve created a series of walking paths across our 450 acres making it possible to walk all the way into Bude on car free routes.
