It almost feels wrong to do so, but with lockdowns and restrictions over the last eighteen months why not think about getting away and recharging those batteries.

This year why not take an out of season break to get away from the everyday stresses that Coronavirus has put upon us. Enjoy the freedom of just getting away.

Dogs are welcome at both our St Columb Major and Porthtowan properties.

Make the most of long beach walks and jumping over the waves.  Cornwall has many dog friendly places to visit and eat out so you can really treat yourselves.

We do hope you come and visit soon.

Dogs are a huge part of a family unit and we understand how many of you like to take your pets away with you.  Both our properties can accommodate not only you but your dogs too. Why not treat your pet to a well-deserved holiday.

With so many fantastic dog friendly beaches close by it would be a real treat for any dog to feel the sand between their paws and go for a paddle in the sea.

Here are just some of the great beaches to visit with you dog…….


Porthtowan Beach

Just 11 miles from Meadow Rise & 15 miles from Bodannon.  A large expanse of golden sands backed by dunes between the Pentire Headlands to both east and west. Parking charges apply but free to National Trust Members.


When you own a dog, life doesn’t seem complete unless they are with you.  They can bring enjoyment, affection, and calmness by just being with you and we understand that.

  Watching them run around on the beach and enjoy splashing in the sea can be a real joy as they burn off all their energy. 

Out of season, the autumn, winter, and spring can be especially enjoyable as the crowds have disappeared and there is lots of space on the beaches for charging about and having fun.

We would love to welcome you and your dog to one of our properties, not only do you receive a welcome pack with tea, coffee, wine and biscuits but your dog gets their own little treat bag as well.
