Whether you are a confirmed sea dog or prefer padding across rolling countryside, this quiet corner of Cornwall offers the best of both worlds. Based in this charming former piggery on the fringes of Penryn, you’ll soon be enjoying a multitude of scenic walks and sampling local delicacies such as fresh seafood and mouth-watering Cornish ice cream. Perfectly suited to families and sleeping four guests along with a waggy-tailed companion, it is an ideal choice for a relaxing escape.

Characterised by high vaulted ceilings, wooden beams and bright decor, the property effortlessly combines traditional style with contemporary chic. Let sleeping dogs lie by the wood burner as you sip your morning coffee on the sofas, listening to the cheerful sound of birdsong. Breakfast like kings around the dining table, sizzling up something special in the country-cottage-style kitchen. After a busy day, the elegant bathroom is a welcome sanctuary to soothe tired bones, and the two cosy bedrooms guarantee a peaceful night’s slumber. Positioned in a courtyard setting next to the owner’s residence, you’ll have your own private outside space consisting of a gorgeous terrace with garden furniture and a BBQ, just the ticket for balmy summer evenings.

Sniff out adventures near and far, venturing to Falmouth 3.5 miles away for a stroll around the harbour, or soak up some local history with a visit to the imposing Pendennis Castle. There are lots of beautiful beaches along this stretch of coastline, and hidden gems such as Polgwidden Cove, 6.5 miles away, which has the added bonus of being hound friendly all year round. Accessed through Trebah Gardens, it is an idyllic day trip to add to your itinerary.
