This remarkable property has been furnished to a delightful standard throughout. Offering the perfect bolt hole for families or couples alike whatever time of year.

Pull up the smart driveway to this cute two-bedroom thatched cottage and you’ll feel tranquillity wash over you immediately. The baby sister to its sibling next door, it sits in a grassy plot with open countryside all around. And if that isn’t enough, Bude’s sandy beaches are just 5 miles away.

Kick off your shoes and make use of the towels provided for muddy pooches in the entrance hall, before sinking into the comfortable sofa in the stylish lounge/diner. The wall of windows looks onto the charming courtyard garden with plenty of corners to snuffle and garden furniture with a parasol for the humans to enjoy al fresco dining. Kids and dogs will enjoy scampering around the additional lawned garden behind the house, and a separate utility room is useful for dealing with sandy, muddy towels and clothes.

With countryside all around, you won’t need to venture far to enjoy the great outdoors and there’s a pub on the campsite half a mile away for refreshments. The seaside town of Bude is 4 miles away, with a sandy beach which allows dogs year-round. All-action couples or families can try out watersports at Tamar Lakes, which also has some beautiful dog-friendly walks, while everyone will enjoy a visit to Clovelly, 16 miles away with its quaint cobbled streets and crabbing from the harbour, plus some of the freshest seafood in the county. Kids will be begging for a day out at the Milky Way adventure park, 15 miles, but they’ll also enjoy a visit to King Arthur’s castle of Tintagel, and the Arthurian Centre, 22 miles away.

Dogs are charged at £20 each per full or part week.
