Set within 30 acres of farmland, this small complex of three pleasant one-bedroom properties has sea views, ponies and chickens, and a footpath to the coast.

Stay at this delightful barn conversion cottage to enjoy a cute romantic retreat in stylish and comfortable surroundings with up to two canine companions. The surroundings of the owners’ farm make this a wonderfully peaceful place to stay, whilst the proximity of the stunning Penwith Heritage Coast ensures that you and your beloved dogs can enjoy many miles of coastal walks together.

This cottage is one of three at this quiet rural retreat and is laid out over a single level, with one step leading up to the front door. Once inside, you will be greeted by the open-plan lounge/kitchen/diner, where a wood burner-effect gas fire keeps the room lovely and warm, lighting the room with a cosy glow. There is plenty of space to relax here for guests and their puppy pals with the wooden dining table seating two, in addition to which there is an outdoor table and chairs on the patio which is accessed through French windows. The bedroom, meanwhile, has been styled as a restful sanctuary-like space featuring a four-poster bed to flop on to. The owners are always happy for guests to take a look around the farm to meet the resident animals, and this is always a memorable part of their holiday for those who make time to do so.

Set within 1.5 miles of one of the most beautiful stretches of UK coastline, a stay at this cottage allows you to really make the most of the area’s coastal walks and quiet beaches. The closest beach can be found at nearby Gwynver, a popular spot with surfers and locals, thanks to its fabulously secluded location. The path down to the beach is quite steep in places, but it is well worth the effort to enjoy this stunning dog-friendly stretch of sand.

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

This was our second visit within four years, perfect for lovely walks to the beach and Lands end. Perfect location to venture out around west part of Cornwall. The cottage is perfect for that - lovely and warm and very good facilities. Definitely recommend to anyone

Ducks Waddle is a really nice roomy cottage which looks out over fields to the sea. There are friendly ponies in the field and an enormous pet cow! A 10 minute drive takes you to the beautiful Sennen Cove (the very fit could walk from the cottage) which has, thankfully, remained uncommercialised.

Lovely and peaceful, the closest beach had a very steep path to it, so only went to this one once, the cottage was really nicely laid out and homely, although, there were a few horses in the field adjacent and our older dog constantly barked at them which spoiled it really, it might be helpful to state the proximity of the animals to the property.
