This pretty property nestles in a secluded setting in the grounds of the owners' 5.5 acre smallholding, boasts countryside views, and has been lovingly furnished to provide a relaxed couples retreat.

If scenic walks across the countryside and evenings snuggled in front of a crackling fire sounds just like your cup of tea, then this charming bolthole is the ideal choice for you. Sleeping two guests and one dog, this delightful property is set in a handy location just 6 miles from the historic Cornish town of Launceston, so you could soon be adventuring near and far. You’ll have everything you need for a comfortable stay and the owners have even provided dishes, toys, a cosy bed and a blanket for your beloved hound, so four-legged friends will feel right at home – especially when they spot their welcome packet of treats.

Inside, the kitchen/dining area consists of a fabulous contemporary-style kitchen and a handcrafted dining table for romantic meals. French doors lead outside to the decked area, allowing natural light to stream in as Fido watches the resident nesting sparrows flitting about the garden. A shower room completes the ground floor, providing muddy paws with an area to wash away any mess. Climb the stairs to find an irresistible open-plan lounge/bedroom area with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and a wood burner. Outside, the enclosed garden is a marvellous place to enjoy an al fresco breakfast with panoramic views, and there’s a BBQ for special summer suppers too.

Crackington Haven 14 miles away is a popular beach with a seasonal dog ban in place, but hidden gems such as Millook Haven Beach (13 miles) and the sandy shores of Widemouth Bay (12 miles) welcome furry visitors in certain areas all year round. Foodies rejoice as there is plenty to tempt your taste buds, whether you choose to dine on seafood fresh from the sea, or pick up delicious produce to whip up your own feasts.

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