This stunning boutique styled property with wood burner, hot tub and BBQ area is a must. The perfect holiday home with fabulous walks from the doorstep.

On the edge of a tranquil hamlet, this contemporary holiday home has woodland walks and sandy strolls within easy reach. Close to the ancient stannary town of Liskeard, this three-bedroom cottage is perfect for families and friends to share a relaxing holiday exploring the delights of the Cornish coast with their canine companions at their side. Visit the picturesque fishing villages of Looe and Polperro for a bracing beach walk and a drink (or bowl of water) in one of the dog-friendly pubs.

Set in a secure enclosed garden, this stylish property offers open-plan living accommodation that will set tails wagging. Sink into one of the large leather sofas after a long countryside walk while your hound stretches out in front of the wood burner. Enjoy a leisurely meal in the dining area where patio doors allow your dog to wander in and out of the garden as you eat. A ground-floor shower room is ideal for freshening up after a hike along the coast path. Upstairs are three bedrooms: a king-size, a double and a king-size zip-and-link that can be made up into a twin on request. There is also a shared family bathroom. Outside you can enjoy the lawn garden with a BBQ area and hot tub.

With direct access to a public footpath leading to the unspoilt village of Minions, your holiday home is the perfect base from which to explore the breathtaking landscape of Bodmin Moor. Walk through the ancient woodlands of Draynes Wood to see the spectacular cascades of Golitha Falls. Stroll the heritage trail through Liskeard (3 miles), browse the Victorian-fronted shops and enjoy a light lunch in one of the dog-friendly cafes. Let your pup romp along the trails at Cardinham Woods (10 miles) through woodland scenery the whole family will enjoy.

The cottage is lovely and in a very quite location, pub is a short walk away and was very friendly. A few small recommendations could have made the cottage better. Wardrobes in the bedrooms, a larger fridge needed and better lighting in the garden ( especially near the bbq) .

Great location - fabulous couple that give you all the information you need then leaves it up to you how much interaction you want with them, which is great. Lots to do locally especially if you like walking. The property is up there with the best and the hot tub just tops it off. Very safe for your dog as the garden is well fenced off.
