Property code: CORYR

Situated in a peaceful, rural position, this one bedroom property is one of five located on a 267 acre dairy farm in the heart of the Cornish countryside.

A cosy home-from-home on the Hartland Heritage Coast, with stunning views all around – how does that sound? With space for two people and up to three canine guests, this cottage in Cornwall is ideal for a romantic break with your partner and pets. The dogs will love snuggling by the cosy wood burner and burning off some steam in the attached paddock, while you’ll adore relaxing on the patio and exploring pretty Cornish towns such as Bude (12 miles), or Clovelly (12.5 miles) in neighbouring Devon. With four other properties on this working organic dairy farm, there’ll be plenty of space for everyone if you’re part of a larger group.

 

The inside, decorated in a simple rustic style, has an open-plan layout that’s great for spending quality time together. As your partner prepares lunch in the well-equipped kitchen, you can relax with a magazine on the sofa or draw up an exciting plan for tomorrow. On the private patio, flanked with pretty plants and with stairs leading up to the paddock, enjoy morning coffee while your pet dozes off in the summer house nearby.

 

This accommodation is in a peaceful spot in the Marsland Valley, a designated Special Scientific Interest area where many rare species of flora and fauna reside. The nearest pub, a 13th-century inn with a thatched roof, is just a mile away (well-behaved dogs welcome). There are so many activities to be enjoyed with your pets, be it walking along the stunning South West Coast Path or heading into Bude. This popular resort has lovely sandy beaches and independent shops to explore – Duckpool Beach, Sandymouth Bay, Widemouth Bay and Millook Beaches welcome dogs all year round.

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

We stayed at The Retreat at Cory Farm. Best way to find it is to select Shop as your Sat Nav destination and head down the road signed The Bush Inn.

The cottage was just o.k, no frills and tbh not very welcoming. We must point out that the reason we booked here was for the secure paddock for our elderly, deaf & blind dogs. We found out to our cost that this wasnt the case at all! We took them into the paddock to discover too late that it lead into another field with a bull the far side and the Read morebiggest, deepest cow pats weve ever seen.

Great location, offering benefits of both North Cornwall and North Devon coasts. Very peaceful and easily accessible but follow Bush Inn and Rectory Tea Room signs and not the Satnav.

Its called the Retreat and thats exactly what is is.. even though adjoined to the farm house we were given total privacy. Quiet and peaceful apart from the cockerel who loved to visit us by the back fence, this added to the whole atmosphere.. lovely. Ideal for dogs, our pups loved it and the beaches around Bude were fantastic, especially SandymouthRead more.. The super king size bed was fantastic, so big and comfy. Hide
