This delightful property nestles next to the owners’ home in a beautiful garden setting just a few miles from the North Cornwall coast, and provides a perfect base for couples looking to relax and unwind.

This charming studio-style cottage in the heart of North Cornwall is perfect for a romantic break for two, along with a second couple, of the four-legged variety! Enjoying a secluded setting surrounded by beautiful gardens, there’s access to a large shared garden and 2-acre field, perfect for holidaying hounds needing to stretch their legs and let off some steam. The spectacular coast and dog-friendly beaches are less than 7 miles away.

The property is a converted wing of the owner’s home and full of character and unique period features. A romantic bedroom/lounge is at the heart of this cosy retreat, with exposed beams and vaulted ceiling. Snuggle up on the sofas while your furry pals find their perfect spot in front of the wood burner, to warm up after a busy day of exploring. The traditional touches continue with an original stone floor in the hallway, which leads you to the cottage kitchen where you can rustle up a meal for your loved ones. There are enclosed gravelled patios to the front and rear, offering plenty of spots to soak up the peace and tranquillity, while your canines explore and sniff out new smells. Guests are also welcome to use the large shared garden where there’s a pretty, unfenced pond.

It won’t take long to get those tails wagging with the fantastic walks to be found here. Less than 2 miles away is the scenic South West Coastal Path which provides access to the unique clifftop ‘Hawker’s Hut’, a popular local trail. Head to the seaside town of Bude (6.5 miles) for a wander, before visiting one of its many sandy beaches where furry friends are free to roam and make new pals of their own. The bustling fishing village of Clovelly, with its famous cobbled street, is 10 miles away.

The cottage was absolutely perfect, and spotlessly clean. The place looks so much bigger than it looks in the photos. It is cosy, obviously, but never cramped. A well equipped kitchen, with so many nice touches, like biscuits for the dog, and a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge. It is hard to work out the best bit, but I think we have narrowed it doRead morewn to the log burner, or the roll top bath room! We had such an amazing break. Thank you. Hide

The property is down a dirt track with a long walk from the car park. As a dog owner we were shocked how doggy it smelt so left after 1 day due to asthma. The property is also joined to the main house with no privacy as you can hear the owners talking. Their phone woke us up so not the relaxing spot we had been lead to believe.
