Dog Friendly Cottages
We love animals and believe your family pet should enjoy your holiday here in Cornwall just as much as you. The cottage grounds are suitable for dogs as there is a large grass area which is surrounded by hedge and fencing. The gates at the entrance of the driveway can be closed to make the area extra secure .There is a field opposite the cottages which can be used to exercise the more energetic dogs when it is not being grazed by cattle.
We welcome all pets but just ask that when walking around the farm and when in close proximity to the animals that dogs will be kept on their leads. Our own dog, ‘ Jet’ is very friendly and loves to welcome visitors to the farm,
The local area has an abundance of footpaths which are ideal for dog walking. A footpath from the farm across the fields leads down to Cotehele House and Quay. This is a wonderful woodland walk beside the river which we are sure your dog will enjoy as much as you, just remember to treat yourself to a cream tea or an ice cream when you get there! There is an up to date list of local footpaths in the cottages and this link includes all the walks that start and finish within 2 miles away. http://cfs.btck.co.uk/WalksGuides
There are the Tamar Trails which are a number of walks, a family activity centre and a perfect area for wheelchairs to explore the local area.
Every good dog walk should include a refreshment stop along the way so here we have listed the best local dog friendly pubs. Relax and enjoy a local ale or Cornish cider while your furry companion enjoys a well-earned rest too!
