5* Gold dog-friendly cottages with private hot tubs in South East Cornwall
Kernock - the perfect location for exploring Cornwall and Devon.
Superb attention to detail and 5* comfort will keep parents happy, while the 14-foot trampoline and 25 private acres far from the lane (perfect for running around and exploring) will keep your small people entertained. Dogs are very welcome – they get their own welcome pack, and there are dog-friendly beaches nearby, and lots of fabulous walks locally and on site. The 4 stylish detached cottages each sit in their own garden, and each cottage has its own luxury hot tub with gazebo over it. No chintz here, just crisp bedlinen, goosedown duvets (unless you're allergic...), hardwood flooring, comfortable leather sofas and peace & quiet. We are extremely baby friendly with a wide range of baby equipment, all provided free of charge. Our smallest guests get a baby hamper too. Choose from 4 detached luxury cottages, sleeping from 2-6 (10 if you book Owl and Tree together) plus cots. Most bedrooms are en suite and each cottage has a garden, terrace and barbecue, WiFi, iPod dock, flatscreen TV... Kitchens are fully equipped with all mod cons (dishwasher, washer/dryer, freezer, etc), making cooking easy. Bedrooms have lovely pocketsprung mattresses and king or super king beds. Each has an en suite bathroom with powerful showers (or bath with shower), in which you will also find White Company bathrobes, luxury Temple Spa toiletries and fluffy towels. Everything you need for a relaxing holiday. Heather Barn is wheelchair-friendly (NAS M3A). There are loads of things to do locally, whatever the weather and only 10 miles from the beach; Kernock is perfectly located for exploring this beautiful hidden corner of Cornwall.
25 acres of mature gardens, woodland, paddocks and fields to explore, with great views. Lots of dog walking space – there’s a fenced field with woods where they can safely run off the lead. The Coach House and Heather Barn have enclosed gardens providing a secure space for dogs. There is abundant wildlife – owls, badgers, foxes and rabbits galore! Watch the majestic buzzards soar over the valley in the daytime, and borrow our telescope and planisphere to explore the breathtaking night skies (with little ambient light, we do good stars!), which are perfectly viewed from the comfort of your private hot tub!
Choices, choices… We offer guests complimentary membership to China Fleet Country Club (pool, spa etc) – great for rainy days. St Mellion golf is 2 miles away. For lovers of houses & gardens, Cotehele, Antony and Mount Edgcumbe are all nearby. Local beaches are dog-friendly (as is the Eden Project). Animal lovers have donkey, monkey, owl and otter sanctuaries within easy reach, and Dartmoor Wildlife Park is 20 minutes’ drive. Adventure seekers can 'fly' the UK’s longest zipwire, go coasteering or karting at Menheniot, or tree-surf at Gunnislake (both <10 miles). Walkers are spoilt for choice, either locally in the beautiful Tamar and Lynher valleys, or Dartmoor and Bodmin both within 20 minutes, as is Caradon with the famous Minions and Cheesewring. The gorgeous south coast beaches are 9 miles away - great golden sand at Whitsand, or fabulous rockpooling at Seaton and Downderry (buckets and spades provided). The largest World Heritage site in the UK is on our doorstep - Cornwall Mining Heritage - a wealth of history and culture. Siblyback has a wakeboarding cable, other watersports, fishing and Segway. Plymouth has a great theatre, several cinemas and lots of galleries and restaurants for those wanting a city day out. If you don’t want to cook, walk to the 12th Century Weary Friar in the village for lunch or supper.
