Doggie rules

It's a dog's life

As dog lovers we recognise the importance of taking our pets on holiday with us and we provide a few extras to help lessen your holiday load!

On arrival, our furry VIPs (Very Important Pets) receive a packet of handmade Cornish dog treats with a personalised, hand-stamped name tag.

In our garage, a special map shows the dog friendly beaches nearby, and further afield, ripe for exploring. 

We have a fully enclosed garden so there’s no concerns about escapees!

Our utility room is devoted to our pampered pooches and includes: 

  • Four water and food bowls
  • Wet food serving forks
  • Food serving mats
  • Biodegradable poop bags
  • Outside hose attachment for washing down sandy paws
  • Abundance of dog towels for drying of soggy pups
  • Extra bedding
  • Spare leads
  • Tennis balls
  • A special cooling mat for those hot summer days
  • Three giant fluffy throws to chuck over the sofa
  • A medium sized crate is provided in the garage

Doggie Don'ts! 

We welcome our furry friends with open arms but do ask that a few doggie rules are adhered to during your stay:

  • Please do not let our furry friends become a vocal nuisance for our neighbours
  • Do not leave dogs alone in the property at any time
  • Dogs are free to roam around the kitchen/living/dining area, utility, garage and garden but please, not in the bedrooms
  • We try to keep our dogs off the living room furniture, but if yours love a sofa cuddle, please use the giant fluffy throws provided in the utility cupboard 
  • Please do not wash used dog towels in the washing machine. Just leave them in the ‘dog towel’ bin in the garage for us to deal with at the end of your stay
