Property code: BEESK

A well-presented annexe set in a quiet Cornish hamlet. Just ten minutes from the South West Coast Path, and perfectly placed to explore Cornwall.

Featuring a private garden, sleek decor and rural views, this annexe makes a wonderful retreat for couples looking for a pet-friendly break. It can be found in a quiet hamlet by the rugged northern coast and your canine companion is welcome too; there's even a garden area with a lawn for running and playing. Rise early and take the dog along one of the rambling trails that leads from the doorstep or bask in sunlight while sipping your morning coffee on the patio.

An interior styled with clean lines and calming colours generates a soothing atmosphere that encompasses this place. If you find cooking relaxing, open the glass door to allow fresh air into the kitchen while chopping up your evening meal. For avid readers, you're welcome to select something special from the bookcase for those moments when there's nothing to do and no-one to interrupt your seclusion.

It's a 3-mile drive to the South West Coast Path and the Hartland Heritage Coast, a stunning stretch of moorland, rock and sand beaches. As it's sat on the Cornwall side of the county border, you could take a walk down to Welcombe Beach and cross the rickety bridge over a sandy stream into Devonian territory. Or take a drive in the opposite direction to experience the surfer culture intrinsic to the town of Bude, explore the castle and lounge on one of its sandy beaches.

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

Karin the owner is so welcoming. Then she leaves you to get on with your holiday but is at the other end of the phone if you need her. The cottage is fully equipped with everything you need plus extras supplied by Karin. There is plenty of information in the cottage about the area and further afield. Its a 10 minute drive to the nearest cove. Even Read moreon a cold damp day you can sit and watch the many species of birds in the spacious garden. Very pleased. Hide

North Cornwall

Embark on clifftop wanderings along the South West Coast Path to discover ancient myths and legends; King Arthur at Tintagel Castle, or the giant at the Bedruthan Steps. Surfers flock here to ride the famous swell that carved the dramatic coastline, and Bude and Newquay are havens for the sport. From sandy bays and beaches to the seafood delights of Padstow or thrills of Camel Creek Adventure Park, North Cornwall is brimming with things to do; trails to trek, cream teas to gobble, and adventure to be had.

West Cornwall

Let the history, romance and raw beauty of West Cornwall whisk you through time, into rocky coves and along sweeping sands to Land’s End where the UK slips into the Atlantic. Discover an oasis of flora owed to the rare geology of the Lizard peninsula. You can kayak around Godrevy Island, wander the galleries of St Ives, catch a performance at the open-air Minack Theatre, and still make it to Marazion for dinner: St Michael’s Mount makes the ultimate backdrop.

South Cornwall

Tucked away from the swell of the Atlantic pretty fishing harbours sleep, and lush carpets of greenery roll up to craggy cliffs. Discover the fishing and smuggling history in Kingsand and Cawsand, or walk the South West Coast Path from Fowey to the tiny tidal beach at Readymoney Cove. Sample local ales in St Austell before visiting Charlestown’s tall ships, the enchantments of the Eden Project, or The Lost Gardens of Heligan. From vibrant towns to secret beaches and exhilarating days out, the south has it all.
