We stayed in the stunning ‘Dog Friendly’ Dormouse Cottage, Penrose last week and were completely overwhelmed at how beautiful it was – every room was perfect, the attention to detail was extraordinary and the courtyard garden was picture perfect!! Everything you could possibly need was provided to make our stay extremely comfortable. It is the cottage we always wished we could own!
If you ever fancy a Cornwall getaway this is the place to stay – it’s in a very peaceful village ideally located near Padstow. We walked endlessly on the seven nearby broad sandy beaches which are quite extraordinary – all totally dog friendly and all the restaurants and cafes allow dogs as well – we’ve never been anywhere like it – the icing on the cake was the hot shower hose waiting outside in our cottage garden for washing the dogs down when we got home every day - very wet and sandy!
Do try The Catch Restaurant at Mawgan Porth and the Beach Hut at Watergate Bay for dog friendly dining! Also a walk around the path, outside the ancient convent at St Mawgan is magical.
Thank you Eileen and David for a brilliant stay – we’d adore to stay again – if you’ll have us!!.

Dormouse cottage was great base for a week spent in Cornwall. The cottage has everything you could need as well as being finsihed to a 5* standard with all mod cons and a full sky package (which we appreciated when the heavens opended one day). We loved the fact it was a lovely blend of old and new. We mainly based ourselves in the kitchen/diner area and never sat in the lounge the whole week! which was a shame. The village itself has nothing so you must drive to st merryn to the pub and shops etc...There are numerous (7 i think!) dog friendly stunning beaches within a 10 minute drive. We loved going to watch the sun go down at constantine bay. We will definatly be back but may try early spring next time so we can have use of the lovely woodburners. Great accomodation which is dog friendly. Highly recommend and communication from Elaine was first class
The Dormouse Cottage was an absolutely beautiful,family and dog friendly holiday home. On arrival we were wowed by the beautiful garden and the whole interior of the cottage. We enjoyed friendly chats with the local farmer whole told us a bit about the area. As this was our first trip to Cornwall the cottage provided a very comfortable home from home and the informative welcome pack gave us wonderful ideas on where to visit. We highly recommend a visit !
Absolutely wonderful stay and we couldn't recommend it more. We had lovely weather so got to enjoy the beautiful garden with a few meals outdoors but we also spent a few evenings curled up on the sofas watching sky movies! Great location with so many dog friendly beaches and towns within a 10 minute drive in either direction, we visited a different beach each day as our dog is a real beach lover! We also visited the Eden project which is only a 30 minute drive away and we took lots of advice on the places to visit from Elaine's recommendations (they literally have thought of everything!) Will definitely be returning!
Doormouse Cottage is a wonderful authentic Cornish cottage in a great location. The cottage has been beautifully renovated, providing modern amenities but in keeping with the traditional style of the cottage. The kitchen had everything you would want to entertain if you so desired. Having a full Sky package was great as we enjoyed a few films in the evening and live football! The local beaches are easily accessible and our four legged travellers (Oscar and Teddi) thoroughly enjoyed the opportunity to walk on the beach every morning. The cottage is well located to explore Northern Cornwall, Padstow is only 4 miles away and how nice it was to explore Padstow when it's quieter. Thank you for a wonderful stay and we will return to this lovely haven in what is a beautiful part of our beloved island!
