Occasionally we will also run family weekends in our quieter periods to allow our guests with children and grandchildren to see the glorious area we live in!

If you find you have brought insufficient bedding or towels for you dog, please ask at reception. We have a supply of old towels that would be perfect for these wet / rainy days to dry your dog on entering the building or for them to sleep on. The towels in the Hotel bathrooms are for use by human-beings only!
Please clean up after your pet inside the room and out; a doggy bin is situated outside – on the left as you walk up from the car park. If you need plastic bags or cleaning materials we would be happy to provide these.
If your dog has a tendency to be unsettled and make a noise when left unaccompanied whilst you have your breakfast, then please consider dining separately, or alternatively we offer a room service option.
Please take your pet with you when you go out. At no point must dogs/pets be left unaccompanied in the rooms unless you are dining in our restaurant. Housekeeping and maintenance staff may need access to the rooms.
There are plenty of good walks from our front door. Feel free to use the grounds to the front of the hotel. A footpath leaves directly to “the Beacon” and on towards the coastal paths or St. Agnes. Please ask at reception for suggested routes / map.
If something is damaged by your pet, please notify the hotel management. It is advisable to have an appropriate insurance policy in the eventuality that your dog should nip a passing ankle or chew furniture.
