Dog Friendly Holiday Cottages in Cornwall
It is quite unusual to find luxury cottages in Cornwall which are also dog-friendly, but we have even won awards for it! Please see our Dogs page for our few basic guidelines to help us keep Kernock Cottages both 5* and dog-friendly On the Dogs page you will also find useful information on dog-friendly beaches, restaurants and other places of interest. There is only a small charge if you would like to bring your dog. The Coach House garden is fully enclosed, and Heather Barn has an enclosed area at one end behind the hot tub.
Inside the holiday cottages
In all of the cottages except Orchard Cottage, every bedroom has an ensuite bath or shower room and most can be arranged to suit you – either as king-sized or twin rooms. Orchard Cottage (sleeps 8 in 4 bedrooms, with 3 bathrooms) has an ensuite master bedroom, large family bathroom with separate bath and shower, and downstairs bathroom with shower.
The cottages all have individual character, and features include oak, bamboo and Rhodesian teak flooring, beamed ceilings, rugs and a mix of contemporary and antique furniture, paintings and sculptures, making each cottage comfortable and unique.
Each cottage is equipped with a CD player, radio, iPod dock, flatscreen television with DVD and freeview, radio alarms and hairdryers in the bedrooms, board games and books for lazy days in.
Outside the cottages
Outside each holiday cottage you’ll find a private garden, well-lit terrace, built-in barbecue area and hardwood furniture. Each cottage has a deck with private hot tub and gazebo (let it rain, let it rain…) in its garden. There are 28 beautiful acres of mature gardens, woodland, paddocks and fields to explore, an adventure playground and trampoline for children, and lots to do locally.
The cottage kitchens
Each cottage is fully equipped with everything you would expect in a modern kitchen. There is a dishwasher, washer-dryer, oven, microwave, ceramic hob, fridge, freezer, coffee maker, blender and a wide range of kitchen equipment and cookery books. There are plenty of pots, pans, serving dishes and casseroles.
For babies and toddlers – baby-friendly accommodation & Child Friendly Cottages
Kernock cottages are baby friendly luxury holiday cottages in Cornwall. For babies, we have much more than the usual cot and high chair (see our Baby-Friendly tab for the list of baby equipment), which is all available free of charge. That frees up the boot space a bit. Just let us know when you book what you need, and it will be ready in the cottage for you when you arrive. Babysitting can also be arranged on request if sufficient notice is given.
Heather Barn is fully wheelchair accessible, and is also popular with families with toddlers. Orchard Cottage has a downstairs bedroom and bathroom, so is great for family groups who have one member who doesn’t do stairs. We have a wide range of useful things that can be used in any cottage which may be helpful, such as hypoallergenic bedding, an induction loop (for hearing-aid users) and a medication fridge. Please see our Accessibility page for further information.
