This was our second stay at The Coach House at Kernock Cottages, and from the moment we turned into the drive, I can honestly say it felt like we were coming home.
Damian was there to greet us as before, but this time it was like we had never been away. He remembered everything about us, our family and what mattered in our lives. Even Solo our dog, who we brought for the first time, took to him straightaway!
The welcome pack was fantastic, with food and drink to last all weekend. We especially enjoyed the bottle of bubbly the first night as it was my wife’s birthday.
Although we never doubted it, it was wonderful to see Solo take to Central Bark and run like a mad thing all over the glorious secure six acres that it provides.
We walked forever each day, enjoying places that Damian recommended as well as returning to a few of our favourites. The hot tub was fantastic to slip into after a long day on our feet.
Everything about the weekend was perfect, and we will certainly be coming back again. So let’s continue to keep this just between ourselves, so we can be sure to be able to book again without the place being full up.

Felt Like Coming Home

I stayed in the Coach House which has all you might need for a break away. It is really comfortable and in a beautiful quiet location. The welcome pack is outstanding, full of local produce. Even my dog was made welcome with a gift. The garden is genuinely secure and the enclosed dog park heaven for rabbit chasers. Damian is very welcoming and helpful. An excellent place to stay if you want a base to see the local area or just a quiet place to get away.

Great place to relax

Just returned from a weeks stay in Tree Barn and can only say it was brilliant.
The welcome from Damian was really friendly and informative and enabled us to settle in straight away.
Our dag Dylan had a fantastic time wandering around Central Bark and the local beaches.
Lunch at Inkies was fantastic and many local walks were a pleasure even though it was raining most days.
The hot tub always gave us time to warm up and relax after our days out.
We will certainly return in the future.
Thanks for a great week

Lovely weeks stay

We had the most amazing week. Our expectations were very high and I was a little concerned I’d be disappointed but I need not have worried.
The property is wonderful, the views and the setting is unbeatable and the hosts have thought of every detail and are so friendly and attentive.
As I have a keen interest in sustainable living I was impressed with the zero carbon measures in place and we were lucky enough to be given a tour.
Our little dog had the time of his life. We will mostly certainly be returning. Thank you for a brilliant holiday.
If you want a truly 5* holiday cottage experience, that not only allows but specifically caters for dogs and is environmentally friendly, this is your place.
We highly recommend the local farm shop and a trip to the falls, but only when Inkie’s is open because it is amazing!! Tree Barn July 2022

Absolutely brilliant [and sustainable living]

To be honest, I really didn’t want to give this review. The Coach House at Kernock Cottages was so perfect, I thought about trying to keep it all to myself! We had the best holiday I can remember having in a long time. The cottage itself was perfect. It had everything you could want, from a top end 5 star finish to a wonderful hot tub tucked away in the secure garden.
We didn’t take our dog this time. We managed to convince the family we had to come and check out the facilities before booking it as a family holiday! Safe to say, we will be back, this time with all the family. I know our dog will absolutely love Central Bark.
Damian and Louise were the perfect hosts. Even though the other cottages were full, and people came and went while we were staying, they made us feel like we were their only guests. That is a rare quality. We were delighted by everything they did for us, including the fabulous welcome pack that awaited us on arrival, complete with a bottle of Prosecco in the fridge.
If I could score Kernock Cottages higher I would, but remember – this is our little secret!  April 2022

The Perfect Place and The Perfect Hosts

I cannot praise this place enough. The tranquillity, location, scenery were all amazing. I had high hopes after following Kernock Cottages for a while on Facebook, and to say we were not disappointed is an understatement. The cottage was perfect. The hosts were amazing. The welcome package for us and our dog was thoroughly appreciated. Perfect location to go out exploring Cornwall as well. We will definitely be back, to be honest we didn’t want to leave! I have already recommended this place to 3 other people! May 2022

Slice of paradise

Our stay here was fantastic. We spent 7 nights at Kernock with our baby son and dog. Damian and Louise brilliantly helpful, around if you need anything before or during your stay, without at all being intrusive. The cottage is fantastically well equipped and located for either a peaceful retreat or a hub to go and explore. The best break I’ve had in a very long time.

Coach House – July 2022

Our stay in Coach House

We found Kernock Cottages after much searching for dog-friendly stays in Cornwall. The description on the website sounded perfect, and the reality was even better. Whilst absolutely perfect for dogs (fantastic welcome pack, the enclosed garden, central exercise facility etc ) there was zero compromise on the humans’ accommodation – all the luxury of a quality self-catering cottage with its own private garden, hot-tub and welcome hamper. We couldn’t have asked for more for our hideaway week to rest and recharge our batteries.
But what really sets this place apart is the personal touch from the owners, Damian and Louise. From their patience and understanding before we arrived, to the arrival meeting, to the local “in the know” recommendations, and checking up on us during the hottest week of the year, we were made to feel not just welcome, but special and looked after. Honestly it was great, nothing seemed like too much trouble.
Since returning home, we have recommended this place to everyone we know and have absolutely no qualms about recommending it whole-heartedly. Thank you, Damian and Louise. We will be back.

Coach House – August 2022

Idyllic retreat

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Heather Barn. Such a lovely welcome, and the cottage was lovely. Gifts for the dogs and a stocked fridge were lovely touches. So peaceful, and nice to have a large area for the dogs. Hot tub was an extra treat. We will be back!

Heather Barn – September 2022

Wonderful luxury dog-friendly cottage

The two cottages were exactly what we were looking for. Very clean, comfortable, and in a lovely location. We were well catered for, and so was our dog! When required, we received information for eating out, walks etc, and there is a full info book in the cottage. We used a local cordon bleu chef, for a meal in our cottage for a special occasion , who came recommended, which was lovely. We will definitely return in the future.

Perfect for our family break
